Very Bright orb seen in Daylight, on A51 accelerating towards Chester, UK

Travelling on A51 towards Chester. Weather was overcast but still broad daylight- my partner (who was driving) noticed a very, very bright ball of white light hovering in the sky at the top of his eyeline. The light was too bright to be a star or a plane(a fact he commented on). The ball hovered stationary in the sky for 50 seconds (approx) and then travelled directly forward (towards Chester) at a phenominal speed being lost from sight in a second. My partner was visibly uneasy afterwards! I had seen reports the day before of sightings on the M11 and I asked him to describe exactly what he saw (I could see nothing as I didn't have my glasses and am blind in one eye, shortsighted in the other: the dashboard is hard for me to see let alone anything at cloud level!) The description he gave exactly matched what was filmed yesterday on the M11 (a report my partner had not seen) and when we returned home I showed him the camera footage- he was visibly taken aback! and explained that what he saw was identical except he saw only one orb as opposed to the four in the footage.

We reported the sighting to the local police 20 minutes ago. I highly doubt it was a chinese lantern due to the speed it was travelling according to my partners account- the fact he shouted "Jesus Christ!" when the orb accelerated was enough of an indicator for me- I only wish I had had my glasses with me.
