Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
Two stationary shiny spheres approximately 18 inches apart maintaining their proximity when the moved horizontally very quickly

I live a very short distance from Lake St. Clair. During the week of July 4th, my daughter and her family were visiting. I was pushing my two year old grandson in his stroller in my driveway. As I rounded my house, I noticed two shiny spheres, slightly larger than a basketball and approximatley 18 inches apart, near the top of the trees in my neighbor's back yard (40-50 feet high). Very soon after I noticed the stationary objects, the two spheres moved horizontally over my neighbor's house very rapidly, maintaining their distance apart, toward the lake and were quickly out of sight.

At the time I thought I was imagining something and would have discounted the whole event except my grandson pointed to where the spheres were first seen and said, "Balloons!" I told my family what I had seen and have subsequently also told the story to friends. I frequently look at the area where I saw the spheres and cannot get the event out of my mind.
