This incident is my very first of two in my lifetime I have witnessed and happened when I was 18 which was a little more than 30 years ago, but will stay with me and my 2 brothers forever.

Me and my 2 brothers were heading back home from playing tennis in a small town about 12-15 minutes from where we lived. We were heading due west on county road 318 into a small town called Flemington Florida, SW of Gainesville Florida approximately 20 miles.

My 17 year old brother was driving his Impala down a slight hill and I was in the passenger seat and for some odd reason was looking to my left, which is the driver's side and seen a large oval bright white object heading in a south to north direction which would have put it directly in front of my brother's car.

I said to both my brother's look look what is it? Nobody knew, so I told my brother to pull over to the shoulder of the road and he did hesitantly.

The car was still running and in park, as the object go closer he said I am leaving, and I said no I want to see what this is, I than grabbed the keys out of the ignition put them in my hand, got out of the car and sat on the hood of the car while this object came closer and closer.

It was oval shaped, no lights, but a very bright white glow that did not hurt your eyes. By this time it was moving right over the front of the car at a very slow rate of speed, and was absolutely quiet. I would estimate the object was about 100 feet in diameter and it nearly directly over us and I could hear my brother saying lets get out of here. My response to him was why if they wanted to do anything to us we couldn't do anything about it anyway.

So while I was sitting on the hood looking at this thing I had a really weird feeling that they knew everything about me. It's hard to explain.

So then after a few more minutes as it started going away from the car to the north of us I noticed it higher in the sky and in a blinking of an eye it flew off.

It was a clear evening right around twilight when all this happened!.

We finally got home about 5 minutes later and I remember the first thing my mother said as my 17 year old brother walked into the house (my god you look like you have seen a ghost).
