Location: Boston, MA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
It was gold and round about the size of a golfball.

We were on top of a 5 story building working on removing a tar and gravel roof. It had to have looked like a landing pad with all the flood lights we used to illuminate the area we were stripping. When I went to my friend ,"hey look at that! Do you see that little golden thing up there?" He said "yes, I see it!" It was about the size of a golf ball,gold in color with a glow or haze and it just hovered motionless about 2 feet above our heads. It made no noise. I tried to grab it and it moved so fast to avoid me you couldn't see it. Then it hovered again seeemingly just watching us. So I tried a couple more times to catch it and it kept moving away then it would stop and hover as if it was a game. Then after about 5 minutes it took off straight up and out of our sight. We agreed not to tell anyone about this. But my friend died in a bad car accident and I can't keep this a secret anymore .
