|Walking my dog, I hear a constant whooshing noise coming from the north. I walk south and look behind me and see an orb of light shoot.
Walking my dog, noticed a constant whooshing sound similar to that of cars on a highway, only I don't live next to as much of an active street as this sound is making it seem. Not to mention it sounds alot like it is coming from the air above the distant northern area. If it is just a road, I never noticed the noise. This peaked my interest and curiosity, and I started walking my dog south in the direction of the neighborhood's dumpster to throw away a trash bag, away from the noise with my back to it, occasionally looking backwards into the sky. A little over halfway to the dumpster I look behind me once more, and I see an orb of white or gray light shooting across the sky about 3 or 5 times faster than a nearby plane would. It was at no point stationary, and I saw it moving from right to left at about a 35 or 40 degree angle downwards, and I lost sight of it when it went behind the horizon formed by nearby trees and houses. If you were looking straight dow! n the horizon and moved your eyes about 10 degrees upward, that is where the object was in terms of height/distance. No sound from the object, and I am unsure if the whooshing is related. I can still hear it now however, about an hour or less later. Everything appears noisier than usual tonight, and there seems to an increase in air traffic, however I do often see many aircraft due to living somewhat not far from an airport. From my terrace I have a large view of the sky because of the empty space caused by the lake.
