Sighting Report
Occurred : 2/28/2008 11:30 (Entered as : 2/28/08 11:30)
Reported: 2/28/2008 7:06:48 PM 19:06
Posted: 3/4/2008
Location: Fort Worth, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 mins.
Stationary small white object in the northern sky, not moving.

At approximately 11:30 AM. while at work, I looked up into the northern sector of the sky at about the 1:00 or 2:00 position. Difficult to see was a small sphere like object, white in appearance and resembling a star but rounder edges. Two co-workers also saw the object. It did not move for a period of at least 30 mins. It was very bright, sunny day, with wispy high clouds that moved fairly rapidly as it was quite windy. My first thought that is was possibly a weather balloon. It was difficult to spot, and the fourth person was not able to see it because of the bright sky, though the sun was behind and above us. I took photos with my cell phone, but strangely there is the pole I used as a marker but instead of the very small object we were looking at there is an oval large bright light. This happened in two consecutive photos. I was wondering if anyone else has reported anything like this today. There was a tremendous amount of jet traffic and contrails in that sector of the sky. As far as I have checked there were no unusual celestial events going on either. I thought I would go ahead and report this since we have had some ufo sightings in this area recently.

((NUFORC Note: We just spoke with this witness, and we found her to be quite credible. She had contacted the National Weather Service, and Carlswell AFB, attempting to determine whether they might have launched weather balloons, and they both reported that they had not done so. We do not know what the witnesses observed.

Also, the witness reported that there was quite a strong wind at ground level, and that the object appeared to the several witnesses to remain motionless for in excess of 30 minutes. PD))
