Dan Wilson:
At 9 p.m. local time, a very bright white or yellowish circular object was observed in the sky at about a 45 degree angle and appeared to be stationary. All the observers indicate that the light/object was very bright. The object was also picked up on ground radar and the radar observer said the object was moving very slowly. The object was described as orange size to basketball size. The object was observed visually for approximately 10 minutes and observed on radar for approximately 20 minutes. There was no air traffic or known balloon release in the vicinity. Among the observers were two Air policemen and a Contol Tower Operator. (Dan Wilson)
