Location: Newton, NC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
My daughter and I were swimming and I was looking up to check out a dark cloud when I noticed a metallic sphere going from south to east at an elevation of what looked like 12-15,000 feet above ground level.

It moved rapidly but I managed to get my seven year old daughter in position before it passed where we could not see.

It might have been a Mylar balloon, but it was moving way too fast for what I know.
