Location: Adana (Turkey),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 minutes
The object was motionless

During the summer of 1999 I was waiting at Adana bus station in the south east of Turkey and saw a large crowd gathered looking upwards. At first I was not sure what it was they were looking at. Then I too saw the silver sphere shaped object which was motionless. It was at an altitude of that which was much higher than a commercial plane, and so obviously it was only just visible. Fortunately it was a bright clear day and more people began to notice the object. It was too high to be a balloon and the shape suggested that it was of advanced technology. After some twenty minutes, the object suddenly shot upwards and vanished into the upper atmoshere.
