Location: Syracuse, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:40 min
Bright white light in the shape of a huge sphere over Onondaga County/Syracuse and moved very fast in all four directions.

It appeared to be a massive sphere... as big as a star in the sky. When i was driving i first saw it. It was emitting a huge white light.

After about 30 seconds of looking at it it shot up about 5 thousand feet in the sky in about .2 seconds. It wasnt high in the sky. Pron no more than 7,000 feet. There werew clouds out and it was in front of the clouds. It moved very smoothly like it somehow controled the gravity around it. It had cycles of where it was bright white to where it was yellowish/red.

If you where looking up in the sky it was a little below the tree line and above the horrizon. I also saw planes flying toward it.

The planes must have been 1/100 of the size of the obeject.

Then after about 40-45 min the light dimmed and I saw it vanish .
