Posted: 3/17/2004
Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 to 7 seconds
On the afternoon of May,18, 2002, at 2:20 p.m., I was sitting in a lawn chair enjoying the fine weather. There were a few scattered fair weather clouds floating by, but for the most part the sky was clear and blue. Suddenly,in the northwest,something caught my eye.It appeared to be a shiny ball,heading to the southeast at high speed. Not a disc on edge, but a ball! At arms length, I estimated it to be the size of a BB. If it were manned and surely it was,it probably was at least 8 diameter. It "flew" across 50 degrees of sky in 5 to 7 seconds. It was NOT a Mylar balloon or a weather balloon. Its course was straight and true. It must have had intelligent control as it passed over the western edge of Atlanta,Ga. and through the airways and the traffic patterns of Atlanta's Hartsfield Intl. airport.
