Duration: 1 minute
Ball of white light slowly traveling across the sky at a relatively low altitude

At 8:48 PM PST, I was sitting on my balcony like I do every night. I am clearly able to see the flight paths of airplanes and helicopters in my vicinity. Also, I occasionally see satellites at much higher altitude with a much higher rate of speed. The object that I witnessed may have only been up to 5000 feet off the ground, traveling at a very low rate a speed. This ball of white light was fairly large and I would assume an object that big would’ve fallen out of the sky at such a slow rate of speed. This object did not blink whatsoever and traveled from the west to the north east. The wind was moving to the south at 2 MPH. Clearly, this ball of solid white light did not correlate to any of the conventional aircraft I have seen in the area. Also, to make sure it wasn’t a satellite, I cross referenced when I saw this object to any satellites on a live map and nothing appeared. According to Brown University, a satellite needs to maintain 22,000 miles ! in altitude traveling at about 7,000 mph. This object was like seeing a car drive in a school zone it was that slow…
