Small flying blue orb of light about the size of a basketball

Me and a friend of mine were staying at a neighbors while they were out of town. After hangin out and watching t.v. for a while we went to the kitchen to find somethin to eat. While my friend was searching around in the fridge I glanced over at the t.v. which was right next to two big sliding glass doors overlooking a lake. As soon as I looked over I saw a blue orb comming down from the sky towards the house in a kind of "J" type descent about 200 yards away. It was traveling at an exceptional fast speed because as soon as I saw it comming down from the sky it was already about 6 feet away from me. It flew through the sliding glass doors as if they werent even there. I was just amazed...I stood there for about 10 seconds as it just hovered about 4 feet off the ground. It was about the size of a basketball and it was bright bright blue around the outside while the inside got progressivly lighter... a very pale blue...almost white.It was pretty much a basketball sized glowing sphere of light. I didnt feel scared, I had a sense of calmness once I snapped out of being completly in awe I slowly walked closer to it until I was about 2 feet away from it. I slowly reached out my hand to touch it for some reason..maybe because I felt that I had to know it was really there. I got about 3 inches from touching it and all of a sudden it went crazy! It started flying around the room in all sorts of directions up, down, left, right.. at a very high speed. Then before I knew it, it flew back out the sliding glass doors and up into the sky. As soon as it left I turned to my friend and said "DID YOU SEE THAT!?" since he was to busy looking around in the fridge he missed pretty much the whole event except for seeing something light blue fly out of the corner of his eye. Before that I was the type of person that didnt belive until I actually see for myself. Ive looked on the internet for years trying to find out what exactly it was...a spirt/ alien probe/scout... I have no idea...Ive only been a! ble to f ind a couple of articles that other people have reported on "The Yukon Report". For whatever reason I have this feeling that one day I know I'll see it again.
