National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/3/2011 14:00 (Entered as : 07/03/12 14:00)

Posted: 3/13/2012
Location: Wentzville, MO
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 30 seconds
Stationary sphere obversed during storm and high winds

A very strong storm was moving through the area, with winds strong enough to shake our deck. As we were watching the storm, we noticed a spherical object just underneath the fast-moving clouds. The object was a brown or plum color, non-reflective, and remained perfectly still despite the very high winds.

Apparent size was about a fingernail at armís length and perhaps 30 degrees elevation. Hard to judge the distance, my best guess would be about 200 yards apparently over a road that distance away. That would put the size at less than 10 feet in diameter?? Though just under a very fast moving low cloud, the object was stationary and remained there until the clouds passed over it.

((NUFORC Note: We have amended the date above. We assume that the sighting occurred in 2011. PD))
