Location: Dallas, GA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:4 sec
yellow 'perfect' sphere crossed entire viewable sky in about 4 sec., flashing off/on intermittently

Went on back porch to check telescope viewing conditions, saw it out of corner of eye, then again as it flashed back on, was able to guestimate when it would 'come on again' which it did directly in front of me, and one last time at the other side of viewable horizon, total 'on' flashes 4 or 5, covered about 150 degrees of sky in 4 sec.This thing was moving very fast, couldn't tell distance, made no noise. I always had wanted to see a UFO,have always been interested in them, now wish I wouldn't have seen it, as I'll never know what it was, or its origin. I even called Art Bell, spoke to him off the air, he mentioned on the air that "? will prob go the way of most UFO sightings" meaning unreported.He asked me to call Peter Davenport, he seemed to be able to tell that I wouldn't. This is why he mentioned it when he returned to the air.
