Smooth mirrored surface sphere approximately 10ft diameter hovered approx 7ft above lake surface. observed for approx 30 sec, looked away for approx 5 sec to get a friend’s attention, looked back and couldn’t locate the orb again. i was very surprised to see it. i was not scared or nervous. i reaaly wanted my friends to see it, but was gone when i looked back to ooint it out. object had a perfectly smooth mirror finish that reflected the environment. it was late in the day when sun low enough to cast a long reflection on the lake. i noticed the orb because the sun’s long reflection curved when it reflected off the orb. then i was able to see the full size of the orb. i was the only person to see it in my group of people since it was gone when i looked back. the object remained still during the entire sighting. it was viewed from an elevated deck about 10-15ft above the object and 75-100ft away from it. the location of the sighting was viewed looking east at a narrow part of phillips lake, in hancock county, near dedham, maine.
