Occurred : 10/22/2006 16:00 (Entered as : 10/22/06 16:00)

Location: Paoli, WI
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
Metalic aerial object seen from vehicle to the west of Paoli, WI.

I was traveling north through Paoli on Sunday and was looking at some of the cloud formations when I noticed a silver object hovering between a fading contrail and a cloud.

There was unlimited visibility that day, and the blue of the sky contrasted the clouds and the object.

The silver object appeared spherical and a great deal of sunlight was reflecting off of it. The sun was to the left of the craft from my perspective.

I glanced down to see if I could get my camera and pull over, but as I turned back it was gone.

I was traveling on a busy highway, so I am not sure if I was the only witness.

Even stranger was that after discussing this with my family, my dad said he was driving through Paoli in the dark at night and saw a red meteorite that appeared to contact the ground. It landed right outside of Paoli, on the Friday before.

I will email an illustration of what I saw.

((NUFORC Note: Illustration received, which indicates clouds, blue sky, contrails, and the object, which the witness apparently observed. We suspect that there is no relationship between the daytime sighting of the sphere, and the fireball reported above. PD))
