Location: Waterloo, IA
Shape: Oval
Duration: 5 Minutes
A shiny silver object floating stationary then made tight but short movements.

It was a sunny afternoon, with minimal clouds in the sky & a slight breeze. I was walking to my friends house who lived 7 houses away. Something gleaming in the sky caught my eye. I stood in place and started staring at it. Immediately I did process of illimitation as to what it could be but had 0 answers. That is when I started to believe it was not from this world. It was oval shaped in a vertical position stationary, It was silver and shined as I could see the reflection of light bouncing off of it. For over 2-3 minutes it stood absolutely still along with me as if we were both watching each other. It never moved so I continued walking towards my friends house keeping my eyes locked on it. 20 Feet into my direction I noticed it started slowly moving in a straight line maybe a 50 yard distance travel then came to a stop. It did the same thing in another direction then stopped, maybe a total of 4-5 times. The movements it made were extremally precise. I took my eyes off of it to round a corner into his yard and when I looked back up it was in a different location (300-400 yards) from original spot. It was floating SLOWLY away from sight until it went behind the trees northbound.
