teen girl alone by stable sees dark grey hovering sphere

I was alone filling a bucket of water for a horse and noticed a dark grey sphere hovering stationery maybe 50 ft above the ground. I couldn't tell its size, or really its altitude. I addressed it, i.e. introduced myself, and asked it to wait.

I then ran up the hill to my house from the stable, and checked back a couple times to see if it was still there and it was until just before i entered the house. After I went up two flights of stairs and looked out a big picture window, having gotten my parents attention, it was gone.

I must have been about 14 at the time, maybe 15. At the time I was a high school student at a prestigious Southern California Prep School, and an award winning equestrian. I was mostly interested in science and wanted to become an astronaut.

My freshman year at Stanford I became ill and changed majors from physics to Values Technology and Society, and ultimately became a doctor. I now practice ob/gyn.

I have never seen any other UFO.
