Location: London (UK/England),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 mins
Sunbathing in Crystal Park, London, UK. Enjoying the hot weather, and watching the occasional plane fly overhead. I then noticed a large silver ball floating directly above me higher than most of the aircraft, although I could see clearly that it was a large shiny silver ball. It seemed to shake every now and then, but hovered at the same altitude for about 10 minutes. A large jumbo jet started flying towards it, and the ball started moving up. The plane passed and I watched as the ball continued upwards. The sky was clear and blue except for a few wispy clouds. As the ball passed through one of the clouds the cloud lit up for a split second, as if there was a lightening storm within in, although it was clearly not a storm cloud. The ball became faint as it disapeared until it looked like a small star in the bright blue sky. Then it vanished out of sight.
