Shape: Sphere | Duration: five to six hours
Source:

fast moving orb behind cloudsI went outside my apt. and it was overcast. Looking up I saw a glowing orb, going counter clockwise almost directly overhead. It was north of my position. This was at appx. 2300. I went out thinking it was perhaps someone shinning a flashlite which was reflecting off the cloud cover so I moved toward it, it moved away from me cont in a northward manner. I had a large magnum flashlight which I shot upwards to see if it was something like that, but my beam did not produce any reflection off the clouds.I turned and moved back to my apt and was going to get in my car to drive out on the street to see if I could locate the source. Thought it could be a saleslite.However, there was no beam from the ground up, and this orb looked as if it were behind the clouds. As I drove out, another person drove in, I stopped and asked this person if she knew what that lite was. She told me it had been seen at Atascadero State Hospital (which I live next to) from the courtyard all night and no one could figure out what it was. She remarked on how fast it was going, I also asked if it appeared to her that it was moving somewhat jerkily, she agreed.At 23;30 it suddenly disappeared. I drove out to see if I could tell where it was coming from, there is a new blockbuster but it is not close to this area, and the orb was centered over where I live. Blockbuster shut down at ten pm. I drove there but could not see any of the equipment used for producing a saleslight. I will have to go in and ask them if they had a sale lite up, but if they closed at ten pm and it went off at 23;00 there should have been someone there taking the light down and I went right over and the place was locked up with no sign of anyone.I have seen several UFO's in this area this week, also have two other people in another part of town. This is a samll town, it was very strange to see this orb and it moved very fast in a counter-clockwise motion with no light coming up from the ground. I only saw it short time, if I had not stopped to ask this person if they could id the light for me I would not have known it had been viewed for several hours from the State Hospital. Cannot firgure out where or what it was. Silent also.((NUFORC Note: If the object was viewed for 5-6 hours, we doubt that it was a UFO. PD))((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))Glowing orb moving counter-clockwise very fast veiwed my several witness in different locationsThis is in regard to earlier filed report I made of glowing orb seen in clounds above my apt in Atascadero, California. I called the police of Atascadero and reported my sighting and asked if they had recieved any calls of a similiar type. The dispatcher said that at about seven pm they had recieved a call from Templetom reporting the same object. The Dispatcher said no police on patrol during the evening saw this orb. Clound cover was about 500 feet. Templeton is located about 6 miles north of Atascadero.((END))
