|Silver ball hovering over street/ shot up
I was taking my trash out to the curb this morning. I rolled the can to the curb and started to turn around, when something caught my eye at the top of our street about 50-75 feet away.
The object was a small silver ball about the size of a mini basket ball. It appeared to be hovering about 1 to 2 feet off the ground from the angle I was looking at it.
The first thing that came to mind was that I was seeing stuff. As I had just woke up for work about 45 min ago. I just sat there looking at it for about 30-40 seconds or so trying to refocus on it thinking that my eyes were playing tricks on me.
Soon I thought what the hell is that, and started walking up the street. As I was walking up the street I thought that it could be a small Mylar balloon. But then I thought that a balloon would be moving and this thing was sitting still.
As I got about 30 or so feet from it. It shot strait up so fast that it looked like it was fired out of a gun. It went out of sight with in 1-2 seconds.
It never made any noise, and had no lights; it was just a metallic ball. It really kind a freaked me out.
This is the first time that I have ever seen something that I could not explain. I am still kind of confused.
I am dead set that my eyes were not playing tricks on me.
I was telling one of my employees about this morning and he said that I should report it. I had no idea who I should report it to.
So after a Google search I found this site.
However this thing was not a flying saucer, so I am not sure that it should be here or not.
