silver disk craft approx 40ft diam. flys over school kids and teachersouside for school meeting and lands in back of school.

At Deer Creek Elementery, now Deer Creek Middle School, in Central Valley California, now known as the city of Shasta Lake, the school was for 5th and 6th grades only. This was in 64/65.As students, we were outside for a meeting with the principal, re: something for all students to attend, such as a student body meeting. The weather was clear. A silver disk shaped craft flew over the school grounds with no noise. North to South, very low, just above the tall pine trees.We all watched, teachers, secrataries, students...Over 45 of us... as it went over us and appeared to land in back of the school grounds, behind some trees. The area was woods and no houses.We, as students were immediately sent to our classrooms, where we sat silent, due to teachers orders, until 2 pm. I observed a man walk by the class window. He was not a sheriff, as we had been told the sheriff had been called. He was in a black suit, with a black briefcase. I did not see any others. He was walking towards the craft, to the south, and not on the side of the principals office, which was on the east side of the buildings. At 2 pm. The alarm to go home sounded, and we were told we could go. A girl and I headed towards the direction of the craft where it had landed. The tall pine trees had covered its descent, but we did not see it leave. My friend and I met other students coming back from behind the school from the landing site; some had went to find the ship.. We were told it was gone, but we still went to the site, where we found a large approx. 40ft diameter ring. It appeared to be burned at the ring all around the edge..( Later on when older,I would return, and find for years nothing grew there.) My friend and I saw nothing but the ring, so we left. Something scared us, and we began to run, but I do not recall what. I went home and told my mom, who came back to see the ring. She saw it also.That night something scared me again by my home, which was not far from the school. Later on in the 70's there would be many sightings in the county. I would know people who had major sightings, and as far as I know besides a report in the papers occasionly, few people reported the many sightings.
