NUFORC Sighting 87156

Occurred: 2011-07-03 14:00 Local
Reported: 2012-02-12 16:02 Pacific
Duration: 30 seconds
No of observers: 3

Location: Wentzville, MO, USA

Shape: Sphere

Stationary sphere obversed during storm and high winds

A very strong storm was moving through the area, with winds strong enough to shake our deck. As we were watching the storm, we noticed a spherical object just underneath the fast-moving clouds. The object was a brown or plum color, non-reflective, and remained perfectly still despite the very high winds.

Apparent size was about a fingernail at arm’s length and perhaps 30 degrees elevation. Hard to judge the distance, my best guess would be about 200 yards apparently over a road that distance away. That would put the size at less than 10 feet in diameter?? Though just under a very fast moving low cloud, the object was stationary and remained there until the clouds passed over it.


We have amended the date above. We assume that the sighting occurred in 2011. PD
