|Object crossing low in the sky over rooftops of homes. About 1 mile from where we were, and it was approx. A basketball size from our distance. Spinning clockwise and gonig in s straight line for miles. Than started upward at a 90 degree angle towards the moon for as far as we could see and than disappeared. Dark gun-metal in color. Nothing seemed to interfer with the direction it was going, wind or anything, always on straight course.
Basketball size, moving foreward motion, spinning clockwise, moving straight ahead. Seem to know as if it knew where it was headed. My daughter, age 11 called me mother, age 44 to the window stating that she was looking at a UFO. I came over to the window seeing the same object. At first thinking it was a baloon floating in the sky and them noticing that there isnt a baloon on earth that could travel like this object. Moving in a straight line. Wind or anyting could not change its course. We watch it for arounf 10 minutes, couldnt tell you how fast it was traveling. Then it took a 90 degree angle path upward towards the moon. It was still daylight outside but the moon was visiable in the sky. The day was in the mid 70 degree temp. and the sky was as clear as it could get.
