Spherical Orb UAP/UFO 11-7-2020 Houston, TX Video

UAP/UFO Sighting on 11/7/2020 in EaDo Houston, TX When: 11-07-2020; event began at approx. 6 pm at dusk Weather: Clear, no major clouds Camera and Vantage Point: iPhone SE (2nd Gen) with digital zoom, recorded from a nearby 5th floor rooftop. The UAP was observed flying over Hwy 59 in front of the Marriott Marquis Hotel located at: 1777 Walker St, Houston, TX 77010 UAP description: Shape: perfect sphere with metallic finish Lights: glowing or pulsating or brightening/dimming light which seemed to turn on and off or turn away from view while the UAP was perhaps turning.

Sound: It emitted no discernable noise. There was background noise heard in the video of traffic 2 blocks away on a raised freeway.

Size: I was able to compare the size while it was flying over moving cars just below it on Hwy 59. It was between the size of a small hatchback and a mid-sized SUV or sedan.

Acceleration Speed: Silent and high speed acceleration much faster than known aircraft able to hover can move such as a helicopter or a V/STOL fixed wing aircraft like an F-35 or Sea Harrier jet.

What was observed just before the recording started: At about 6 pm, I was in awe trying to decipher what it was I was witnessing. This extremely bright and pulsating/glowing on/off spherical craft making no noise was making uncanny aerobatics, quickly zipping away into the background out of sight beyond even more buidings downtown. At this point the light seemed to go completely off and I was able to observe the perfectly spherical shape with my naked eye. Within only a few seconds, it zipped back into view closer to my position, once again above Hwy 59 at an altitude of approximately 450-600 feet. I estimated this based off of the fact that the craft was slightly to the right of the 28 story Marriott from my vantage point and just above the rooftop. After the 45-60 second aerial demonstration (unrecorded), the UAP moved closer to my position while moving to my left at which point I started recording. Some moments of particular interest in the video are when the light is see! n to get much brighter and when you can see the brown colored elevator shaft of the building I was on in frame with the orb and how it moves rather quickly to the left just before disappearing out of view behind the building.

Observers: Primary observer is myself and I am a 40-year-old male with a degree in marketing who works in sales in the oil and gas business in Houston, TX. Interests include learning to pilot fixed wing aircraft as well as rotary wing aircraft. When I was around 12 years old living in Brisbane, Australia, I saw what seemed to be an airplane flying along the horizon make an instant 90 turn launching straight into space at extremely fast rates. This was my only other UFO experience.

Secondary observer is my wife, a 28-year-old Argentine female who was distracted and editing TikTok videos on her iPhone while listening through her AirPods.

Conclusion: I have always admired aircraft my whole life so I have some good knowledge about helicopters, airplanes, and drones. I cannot identify what it was I saw and the most likely thing it could be is a drone. I have never seen a car-sized drone perfectly shaped sphere able to emit no noise. I am a logical person I can only conclude this is a secret government aircraft or something not of this planet.
