Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
Silver sphere shimmers into focus for about five seconds before disappearing.

My husband and I were outside preparing to grill steaks. A couple of ultralight planes fly over fairly regularly and were making their trip North that afternoon. As we watched them fly over, a silver sphere shimmered into focus about 20 feet above the ground near the corner of our porch. My husband spoke at the same time I did. I said, "Holy crap!" He said, "did you see that?!?" Had he not seen it and spoken also, I probably would've just attributed it to some crazy anomaly that I was seeing because of the angle I was looking. From my vantage point, it seemed to shimmer back out but he said it shot to the East from his viewpoint. (We were facing in such a way that our lines of sight were perpendicular). I had never seen anything like that before. It kind of reminded me of a giant bubble with the iridescent shimmer just before it became a solid silver. Then, again, as it disappeared, it became iridescent before it completely disappeared.! We live on a military facility but didn't say anything for fear of sounding a little crazy...or of inciting panic. It hasn't been back but we always watch for it when we're outside.
