Shape: Sphere
I watched a black sphere slowly moving in a SW direction.

I saw a black sphere slowly moving in a WSW direction. It was very black and the sun seemed to reflect off the front every now and then. There was no noise. I observed this from the airport fire station were I am stationed. It was going in a direction that the usual aircraft flight pattern comes from. It looked to be about a quarter mile away when first noticed at 340 degrees. In about 1 minutes time it seemed to be at 270 degrees and about 1 mile away. I had to leave then when a fire run came in. The next day I compared what I had saw to a black huey helicopter. The sphere was very black unlike the huey and might have been up to 10 feet in diameter as it was smaller than the helicopter at a comparable distance.
