Description: I was just out for a walk and as I was walking just past Nackington near, Canterbury and toward were I worked I noticed this very big like sun shaped object. I did not ever see anything like this before ok I was 17 years old at the time. I ran towards it yet as I got to a field it went down towards my work place, so I walked on the main road then to the side road leading to my work. I walked up the road yet saw nothing so I went back to the main road and started to walk down the road towards town, thats when I saw the object again high off in the distance. So I just went back home yet in the morning Sunday paper a woman had reported that she was just coming up the hill were she lived in Canterbury and was startled to see a very big sun like object over her house. So I rang around then rang the woman and told her what I saw, the woman saw it about 10.30pm I saw it at about 10pm. It was explained away by some one that it was a weather balloon yet I knew it was not that as it moved too fast. I have seen other unexplained objects since then also at night it looked like a very bright satellite it shone then just disappeared from view that was about 7 weeks ago.

TV/Radio: A woman in Canterbury reported it to the press.
