Silent UFO hovered right above 5 kids.

Going home from a Boy Scout meeting at the grade school elementary school one evening, three of us: ((deleted--witness #2/male)), ((deleted--witness #3/male)) and myself had stopped behind the home of ((witness #4/female)) and began throwing some dirt clods at two of them from behind a dirt berm. While I started to tie my shoe, I looked up as the girls pointed up, and saw an oval spaceship silhouetted in black with a white lights beaming out of windows or port holes. It was only 100 feet or so above us and moving slowly and totally silent, unlike I had ever seen to this day. It was moving slowly from east to west and about eight seconds later, it was right above us and stopped, hovering completely silent above us. While we stood there spellbound, it had changed to a green color with white light coming from the port holes, and a few seconds later, it changed to red and as it quietly went away from us, it immediately disappeared. No sounds of rushing, no black silhouette, or nothing. It completely disappeared as if it had entered another dimension. The three of us ran to ((witness #2)) home about a couple hundred yards away, jumped in his yard, and relayed all this to his mother. I ran down the street to my home and told my father and practically made him report it to the newspaper. The next day, a lady on the west end of the city had reported a meteor falling over the eastside, but we knew the truth. It was a UFO unlike any technology I had ever witnessed. Twenty years later, I spoke with ((witness #2)) who repeated the same exact viewing, etched into his mind as I had.

((NUFORC Note: Date may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact.
