Baton rouge USA
late September 2011
Globe or cone shaped object hovering over southern baton rouge, la at 9:05am local time, if object was size of small acft then was at about 10,000 msl if was balloon then possibly 15000-20000 msl. object was stationary, and reflectes sunlight very brightly. as glint from sun disappeared objects approx shape was observable. scattered clouds at about 200010 msl wind was from the north approx 10-15shape kts. i have been a pilot since 2003 and cannot identify object.
We sent a report into mufon - myself and spouse witnessed 6 craft!.
I saw the object in the daylight at around 9am local time. Im not sure if it had lights but the videos I saw made me think of a saucer and the object I saw was either spherical or cone shaped. There were typos in my original post, the clouds were at 2000 msl not 200010 lol. But the what made this a tricky craft to identify was the fact that the cloud layer was drifting south at 10 to 15 kts.
If the object was say the size of a Cessna it would've been close enough to observe movement along its flight path. This object was hovering. It was close enough to see that it was not a helicopter, if it was a large balloon, then I would estimate its altitude at about 10000 msl which would've been too high for a passenger balloon. If it was a weather balloon (which was my first guess) then its altitude could've been as low as 7000 msl. You can bet if the wind is pushing 10 kts at 2000 then its probably pushing 20-30 up at 7000-10000. No balloon is going to just hang there in that kind of wind. But there it was, just hanging out. I can't explain it.
