Transparent lens moving across the sky in St. Petersburg, FL
I was walking around outside of my house, talking on the phone, and I noticed 3 planes flying around. The sky was pretty clear, and while paying attention to one particular plane to the east, I noticed a relatively large transparent spherical object moving slowly through the sky to the north west of the plane. Thinking it was just something in my eye, I began to look away, and noticed it hadn't moved with my line of vision. I proceeded to rub my eyes, look back, look away, and am thoroughly convinced it was not anything in my eye. The stars behind the object appeared blurry, almost as if I was looking through a lens of some sort. As the object proceeded, the stars that were behind it were perfectly clear. This procession across the sky continued for about 30 seconds, before it disappeared from sight. Turning my attention back to the planes in the area, I noticed that all three planes (while maintaining different headings) were all relatively equidista! nt from where the object had disappeared.
I am a software architect by profession, with a background in physics and mathematics. I have never experienced something quite like this, and just wanted to make sure it got documented in case anyone else saw it as well.
