Date of Sighting: October 19, 2009
Time of Sighting: 6:30 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Detroit, Michigan

Description: I was working on the 18th floor of my apartment building in downtown Detroit when I noticed something floating around the two smoke stacks on the power plant near my place. It seemed to be hovering directly through the smoke of the stacks, and then around the two stacks. Then it would float a few blocks away and then back to the stacks. At this point I had been watching this thing for about 8 minutes or so when I ran to grab my camera and returned with my girl friend and my brother-in-law. So I snapped off these pictures which I can't explain. I have eight pictures all together. My girl friend thinks its a base jumper or a kite. I'm pretty sure it's not either of those.

Additional Information Sent by Witness: Here is the address of that plant. It is the Detroit Edison Madison Substation located at 509 Madison Avenue, Wayne County, Detroit Michigan.

Note: Analysis has revealed that it is unlikely that the photo has been edited. (I edited the photo for presentation purposes.) Analysis shows no suspension strings or apparatus so the object is not a kite or other tethered device. The zoomed image (see above) shows a football like object (complete with white ring). However, given the observed movement the object is obviously not a football. The additional photos (see slide show) display the object at varying magnifications as the witness was zooming in and out in successive photos of the object. The slide show contains seven photos. Given current information I do not have an explanation for this object.
