Ball of white light near contrail. Moving from left to right, hovering in sky. Zoomed in and out of view.

On November 13, 2006 around 10 am, I went outside in my backyard and sat down eating breakfast.

It was a beautiful sunny warm say, and the sky was blue with little or no clouds in my view.

There was this trail of contrail that I was looking at, and it was a bit wierd because most contrails that I have seen span horizontally, but this one was vertical, it almost looked like an aircraft shot straight up, but I dismissed this thinking that im looking at this at a bad angle.

About a minute later something remarkable happened. I noticed a BRIGHT white sphere shaped object near this contrail. In my mind i assumed it was this object that created the contrail and thought it was just another aircraft.

But just by looking at it, I knew something was wrong. This object was just hovering there, I got up and went closer and this just reafirmed what I was seeing, it couldnt have been an aircraft, it was just hovering there completely motionless.

This ball was too bright to be an aircraft, it wasnt blinking and did not have any lights blinking on it either.

As I was looking at this object, the brightness of this object and how it just stayed there baffled me.

Then it started moving towards my direction, it got even MORE brighter, I was shocked it was going back and forward.

Then it "zoomed" out of view, it got less brighter. Then it "zoomed" back in closer towards earth and it got even more brighter.

Then it zoomed out again, and this time the ball of white light was getting less brighter, it then turned into a white dot in the sky, then completely disappeared from the sky.
