Shape: Light
Duration:2.5 minutes
One, spherical light orb that is slow moving then rapidly accelerating up into clouds.

The craft I saw was round sphere shaped object that had a orange-yellow light to it. It was a cloudy day and the craft was moving fairly slowly in my direction. Then it stopped probably about about a mile away from and proabably two thousand feet off the ground. The object was probably about the size of a house.

After it was stationary for about 35 seconds, it flew straight up into the clouds. I could see it disappearing through the clouds with the affect of a flashlight shining in smoke. I found it very werid because airplanes always fly from east to west over my house and this was coming from the south going north. And I don't think there is an aircraft known to have a flight pattern like I saw that evening.
