|Small metallic spherical object seen hovering on more than one occasion over Hwy 54 in Plover
I was driving south on I-39 between Porter RD and Highway B, I looked off the southwest towards the Plover water tower. Just to the west of the water tower, what looked like a few miles, and would place the object somewhere in the vicinity over highway 54, a small, spherical, metallic object appeared to be hovering at an altitude of approx. five thousand feet. You could see the sun reflecting off the bottom and the top was darker where the sun wasn't reflecting from it. I kept checking every couple of seconds out my window at it to see if it was moving or to figure out what it was but it was just stationary. Anyone from this area knows the only aircraft we get around by us is crop dusting planes and small single engine props. and no other planes were in the sky that i could see at the time and this object was not moving at all eliminating the possibility of it being a plane, and the metallic appearance means it was not a star or the ISS. I went to look on! e more time it looked like the object just shot off due west and in a pretty vertical trajectory gaining altitude in a split second and was gone. I wasn't going to think anything of this except for the fact that I saw the exact same thing in the exact same spot while driving in the exact same spot about a year or two earlier which is weird. I also was reading reports on here about other sightings and noticed someone saw something similar in the Stevens Point/Plover area and thought maybe there is something to this sighting after all.
