I am not sure of the year. I was about 14 or 15 years old had been on a date with a young man I met at a church retreat. It was my first car date. I was hugging the door knob I was so shy.

On the way back near Ann Arbor we saw a disc shaped object at about tree line maybe 100 yards away. It was probably 40 - 50 feet across. It was shiny light grey and had lights around it. Maybe even windows. We sat in the car and wondered what the heck it was. We were listening to the news on the radio, probably an Ann Arbor station... and they said a UFO had been sighted in the Ann Arbor area. We peeled out of there so fast. Because it was before I was driving, I wasn't paying attention to roads and have no idea exactly where we were. I remember scooting to the middle of the car.

The odd thing is that it took me years to remember it again. I thought people would make fun of me. I can't even remember telling my Mom about it when I came home. Now I think about it a lot. I hear about people sighting "lights in the sky" and calling it a UFO sighting and think mine was huge compared to that. There were lots of UFO sightings in the Ann Arbor area and they were always "swamp gas". This was no swamp gas. But I can't find a record of a sighting in the 1961, 1962 or 1963 timeframe in this area. Lots in 1965.
