Location: De Land, IL
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
Sphere thru telescope exploded into several smaller spheres.

Notice a bright star at 12 o'clock high around 20:00hr, strange for seeing a star this early bc it was still light out.

Grabbed my 12" telescope and once focused it appeared to be a sphere with an object going around it attached to a tether. Soon the object exploded in to several smaller spheres going in all directions. These spheres would vanish and then reappear for about 5 minutes. Then all went quiet and no more spheres.

This object appeared the evening before at the same time but I didn't have my telescope ready..

Could this be a weather instrument? If so, why two evening in the row at the same time??
