On Sept 16/2006 silent silver sphere passed horizontally overhead slowly, seemed to avoid viewing by rapidly ascending into cloud cover

To the best of my recollections, as I cannot find my copy of the original report this occurred about 2 pm in Bramalea, Ontario on Friday September 15 2007 and I was sitting outside in my friend’s backyard. That it is near Pearson Int. Airport is surprising to me. The sighting lasted a good 5-6 minutes. When I first saw the object, it was hard to grasp what I was seeing. My second thought was maybe it was some kind of perfectly round and silver coloured balloon, but it could not have been; both by its configuration and its motion. There were 2 lines running horizontally in the mid section as if of windows but of the same silver metallic material. Its look and behaviour suggested intelligence and purpose. It moved silently. When it first caught my eye it was travelling horizontally slowly at approximately 500 to 1000 feet. It was hard to judge height accurately as it was a bright clear sky and there were only thin wispy patches of clouds at around 10,000 feet. As the object passed out of sight over the roof line I moved to continue viewing this phenomenon. As I moved, the object started a rapid right turn; as if to block my view with other roofs, so I moved further. Each time I moved it seemed to attempt avoiding my gaze. Finally I had a full view of the sky at that height. It then suddenly went straight up and within 4-5 seconds had hit the cloud layer and disappeared from view. As for size I can only guess that it was about the size of a dump truck. Weeks later I noted that a near earth encounter of an asteroid occurred on Sept. 16, and I wonder if this had anything to do with this vehicle being there at that time; perhaps to view the close fly-by. I don’t know. It has remained a profound event to me and I am sure it was either not from our time or not from our planet. Respectfully, Mike M.
