Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
One spherical silver object was sighted for 15 seconds in the central Tucson skies below a plane with contrails heading East .

I was making my daily trek to my job from Picture Rocks to downtown Tucson (19 miles one way) along Silverbell (a road that parallels the freeway). I saw one spherical shiny silver or white looking object in the sky heading East about one inch from object a plane with a contrail, this plane was heading East far above the object. I looked away for about 45 seconds, and then looked back and it was gone. It looked like it was above central Tucson - I was longside the public golf course on Silverbell.

I looked for this object for about 4 minutes and kept searching for a plane or the morning balloons (people hire them for rides in the mornings-because our winds are less here in the mornings, and less planes to contend with because we have an airport).
