Location: Blackburn, Lancashire (UK/England),
Shape: Circle
Duration: 10-20 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
A small black circle rises and then stops dead in front of cloud,there one moment gone the next.

At first I noticed it rising slowly and then it stopped dead. I spotted a small black spot against a large cumulus cloud. I looked at it through binoculars for a few seconds,it was completely stationary-to me about 2-3mm in diameter, lots of normal a/craft in the vacinity. (I should mention I live on an air route to m/chester airport)I then quickly grabbed my camcorder, at the vital moment it failed to work (though later it did) It'd took me 20-30 seconds to do this,and in this time the object had vanished. I should mention that I'm very familiar with the appearence of earthly aircraft. It was a very nice bright day with some large clouds. Also I should mention that UFOs have been seen in this area on and off for years.
