daytime large sphere

My cousin and I were sitting in my backyard (in approximately the center of the city)I was facing south and he was facing me.The evening was dead calm,there wasn’t the slightest breeze and my cigarette smoke rose straight up about four feet before dissipating.It was just after seven pm but the sky was still blue.Then quite suddenly a perfectly round sphere the size of a softball at arms length came into view.It was moving from southwest to northeast horizontally across the sky.I said “Hey whats that”?My cousin then turned,saw the object and said slowly “I don’t know.”It was rusty-orange in color and crossed 70 degrees of sky in fifteen seconds(assuming the width of my fist at arms length is ten degrees)The object had no appendages whatsoever and was completely silent.It moved from my right to left fairly slowly and was approximately 200feet off the ground.Its altitude did not change as it moved.I was very exited and said something to the effect of “it must be a ufo”we lost sight of it as it moved northeast behind some trees.My cousin thought it looked more reddish than orange but I thought it looked more like the color of rust.I called the airport for a possible explanation but could not get through.No one in my neighborhood saw it that I”m aware of,and there was never any mention of it from any media source here.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
