Shape: Sphere
Duration: 1 minute
Brilliant sphere floats above the Wilmington Suburbs.

My son and I were on our way to his guitar lesson in Wilmington, Delaware. We stopped for a traffic light in order to go Soutg on US-202. As we waited for the light, both our eyes were caught by the gleam of an object that was about the size of a pea held at arms length, and at about 60 degrees above the horizon. The object was at least several miles up in the atmosphere, as it was blocked out momentarily by clouds. We were stopped, and we had the chimney of a house across the street as a point of reference. The brilliant orb was suspended motionless, and then began to drift slowly in a south-westerly direction. After about a minute, it took offlike a bullet in the same direction, disappearing from sight. An amazing sighting!
