I know you are here to plant the seed of doubt and all, but are you serious? These Metallic Spheres have been seen since at least the late 30's early 1940's. You are gonna tell us that the U.S. has had them all that long? And are dumb enough to expose them in the newspapers like that in the most important war at that time?
See guys this is how COINTELPRO works. It seeds, and seeds, and then you are a robot of controlled thoughts. Not that I want to particularly accuse Alter-Ego of being in a government agency, but you still work the process. Someone has seeded you and now you pass it on to others and seed it in them.
If you ever see one of these, the feeling you get will be so strange...
well I have expert knowledge that those silver orbs are 1500 MPH - weather ballons.

By the way, I've been flying airplanes for almost 28 years (USAF and airline). I know airplanes.
From the UFO Examiner
OH, May 15, 2009 - Observed a silver sphere.
I was in my truck, a 'dock-high' box style on I-77 heading south going to Akron from Cleveland at 2:35 in the afternoon. I do local freight deliveries for a living.
The weather was 72 degrees, road was dry, sky was bright nearly cloudless with clear blue sky, no haze.
Just past State Rt 18 is the State Rt 21 split where I-77 curves to the left [mileage marker 136] after which I-77 travels for a straight section about two miles long.
I had just completed the curve and was beginning this straight section eastward. Naturally my point of focus is on the road and my mirrors. But in my peripheral field of view I noticed up ahead and slightly to the left of the freeway a bright spot low in the sky. It was either directly above or beyond a wooded area adjacent to I-77 known as Fort Island Park in Fairlawn.
Looking directly at it I saw the bright light to be what seemed to be shiny silver sphere. I would say it was about one mile ahead and a hundred yards to the left of the freeway. It wasn't real large [huge] but wasn't tiny either. It was about the size of a quarter held at arm’s length.
I often drive this road between Cleveland and Akron. At first I thought ‘that’s curious, WTF?’ My first thought was it seemed similar to and was positioned relative to the freeway to one of those aviation warning devices suspended along high tension lines seen near airport runways but those are normally bright orange. I dismissed this possibility as I knew there weren't any airports over in that area. I continued observing it noticing its reflective qualities strugling to justify what I am seeing.
Then for some reason I decided what I was seeing was a blimp that just happened to be pointing directly head-on and so it would appear spherical and that any moment the blimp would deviate and I would see the normal side length appear. Keep in mind that Akron is home base for Goodyear's blimp and it's not uncommon to see it flying up to Cleveland for Indian's game coverage so seeing a blimp is not unusual around here. I stared at it for a good fifteen seconds or so. I remember saying to myself 'what is that??? What is it? It was a good distance away so detail wasn't clear but it seemed as if it was a mirror like reflective quality. I remember thinking I'll get a better idea what it is when I pass it up ahead.
I looked away because I needed to checked my mirrors prior to changing lanes from center to the slower right hand lane. After successfully changing lanes I tried to relocate the sphere it was gone. I thought it must have moved momentarily out of sight behind an approaching tree line and I would see it in a moment passing by but it never did reappear.
The object appeared relativly stationary. I did not see it move from it's original point.
Coincidentally a few minutes later when I was in central Akron area there in the sky was the real blimp which is painted primarily dark blue with the word GOODYEAR down the side. Nothing close to what I saw up the road. I realized this blimp [the real one] is much smaller than the object I’d seen earlier particularly because this blimp was closer than the object I saw previously. I knew it couldn’t have been the same object because I was going a lot faster that the blimp normally travels. It was only when I saw the real Goodyear blimp that I couldn't explain what I'd seen earlier.

We are dealing with Star Wars. It involves the combination of creating an atmosphere that will support electromagnetic waves, ground-based, electromagnetic field oscillators called gyrotrons, and space based ionospheric heaters. Particulates make directed energy weapons work better.
Thank you for the input easynow. The Florida video at 2:18 does show the same kind of object I saw.
Personally, I've gone way past accepting what I saw 34 years ago. What really irritates me is how I've treated this incident over the years. I had absolutely no compulsion to tell anyone for about 20 years. Then I started thinking about it, and finally started using the internet to search for similar sightings.
. Years later I told some friends while partying what I had seen and all they said was give me some of what you are on.
This report hit home.

It hit home because of the similar feeling of keeping it to myself. And it makes me wonder how many others are out there who feel the same?
And finally for your sighting. There is definitely a story to be told. I look forward to hearing the whole saga. I hope you find the proper way to tell it soon.
UFO sighting over Basel, Switzerland in 1566
On August 7, 1566, at dawn, many citizens of Basel (Switzerland), frightened, saw during several hours the black spheres involved in a formidable aerial battle, invading the sky of their city: "at the time when the sun rose, one saw many large black balls which moved at high speed in the air towards the sun, then made half-turns, banging one against the others as if they were fighting a battle out a combat, a great number of them became red and igneous, thereafter they were consumed and died out
UFO 'battle' over Nuremberg, Germany in 1561
At dawn of April 4, in the sky of Nuremberg (Germany), a lot of men and women saw a very alarming spectacle where various objects were involved, including balls "approximately 3 in the length, from time to time, four in a square, much remained insulated, and between these balls, one saw a number of crosses with the color of blood. Then one saw two large pipes, in which small and large pipes, were 3 balls, also four or more. All these elements started to fight one against the other." (Gazette of the town of Nuremberg).
The events lasted one hour and had such repercussions that an artist, Hans Glaser, drew a woodcut of it at the time. It describes two immense black cylinders launching many blue and black spheres, blood red crosses, and flying discs. They seem to fight a battle in the sky, it also seems that some of these spheres and objects have crashed outside the city.
