The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
Sitting on deck watching storm clouds when a black ball appeared to the northeast at the base of a cloud. it remained for about ten seconds and disappeared. it was very dark and had defined edges. not like it’s surroundings. it didn’t move that i could tell, just vanished. i estimate the size at that distance to be quite large, maybe 1-300 feet. i was not able to retrieve my phone in time to get a photo. i am prior military and law enforcement.
