Location: Peoria, IL
Shape: Disk
Duration:one minute
flying disk over northern Peoria, Illinois

I was about five and remember it was around the time of the Apollo 11 moom landing. At some point in the afternoon a group of friends and myself, all aged between four and six, chased a metallic disk flying low overhead in the sky. I lived on Pinehill Lane in Peoria and the disk seemed to fly in the same vector as the street, roughly north to south. I remember someone else confirming that there had been a saucer seen over the "Hawley Hills" subdivision of Peoria at the same time, although the "confirmation" I received took place some six years later when my family returned to the area. I have never reported this before but have never forgotten it.
