I was with a couple of friends. We were in my Dads inflatable dinghy near Antons Gowt, Boston, on the river Witham. I had been having trouble with the outboard motor all day so decided to moor the dinghy up so I could sort the problem out once and for all. We moored up at 17:02 according to my mobile. Less than ten minutes later I sorted the outboard out and pulled the anchor out of the water.
Just as I was doing this I noticed a clump of what I thought were balloons come out from behind some trees at the side of the river just over a mile from where we were. I soon noticed however that these spheres I was seeing were too big to be balloons and were travelling quite quickly across the sky even though there was barely any wind.
The spheres were perfectly sperical but bobbed up and down a little as they crossed over the river which made it hard for me to distinguish whether there were four or five of them. They also appeared to be metallic and reflected lots of light. It took them perhaps 10 seconds to cover a quarter of a mile. I lost sight of them once they dissappeared behind the river bank.
