round bright craft seen after sunday evening church services

it was in the evening, about 7:30 or 8:00. i was with my mom, an old couple, and had a friend riding with us. it was on a sunday evening. we had just gotten out of church services when we all noticed a bright round craft flew in from the north and lowered it's altitude. it then hovered for two minutes. it then left and raised altitude. we spent time talking about it, my friend and i. the following wednsday, we told the church chior leader about it. he believed us but suggested it might be a helicopter, but my mom stated the altitude was to high for a helicopter. this the truth as far as i can remeber over the last twenty-one years.

((FOLLOW-UP REPORT FROM SAME WITNESS))

Craft seen in the eveing after Sunday evening church services.

I reported this before. There was some things I wanted to add to my report. My mom, a friend, an elderly couple we were riding with, and myself saw this craft. It came in from the north, lowered it's altitude which had probably been 100,000 ft. to 80,000ft. It hovered for two minutes, then raised back to 100,000 ft., and then flew south and just disappeared. We had just gotten out of Sunday evening church services and had seen this object talking as I stated before. My friend and I talked about it afterward, saying it back to outer space. I was only a kid at the time, eleven years old to be exact, while I believed in life on other planets and in Bigfoot, I did not believe in u.f.o.s until I saw this craft. It was saucer shaped, and was just a bright round object, white in color. We told the church choir director about it the follownig Wednsday, who asked if it was a helicopter, but my mom pointed out it was too high altitude for a helicoptor. I had wanted to tell all this before to this agency but was pressed for time the last time I did this. This is not a cheap gag, nor a tall tale. This is the truth as well as I can remember over the last twenty-one years. The adults were straight laced.
