|Orange sphere seen in Pingree Grove, IL
I was driving north on Rt 47 on the way to the Ford Dealer in Huntley, Illinois. As I approached the intersection of Rt 47 and and Rt 20, I saw an orange, round ball in the sky directly west. It was flying low enough that I could tell it was not a balloon (there was no basket and the shape was completely spherical), and it also was not a weather balloon. The sky was clear, and there were clouds in sight. As I passed under the bridge at Rt 47 and Rt 20, the orange object appeared in the sky directly north. It had apparently moved quickly, as it was not in the west anymore. It seemed to be perfectly still and observing. It made no noise. I tried to take a picture and clearly saw the object in the viewfinder of my phone's camera. However, when I went to view the picture later, the object was not there. I showed the pictures to a second person, who was also able to confirm that the orange sphere was not visible.
