silver sphere sighted in sedona

my girlfriend saw a silver spherical object pass behind a rock formation today around 4 to 4:30pm. she is a serious skeptic, but exclaimed when she saw it: "now that looks like a ufo!". the object passed behind a rock formation before i could catch a glimpse of it.

((NUFORC Note: An update submitted by same witness. PD))

an update on the sighting of a white falling fireball over sedona- the most logical explanation of what i saw is probably the dropping of an iridium flare, although this fell much faster than the 'iridium flares' that were given as the explanation of the famous phoenix lights.

((NUFORC Note: An Iridium "flare" is caused by the reflection of sunlight off the flat solar collectors on an Iridium satellite. The term, "Iridium flare," therefore, refers to a sudden illumination from an orbiting satellite; it does not mean a burning object. PD))
