Yampa, Colorado (United States)

Sighted on Sunday 26. August 2001

Shape: Sphere | Duration: 00:02:00
Source:

A friend and I were backpacking in the Flat Tops Wilderness area and were camped at Keener Lake when we saw what appeared to be a bright star/satelite traveling steadily across the sky. Upon closer examination it was much larger than the brightest star (times 10) and had a spherical shape that looked like it was reflecting sunlight in the upper atmosphere or had a light of its own. At that same time a commercial airplane flew over on a different heading at normal cruise altitude and it did not reflect any sunlight, so if the object was reflecting sunlight it was very high which would make it very large. It was present for a couple of minutes as it traveled NW to SE before it went below the horizon. There was no sound associated with it, while the sound of the commercial jet was quite apparent.
