|Strange gray object spotted in my small town
I was heading home from work on Wednesday, October 13th, 2010, on what was earlier, a rainy day. When the evening came around, the sky was beautifully clear and blue. I was driving, 10 and 2, and looked over my left shoulder. I was heading West bound. I saw something in the sky and passed it off at first. I took another look over and it was still there. I continued to observe it for roughly a minute. It was stationary and I was just WAITING for it to move. Since it wasn't moving I figured I would get my cell phone out of my pocket and video it. I turned my head toward the road to concentrate on driving, pulled out my cell phone, turned on the camera, and the object was gone. It was shaped sort of like a cross. The center was more of a thin oval. There was a small protrusion on the top of the object and a protrusion on the bottom that was about twice as long as the one on top. It was VERY low to the ground. Probably about 200 yards from me, and 80! -100 feet in the air. There is little to no air traffic in this small town. We have a couple of bright yellow crop dusters, and they're hard to mistake.
