Duration:5 minutes
White oval meandering sky at noon

I was walking a dog near Lakeside Mall right around noon. I heard a helicopter and looked up. The helicopter traveled normally out of my line of vision, but I noticed a bright white oval or circle very very very high in the sky (much higher than the helicopter had been; if an airplane had been at this altitude it would have looked tiny or almost indistinct).

It was moving unlike anything from nature or a human made craft. It moved slowly in an organic curving pattern, sort of meandering back and forth, toward the sun then away. It almost looked like a paper plate blowing in the wind, however it seemed way too high to be an object from Earth and the distance it was traveling in each motion was fairly long — way too far for an object to be blown back and forth I think. It would also pause and stay still for periods.

I watched it for at least five minutes.

There also appeared to be many swirling white dots around the sun, moving like those fireworks that snake around willy nilly after they launch. It did not occur to me until later that day that I should not have been able to look at the sun in the way that I must have been to see the swirling lights, but the sun did not hurt my eyes until I tried to look back and take video.

While I was taking the video it disappeared.

The short clip shows the object floating in the sky.

The longer clip shows, at the end, an object with two lights appearing and dropping straight down suddenly and disappearing. I did not see this with my eyes because the sun was too bright, but it is clear around :07-08 in the lower left of the sky shown if you zoom in on that region.
