The witness was out of school for the summer after completing grade one. The witness was six years old. The witnesses mother had shown him how to use a kitchen chair as a back rest by turning it over and placing it on the front lawn of the house. A pillow was used for comfort. The witness on this day was eager to go outside to sit in the sun and was concerned about missing the sun even though it was before lunch. The witness had to drag the heavy chair outside by himself as the parents did not want to go outside. The witness rushed back in to get a pillow as a cushion for his back. He sat on the grass with the chair as a back rest. The witness was facing west with the house behind him. The witness closed his eyes. An undetermined length of time passed. Something caused the witness to open his eyes and immediately turn his head to the left. The witness observed a very strange object hovering over the space between his parents house and the next door neighbours house. The object was less than fifty feet from the witness.

After several minutes all three went outside. The object was not there.
