I was coming home about 1855 when I pulled into my driveway. Above and beyond my neighbors home I noticed a bright orb hovering. It reflected the sunset orange, and that is why I noticed it; besides it was a completely clear blue sky. I thought it could be a balloon or some sort of odd looking helicopter, but it didn’t have any rotors.
It appeared to have rods or antenna coming out of it. I went to my backyard to get a better view. I appeared to be less than a mile away over residences. I got my camera about 5 min later and set up my tripod. I took a few photos. Then got my video camera and began to shoot video too for about 20 min. Over the approx 45 mins that I watched it, there was some wavering like it was being affected by air movement.
At times it would descend behind a large tree, then reappear slowly as it came out from behind the tree. The object remained relatively stable then started to slowly drift away to the SW until I couldn’t see it anymore because it was too dark. I was intrigued by it. My photos showed that it indeed had 3 rods coming from it.
