FLYING MOON OVER GERING NEBRASKA

I had just crashed on my bike and had to set down next to a tree, when I looked up on a beautiful summer nite and saw [AS GOD IS MY WITNESS], an object that looked exactlly like the MOON wishing overhead. It looked just like a full moon except it was flying maybe 1000 ft. above ground. This is the first time I have told anyone. I tell you this thing looked like the moon with grayesh color, and even had what looked like crators from objects hitting it. I was 7 or 8 at the time making it around 1966-67 spring to summer, a cristal clear nite. This happened with in a few seconds,from over my school roof to maybe a mile away where trees got in the way. THIS EVENT IS BURNED INTO MY BRAIN AS IF IT HAPPENED MINUTES AGO. Please bare in mind that Gering is in the sticks.
