|I went outside to smoke a cigarette and look at the sky as I always do. It had been raining earlier and it was now clear sunny and windy.
I was in the driveway by my front door looking up toward the south west when i spotted what I thought was just a white Gull way up in the sky. It looked to be just floating on the air then it made a small circle and started moving in an unwavering line to the north east. It then looked to me like a small white sphere.
That's when I realized it definitely wasn't a bird. And it definitely wasn't a plane. There was a plane flying parallel to it heading passesd it and it in no way looked like the plane. nor did it stray from it's path when the plane had passed it.
I knocked on my door to get my mom's attention still not taking my eyes off it. I pointed it out to her. She got went to get me the binoculars but when she got back it had dissapeared behind a small wispy sloud and didn't come back out on the other side.
