|An large orange disk hovered quietly over a park a few blocks away to the northwest.
I was about 12 yrs. old. My friends and I were playing on Ashland Ave. in Evanston, when we all noticed an orange disk hovering to the northwest. At arms length it would have been about the size of a football, and it seemed to be only a few blocks away, perhaps over a large park from the look of it. It simply hovered there for a long time. Eventually, all of the children became afraid and everyone ran to there homes. I'm fuzzy on dates, but I remember it was late afternoon/early evening.
