Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 seconds
Metallic sphere sitting motionless with sudden disappearance.

Was driving north on a road running parallel to the Grand River and noticed a metallic looking sphere in the sky. Seemed to reflect light from all around, only there were dark clouds and only partly sunny. The sun was more to the west, but it still seemed to reflect light from the east, or possibly emitting it it’s self. It did not move, and was also windy so I ruled out a balloon.

I was about to pull over to the side and get my phone out to try and get some video or picture, but when I drove under some trees and came back out into an open area (lost sight of it for about 1–2 seconds) it was gone. There was nothing in the sky for as far as I could see.
