Small UFO sighting at Yankee Stadium in daylight.

I was at the Yankee game yesterday (Yankees vs. Rangers). I was sitting in the second row of section 420c (upper deck) with a friend. I took my eye off the batter to look up at an overhead plane, and on the way, I noticed a small object only about 30 feet away over the field.

The item was charcoal gray, probably metallic, and in the shape of a toaster. It was only about one foot in size. It spun around in circles, but always remained parallel to the ground, and had something similar to a reflector light on a bicycle in the upper right corner, which shined like a dimmed light. It also had a small amount of haze over it.

The item must have came in over the third base side of the stadium, I saw it when it was directly in front of me, and continued its path over the first base side of the stadium, accelerating after leaving the stadium, until out of view.

When I first looked at it, I thought it was a garbage bag, floating in the wind, but then realized it couldn’t because a garbage bag would roll over rather than remain parallel. It couldn’t have been a balloon, because it was not going in the exact same direction in the wind, nor was it rising at a fast pace or going straight up.

I did not bother taking a picture of it, because when I saw it, I thought nothing of it, and when I realized this could be something else, it was too small and too far away to get a good shot with my cell phone camera. However, my friend who I was at the game with saw it, and as many as 1,000 other people sitting in the vicinity could have potentially seen it.
