Weather Conditions: Large expanse of bright blue sky; no clouds
Description: Driving south along Main South Road, I suddenly noticed a bright/shiny silver elliptical object off in the distance ahead that appeared to be hovering in the middle of a large expanse of bright blue sky.
I was driving fast (100km zone) so could only look at it for about 3-4 seconds on the straight road before having to glance down quickly at the road.
When I looked up again about 2 seconds later, the object had vanished.
Had it been a plane that was coming toward me and hence appeared to be motionless , it could not have vanished from the sky within 2 seconds.
The object looked distinctly different to anything I have ever seen in the sky before.
I heard no sound however it was quite far away.
The more I think about the way to describe what I saw, the more I realise that elliptical is not the right word to describe it as the width was wider in the middle than the ends.
It would more accurately be described as dome shaped, although the dome was shallow (if that makes sense).
