A sighting of a matt black spherical UFO in the skies of Leeds ,UK after a plane journey to Paris,France .

I had returned home (see address below)from a flight to Paris with my family on 17/07/97. When I arrived home ; I peered out of my sitting room window that faces east and saw a matt black spherical object moving from west to east over the roofs of the houses in the southern part of the sky . It was still day/evening time ie sky was blue . The object moved slowly ; although my father didn't see it ...who was standing next to me . Eventually it changed direction and moved away from me ...towards the moon . It travelled towards the moon in a position that seemed as if it were under the moon . I had experienced paralysing fear when at Needler Halls ; Hull University Halls of residence about a year after .
