Duration:4 minutes
Out of the ordinary, resulting in a change of belief.

At first I thought it was a plane- as of the light. I watched it fly past (as I have done since I moved here- we have a good view). After watching the plane for rouughly 15 seconds i realised it wasn't moving. As I studied it for a few more seconds I realised it was in fact moving- but vertically. I thought at first it may have been a hot air balloon but common sense made me realised that no sane person would have been flying one at this time of night. The object was a perfectly cylindrical "plume" of light- yellow in colour- with a small "bulb" at the top of it. At this point I called the girlfriend over to confirm I wasn't just mental, but she saw it too. The object rose a further minute till it was at a height higher than that of which planes pass the window. My girlfriend turned away for a bried moment when the object all of a sudden "vanished." Had I not been concentrating so much on it then I would have lost it but I was fixed on it. The object had tur! ned into a perfectly circular ball of "blackness." The onject veered slightly to the left and toward us quite quickly. All of a sudden it started to accelerate horitzontally toward us. In a period of about 20 seconds, it had passed over our heads and out of our sights. As I rushed down and out of our first story flat to inspect where it should be, it had vanished completely.
