|Observed small gray disk.
My mother asked me to hoe her flower garden after dinner. So, as a 14 year old boy, I went out after dinner and began hoeing my mother's flower garden. Our home sat on a lot that was 80 x 234 ft. This garden sat at the 120 ft mark. As I was hoeing I was looking north. However, I turned around. I saw a disk shaped object face on.
This disk was about 15 inches in diameter. It was about 8 ft above the ground and was just beyond the rear property line. So this disk was about 120 feet away from me. The disk was a dull gray in color. I saw no markings or lights. It made no sound. The sky was clear and the temperature was pleasant. I watched this disk for about 5 minutes. Then the object began to recede slowly. It became smaller and smaller until I could not see it any more.
Total observing time was about 10 minutes.
