Location: Fort Myers, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 min
Metalic object of sphereical shape exactly like the object I reported on 4/3/06 in the east 18:30 estimated 60 to 100,000 feet 60deg

The object I saw early this evening at 18:00 was a metalic ball exatctly like the object I had reported on 4/3/06 about one hour earlier. Visablity was clear to about twenty miles and the object was about 60 degrees on the horizion at an estimated altitude of sixty to one hundred thousand feet. It was in the southeast and drifted slowly easterly when I was no longer able to track it. It appeared to be of metalic structure as it reflected the sunlight like an aircraft but had what I perceived to be a dark shadow to it when it was closest to me at between five and seven miles away.

I was out to dinner with my wife in a viewing position about five miles north of where I had reported the object seen on wensday eve. I had went out to the car for something an I looked up and there it was. I exccitedly went back in for my wife and tried desperately to point it out to her but It was already fading away to the east and she was not able to view it. As a side note I almost feel like it knew I'd be looking for it again I don't know if this is common in these situations are not.

There were jet aircraft in the area during the sighting all of which were in the approach or departure pattern to the southwest Florida international airport.
