Duration:20 TO 30 SECONDS
August 8, 2006 Lancaster, PA at 1 pm I saw a steel blue oval shaped object traveling rapidly in a straight line in front of the clouds

We were on our lunch break. A co-worker of mine was explaining how rainbows form inside the ice crystals of stratus clouds. I looked up at the sky and my attention was immediately grabbed by an small object flying through the sky. It was very small, but I could DEFINATELY identify it's color and shape. It was oval shaped...almost like the shape that a ball assumes if you put pressure on it. It was not as flat as the stereotypical 'flying saucer' shape...more round. I immediately thought to myself..."that looks like a freakin' UFO"!! I stared and stared as it flew rather quickly across the front of the clounds. It's color was a very dark, steel blue. I tracked it across the sky with my finger. My other coworkers were returning from their lunch breaks also. I was pointing and screaming..."Look! What is that? What is that?" My coworkers were yelling back at me, "Where? Where?" I I was freaking out, jumping up and down, yelling "Right there! Right there!" But no one saw the stupid thing. I was in shock as it disappeared from sight behind the roof of our office. I am still in shock that no one saw it. I've been running around the office trying to talk with the people who were out there...and they look at me like I am nuts. I am submitting this report because I want to know if someone else saw something, or if there was a weather balloon, or jet fighter flying over Lancaster County, Pennsylvania at 1 pm on August 8, 2006. I know people think I'm imagining things. I really want some type of affirmation. I know what an airplane looks like. I know what jet fighters look like. THEY ARE NOT ROUND!! Was it a weather balloon? Can they travel that fast? This thing was not floating. It didn't hover. It didn't start and stop. It didn't fly sideways. It flew in a straight line. It was fast. IT WAS OVAL shaped! It was DARK BLUE! I am a college educated professional woman. I don't believe in extraterrestial abductions and all of that sci-fi stuff. I would really like to explain this. I know people think I was hallucinating. Perhaps I was. I hope that someone out there saw it also. I hope that it has an explanation. If not...then I need to do some serious thinking.
