|Driving home from town and looked to my left and saw a circular object with a dome-shape on top. It was eye-level but the funny thing was it looked like it was just floating there or suspended . I looked again and it was gone. It was metallic in color-silvery and was not real high up which surprised me.
I had been to town which is 7 miles from my house. The time was approximately !:30 in the afternoon. I have a habit of watching the clouds and sky ( even when driving) I look up and am a very observant person. Something caught my eye on my left and when I shifted my eyes to the left to see what it was i saw a metallic object-shiny - it looked like a sphere with a circular something around the outside. The top was definitely a dome shape. I pulled over and tried to find it again but it was gone. The thing about it that was strange was the fact that when I first looked at it from the window of my car- it was at eye level and it seemed to be effortlessly kind of floating along it was going in the direction of almost direct East. I was on Highway 50 West going West. I also thought it strange that it was so low in altitude. There was no exhaust or anything but it was just kind of gliding along effortlessly. The size of the object was about the size of my fist at arms length. I do not know how to measure altitude but I am 4 11 and sitting in a small make car (1991 Subaru Justy) and it was eye level.
