Full Description & Details
My cousin and I were counting falling stars. She said: "There is a UFO." I said : "I know what a plane looks like at night.." and I pointed toward it, we could hear the jet also. She said: "No. Over there." she pointed above the pasture. We saw a football shaped object moving toward us. It had no flashing lights. It resembled a cloud in color and texture. It was approximately the same size that I could form with my hands. I tried to see it with binoculars but could not bring it into focus. It stopped directly above us and lingered for a few seconds, then it moved beyond our sight. We had noted that it moved faster than the plane we saw. We were in a mobile home so we simply crossed the floor and opened the front door to see a larger portion of sky- it was no where to be seen. I am not able to give a date- but a cattle mutilation was also discovered on the property. I was told that no carrion eaters would touch it, not even flies.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
We were told it was a weather balloon. It was not tear shaped.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
My father was US Air Force. We had observed luminous clouds of gas near Cape Kennedy, Florida. I had seen helicopters at night- they look strange. I had really only read a little bit about UFO's.
