Full Description of event/sighting: It was July 4th evening, my husband had taken our sons to see a fireworks display, and I stayed home. I decided to go outside and try to tape some of the local neighborhood fireworks. Although I am an avid skywatcher, UFOs were the last thing on my mind as I was trying to get the fireworks on film. I set up a tripod in our yard and started taping toward the west since the neighbors across the street were setting off a pretty good fireworks display. A few minutes into taping, I noticed a light in the sky coming from the west heading east. I knew it wasn't a firework so I waited for it to clear a tree line and get closer to our house. When it started flying over our house west to east, I noted that there weren't any little flashing lights to indicate it was a standard airplane or the like. It was just a glowing solid white orb or sphere if you will, floating steadily through the sky on a straight course.
Not too fast nor too slow. It made no sound that I could hear. My husband called during this time to check in, and so I was a little jumpy with the tripod but I managed to tape a good chunk of it before it disappeared into the clouds in the east. As I mentioned, I frequently skywatch, so I am pretty familiar to what is a plane and what isn't. I am still trying to figure out how to transfer the DVD to my PC though. But I did manage to get some stills. The object was taped on a DVD cam. I wasn't going to report this but a wise friend advised that it may be best to report it.
