It is July 16, 2014, 9:25 pm, the reason I know what time it was because my father and law stated to my sister in-laws that he timed them out of the yard chore that had been done at 9:25 pm July 16, 2014.

During this initial conversation, I looked up into the sky saw a plane coming from the south and the plane was clear enough for me to have stated sitting in front of the wing and the rear of the wing a few times in my life.

While looking up at the air plane, reminiscing about old times, I noticed a oval shaped faintly lit orange object in the sky heading west moving about the same speed as the airplane I spoke of earlier.

I watched this object about the size of a head of a 5/32 drill bit down to a 1/8 drill bit, then all of sudden I seen about 3/4 of an inch of white smoke behind the 1/8 inch drill bit size object disappeared. (Shapes and sizes are my point of view of the flying object from where I was standing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, while looking up into a clear blue sky the plane was about an 1 inch long in the sky. )

Keep in mind the plane was heading northeast, and the object was heading west.
