I am an early waker but I thought it was weird when I woke up at 3:30 and was fully awake and couldn't go back to sleep. I layed in bed for a while and absolutely couldn't sleep, then I put on some light music and went to lay down on my bed next to my window. I could tell that it was starting to get kind of light outside and I thought it would be cool to watch the sunrise since I was awake anyway. That's when I noticed in the distance just a gold shining ball. It looked like a huge gold star but I knew it was too big to be a star. So i thought it was a planet but it was moving toward me and it was getting bigger. As it got closer I could see the lights flashing on it and there were like these red and blue lights with gold lights on the bottom, the red and blue lights were on the sides. So i thought it was like some really weird fancy airplane, but it was a circle, and it just flew right by. I am really scared right now...I sat there and told myself it was a plane and to forget about it but I cant. It's just weird because the other day I was talking with my friends about UFO's and I was saying how i don't believe in them at all and that they're weird.
