sphere accelerated upwards beyond the smoke trail...
Augusta, Georgia - 03-01-16
My wife and I were driving home west / northwest along Riverwatch Parkway. We were admiring the sunset as we approached the I-20 interchange.
We noticed what appeared to be a plane's smoke trail way above traveling to the east / northeast, higher than we've ever seen before.
We then noticed movement below and to the left of the smoke trail about 3/4 of the distance between the horizon and the plane. It was a metallic spherical shaped craft highlighted by the setting sun.
It was about the size of a bb if held at arm's length.
We first thought it was another plane and that we were at an angle which only made it look spherical. Then, to our great surprise, the sphere quickly ascended but in an "S" pattern as if it were taking evasive maneuvers.
It moved up right, then up left, then up right again and then finally it reached near the level of the plane's smoke trail, as if it were passing behind the plane. What then shocked the both of us, was that the sphere accelerated upwards beyond the smoke trail and disappeared, as if it had flown out of the atmosphere.
A few seconds afterward, the plane also disappeared and it's smoke trail evaporated quickly. As for the plane, we speculated that perhaps that had actually been an object re-entering the earth's atmosphere and creating an illusion of a smoke trail.
We knew that the American astronaut was to return from the Space Station later that evening, but this time seemed too early in the evening for that occurrence. As for the metallic sphere, however, we have no explanation.
