I was googling this due to a couple of things I saw over the past few days, and I came across this thread.
Not sure it helps, but just to add my 2cents:
Last week, probably about 5 days ago, I took the kids outside and we were headed towards the pool. I was herding them, and I happened to scan the
sky, as I do from time to time. There were lots of fluffy clouds and it looked like it was working on raining at some point.
I came across a black thing in the sky in a hole in the fluffy clouds, which at first I dismissed as a large bird, but then I looked at it again more
closely. I could see that it was hovering, and that is was spherical in shape, maybe 2-3 feet in diameter. I'd say it was about 1/2 mile away, same
altitude as the clouds. I don't know anything about altitude, so I can't really say it in feet, but it was about the size of the big round end of a
pin held at arms length.
I watched it hover there for about 15 seconds, then the sphere began to sink quickly to the ground. It went straight towards the ground and I lost
sight of it as it went behind a stand of small trees, maybe 1/2 mile from my house. All I could say to myself was "what did I just see??????" over
and over again.
Yesterday, I was again outside in the yard, no kids with me this time. I could see a dark shape off in the distance, no sound coming from it. As it
got nearer, I could see it was a matte, black helicopter, no writing on the sides, still no sound. I watched it for about 10 minutes, and it was
making a large circle of the area, not in the same exact spot( a little more to the north) that I saw the black sphere, but near enough to make me
