Two "mercury" drops the sky above Kiev, Ukraine, in daylight. 11 years ago.

Situation occurred 11 years ago.

Around noon, at the end of the summer I was chatting with my friend using icq messenger. I do not remember exactly why, but i stood up and went to the window of my room and looked outside.

My apartment was at fourth floor of an apartment block with another house directly opposite to it. Portion of the blue sky is clearly visible there with no trees or power lines obstructing the view.

I saw a glint in the sky in my peripheral vision, and looked up. Almost directly above me there were two shapes “orbiting” one another with significant distance. I focused my attention on one of them that was easier to see. It had a shape of a water droplet sitting on a glass. Round if you look from the bellow, and oval squished on the bottom if you look from a side.

It’s material resembled mercury. Perfect mirror without any dirt or scratches. There was something that looked like ripples going through it’s “surface” As if it’s not a solid object. Ripples did not correspond with any outside interference that i could see.

Object had subtle purple haze or glow on its sides that was not constant. I remember that at one moment I could see it, at another - not.

Approximately half a minute into observation, a dark spot approximately one eighth the surface of the object appeared on its side and started spinning around the edge without any pattern with different speed and direction. It had blurred edges and was absolutely black without any lights or reflections. At the time I thought that it “sucked in” the light. It appeared for 5-10 seconds, then disappeared and appeared again.

I switched my attention to the other object, it looked exactly the same, but was harder to see as it was almost directly above my apartment block. I had to move myself halfway outside of the window and look up to see it, which was dangerous for me.

Both objects were below the cloud layer, as remember seeing small white cloud above the object that was easier to observe. I could not figure out the exact distance to the object or object size because there were no clear frame of reference. I can only guess that distance may have been from 500m to 1km. Both objects did not look massive. If I take a guess - around 20 meters in diameter.

They moved in formation, “orbiting” one each other, slowly moving, progressing to the south-west.

After approximately two minutes of observation, first object started disappearing as if it was losing opacity becoming completely transparent in about 10-15 seconds. Second object did the same shortly afterwards.

I looked at the sky for some time afterwards, however there was nothing more to notice.

As a disclaimer: I have no record of hallucinations, drug/alcohol abuse or diagnosed mental illness. And I’m not claiming this event as “alien” encounter. However I can not explain this event with any natural event or technology known to me.

Here you can find my sketch of the object:

This is the location of the event:,30.5382682,3a,45.3y,234.04h,134.52t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sQOMEGLfV2kKLiw5fcFdWiQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

At the time, I told about it to my friends, however nobody took it seriously.

This is my first and only public report on this event.
