Springfield, Illinois A Bright Yellowish White Orb

Date: October 1, 2005
Time: 5:45 a.m.

I took a telephone call from a gentleman who resides in Springfield, Illinois. The fellow reports that he saw a bright yellowish white orb heading from the east to the west from his location.

He explained it was still dark out at the time of his sighting and daylight starts to creep in around 6:30 a.m. There were no flashing lights that could be seen and the object was moving pretty slow. He also noted that an airplane was seen about 5 minutes after the event and he was able to see the NAV lights on this aircraft. He figured the object was at a good altitude when it passed over head. The light stayed on a straight flight path, not making any unusual maneuvers at all. The witness also stated it was large enough that he could see that the object was circular in shape. The circular object was seen for approximately 10 seconds, as the fellow was up in a tree stand. The man also was able to follow it for this length of time, but seeing it through the trees which eventually blocked his line of sight to the object. This was the first time the witness had seen anything and he believed it to be rather unusual.

Thank you to the eyewitness for the report.
