Shape of objects: Silver Barbell.

Full Description of event/sighting: My friend and I were sitting up on a rooftop in Palo Alto. It was approximately 1 hour before sunset, but obviously still very light out and clear. All of a sudden I looked out and saw an object rapidly approaching us. The only way I can describe it is that is was in the shape of a barbell, but instead of discs on either side of a rod, they were perfect silver balls, approximately 8 " in diameter. The entire object measured about 4 feet long and was completely silver, not antennas or anything else. The object approached us rapidly, then came to a dead stop in midair only about 10 feet away from us. It then turned in the air to the left with absolute control and precision and then speed off.

Both my friend and I got a very close, clear look at this object. I absolutely have zero doubt about what I saw. I am an extremely honest person and would never lie about this, please believe me! For years after I saw this unexplained object I was troubled by its shape. Why a Barbell instead of a flying saucer or disc? Then I saw a picture of a crop circle about 2 years ago, that was in the shape of a barbell. I now have even more faith that this object is alien to this world. Again, I have never seen any object come to dead stop in midair without even the slightest of hovering movements up and down, and then turn directions! There is absolutely no possible way that this object was thrown. I guess it is possible that it could be a remote control device, but with no antenna is this even possible. I would appreciate any feedback and would be willing to talk about this to someone. Please let me know, thanks.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
