4 year old son sees and draws flying saucer.

My 4 year old son seen a ufo near the small town of Metlakatla, Alaska. I was outside with my son reading the news on my phone and watching him and his friends playing tag in a playground right outside of our house. My son runs by me and I see him in the corner of my eye he comes to a dead stop. I don't think nothing of it and continue reading the news on my phone. My son says a couple seconds later How did that happen? I look over at my son and hes looking up in the sky with a confused look on his face. Glancing up where hes looking at i see nothing and ask him How did WHAT happen? He was kind of a loss for words and eventually says, "It was there then it dissapeared." He says this 2 times trying to explain the best a four year old could. after the second time saying this his eyes got a little bigger and he says with excitement "I seen a spaceship." I was caught off guard and now I was at a loss for words. I say, "What?! What do you mean?" Then with more conf! idence and having a better idea of what my son was talking about he points up in the sky and says a spaceship was there then disapeared. I then ask him, "You seen a spaceship?" He says with excitement, "Yes!" It was right there! I immediately start walking my son to my house which is across the street from the playground and tell him with a big smile and trying to make him agree to come with me and say, "I want you to draw me what you seen. OK?" halfway to my house I stop my son and tell him to close his eyes and imagine the spaceship after 2 seconds or so I ask him if he sees it. He responded, " Yes."

I then pick him up and rush him in the house As I'm looking for a pen and paper I explain to my wife what my son is claiming he seen. She was looking at me like I was crazy! When I finish explaining to my wife what just took place I lay a pen and paper in front of my son and tell him to draw what he seen. He draws a flying saucer!! I draw with my son almost everyday we have never dre! w a flying saucer or anything of the sort. The closest thing ! we have ever drawn to a flying object is a small float plane which we see everyday. As his father I can confidently say that his reaction was a REAL reaction. His look on his face was a REAL surprised and confused look on his face. His story when he was trying to explain it to me was a REAL story that was coming from what he really did see. I have the drawing hanging up on my fridge.
