Location: Beirut (Lebanon),
Shape: Oval
Duration:10 minutes
one black oval object flying high above the sea in Beirut, moving, pausing, and changing directions.

The object was a single, black, oval to circular body. I didn’t make out any smoke or cloud trails from it, the background was the clear blue sky and the object was clearly visible. It was above the sea much higher than the incidentally passing airplanes and at a much higher altitude than the building around me. It moved to the left very slowly still above the sea and then stopped there for about 5 minutes.

I called both my parents to ask them what they thought it was and none were able to answer.

Then the object changed directions and moved to the right at a faster pace but still slow. As it moved to the right (now over land) I lost sight of it because of the buildings facing me, so I moved to the other end of the balcony where it should be visible again and indeed there it was. Now it was at a farther distance and it appeared as a black dot slowly moving to the right.

My parents and I followed it all the way until it disappeared behind the buildings and we couldn’t see it anymore.
