Description: Just wanted to report this sighting. Was in the back garden of the house. Daughter had a helium red balloon from a party, we decided to let it go. There was no wind or cloud. As balloon went up in the sky me and my wife at the time watched it go up, as was I would say 200 ft up we saw a small I would at a guess say 10-12 foot diameter disk shape object move toward the balloon as if was investigating the balloon.
My wife noticed the ufo first and alerted my sight. It was translucent metallic saucer shaped object and looked invisible to the naked eye. Due to the red balloon we both noticed it and it movement. As the balloon went out of sight we could no longer see the ufo as it blended into the blue sky.
I always wondered if the was some sort of new surveillance technology.
Sorry can't be accurate on dates but my statement is true account of the facts.
