Silvery orb hiding behind cloud!

Well, I have always struggled with the whole U.F.O. phenomenum, real or not? After this sighting which was my first and last good sighting of an U.F.O. i tend to beleive in them a lot more. But still feel that this could have been man-made, but a U.F.O. none-the-less.

Nice bright blue sky, with about 10 to 15% of it dotted with puffy white clouds that you can not see through.

I had just pulled up to a stop light, facing south and was just looking at the sky, when I saw a Fairly bright silver, apparently reflective type orb emerge from one of the clouds moving east at a very slow rate and then it appeared to stop. As I looked at it I knew i had never seen anything like it before and had this really odd feeling of being watched. I looked around and remember seeing only a couple of cars to my right and the people had not noticed it, and I felt the urge to call out to get them to look up at what i saw, but as I looked back up, the orb was moving back to the right, (west), and went back behind the same cloud it came out from behind to begin with.

It did not reappear on the other side, and when the light turned green I crossed the intersection and pulled over on the side for a few minutes keeping an eye on the cloud I saw the orb emerge from, but did not see it again.

Well I live in a military town and on top of that there is a small airport to the south of my town so I have seen many different types of Aircraft over 30 years of my life in all different weather conditions and of course there are times when you see things that are a little different but always upon closer examination you knew what they were, jets or copters or flares, and commercial aircraft of course. From the size of this object and comparing it to all the other flying aircraft I have seen in the skys I would say the object was 10 to 15 ft in diamater, of course its hard to be sure of that aspect.

But this defied anything common to say the least, the clouds were moving just perceivably to the west, so the object actually stopped or slowed down emensely and retreated back to where it came from even though the cloud was moving away from it. But that was the closest cloud in range to the object. Also the object made no sound that i could hear with my windows rolled down. Which was also very unusual.

I told my wife and little girl when i got home and they were slightly amazed because they know i do not get excited over anything, and also told a couple of friends about it, and then about a year or two later, we saw an episode of sightings on the fox network that had a video of an almost identical sighting as mine, but in a different state and different time. And I said there it is that is exactly what I saw! And the object on the video behaved in exactly the same manner.
