Duration:several minutes
when i was about 10 yrs old my dad sent me to the store for bread. i left the house and headed south 3 houses and turned left (east) for 2 houses. i stopped at stop sign on the corner across from the store and checked for traffic before crossing. there was no cars out or no one around. i looked north up 12th st and there it was, a 200ft around ufo. it was metallic colored,saucer shaped, and the bottom was covered in lights blinking all colors all over the bottom in no aparent order. it was very close about 4 house down the street, maybe 300 ft, and no more than 200ft in the air. it made no noise at all and was completely stationary. i just stared at it in awe for a couple of minutes when it started to drift slowly towards me, i then ran across st, through large parking lot and into the store. there wasnt any customers in the store that i could see. the cashiers asked what was wrong and i said i seen a ufo. they just laughed. i then bought my bread and slowl! y went back out, it was gone. i walked across parking lot continually looking over the sky but nothing. when i came to the place i seen it before i looked down 12th street. at the end of the street is the beginning of a large amount of woods. i then seen the craft rise up from about 1000ft in the woods to just abouve tree level and started back towards me at a good rate. i then ran back to my house and told my dad, sister, and her boyfriend,they didnt believe me. after several minutes of begging they came out with me to look but it was gone. it didnt come back this time. i was surprized that no one else had seen it as it is a well populated area, however, 10 yrs later i was working with a girl that told me a similar story with the same craft discription and it happened in the late 70's. she grew up only about 3 miles from where i grew up.
