Full Description & Details
While looking up into a tree I observed through the leaves this circular shiny reflective object that appeared to remain static in the sky. I called my adult daughters attention to it and she agreed that it was not a plane or helicopter, and that it did not seem man-made. I called 3 other people to view and they were also dumbfounded as to what it was. I phoned my husband at his work and he, with 4 other co-workers, went as far as to view it through one of the colleges high-powered telescopes and all they could see was the same circular shiny reflective object. In the photos that I took with my phone you will see what appears to be star-like, near the sun, in the middle of the day.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
All who observed this object would agree that it was not man-made.
I hold a Bachelors degree and am continuing studies to become a teacher.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I am quite sure that we are not the only life-forms in the universe.
I wish that the government would release information as to the reality that we are not alone in our galaxy and if we need to be alarmed about it, or not.
