Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
|A Spherical/Cylindrical object that suddenly changes to chevron shape and abruptly disappears.
I was in my Pickup Truck headed north from work at 4:45 pm on the afternoon of 5 March 2020. The sky was clear with no clouds but did have a slight haze to it.
As I came into the town of Princeton, I noticed an object to my north at about a 45-degree angle. The object was approximately 2-3 miles in front of me and appeared to be the same altitude as most commercial jets fly.
I believe the object was heading in a northerly direction as I watched it for approximately a minute and the object never moved to the East or West and did not appear to be moving toward me. It was either headed in a northerly direction or was stationary.
The distance it was from me made it appear baseball size and to my eye it appeared to be Spherical, but I believe it was more Cylindrical. It had a very bright silvery aura around the whole object. I thought it could be the sun shining on it, but the sun was in the West and the aura encircled the whole object.
Approximately a minute into viewing the object it changed into looking like a chevron pointed toward the ground and about softball size. The object appeared to glow brighter than before. Within 2-4 seconds after the shape change it abruptly disappeared.
