Reported: 6/6/2017 8:15:52 PM 20:15
Location: Reno, NV
Duration: 1 hour +
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|I noticed a white spot in the sky, far higher than balloons or kites. I grabbed binoculars and I could tell that the spot was a light ring, like a circular fluorescent light.
Two commercial planes passed beneath the white ring and they appeared smaller than the ring. The curious thing was that the ring did not move at all. . . Anything I know to be that high in the air moves at least a little bit, even a hovering helicopter or a tethered balloon.
I measured this object from my roof for 20 minutes and it did not move a slight amount. I have been watching it for about an hour and no movement. While it is hard to see beyond the light ring with my binoculars, it kind of appears that there is a metallic body in the center.
I had my wife and two children see it as well. I took a picture with a cell phone magnified 8 times so it is clear to see the dot, but not magnified enough to see the light ring in the image.
Wish I had more powerful zoom equipment - do you have any resources?
((NUFORC Note: Photo shows a small, white "blob" in the daytime sky. We do not see the "ring" shape, indicated by the source of the report. PD))
