Location: Beech Hill, Berkshire (UK/England),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Metallic sphere spotted in the sky, object was reflective, didn't move, after a minute it had vanished from sight...

I have recently come to another conclusion to a sighting I had in the year 2000, and decided to submit it to you. It happened one morning on the way to work when I was driving I noticed a reflection from something in the sky that caught my attention. As I observed it closer I noticed it was a metallic sphere of some sort which was absolutely dead still in the sky it didn't move whatsoever. I only saw this object for like 1 min at least, it was difficult keeping on eye on it as I was driving, but I looked back up again to where I had saw it and it had vanished from sight. After I had noticed it had vanished I saw what I believe was a kind of haze or even a heat wave left in the sky. It seemed at first like it had left really quickley and left a mark in the sky, but I had come to the conclusion that it might well of become invisible or even transparent. I know what I saw wasn't a plane or a blimp, all I know was it left very quickly almost like it had sensed it had been seen. As many witnesses do I wish I had a camera at the time, but now I keep a camera handy just in case it happens again...
