Sphere shaped UFO Seen in Altamonte Springs, FL by a young girl 10/12/06

I was sitting on the second floor stairway of my apartment building, smoking a cigarette and waiting for my roommate to come outside to take him to work. It was still light out, and i was looking at the sky as i often do, and saw what appeared to be a sphere-shaped silver metal object flying to the north, at an altitude of what couldnt have been more than 200 ft., maybe a quarter mile if that from where i was sitting. It was traveling fairly slow, at a steady speed, and then I tried to take a picture of it with my camera phone but the lighting and distance made it impossible to get a good shot. It then passed behind a tree branch, and i waited to see it in between the trees, but it just disappeared. Now i know that it is not a plane. It was too close and the shape was clearly not of any human flying machines. I believe it cut a quick 90 degree turn east when it disappeared because i went downstairs to get a better look, and was looking at where it should have been at that point if it was still traveling the same speed and there was nothing. I told my roommate about it when he came down, i expected him to laugh at me and not take me seriously, but this is something that i would never joke about (no matter how much i wish they would come and take me away.) I later told my boyfriend about it and my uncle, who is a retired scientist. Everyone i told took me seriously, and i am constantly looking out for my little friend everyday, hoping to get a picture to prove i wasnt just seeing what i wanted to see. when i first saw it i had to stare for a bit to make sure i wasnt seeing things, but i was staring for at least 30 seconds before i got my camera phone out of my pocket, so im positive of what i saw. I am and always have been a firm believer in life from other planets visiting us, i just hope next time i see it they come a little closer! By the way, i am a 24 year old female, i deliver pizzas for a living, and i have a hobby of taking pictures of cloud formations, so i often spend ! alot of time looking up at the sky, as do i spend alot of time researching the UFO sightings. I am not trying to impress anybody with a made up story-i have nothing to gain for lying. I just hope someone else saw it or knows what that might have been- it looked like a ufo i saw in a picture once. Well its a silver ball-like object. It was flying. thats all i can tell u for sure. Oh yeah and i didnt hear any noise that might have been made by the craft, but it was a good ways away.
