Shape: Circle
Duration: 1-2min
Characteristics: The object changed color
Saw a silver round object high in the sky, unsure what it could be.

I was driving my car on the way to the gym when I noticed something in the sky that looked to be at an altitude a bit higher than your normal airplane flys. I watched it, and it seemed to be the shape of a small circle, silver colored. It was moving slowly in the direction which I believe is to be south of where I was. I was still driving, approaching a red light, and kept an eye on it.

Once I had a feeling that it was not an airplane, I decided I would turn left into a buisness area to get a better look. Stopped at the red light, I was able to watch the object for a good 30-45 seconds. I noticed it was still moving slowly (I was completely stopped), and the color appeared to be a white/silver color. But every few seconds it would turn a darker color, almost as if it was rotating, and the other side had a different color. Maybe it was the reflection of light on it, but that did not seem the case to me.

When the light turned green, I quickly turned and pulled into a parking lot. When I got out to search for the object, I could not find it. I had no idea where it had gone, maybe it was still around, but I could not see it.
