Small Sphere Observed At Close Range

I have been investigating an unusual event which occurred in the parking lot of a shopping complex at about 10 P.M., after the stores had closed. Three people were talking when one yelled out for the others to look at something. A small spherical object, "absolutely round and shiny" and about the size of a tennis ball was observed at a distance of no more than 10 feet away. The object which moved in a slow straight line down the center of the road, was only about 6 feet off the ground and appeared silent. THe object appeared to be powered as it moved down towards the end of the complex. At one point it zig-zagged to the right, then to the left, and soon went out of sight. One witness who has a military background, stated that whatever this device was, it gave him the impression that it was a probe of some type.
