I was in the parking lot washing my car at about 11:45 am. i looked up to watch the planes from hartsfield atlanta airport which fly in a pattern from the airport to the north. i looked to the right of the plane path because i saw an object that at first i thought was another plane - but it was an orb shape. it was not in the flight path. it was a couple thousand feet up - i could see the low intermittent clouds go between the object and me. it moved in 45 degree turns several times with the sun reflecting off its surface. the moves it made were not moves that a plane couldl make. it was definitely an orb and solid. it was the size of an aspirin from my vantage point. it zig zagged then flew straight then turned 45 degrees serverl times then flew on to the north beyong the tree line.
