Duration:three seconds
silver shpere climbed slowly then shrank away and disappeared.

The time is approximate. We were driving in the northeast area of town, quite populated, when my wife said "look in the sky!" There was a small (looked about the size of a pencil eraser) silver orb in the sky near the mountains (Franklin Mts.). We were pulling into a gas station when this happened. It moved from where it was to the upper left slowly and then seemed to shrink to nothing and disappear.

Shadow could be seen as if on a orb-shaped ball.

The skies were mostly clear with wispy clouds. Airliner planes were in the air too from the local airport but didn't pay it any attention.

We were at the intersection of Dyer St. and Hondo Pass. Please leave a message if you call.

((NUFORC Note: We assume the source of the report implies a daytime sighting. We have amended the time above to 16:00 hrs.. PD))
