This was when i was @6y/o, I lived at the end of a mile long dead end road in rual washington co.Oregon.Surronded by wheat fields and woods.

It was a clear summer night and you could see a bazilion stars.My friends and I were playing hide and go seek with my brother and sisters as well as his brothers,the parents where in the house.My friend and i were across the street from my house in a field when some thing caught my eye, high in the sky from the right,among the stars.It looked like a shooting star at first,you know with the tail following behind.But with in a second or two (that seems slow )a Bright Orange Oblong shape thing was @ 100 feet in fron of us and ten feet off the ground not making any sound.there were no blinking lights or windows it was just a bright orange oblong shape thing (50'wide and 10'in hight).As my eyes focused on it,the next thing i saw was the tail which caught up with the object to my left among the stars and disapeared.Were talking about covering the horizon from right to left in seconds.My friend and i were so scared.
