Possible UFO sighting with cigar shaped lights and large football shaped body with 2 witnesses and a picture.

My wife and I were sitting in our T.V lounge when she glanced out our sliding glass door and saw what appeared at first to be an owl sitting on our boundary wall. The distance from our sliding glass door to the boundary wall is about 20 meters.

She never opened the door but decided to switch off our lounge light and call me to look at this strange object which appeared on the wall. She called me over to also look and from where we were standing we saw two very bright cigar shaped lights facing us and a smaller body below that which was the size of a large football. We could not see clearly through darkness of the night mist but quickly took a picture using my wife's cellphone camera.

We got a little tense about this issue and just quickly left the lounge and went to our upstairs main bedroom, looking at the picture rather than the actual object. It soon vanished because as curious yet nervous as I was, I had to peer over our balcony to try and see if I could spot this weird thing again, but it was gone.

From looking at the picture all I can say is that we don't know what it is but it certainly looked uncommon. Its lights which actually seem like eyes to me kept looking in our direction till we got the guts to run upstairs out of its 'site'.

We have the picture,don't know what to make of it,j ust thought we would posted this experience and take it from there.
