Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes +
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I saw a silver sphere shaped craft that was following in the contrail of a passenger or military aircraft.

I was walking through my living room this morning, when I glanced out my east facing windows that are about 20 ft up & I noticed a plane making contrails right next to another set of contrails....anyway I reached for my binoculars which were on top of the bookshelf near the window....I watched the plane fly out of view and then just focused on the contrail.....Then I got a real surprise!!!!! A small silver ball was flying through the contrail not too far behind the plane !!!! A UFO !!!! It stayed in the contrail for about 7 seconds then moved to a patch of blue sky between the contrails and hovered for about 3-4 minutes then went straight up at incredible speed! This is no BS!!! I saw the UFO in the contrails !!! It was too cool !!! I grabbed my camera to no avail, I had no film....!!! The UFO was not visible without the aid of Binoculars and it appeared to be much smaller than the plane it was following.
