Duration:3 minutes
multi-colored craft hovering above me.

I was 12 maybe 13 years old. I had a morning paper route and usually set out around 04:45 to start delivering my papers. When the event happened it was still dark and I was walking down a deadend road. The road stopped near a large wooded area.

I didn’t hear anythingbut all of a sudden these lights appeared overhead, directly over me. There were 4-5 separate lights…white, light gold and green were the colors. The lights were large not small and they, looking back, were about 200 feet off the ground.

I could not see the complete shape of the ship/aircraft but the leading edge that I did see was rounded so I am assuming the entire craft was round or oval. Being so young out by myself, I was shakien a bit, so I immediately looked away and began walking fast away from it. When I got a football field in length away I turned around. And it was gone. No noise nothing.

I have never told anyone about what I saw.
