approximately at 16:19 I was observing the sky (it was beautiful) and there were a few passenger planes passing, going in and out clouds. Then I noticed from far away an object coming towards me from the north (i think); it was far away so i thought to myself "hm that plane looks like a UFO, but the closer it was coming the more obvious it became to me that it was UFO! It never hit the clouds, so i can say its size was smaller then the passenger airplanes (more than twice), it was flying approximately twice the speed of the planes (constant speed), but i didn't have any means to capture the image. It appeared to me as a silver shining ball, very vivid. This is first time in my life I've seen a ufo during the day time and that vivid. I've seen them at night many years ago, but this was something.
