Shape: Sphere
Flying sphere hovering above us, shining light and then disappearing

My friends and I were in the middle of a wildflower field in a nature preserve after hours. Several of my friends were sitting on a rock nearby, but three or four of us were standing in a circle in the grass. It was very dark and we could barely see each other.

All of a sudden there was a flicker of light above us, like a camera flash. I also heard a whirring sound.

We looked up immediately and saw a sphere, a ball, with light emanating from its bottom. Then the light disappeared, it was as though the source of the light closed up. The sphere hovered for a moment or so and then flew threw the air and disappeared just several feet away.

The sphere was rather small and came very near our heads. I couldn't have touched it if I reached up, it was further up than that, but it was rather close.

This happened several years ago, but I remember it clearly and there are several people who can corroborate it.
