Ball shaped ufo seen in england by three witnesses.

I was with my uncle and cousin it was a clear day with only a few small wispy clouds around.

We were looking up at the vapour trails of passing jets when my uncle who was a ufo sceptic noticed somethind strange passing directly overhead. It was a large silver ball shaped object about 20 feet in diameter. As we saw it, it gathered speed and flew through a small cloud appearing to suck most of the vapour from it. as it did so it changed shape and shot off at ridiculously high speed.

All the time there was total silence in the air, even the noise from other planes became inaudible. My uncle now believes in UFO's but only because he has seen one with his own eyes and there is no way it could have been anything else, not from this planet anyway.

My wife tells me that she read a paper monday morning after I had already told her and that a man had seen and photographed a similar UFO on the same day.
