Sevenoaks, Kent England UK A Spherical Shaped Metallic Or Silver UFO

Date: July 11, 2006
Time: Approx: 11:15 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Sphere.

Full Description of event/sighting: Whilst on my tea break I looked up to see the object. It immediately looked out of place, as I'd never seen anything so distinctly unfamiliar before. It certainly appeared to be completely spherical, with no extra appendages. The day was bright and sunny with a few clouds around. Against the blue sky the object appeared metallic or silver in colour. When passing below a cloud it just showed as dark/black. From this view I was certain it was not transparent. It traveled very slowly indeed, in fact I had to start work again before the object was out of sight. I guess I observed the object for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Then about 3 minutes later I located it in the sky again and watched for about a minute. Over the last few years I have taken to watching the sky, when time allows, and I can safely say I never seen anything like this before (excluding other online UFO reports). I suppose the first thought by many people would be that I had observed a hot air balloon or even an escaped party balloon. All I can say is that I have seen all these before and they bore little resemblance to the object I saw. Both hot air balloons and party balloons generally have ropes, baskets or string hanging from the bottom and are very rarely exactly spherical.

Do weather balloons exist and what do they look like? Could this have been one, do you think? Incidentally, when I pointed it out to my colleague his response was "it could be one of those pole stars". Quite what he meant by that I don't know, but if nothing else it shows that his first reaction was not to suggest something mundane like a balloon. I hope this interests you and I'd be pleased to know your thoughts on my report. If I can give you any further info' you only need to ask.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
