While having a ciggy, I saw a UFO move quietly over my home.....was about 5m above the tree-tops......

Hi there, On 12 November 2007 at approximately 21:00pm (East London, South African time), while outside having a ciggy, I saw what I could only explain as an U.F.O.

I was facing in a northerly direction, looking out and down my back lawn, when something just said that I should look up, and thatís when I saw it.

What looked like an ovalish object (because I only saw in from underneath) with a single dimish light in the centre shining out at about 25-300.

It was a pretty clear night so I could see the object against the night sky, bearing in mind that it was not very high above me, perhaps 5m above the tree-tops. It looked dark in colour, Iím not quite sure what colour, looked either black or dark grey/silver.

It moved from a northerly direction to a south-westerly direction, therefore it did not do straight over the house, it kind of moved off to the left but overhead. This object made absolutely no sound whatsoever, and this is why I canít explain it as anything other than a UFO.

The speed it was moving at was quite fast as it was as quick as I could turn my head to watch it disappear. I didnít even have a chance to take a picture or call my partner.

I have drawn more or less what I think that it looked like. (Could be thinner or fatter, Iím not sure) I would be eternally grateful if you could post any other sightings in this area, as it is one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had.

Kindest Regards
