I remember for sure it was a Sunday and it had to be in either September or October, because it was still Tshirt and short weather and i know it was sunday because being italian sunday is sauce day. I remeber eating dinner our usual sunday dinner time, about 4ish.

After dinner, i ran back out to hang with my friends for an hour or 2 because i had school the next day and had to be home by 7. Anyways, i walk up to my friends house and me and about 4 or 5 other kids my age were just hanging out outside. Finally it was time to walk home.

On that walk home by myself, just looking up clear as day a huge bright light, that resembled a mini sun. It was huge and I didnt see any particular shape or colors other than it was round and the light that emulated from it. Being that coming down my street at the end of the block was a wooded area (where miggy's now stands) and it was hovering i would say about halfway below and above the treeline, but it was set farther back. But you could see it above the treeline.

I know i wasnt seeing things because a neighbor, a mom of 2 was about to get into her car, but she saw what i saw and we were just both staring at it like WTF.

I never really thought about it again till a few years ago, and i can not actually say what brought the memory up, but i did remember it, and the visual scenario of it sticks with me till this day.
