Bensheim (Germany), .

Shape: Oval | Duration: 10-15 seconds

I saw a white spot with a white cloudy haze around it in the sky about the size of an eraser head that dissappeared after about 15 sec.My mother-in-law, my wife, my two kids and I were driving home when we came to a stop at a traffic light in the middle of town. It was a clear blue sky outside and I was sitting in the backseat between my kids looking out the windows. I was looking around when I saw a white spot in the sky out the left window. At first I thought it was a plane, but then I noticed it wasn't moving. Further in the distance to the right of the object I saw an airplane flying leaving a white trail behind it. This kind of helped me notice it was not moving. Then I thought I might be a star, but it looked to big for that. Plus the plane and this were the only two things in the sky that I could see. No other stars. Looking at it I noticed there was a sort of white, cloudy smoke around it. Almost not noticable. The object looked like someone took a pencil, dipped the eraser in some paint, and tapped it on the sky. The color of the object looked like the same color white a very thin cloud might have. I was looking at it, and wife asked me what I was looking at. I said I didn't know, and she made a joke that maybe it was a ufo. I pointed at it to show her and told I didn't think it was a plane because it wasn't moving. She looked but said she couldn't see it. I looked at her, told her look where my finger was pointing, and looked back out the window where I was pointing. It was gone. I looked all around where I had seen it, but I couldn't see anything. It was like it was never there. I looked away for only 1 or 2 seconds to make sure my wife was looking in the right direction. The car hadn't started moving yet, and the airplane was still in site. It happened very quick. But it was bigger than the airplane for sure. There were lots of people around on foot, in cars, and shopping, so someone else might of seen it, but I don't know.
