THE OBSERVANT SPHERE

I AM A 27 YEAR OLD DRAFTSMAN; I COME FROM A MILITARY BACKGROUND AND ONLY HEARD STORIES OF U.F.O'S. I WAS AT THE POOL AREA IN MY APARTMENT COMPLEX WITH MY FRIEND TAKING IN SOME SUN RAYS WATCHING PLANES FLY OVERHEAD FROM DETROIT METRO. AT AROUND 3:15 PM I NOTICED A FAINT REFLECTION OF THE SUN ABOUT 3,000-5,000 FEET ABOVE ME AND TO THE EAST HEADING WEST. I TOLD MY FRIEND AND POINTED SEVERAL TIMES AT THE OBJECT UNTIL HE FINALLY SAW IT. IT MOVED REALLY SLOW AND WHEN I WAVED AT IT WHEN IT WAS RIGHT ABOVE US IT STAYED FIXED ABOVE US FOR ABOUT TEN MINUTES, LIKE IT WAS OBSERVING US. IT APPEARED TO BE A SPHERE SHAPED METALLIC OBJECT, I THOUGHT IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BIRTHDAY BALLOON BUT WHEN IT STAYED OVER US FOR TEN MINUTES I KNEW IT MUST HAVE BEEN SOMETHING ELSE. AFTER TEN MINUTES IT STARTED TO SLOWLY MOVE SOUTH WEST THEN IT CHANGED VELOCITY AND MOVED SOUTH. I THEN LOST SITE OF IT AND WENT BACK TO SUN BATHING.
