|Silver orb floating over far westside of El Paso for over an hour
We were on the far Westside of El Paso at my son’s baseball practice. The location of the ballpark allows for a panoramic view of the entire Westside. At approximately 6pm I noticed a perfectly circular orb floating in the sky. It was reflecting the sunlight and was shining silver. At first glance I thought it was a mylar balloon floating up into the sky but I kept watching and this orb was not moving. It was just sitting there in the sky perfectly still. It did not deviate at all from its position or shape. The wind was blowing and this orb never moved, which led me to think this was something else entirely. It was silent. One of the other parents who were sitting alongside me noticed me staring up and asked what I was looking at. I pointed the orb out to her and she commented on how it wasn’t moving as well. Before long all of the parents were looking at this thing. As the sun began to set we noticed the orb getting darker and by 7:00 it appeared to be dark gray in color.
For about 1 ½ hours it sat perfectly still in the same exact spot, then it just disappeared. We did not see it fly away or shoot off. It just disappeared. All of us were left scratching our heads. Very strange.
