Shape: Sphere
Duration: 1.5 min
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Me and a friend saw a shpere shape craft lingering near the power lines and when we got closer it began to withdraw.

The craft was about a meter wide and sphere shaped. It was a dull tiel color that almost seemed translucent. I saw it with my nieghbor and we followed it on foot for mabey 45 seconds to a min. before it disappeared behind some trees. We then decided to look for the craft by car. We must have driven around the area we saw it in for about half an hour, but we never saw it again. I can definalty say that the craft moved in jerking movments side to side and up and down while heading in an eastern direction. It didnt seem to move until we started to pursue it on foot and thats when it started moving away from us. The craft seemed to be lingering close to the power lines in the ally of our nieghborhood. At first we thought it was a balloon but very quickly realized that it was not. The whole experiance was chilling.
