they must be some kind of probe. The shape is so innocuous and non threatening. I would have definitely been frightened of a saucer, cigar or a
triangle. A ball was nothing.
What I meant by the "contrail formation is much the same as jet airplane contrail formation. In the case of the jet exhaust, water vapour in the
exhaust exits the engine at a high temperature and then condenses when the air cools from contact and mixing with the surrounding ambient air which is
at a lower temperature. What I thought was maybe the sphere was super-cooled (at least while it was moving fast) and this is what caused the
condensation in the air surrounding the sphere as it flew through the air.
I do agree that I also felt absolutely no feeling of threat at all. I kind of was thinking "how nice" and "how wierd" at the same time.
Of course, I agree with those who post here saying this proves nothing to them. But I know what I saw and I certainly figure it was very advanced
technology, using physics that has never been applied on earth for flight or spaceflight. Not a balloon. Balloons don't fly at a thousand miles an
hour and then stop within a hundred feet or so.
