Bright Reflective Silver UFO Over UMKC Campus Kansas City Missouri
Date: October 21, 2010
Time: 12:13 p.m.
Object movement: Northwest to southeast, Approximately 30 Degrees East from the Sun.
Object Description: Oval. Two shaded, dark silver bottom, upper bright reflective silver (in the Sun). Undulating at a fast steady speed. Comparison to a soda gas bubble in a glass.
I was walking uphill across the campus, from Oak street near the Administration Building towards Cherry Street :
The sky was crystal clear, visibility 30,000 feet. No birds in sight. No airplanes or helicopters.
A small wind breeze barely moved the tree tops.
I looked up southeast above the treetops at the sky when I noticed a floating shiny object that seemed to slowly zigzag across the sky. I thought it might be a weather balloon or a silver balloon they have at weddings.
It was undulating like a gas bubble in a glass of clear soda. It seemed to go up like a balloon, but after looking at it persistently I noticed it was not going up because it's relative diameter size was not decreasing from my point of view, it was simply moving forward.
It must have been big and at a high altitude for several reasons : A balloon at a high altitude would not have constantly changing and different shades of light/shadow reflection visible. With the reflection of the Sun it looked like an oval shape angled towards the Sun on the upper part. The top was reflecting the Sun light brightly and was easily distinguishable from the bottom part which seemed to change from dark grays to shiny lighter grays.
From it sideways tilt towards the Sun on it's right, it looked almost like it was powering itself with Solar energy.
I looked at it for probably 30 seconds and tried hardly not to blink.
There was no treetop obstruction, which makes it even more strange when I noticed it had simply vanished. I mean, it was there shinning and oscillating and then : Nothing. Blue sky.
I looked around and northeast to northwest a Jet plane, 1/8 of an inch in the sky was leaving it condensed air trail. Other than that no other object or bird was in the air.
Since it was lunch hour, I doubt anyone would have spent their time sky gazing.
