Sighting Details

I don't have the exact date when I witnessed seeing this ufo;however, I do remember that ufos were seen from Olney, IL to Evansville, IN. More Specifically, I remember hearing that a mothership or a large UFO was seen above one of factories in Evansville, IN and it caused me to hear about it at the time in the town of Olney in which I lived in. I believe it took place in 1997, if memory serves me correctly. Also I remember hearing people telling me that they heard the Air Force had said they had dropped flares. What I saw was no flare. EVENT: If you drive north from Olney and take ST Marie road north, you will come to Rave town road, where on that night myself and a friend took a right.. and we stopped on Rave Town Bridge. There we exited the car, not seeing the ufo yet.. but upon exiting the car. A half mile to a mile down the river south, hovering just above the trees was large sphere that glowed orange and yellow. I remember we were just like what is that? That's weird etc. That was pretty much the extent of the verbatim at the time. We stood there watching the ufo for roughly 30 minutes. During this time, it never moved once, never made a sound, it was just there. After roughly 30 minutes we decided to leave not knowing what we were seeing and the friend I was with was becoming a little nervous. So we drove back the way we came, back to ST Marie road. I remember looking back as my friend drove, threw the back window of his car,, and it was still there, until we were out of sight of it and I could see it no more.
