The event happened on a hill on a clear summers day during daylight hours. My Brother (12 years of age)and I (9 years of age) were in our bedroom,at the front of the house and on the upper floor, when we both noticed an object on the other side a the road, 20 meters away, hovering above a fir tree. The object was approximatley 1.5 meters in diameter and PERFECTLY spherical. It was metallic in colour, roughly the colour of iron, which was constant throughout the sphere. It did'nt seem to have any markings or openings. We both were familliar with weather ballons and other air filled objects, and it definately wasn't an air filled object, it definatley had a SOLID SHELL. It would be best described as a ball bearing 1 meter wide. It remained there for what seemed 10 minutes and didn't move a CENTIMETER. At that point we BOTH ran downstairs and out the front door, this must have taken a MAXIMUM of 6 - 7 SECONDS, when we opened the front door it had dissapeared. We had a clear view of the sky in all directions, approximatley 30 degrees from the horizon and above, but there was nothing to be seen. From that day i have had strange nightmares, and when i get them they cause me to be sick when i wake up, these i havn't had for a few years now. END OF REPORT Many thanks ((name deleted))
