Shape: Sphere
Duration:45 seconds
I witnessed a glowing sphere darting across the sky and making a spiral maneuver.

I was taking a walk as I usually do at lunch. It was August 27, 2007, at approximately 1:20 PM. A large butterfly flying approximately 40 feet in the air caught my eye because of the shadow it cast on the road. While looking in that direction I spotted the very quickly moving glowing sphere.

This sphere looked to me to be about 20,000 feet and about half the size of a typical jet airliner. It had a slight glow. I tried looking at it without my sun glasses and had a very difficult time seeing it. With my sun glasses I could see it rather well. It moved many times faster than anything I have ever seen before. It would move then stop and hover. At one point it dropped and went into a spiral maneuver. At the end of the spiral it stopped, hovered for a few seconds, shot directly up, stopped and hovered, and then disappeared into the clouds with a tremendous speed.
