Duration:Approximately 4 minutes
A ball of white light hovered in the afternoon sky, vanishing and reappearing 3 times, before finally vanishing for good.

I am an undergraduate college student. I was going for a walk around my neighborhood today, and as I was revelling at the beautiful clear blue sky, I noticed an object appear in the distance. I gazed at the object in the direction of north at roughly a 60 degree angle. The object appeared to be a white circular mass, perhaps a white ball of light, and it was hovering in the clear sky. It moved very slowly for about 2 minutes, and then it vanished for about ten seconds, then appeared again. Over the course of the next two minutes, the object vanished and reappeared 2 more times before vanishing for good. After approximately 4 minutes of hovering, the object was out of my sight.
