Silver disc sighted in the afternoon, Mumbai, India.

I'm a 35 yr. old Indian (resident of India). I live on the outskirts of the city of Mumbai in a newly developed township known as New Mumbai. I have my own business and I also work for Vacuum Tech. India, the Indian representatives of Alcatel, France.

On the said day, I had been praying in my room with my window open, as i usually do, when all of a sudden i saw a silver disc coming into view from the left side. I immediately got up from my mat and ran outside calling for my mom. Both of us ran to the balcony and saw the UFO. (We live in a 3 storied apartment).

The UFO was moving very slowly with a slight wobble, and as we stood on the balcony, we watched it move to our right. By now the wobbling had stopped. There were markings on the body (like something etched), and i'm sure i could have read at least some of it with my naked eyes, had it not been for the glare caused by the strong sunlight.

While we were still watching, it stopped in midair for about 5 mins., and then began to move in a perpendicular direction towards an uncultivated area about 20kms. away from the place where we stay.

Since it was quite close and very slow we had ample time to take note of a few things. For one, there was absolutely no sound. Second, it was not a helicopter. It was not an aircraft of any conventional make that i have ever seen. I didnt notice any windows (perhaps because of the glare). I could only make out a few grooves that ran across the body of the craft. It was certainly not a balloon because it stopped and changed direction. That's all i've got to say. I dont know if anyone else noticed it. Indians are not really crazy about UFOs except in the cities.

N.B. Before this, i have also seen a black triangle in the night traversing the same route. It went really fast so i couldn't see much except that it was black and had very subdued lights at the three corners.
