Shape: Sphere
Duration:five minuets
Saturday April 04/2009 around 12:30 pm - Atlanta Georgia. Weather clear, sunny, and blue sky's.

While working in the yard (north side) I was watching two commercial jets as they were flying over the Atlanta / Marietta area, at a (high altitude w/ com trails) clearly not local Hartsfield traffic.

I noticed a shiny round / spherical object at a higher altitude then the two intersecting commercial jets. The object did not appear to be moving a first but after observing it for a moment or two I realized it was tracking very slowly from north to south/west.

After a few minutes I went for the binoculars and was only able to view it for a moment before losing track of it. I could not tell any details other then realized it was larger and still metallic looking.
