Location: Neosho, MO
Shape: Sphere
Duration:about 5 or 6 minutes
Rotating Sphere with a light in the middle on one area

Note: I immediatly wrote down and drew a rough picture of what I saw, so I'm writing straight from the notebook what I put down after I ran inside and calmed down The object was up in the southern sky, for a while I thought it was an unusually bright star until it began to rotate 360 degrees over and over. It remained in the same spot continuing to turn at a steady pace. I continued to watch in shock as an odd whooshing (it was not wind like sound) sound. I became afraid and stood up and the sphere stopped rotating to where the lit part was in full view to me. Suddenly I could see my own breath, as if the air was freezing, but it was 70 degrees outside. After that I ran into the house, told my brother, got sick and then looked back out to where I had seen it, but it was gone.

This was logged at 1:34 a.m. Central US time in my notebook.

One thing I forgot to note was that when the light was completely out of my view I could see the full outline of the object from the light.
