Location: East Bethel, ME
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 minutes
large bluish sphere between storm clouds no sound heard,

Was standing outside of my sister's house in East Bethel that afternoon, Watching storm clouds form.. Looked almost like tornado clouds swirling around, Lightning, wind was blowing the top layer of clouds, To the east, the under laying clouds were going towards the west. looked very violent i noticed an object between the 2 layers of clouds traveling slowly, it had a kind of bluish hue to it. mostly white in the center. it was round almost like a ballon.. At first thats what we thought it may be.. but it was traveling south east.. the clouds were east and west. it seemed to be moving at the same elevation. did not change directions. It seemed to slow twice almost stopping. but then continued. My Brother in law came out of the house to watch it with us. He had never seen anything like that either.

I failed to mention earlier that it was my nephew and i that was first looking at it.

after about 5 minutes it vanished into a very thick cloud bank. My brother inlaw said that he had seen something like that before but couldn't remember exactly when or where. I have also see something like it in the past over the town i live in.. but just thought it was maybe a weather balloon, it was hard to say how high it was. but it was between the 2 layers of clouds.

so i figure it must have been at least 2000 ft, and if i put my thumb up against it..it would just cover it..if thats anykind of an indication.

Well thanks for listening and hope maybe some day the gov. will tell us what some of these things are.

Thanks,
