|Dark sphere underneath clouds moving east to west - afternoon.
Was driving on Howell Mill Rd. that afternoon on the way back to work on Antone St. Saw a dark object/sphere with naked eye that was moving slowly from north-east to south-west. Sphere was to the west of Howell Mill Rd./the Atlanta Waterworks. I stopped my vehicle and tried to find out what this object could be. Then the sphere stopped in mid-air and hung underneath the clouds. I only saw the object with my naked eyes, but it was round/circular and had no wings or rotors or tail or tailwings ... it was just a round sphere. Observed it for about a minute just hanging there. The size of the sphere was at that distance about 1/16 of a full moon. Distance to sphere was about a mile. Dark/black in color. I then very quickly left the area to pick up a camera and binoculars, but the sphere was gone by the time I came back ... (from now on I will try to keep a camera with me at all times). I am a professional commercial photographer in Atlanta, and this is my fourth observation of an UFO over Atlanta. Previous sightings include spheres/stars moving, and a "meteor" fireball.
