I was only 8yrs old but I remember it clearly. While at my grandmother's house, my mother sent me to our car to get a sweater for her. It was in the trunk. While opening the lid, I got the feeling that I was being watched. I looked all around, but saw nothing alarming. I got the sweater then looked up for some reason, and I saw a round object at about 1500 feet (maybe a 100ft higher or lower). I watched it for about 2min...It just hovered there, right over my head, not moving. then it shot up at an extreemly high speed and in less than a second was almost out of sight. It was round-It had a cone like shaped bottom, with what looked like about six rings around the cone. I remember some movement at the outer edge of the air-frame. when I got back to my mother with the sweater, I told her what I had seen, aand i got spanked for taking an hour to get her sweater...I would have to bet my life I was only gone 5min....I have no recolection of those other 55min. My friend at that time was the other witness to the event, and he had no time loss at all.
