Location: Lajes Air Force Base (Portugal), UT
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 10 seconds
none of the below was seen or experienced

At 38.77N 27,01W I was driving on the Lages Air Force Bace, Joint Portuguese, USAF, I noticed a very bright sphere at approx 140 degrees ( runway 14/32 ) It was in close proximity to the eastern sunrise. Can not express distance because of the dense moisture field at the lower levels, but think it was distant.Was not an aircraft as the brilliance was not a reflection from the sun and did not have have an apparent movemement. Had little time to observe, but as a meteorologist, I alwaws look up and can descern movement. Am not a ufo type, but have observed one other visual anomaly here.The brilliance was of another color of the sun, wave length, definitely was not a reflection of an aircraft, extremely white. Was very,very bright. Suggest you query the USAF Radar at this site.
