Location: Orlando, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration: two minutes
My wife came home from work telling me that while she was at work, doing a security check outside of her work, a co-worker stated,"what is that thing in the sky?", my wife then reported that they both witnessed a grey illuminated sphere with panels running down the length from top to bottom, around the middle of the craft were dark horizontal elongated diamonds that seemed to go around the circumference of the craft. It was also noted that the object had no external lights, but appeared to be illuminated from within, not flickering, but a solid steady light. The size of the object was thought to be about the size of an automobile. My wife also stated that the object was flying so slow as to almost appear to be hovering but was clearly moving from west to east across the sky, the object had no sound whatever, but both witnesses believe that the object seemed to be powered as even a balloon floating with the slight breeze that night, would have drifted quicker than this object. Both witnesses were very insistent as there are many blimps in this area, that this was not an airship, as by law they have navigational and blinking becons and are loud. Both insisted this was something strange and feel that it was definately not a balloon of any sorts or other conventional aircraft.
