Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
From where I seen this it's exactly 8.25 miles from the Iowa Air National Guard 132nd Wing.

On the aforementioned date the Des Moines airport had to close due to heavy rain we had came here to purchase a car at a local dealership, afterwards we went and ate at Denny's and as we were walking out to the car after eating I looked north and at 45° about 500 to 800 ft in the air I saw it; a sphere that looked identical to the center petrospere on display at the Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum moving through the very well lit low hanging clouds from east to west against the wind.
