|Yellow ball of light
I was having an all night LAN computer game session with a friend ((deleted)). It was about 3.30 to 4 o'clock in the morning and still pitch black outside. ((deleted)) I glanced up at the sky and stars above me. After about 10 seconds I noticed a bright yellow ball of light in the distance, very far away. I thought it was just a plane and it wasn't till it appeared to be coming in the direction of the house that I started paying attention. I told my friend to turn around and look and after about another ten seconds it went from the size of a coin or golfball to a tennisball at arms length. This was when I realised it wasn't a plane. We continued to observe it while it passed over our heads (completely soundlessly) and we even went to my front yard and watched it until our view became obstructed by buildings. It traversed the distance of being a speck in the distance to clearing my house in approximately 3 minutes. The funny thing is, in the newspaper the next day it stated that at least 30 other people had reported the same yellow light and more! I'll never forget it, it was very eerie.
