Location: Benfleet (Thames Estuary) (UK/England),
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
Saucer somewhere above the Thames Estuary.

In the back garden in Benfleet, United Kingdom, I looked in the sky to the East at an angle of about 55 degrees and saw something far off glowing silvery white with a fuzzy haze to its edges making it hard to focus on. It was a classic saucer shape like this () Rotated 90 degrees obviously.

The skies were totally cloudless and blue and a lot of commercial airline traffic passes across this area and it was at least as high maybe higher as I could not determine the size it being so far away.

I went to get my camcorder,which had a flat battery and was useless, but when I returned the object had taken on a slight "S" shape but rotated 90 degrees so like this ~.

I looked away briefly and it was gone.



The date for this although I cannot be specific was about August 2012 in the afternoon around 3pm on a warm sunny day and it was stationary not moving the slightest that I could detect using the house roof as transit line to the object.

I saw a silver object in a similar area of the sky a month later but it was moving and on a saturday and it was more than likely a silver helium balloon from some local event reflecting sunlight unlike the first sighting which definitely wasnt a balloon.
