Sighting Reports 2008

Woman Sees Circular Silver Object Enter Cloud in Daytime Sky

Date of Sighting: June 29, 2008
Time of Sighting: 11:30 AM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: July 12, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About 20 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Galesburg, Illinois (W. Central IL About 30 MI From Iowa Border)
Latitude: 40.95 Degrees North
Longitude: 90.38 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: (At Nearby Daveport, Iowa) Skies Were Broken (Mostly Cloudy) at 2,800 Feet, with other cloud layers at 4,100 Feet and 5,000 Feet Respectively. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the Northwest at 14 MPH With Gusts to 21 MPH.

Description: I was traveling west on I-74 past Galesburg Illinois. I observed a UFO. It was a circular object, half silver and half bright white traveling upwards towards a large cloud. It began slowing down as it approached the edge of the cloud. It hovered for a second, then entered the cloud and appeared in a small hole just at the clouds edge hovering for another second. Then it entered the cloud mass. I awaited it's exit upon the other side of the cloud and it remained in the cloud for the next 20 minutes. It seems after much researching on the internet UFO sites,( a first for me) that there are multiple sightings within the past year in our northwest areas. Thank you for giving me a place to report my experiance. It's my first and also rather exciting!

Comments: This sighting is significant because the witness made the observations during daylight hours and had the object in view for a considerable period of time. The associated clouds and "small hole" also parallels other sightings of objects. The witness said that she was driving west on I-17 in her report. The highway number has been corrected to I-74 which runs near Galesburg. The bottom line is that I have no explanation for this sighting.
