On august 24th, 2016 at approximately 0600 hours, i was on my back porch smoking a cigarette. my porch is on the west side of the residence and it faces toward sturgis. i was looking at the sky to see if i could see anything strange which i do every morning. weather conditions where clear and dry, and there were only a hand full of stars out.
i was scanning the sky when off to the northwest i observed a large orb type object, white in color suddenly appear traveling westbound in a straight line direction. the object was glowing and traveled for approximately 5 seconds when the object expanded and vanished.
the object was approximately the size of a penny and when expanded it was 4 to 5 times it’s size staying circular.
this incident has boggled me because the reaction of the light. i have played the incident over and over in my mind. i then realized when the light expanded into a larger circle and vanished, the light had closed shut like the object had entered something.
