I saw a silver metallic ball fly over my house in Wash., D.C. in broad daylight!

On the morning of July 28, 2010 at 10:00am I was sitting in my back yard contemplating a conversation my son and I had then night before. It was a crystal clear, beautiful morning with very few clouds. I looked up and saw approaching from the west in an easterly direction, a silver metallic ball slowly approaching. It was as low in the sky as any commercial airplane is allowed in and over Washington D.C.

Amazed, my first thought was to call my family, however, they were still asleep and I feared it would be gone by the time I got back. I considered grabbing my camera but decided against it for the same reason. As I sat gazing at this clearly visible metallic ball, I realized I had my cell phone on me. Unfortunately, my cell phone camera only works when I don’t want it to and as I attempted to photograph the object, I couldn’t get it to work, to my frustration. It was probably due to nervousness. The object was visible for at least 30 seconds and then when it was directly above my head, it disappeared. It didn’t zoom off or fly away, it disappeared! The only reason I know it was 10:00 exactly is because after it disappeared my phone clock said 10:01am. This is real! It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, perfectly round, reflecting the sun on the side that was nearest the sunlight. I know what I saw. It was real. If I’m lying I pray my children drop dead now. Something is going on in the nation’s capitol!
