Location: Jewell, IA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:90 minutes
We saw a glowing sphere with no blinking lights or sound. It was moving from east to west. And it stopped at one point.

Myself (67) and my son (38) had just gotten home and were about to go in the house. I looked up to see the pretty, bright moon. Sky was clear and I saw a round, bright glowing sphere moving from east to west almost above us. Hard to know how high but I would say higher than propeller planes fly.

It was silent and no blinking lights. It flew in a straight line for about 10 seconds, and then to our shock.. it stopped! That is when we went into the house!

I looked out our south window and kept track of it. It moved very, very slowly east and by the time I went to bed at 1:45 a.m. it was sitting in the west sky above our town - not moving. So, I don't know what time it moved on.
