**Descripton of sighting:**

During a hike with a group of friends at Teide National Park we saw an object moving above Mount Guajara (2715 m). This apparently tiny and completely silent object was somewhat spheric and had metallic-like shine at sunlight, and according to its position above the aforementioned Mount Guajara, maybe it was at an altitude of 3000 m. Its movement was initially descendant, going from an altitude of ~3000 m to 2300 m in less than a minute; after that, it went horizontally for another minute or so, before losing out of sight in the distance.

I attached the only video we recorded (don’t pay attention to the crap we speak…), of barely 29 seconds, in which you can see the object moving horizontally above the solidified lava flows of Las Cañadas plateau. Also I will include the only photograph of the object, taken inmidiately after recording the video, with the same cellular phone (Xiaomi Redmi Note 4).

Using Google Earth, I calculated that the distance traveled by the object during the 29s of the video was about 1,5 km. That distance in that amount of time gives an speed of about 180 km/h, which would be too fast for a bird (the fastest horizontal flight bird on earth reaches about 150km/h) and surprisingly fast for a mainstream drone (which are totally forbidden in this National Park).

Given the data posted above, I completely have no clue of what that object was, as I couldn’t see any appendix attached to it (like wings, propellers, etc), just a tiny and completely sterile sphere.
