Duration:8 seconds
Circular, silver, metallic, shiny object, no bigger than a football, moving at a steady speed,

I was in the backseat of the car, driving down a country road in Kirkham. I was looking up at the sky when I noticed a circular, silver, metallic, shiny object, no bigger than a football (soccer), moving in a steady motion, almost as if it was on a track. It was no higher than a lamppost, so I had a very good view of it. It looked as if it was lighting up, but it was daytime, and the sun was out, so it could have been the sunrays. It gradually picked up speed and then just disappeared into thin air. It appeared to be too small for any human to be inside it, and you would think it would be a toy of some kind, but it looked too detailed, and of course when it disappeared, it certainly wasn’t anything human like.
