Location: Longmont, CO
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 1
Sphere shaped object moving from East to West, just before Sunset, North of Longmont .

Looking North from my hotel room I saw a sphere shaped object going from East to West. It was gaining altitude at a constant rate and maintaining a constant speed. I figured the object to be a small balloon size until it disappered into the clouds and I realized at that distance it had to be as large as a hot air balloon and traveling at a speed faster then any jet. It was silver metalic, and had a definite sphere shape with the sun light at the horizon shining off of it.
