Part 1: The first observation was a little before 8PM on 4/20/2017. My husband, who was driving, and I, were traveling east on East Broadway. We were between Broadway Bluffs and Trimble when I noticed something very low in the sky in front of the car. It appeared pale blue in color, almost sky color, about the size of a pea at arm’s length, maybe slightly larger. It was on the passenger side of the car, so I had a good view of it, it seemed to be spherical. I did not see any appendages, it appeared very smooth. We stopped at the light at Trimble to make a left turn which gave me time to watch it. (My husband watched in the rearview mirror. He confirms my observations.) At this point I’m thinking it must be a balloon. It stayed at about the same height and distance from the road as it flew west over Green Valley Drive. It was approaching a tall stand of trees at Hinkson Creek when it paused in midair and rapidly descended diagonally out of sight. Ok, not a balloon. Maybe it was a drone? About 35 minutes later we went to the area where we had seen it go down; very secluded for being in a city. Hinkson Creek is at the end of Green Valley Drive, which turns south and becomes Moon Valley Road. Open fields and trees.
