Description: Was outside having a cigarette looking at the sky and noticed a very bright round ball of light from the Halstead direction moving towards Witham, it looked almost like a miniature sun and had the similar yellow colour and was at an extremely high altitude, I would guess higher than commercial airlines we often see pass by, the light ball moved across the sky faster than what a commercial jet would as well. At this point I called my partner outside and we watched the ball for a further 4-5 seconds and then it disappeared and what re-appeared in the same place was a black shape that freaked us both out. The shape appeared to be a square and then a diamond and then a rectangle shape, at this point we could see it was actually a rotating diamond shape, the size was about 6 times bigger than the ball of light and continued to move towards the Witham area at the same speed as the ball, we continued watching this black shape for a further 12-15 seconds before it was no longer visible to our line of sight. No flashing aviation warning lights was seen nor any noise was heard.
