4th of July surprise.

First off, I'm not crazy. I don't hunt UFOs or even believe in ghosts. I have seen questionable lights in the sky, even 6 of them 30ft away from me but I still question those and can't confirm they were alien or UFOs. But this one is different,. It had dimension and reflected the ground. Plus it moved.

It was on the 4th of July 2005. I was at a holiday party, in the back yard of the house next to a swimming pool. Ever since I was a kid, I usually like looking at planes take off and land. So when I was in the back yard and heard an approaching plane, I instinctively looked up. While I was facing north. I heard to the left of me, a plane approaching. So I looked at it and thought, "cool, a C130 military plane is approaching". Which made it even more interesting to look at. Right behind the plane was a small round object. My first thought was that the lane was towing something. As it got closer and closer, I kept looking for a tow line, a chord, a rope, a wire,... something to make sense that it was towing this round object. Then as it was almost right above me, I saw that the object was shiny with a chrome-like reflection. That's when it hit me that this is the orb stuff I've heard of in the past. So I opened the sliding back door and yelled for people to come out! and see this cause I didn't want to be the only one seeing this. They all tool their time to come out cause they thought I was crazy. While they were coning, I tried to pull my Iphone out to take a picture or video, but the stupid phone took a long time to boot up and initiate the camera. While I was waiting, the plane had already past me and moved on to my right. So I'm looking at the back of the plane now. I can still see the orb behind it, but it started to move slowly to the left of the plane. So I naturally freaked out some more. By the time I got the camera working, the plane was too far to see anything and the people who came outside to see couldn't make out anything themselves. That's my story of what happened.
