Location: Thornbury, Bristol UK (England),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
White spherical craft seen in evening near to Sun , vanishing at incredible speed .

We were outside of my friends house in the evening when there was a sudden light that seemed to come from the left of the sun , and was bright white . For about ten seconds whatever was behind the light was covered in a kind of mist , then it suddenly cleared revealing a perfect white sphere which hovered in the air for the remaining twenty seconds before shooting off to the North at fantastic speed so that it was gone in a second . The whole thing had happened so quickly that we hardly knew what had happened until the craft had long gone . We have reported this to several sites but they will not take our claim seroiusly . Hopefully you will be different . We cannot think of any other explanation for this extroadinary phenonena whatsoever .
