bright silver object travelling at speed in a trajectory taking it to earth. It disappeared about 200 feet from the ground.

Junction 8/9 of the M4 in England. A very bright, silver object was seen in the area about 400feet away. It was travelling westwards in a straight line headind to the ground. As I was thinking this thing was going to crash, suddenly there came tiny `bits` falling from the object, then it disappeared in mid-air, mid flight, some 200 feet off the ground.It didnt change direction, move off or anything, just disappeared. I estimate it was about the size of a small car, say the british mini car..

I witnessed this whilst driving. I immediately rang radio berkshire and asked if anyone had also rang in, answer no. I tried ringing Maidenhead police station but got no answer.

I myself was driving a taxi at the time. I previously was a management consultant who was made redundant.
