pewter spheres over interstate

This is an old report but I’ve never told anyone but family. It was back in December 1998.

I was driving home from business training in Dallas. I was between Cincinnati and Cleveland on the interstate driving north. It was dawn and I had been driving since the previous afternoon so I was pretty tired to say the least. It was a clear morning and the sky was just turning blue. There were very few cars on the highway.

I rolled down the window to get some cold air on my face to wake me up. I leaned my head out and after a few seconds I tilted my head back to get some wind on my neck. At about a 75 to 80 degree angle above me a pewter colored sphere just dropped into my view way up at the edge of the atmosphere. It paused for a split second then zipped toward the west so fast that my eyes didn’t even try to follow it.

A second later another one dropped into view and followed the first one, then a third and then a forth.

I rapidly braked and pulled onto the shoulder without taking my eyes off of the spot where they had appeared. I got out and watched for several minutes but nothing else happened.

When I say sphere, I could only see the bottom of the….what ever they were so from my perspective I could almost imagine them as being a ball shaped.

They moved so fast to the west that getting a profile perspective as they moved off was impossible.
