Reported: 1998-10-17 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 5 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Carbondale, IL, USA

Shape: Sphere
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object

I saw a spherical object at a distance. It had a slight green glow. It just appeared, then took off in a northeast direction very quickly.

I almost didn't report this because I was the only one who saw it, but I told my boyfriend, who is fairly well educated in this area, and he sent me a link to your page. I saw the picture of the sighting in CA and decided that it was similar enough that I'd send you a report. THe differences between this and that report are the direction it traveled and the one I saw was not as green, just a green haze around it. I have always believed that people do see them, but I have never had an experience until now. I hope there were others in the area who saw this too.
