I saw a strange object in the sky over my house in Louisville, Kentucky. It happened around 1:30 pm and lasted maybe a total of 1 minute all together.

At first it almost looked like a black line in the sky. It went over a tree and I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I didn't think to much of it and just thought it was a plane, until the object did a complete turn without turning. It turned on the dot and started going back in the other direction, coming back towards my house as a glowing ball or orb of bright whitish/yellow light. It was moving at a steady pace. It then went straight up into the rays of the sun and disappeared. There was absolutely no sound whatsoever.

Clearly it was not an airplane as I live close to an airport and there were 2 planes in the sky around the same time. Since I live so close to the airport, most of the planes are taking off or landing so they are pretty close to the ground and quite distinguishable.

The strangest part to me was that it was in the middle of the day and yet it was so brightly glowing.

I was able to take a few photos of the object; however, my cell phone camera isn't the best so it just looks like a bright light in the sky.
