Duration:10 min.
Saucer shaped object spotted day after another sighting of a different unidentified flying object.

Was at work at a LPG Refinery and was walking across the plant when I noticed a disc Saucer shaped object hovering off in the distance to the west northwest approximately 3/4 to a mile away. Disc was only about 3000 ft in the air or less. Disc glowed or reflected miday sun but with a noticably dark shadow at the bottom of the object. I move torwards an area that I could get a good look at this object and try and make out more detail of it. I noticed that after a few minutes that the object started moving torwards in a north west direction directly away from my veiwing postition. It never changed direction although it did change reflectivety but shadow of the underneath didn't. Something that is a bit strange about this shighting is that I also was witness to another sighting the day before of a completely different object but with four other wittnesses. Made report of object also. As object move in northwest direction it eventually vanished. Had a strange feeling that it was observing the refinery.
