Small black disc or sphere, silent with regular path.
I have presented this sighting at the French UFO Society GREPI, but I want to repeat it to you because of it's a very peculiar case.
It started at the swimming pool where we were having a swim, and we all looked up when the helicopters of the French Gendarmerie could be seen flying in the sky.
We could see them through the glass roof. Then shortly thereafter, when I went to leave the pool, I saw another helicopter in front of the south pool, moving above the water.
Until that time I had thought of a car accident or trouble with a gang etc. There were at least 2 or 3 helicopters.
As I started to walk home, and I could still see and hear the helicopters.
Shortly after I entered my street, I heard a helicopter on my left, and as I looked up, I saw just to its right, a small, round disc or sphere shaped object.
It was moving rather slowly. At times, it was clearly seen in the blueness of the skies, and even as it moved in front of the clouds.
Because of that, I thought the object was not that large, yet it was impossible to tell for certain.
I continued to walk home, it took me about 10 minutes, and all the while I kept watching. Finally, the UFO approached the horizon. I could see it above some distant houses and buildings.
The entire time I watched the UFO, it never changes its course, always moving in a straight line. It did seem at one time that the object had a clear top, but that might have been due to the sun's reflection.
All of this brought questions to my mind; what were the helicopters doing there? Was it just a coincidence, or were they somehow connected to the UFO?
Could the helicopters have been chasing the UFO because it had been picked up on military radar? If only I had the answer, or someone else who saw it would come forward.
