This incident took place on 11-23-11, I had just passed Alaska Regional Hospital and was heading West on Debarr Rd. and had just crossed Lake Otis, where Debarr turns into 15Th. Ave. It was around 11:40am.

The day was very sunny with low hanging scattered clouds. I had been looking Northwest at the low hanging clouds over Merrill Field Airport (Small Aircraft Airport and turned my gaze to my left, which is Southwest, and said out loud to myself "what is that" and there at the end of a low hanging cloud was a round silver metallic object hanging motionless.

I live near this area and I'm familiar with all of the small aircraft and helicopters that land at Merrill field. And this object was like nothing I had ever seen and was completely still. This part of 15th is very busy so I went up the hill and made the first left to see if I could get a view looking East, no sign of the object,I drove around for quite awhile and it was gone.
