Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 Minutes
Black Sphere moving silently west against wind currents

Black Sphere object originated in south traveling due north.

The black sphere was traveling about the speed of a turbo prop plane, but silent. Faster than a helicopter, but slower than a jet.

It continued on a calm windless day north, then turned 90 deg. to the west and continued west at the same speed until it just disapeared into the distance. It did not move like a balloon, and traveled the wrong direction for a balloon, prevailing upper winds were heading east.

It left no contrails like a jet much higher at the same time.

I took pictures with a 6M digital camera, and zooming into the picture reveals only a black sphere.

I have no idea what it was.
