Early morning UFO sighting as UFO landed in a cul-de-sac. down the street, directly in sight of my bedroom window.

It was in 1966. I have hesitated to write about it until now. No one would have (nor did) take me seriously in 1966. Perhaps there were other sightings by people who did not think that such things happened in the 1960's. I was 13 years old. I had been sleeping soundly in my bed when I awoke for some reason. My bed was just below the window in my bedroom. For some reason, I got on my knees and stared out the window. At the end of the cul-de-sac, directly in front on my window, there was a UFO hovering above the ground. It was very large, circular in shape, but with many layers to it. Nothing that looked like the shape of an eye. Many straight edges, and lots of colored lights. I was on my knees staring at it for the longest time. I didn't doubt that I was awake as I pinched myself numerous times and in the morning I noticed the welts I myself had inflicted. My sister was in the room with me but she was sound asleep. My parents in the next room but I knew I would catch "heck" if I awakened them.. It was a working day the next day for the both of them. I also KNEW that if I uttered a single sound, whoever was in the UFO would hear, and leave. And I didn't want that just yet. I watched the object to see if anything was going in or out or if there was any movement at all. There wasn't. I was able to see it quite clearly as at the end of the cul-de-sac there was a street lamp. It gave a little illumination, but the colored lights themselves provided quite a bit. I was in awe of this object. It hovered precisely between two houses, on an empty lot that had yet to be developed. I summoned up enough courage to open the window. I hung my head out, listening. Not a single sound. I mean, not a SINGLE sound. I pulled my head back in and latched the window. I continued to watch. After about 10 minutes, the lights started flickering, and something underneath began to rotate. The UFO rose very slowly up into the air. And hovered again. It then started to move, across the tops of trees, he! ading in a westerly direction. It moved with the speed of a helicopter, over the tops of many trees, until just as I thought it would move completely out of sight, it took off on a steep angle and climbed to the stars. There had been no sound at all the entire time. I marvelled at what I had seen and went back to bed. The next day I told my story to anyone who would listen and was met with complete skepticism. I don't tell the tale unless the subject comes up.
