FIRST IT WAS 7 AM IN THE MORNING 07:00 . I TRIED TO PUT BOTH IN AND A WINDOW KEPT COMING UP TELLING ME TO DO IT AGAIN . ANYWAY , 7 AM AT LEUZINGER HIGH SCHOOL . MY PE CLASS DID NOT DRESS . WE WERE SITTING IN THE BLECHERS AT THE FOOTBALL FIELD WAITING TO BE DISMISSED . LOOKING WEST TOWARD THE OCEAN I SPOTTED 3 ORANGE COLORED DISKS . THEY WERE VERY DISTANT AND IN A MORNING HAZE , OR AS WE CALL IT THE MARINE LAYER . OF THE CLASS OF 25 OR SO ONLY ONE OTHER PERSON PICKED THEM OUT . I KEPT TELLING THE REST OF THE CLASS TO LOOK DEEP , THEY WERE REALLY OUT THERE JUST PINHEADS TO THJE NAKED EYE . THEY HOVERED IN A RECTANGLE SHAPE . AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES THEY SHOT UP AND OUT OF SIGHT IN THE MORNING FOG . THEY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HELECOPTERS , FOR THERE WERE NO PROPS AND WERE WAY TO FAST WHEN THEY TOOK OFF . HAVE BEEN INTERESTED EVER SINCE IN U.F.O.s
