Duration:5 seconds
Metallic baseball sized spere seen in Bradford Yorkshire England

This happened around eight years ago, not sure of exact date. I was walking home with friends, but they were all walking slow and joking around so I walked ahead. I was about 100 meters ahead of them when I looked up over my right shoulder. I saw a small sphere that was baseball size moving along about 10 metres above ground height. It came from behind me and passed. There was a wall ahead and i'm not sure if the sphere dipped after it got past the wall or if it had been dipping its trajectory slightly all the time. When I saw it Ihad just been coming to a bend in the road where the wall was ahead. I was going to cross the road to look over the wall, but a car came round the corner and had the driver not horned at me i would not have noticed the car. The sphere looked metallic and was travelling at around 20 mph. My mates saw nothing except for me nearly getting run over. They believed me though especially because there was no other reason why I would have wanted to croos the road at that point. There is a train track running along the direction where it was heading.
