Hi I saw a ufo in the clouds or fog. It was hoovering over the highschool football field. The only reason I could even see it was because of the lights of the football field. I could easily see the shape of a saucer sitting in the clouds over the game i could also see some lights on in the ship they had, i guess windows all over it because i could make out what looked light comming out of the windows you know faint lights because it was in a cloud. I firmly belive i would not have been able to even see it if not for the stadium lights being on and where i happen to be standing. If the stadium light had not been on and i happen to look over there i might have seen the faint lights in the cloud but would have thought nothing of it. just stars. it was truly awesome it was huge way bigger than the football field and high school. I dont know how high up it was it seemed right ontop of the game. I should have called the cops and let them know about it i guess. I just looked at it for about 2minutes went back in the trailer, i can't even remember if i told my mom about it when i went back out a few minutes later it was gone. I wish I would have had a camera that would have taken night pictures, I would have taken a picture.
