Full Description & Details
At 1710 hrs on a bright clear day an object passed directly overhead, moving from the NW travelling in a straight line to the SE. It was sighted by myself and I pointed it out to my wife at that time. The weather on this day was clear, winds were very mild, the temperature was 22 deg C in the shade. Object was spherical and reflected the sunlight giving it a yellowish white glow. The object did not have a fusilage or wings. No lights were visible. No sound was hear from its path of travel. Its height could not be determined. Its speed was very fast when compared to the speed of commercial flights which pass over the area often, i.e. several in one hour. Most flights pass north of the town and the majority travel east to west. The commercial aircraft can be seen and heard. A airliner flight had passed overhead, E to W and to the north minutes before, left a contrail which did not dissipate but slowly drifted in a continous column to the south. The object passed to the south of the contrail. It was a very unspectacular event but significant.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
