Location: Harlow, Essex (UK/England),
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 30seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Craft vanishes after crossing the path of an aeroplane.

Whilst viewing a normal plane up high in the sky this object came into view, which at first appeard to be a plane but had no vapour streem, it crossed the path of the plane i was first observing then as a small cloud (which obscured my vision for about 5 seconds) had passed by, then the object vanished unexplainably.

I have never reported a sighting before and this makes me feel a bit silly but i know what i saw - if it was a plane then it was no ordinary plane, it behaved like no other! the closest likeness i can relate it to is observing a satalite in the clear night sky and just as it passes over this thing dissapears, plus it was a clear sunny day with a blue sky and only a few clouds and this object was a bit larger than a satalite as i did not have to strain my eyes to see it.
