No of observers: 1

Location: Columbus, OH, USA

Shape: Sphere

Rapidly moving night time sphere object, heading north with no lights or strobes or sound.

I often sit outside to have a cigarette and enjoy looking at the night sky. It started getting dark about 30 minutes prior to my going outside tonight. The skies are clear and the moon is about half full and brightly lit. While looking up at about 6:02 pm, I noticed a spherical object moving North at a very rapid speed and the only light from object seemed to be from the moonlight only. It appeared faintly lit by the moon's light only and had no flashing or strobe lights and faded into the northern sky. It also appeared to move in a straight line heading north. There also was no sound coming from the object. Our Columbus (Ohio) International Airport is also about 2 miles North from the sighting location. Maybe their radar picked it up?
