Bright white light from U.F.O.

When I was young boy around 10, I would sleep outside in the summertime to enjoy the cool night.

One night I saw a slender ovular-shaped, bright white light, which seemed to emanate or radiate out from below. So I figured if I could be underneath it, it would probably look like a saucer (circular) shaped craft. I also estimate it was really long, because the Uptown are of my Hometown is probably a couple miles from where we lived back then.

I walked up the steps to the new deck to get a better view. It was just moving across the sky horizontally (over or behind the Uptown hills of my hometown, maybe one hundred feet off the gorun ((sic--ground??)) or more). Then it stopped, then ascended, until it looked liked it left our atmosphere. I can't remember now whether it was moving away or going towards Concord Naval Weapons Station.

I still feel bad because to this day I wish I could have waken my Mother and Step-Father, because I could have knocked on their sliding-glass door. But I was so in awe of this craft, all I could do was stare at this object moving across the sky.

I now think that either it was extra-terrestrial or a Government U.F.O. since Popular Mechanics did an article that said our Government has mini-reactors in these U.F.O.'s and that traces of spent nuclear material has been found where these craft land.
