I saw the same type of UFO at two different times in my life, once at age nine and again at age 30.

I saw the same type of UFO twice in my life. The first time I was nine years old. I had the habit of getting up very early in the morning.

One morning I got up around 5 a.m., I believe, looked out our picture window and saw it. It was a large round silver craft flying very low and slow. It had no windows or lights. Needless to say, I went back to bed very quickly!

The second time I was thirty years old and had my young daughter with me. She did not see the craft for some unknown reason. I had just gotten off work and was sitting in my car in the turnoff lane to go to McDonalds.

This day it was nearly 12 noon. On the right side of the highway there is a bank with a ridge of trees. The same type craft, large, round and silver suddenly appeared over those trees. Once again, it had no lights or windows.

It stopped right nearly directly over my car and hovered sort of like a helicopter and then it took off very fast! I thought that I would see it as I headed home. You know how fast a jet moves, even when it is flying very low? This thing had to have been AT LEAST 1000 times faster!

I didn't see it on the way home, nor did I ever hear anyone else say they had seen anything strange in town that day around noon.
