While looking up at sky I noticed a bright light hovering above the sky. then I noticed a jet airliner traveling in the same area and I noticed the Bright Object was further away and Brighter than the jet. Then the object began to shift to the East at a very slow rate at the same time it's glow was changing from bright white to some what of a fireball color. it changed directions several times. I took a picture of it with my digital camera while a second jet airliner was crossing the same vicinity. I'm not sure what it was but I could almost make out a Spherical object just hovering. Please get back to me on this Image that I took of this event.

As I said before the object appeared to Spherical in shape while glowing brightly, I noticed the sun's reflection of the jet was sort of bright but it wasn't nearly as bright as the object I was observing, and the object appeared to be much more further away than the jet. That's why I was at a loss for an explanation. It was so bright and there were no clouds in the sky, It was Sunny out. The way it changed directions was very awkward. It was very subtle but quick. When I took the picture I thought that was enough of that. To my surprise when I get home all I see is A bright Blue sky. Then I started changing the Contrast of the JPG and Zooming in and to my surprise, and out of all that blue sky appears this glowing object again, round in shape with a very strong bright energy glowing from the center. I'm not an expert. You be the judge. Please get back too me.
