Creature in transparent sphere panics at being seen by nine year old boy.

While playing with my cousins in the front yard of my grandparents home at night, I suddenly was overcome by a fear response. The hair on my neck and arms stood straight up and I suddenly became very afraid.

I stopped playing chase with my brother and cousins. I was being observed by strange looking creature in a transparent bronze sphere, fifteen feet across, approx. thirty feet in the air. The craft was positioned next to the power lines and was completely silent and motionless.

I could not see the top half of the craft because the night sky was very dark that night. The interior of the craft was illuminated and I observed instrumentation racks, three layers with space in between, a red led type light was on the middle panel on the left interior side (my left). Left front midline was a stair with round pipe handrail, this handrail came across the middle of the craft to the right.

The creature appeared to be seated at a control console, but I could only see the upper torso, arms and head. The bottom area, from the stair to the right under the midline center area where the creature sat, was dark except for two small white LED type lights.

I saw no movement in there. My focus came back to the creature, and I just stood there staring at it. This lasted three to four seconds and then the creature turned and our eyes met. It knew I was watching and I observed a panic type reaction from it. The eyes widened, the head and shoulders moved up and back, the arms came out to each side, it looked left and then right and then down at the control area.

Now this is where it gets interesting. Its eyes return to stare at me while each arm independently performs eight to ten adjustments to the controls, in front and to the sides of the creature, it did this without looking where the hands were,and at speed almost to hard to follow.

When it completed the activity it just leaned back slightly and we stared at each other. My brother ran up beside me, I grabbed his shoulder, and for the only time took my eyes off the craft, pointing up I yelled "look", he turned his head side to side but did`t look up.

The craft was moving now, due north above me at about forty feet twenty mph and in total silence. It was still transparent and as it disappeared into the darkness the pilot turned and looked at me, t did not return.

When I ran into the house shouting, "I just saw a flying saucer" all the adults just laughed.

I was nine years old when I saw that thing and have spent the last forty five years trying not to think about it.
