Object Flight Path
About three years ago, I was flying a kite, at about 5 pm in August on a clear sky day. the kite was diamond shape, with the with about 6 feet. the string was exactly 500 ft long and I had it at full length extended. All of a sudden a charcoal color orb appeared to the right of the kite. I estimated the diameter of the orb at about 2 feet and it floated at about six feet to the right of the kite.
As I was in the middle of a soccer field, across from my home, I decided to slowly walk back toward my home, as the garage door was open and I knew exactly where the binoculars were located. As I started to back up the orb remained in the same location as I started to pull the kite back toward my home which was at a distance of over a football field away.
I kept my eyes on the orb and realized it was not a balloon or any other recognizable object. In fact the orb was very shiny, perfectly round and it appeared to shimmer on its perimeter all the way around. There was no noise or increase or decrease of distance between the orb and my kite. I must have the orb in view for over ten minutes.
As I approached my garage, I stopped and looked again at the orb, it was still there; then I quickly went inside the garage, grabbed my binoculars as I held on to the string. When I came our of the garage, and looked at the kite, the orb was gone. I repeated the event the next and and a few days later, but nothing like this happened again.
