July 1971, Georgia back-woods, Large round object just above tree tops, no sound or lights.

Do you know if it would be too late in my life (age 51) to be hypnotized in hopes of revealing more information about my UFO encounter when I was 13?

My encounter took place in the back woods of Georgia in 1971. I was visiting with some friends that were my age. We were living in an isolated area that was home to 2 mobile homes. There was myself, another boy and 2 girls. There were no adults around at the time. It was about 3PM and the 4 of us were sitting outside in lawn chairs removing peas from their pods. We were just talking then out of no where a very large silver disk object appeared just above the treetops (Georgia pines) and approximately 50 yards away. The object did not have any lights or make any sound it did have a large shadow. The four of us saw the object at the same time and without saying a word to each other the 4 of us bolted to the inside of the mobile homes. One boy and girl bolted into one mobile home and the other girl and I bolted into the other mobile home. We still have not said anything to each other we were petrified.

When I got in the mobile home I grabbed a large knife out of one of the kitchen drawer and hid in a small closet in the kitchen that the garbage was kept in. After what seemed a long period of time I finally got the courage and started yelling for the other girl that was in the mobile home with me. She yelled back at me and we slowly left our hiding spots. She was hiding under the bed in the first bedroom. We eventually went back out and the disk was gone. We then went into the other mobile home and got the boy and girl out of there. When I returned home to Warner Robins AFB, GA the following weekend I shared my experience with my sister and she had told me that during the time I was gone there was a high level of UFO activity in the Georgia area.

Why I would like to be hypnotized is to get a better idea of how long we were actually hiding in the mobile homes. I have no memory of the actual time span that this took place. I also believe I would be able to better describe the UFO under hypnosis.
