Description: I was driving my car on the way to the store with my mother in the passenger seat. I came to a stop at a red light, and began talking to my mother about this and that. She was stating what a nice day it was for this time a year.. Being an amateur astronomer I looked up and commented that I hope it would be this clear later that night so I could use my new telescope.
As I was looking up in the sky waiting for the red light to change, something odd caught my eye in the South Western part of the sky. At first glance I thought the usual; possibly a plane or helicopter.. but as I stared more deeply and started to concentrate on what I was looking at, it couldn't have been. It was just hovering there and didn't seem to be moving at a constant rate of speed. It seemed very high up to be a normally manned aircraft anyways. With it being a clear day I could tell it wasn't a normality because there was no jet stream trail, no movement in any particular direction.
As I was studying it I noticed an abnormal reflection coming from it. It was almost as if it was a chrome slightly translucent object. I have never looked up and seen a plane or helicopter cast a chrome luminous reflection that almost hurt to look at because it was highly reflective. I was tapping my mother on the arm telling her to look at this thing, and she kinda glanced up and said, "oh that's just a plane." I said yeah, but it's hovering side to side and is showing a chrome type of surface that is reflecting way too much to be a plane. Plus look how high it is, thats got to be 50,000 feet at least.
The object appeared small but from the height it had to be stationed at.. It must have been relatively large. The light finally turned green after a few minutes of me looking at this thing and I kept watching it as I continued West in my car. As a few miles went by, nothing had changed it wasn't traveling in a certain direction. SO at this point I had the possibility of either a weather balloon or UFO in my mind. A few miles later I stopped at another red light and saw the object again and when i was watching it, it gave off an overcasting reflection that was very noticeable and then it literally vanished. I can't even explain it totally I have never seen anything like this, nor have I seen such a disappearing act performed on something in the sky.
After explaining to my mother, that it had not jet trail, no particular movement, and was chrome in color and oval in shape.. She got really quiet and didn't argue that I am ruling out a manned aircraft.. She is sceptical on things but in this case she did admit that it was really weird and she didn't know what it was. I have always believed in this stuff, but when you see something for the first time ever, it really makes you think. What I saw was Unidentifiable.
