Duration:10-15 seconds
lit circle travling south to north across sky in 10-15 seconds in houston

i've been looking up a lot lately, with the new purchase of a 6" telescope.

If you had any reports from Houston last night (July 13 2008) of an object traveling directly northbound, I saw an unidentifiable object. Bare eyes, no scope obviously.

Completely circular, traveling straight north. (I am on the west side of houston texas).

This object seemed to be uniformly spherical, it seemed to have a glow to it, but not a bright one. But it was a consistently uniform light.

The light did not change brightness, did not have any sort of beacon or blinking as a plane or copter would. And It seemed to move from the southern most point of the horizon to the northern most pointin about 10-12 seconds. (this has to be an incredibly fast speed, as planes and jets take many minutes to pass the entire sky.

Definitely not a satellite, as they are much slower. And definitely not a meteorite as I have seen many, and they seem to disappear half way across or down the skyline w/ a greenish color.

I have been looking to the sky's for many of years for something regardless, and I told my wife, that if i had ever seen a ufo in my life, that last night was it. She just thinks I'm crazy. Are you the one guy who takes reports from his home in washington or something like that, the guy I saw on tv.

I never thought I would contact you thinking I saw an anomaly like this.

This is a serious inquiry. (report)
