Bright light - 12ft Sphere

Today is March 2nd 2006. In Oct. 1967 I (age18) was taking three friends home from the recreation center in the Village. As we turned a corner on a dirt road, in front of us was a round circle of light about 12ft in circumference. I stopped about 15ft away and the car stop running. When the car would not start I got out of the car and stood with the door open, "the guys were yeiling to get back in and lets go". The object went straight up, stop and moved straight out over the lake and then it went into wrap speed. It was amazing how fast it was. I got back into the car, the guys yeiling "lets go, lets go", I turned the key and the car started, one guys notic the time and said he would be in trouble for geting in late, we had been there 35 minutes but it seem like 2 minutes. THE 4TH WITNESSES: I worked at the Village Supermarket and when I was taking a break with some other guys this co-worker asked if anyone saw anything flying out over the lake last night, I said, a bright light? He became excited when he found out someone else had seen this and gave us his version of what he saw; the brightness, how it changed directions only horizontaly and diagonaly. I don't remember anything happening in those 35 minutes that we lost.
