I remember it so well to this day.

I was in class getting ready for the day's dismissal time at 3 pm. All of us had our coats on and were sitting and waiting for our teacher to tell us to stand. It was a bright, sunny day and I was sitting near the window when I happened to look up and out.

There in the sky was a large round saucer shape disk slowing gliding in the sky. It was a white object and at some point it reflected sunlight on its edge. I signalled to a boy sitting next to me and he looked out too. We didnt know what it was and at that time I believed it was someone in a parachute. The teacher dismissed us and as I got outside, I looked up but the object was gone. I assumed it was a parachute. I never forgot the sight but a few years later, logic reasoned that it couldnt have been a parachute I witnessed. There would have to have been a disabled aircraft for this to occur, and it dawned on my 11 year old mind that what I witnessed was an actual UFO.
