A "parked" 737 in the sky accompanied by an orbYesterday morning at around 9 am when I was driving to Huntsville, I saw a stationary 747 or 737 passenger plane parked in the sky about 100 feet above a field just to the right side of the road. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me at first because the car was in motion and I was definitely driving towards the nose of the plane, but as I got closer I realized that it was truly just sitting there parked in the sky. To its right (my left) was an orb dancing around in the sky. It seemed to reflect the sky on all its "sides" and appeared perfectly round and solid. It was no bigger than a person would be if they were curled up in a ball. When I realized that it was indeed parked in the sky, I pulled over and snapped a photo with my digital cell phone camera. It isn’t that great but I have it if anyone wants to see it, and I will try my best to get it to sharpen in photoshop, but the actual raw photo taken at 9 am on 1-9-09 is in an email I just sent to this site. The exact location of the craft was approximately ½ mile north of the Toyota plant in Huntsville on Pulaski Pike Rd. I don’t know why it chose this location because there is only a field full of llamas and alpacas, some donkeys, horses and cows. There is also a stream near by with fish in it. Maybe it was surveying the area or something I don’t know. But after I took the picture I was beside myself. Back in 2000 when we lived in Texas, the whole family (kids, me, hubby) saw the exact same thing. A large passenger plane parked in the sky, about the size of a 737 or 747, and it too was parked so low you could see every detail of its wings, engines, windows, paint job. This one yesterday was painted with a silver grey bottom and orange on the sides (like a Northwestern Airlines plane). It had no "underbelly" rocket boosters or anything, there was no way in the physical world it could have been hovering because passenger planes that are made to stay in flight while moving at 600 miles an hour simply drop to the ground if they are! motionl ess.About 30 seconds after I parked the car, it started to go away (I guess the occupants saw me?) It went slow for about 5 seconds then disappeared going in an upwards north easterly direction very fast. Also, the sphere that was dancing around everywhere disappeared. Oh and the weather for the sighting was perfect, 100% clear sky, no clouds anywhere. 9 am, broad daylight.((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and she sounded to us to be quite sincere, and quite credible. We have looked at the photo, taken with a cell telephone, and the objects is reminiscent of a swept-wing airliner. It is ambiguous, we believe, but the witness has volunteered to send NUFORC the same photo, after it has been "processed" by a photo lab. PD))
