Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: The Dalles, OR
Shape: Sphere
Duration: approx 2 minutes
I observed a spherical shaped object that appeared to be white with a grey shadow flying north to south between the Columbia River and Eagles Caves over The Dalles. It flew from the Caves towards Sorosis Park.

It was a very windy day but this object flew perfectly straight without ever moving up or down or changing speed. I watched it until it went out of sight. I was not sure if it dissappeared, landed or where it went.

At first I thought it was a balloon but after watching it for a few minutes I realized that a balloon would be all over the place in that high of wind, the object appeared to stay perfectly in mid air with the wind not having any effect on it.
