Duration:2 Min.
There was a silver disk shaped object silently suspended in mid air positioned at a downward slant ot very far from the treeline.

I do not recall the day, month or even year however, to the best of my recollection, this event is 100% true. To my knowledge there is no way that this event could have been a hoaxed.

The year was about 1981 or 1982 and I was seven or eight years old at my home in Raynham, MA. It was just around dusk time in the front yard of my house when I happened to look up to sky and, at 4:00, saw a disc shaped object. I vividly remember the object as being disc shaped with a raised bump in the middle, silver colored, completely still and silent. The strangest part of the episode was that the object was slanted down at an angle almost as if staring at me. I watched, frozen in awe, for about two minutes before running inside the house to get my parents and a camera. By the time we made it back to the front yard, the object was gone. Moments later we all saw a shooting star.

The next night I again saw the same exact object but this time on the left sky. It was doing the exact same thing, just hovering there suspended in mid air at a downward slant. When I glanced away to yell for my parents, it was gone.
