Duration:20 seconds
basket ball shape and size crome ball flying in the fl keys making a varaity of 90 degree angle turns

I was on vacation in the Fl keys. It was the night before the 4th of july I was laying in a beach chair on a small part of the beach looking at the sky. I noticed something moving it was in the shape and size of a basketball and looked as if it were crome plated or some sort of silver color. The way it was moving there was no way it was any sort of plane, balloon, hellicoptor, ect. The object would move forward then move 5-15 feet to either side (not a zig zag pattern) but more like it was making a varaity of L shaped turns at 90 degrees and kept going until I couldnt see it any longer. It was traveling in a West North,West direction at about 10 mph. I wish i would have chased it.
