Description: I saw a large round/oval greeny/white disc shape take off from the ground and fly horizontally about 2 or 3 hundred feet in the air. It was a long way in the distance but seemed to be moving very quickly. It was visible for a few seconds only before disappearing behind a block of high rise flats close to me. It was a strange sight and took me by surprise. I even questioned myself afterwards. Had I seen a UFO? Never have before! I'm 48 years old!
