The sphere looked as if it was going to hit the house!
The neighbourhood was pretty populated and it was raining quite a bit that night. It was approx. 20:00 and I was standing in my aunts living room staring out the window at the rain passing through the light of the street lamps. I love looking at the rain. I then noticed a spherical shape in the sky.It was pretty small and I can only assume it was very high. It looked like a miniature unar eclipse.It was dark in the middle and had a faint light all around the edge. It then started to drop toward me, getting bigger in size as it got closer and closer. The size grew dramatically starting from a tennisball size to about 50 ft in diameter.It looked like it was going to hit the house! At that time I jumped from behind the couch where i was standing and screamed for my parents! I think it was my mom that came to get me and told her what i had seen. She obviously did'nt believe me. I later went back to the window and as quick as the UFO appeared,it had disappeared. I do remember that it was dark grey in colour as it got closer and looked like it was also spinning.
About 5 years later I was watching the news(Netwerk) on TV with my dad and there were reports of UFO sightings in another area of the country. There were also a few photographs on the screen.And the picture was 3 ball shaped objects that looked EXACTLY like the one I had seen! I told my dad that what I had seen ewas true, but he just shrugged his shoulder and left it at that.... I KNOW what I saw was real and not my imagination!
Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
