It was Thanksgiving 1975 or 76. When I came out of our house it was hovering over our neighbors one story house. It was daylight and I could see it very well. I remember thinking its too small for a tall man to stand up in. It had small porthole type windows all around it. And I couldn't look in them first because I was afraid something would be looking back out at me. I looked at the edge of the disk.It had red blue green and white lights that strobbed all around it. It was silver but not shiny. No seams at all and no noise. I finally looked at the windows and the inside of the ship was lite up like a bright light bulb. There was nothing inside. It looked empty. Just a brightness like the sun. I remember thinking. I wish I knew about machanical things because I don't know what I'm looking at. The bottom was smooth. Then all of a sudden I came out of what I thought was a stupid curiosity I took off running to anouther neighbors house. I remember I was the only one outside when this happened. but it was in the newspaper the next day. Alot of people saw it. I think I was the closest though. If anyone else saw it too. Please email me. It has haunted me for all these years. I just wish I could make anyone believe how important it was. No one will know what its like until it happens to them.
