I can,t exactly remember the date.....but it was early saturday morning at about 1.15 am......My friend and I were going home after a night out.......something startled my friend with remarks of "oh my god whats that" I stopped the car immediatly to have a look. We were amazed by what we saw, a Large round bright firey object in the western night sky. The object had no tail,made no sound but was travelling in downward motion, very slowly..it illuminated the whole area in which we live. We decided to pursue this abject, i was exceeding the speed limit by some margin, when out of nowhere, 3 police cars without there lights flashing speed right past us(I assume in pursuit of the same object). Not one didn,t even bother stopping me to issue a speeding ticket....as this happened my friend yelled out "it,s gone".. it just dissapeared...I thought it might have crashed.....it was still up there when it just dissapeared....he replied.. The next day we listened to the radio for news on last nights incident even bought the newspapers for the next few days,...not one single mention....We couldn,t believe it, how something so big and bright could go unreported.....to this day we are still very confused on what we saw
