Duration: 60 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
large quiet craft, covered with blackness, and "stars" to not be noticed, moving slowly southwest to north north east.

I was in seventh grade. I had a great love for the stars. each night I would stare at the stars. As I nightly looked out my window from my bed, I knew what I should see when I looked. The night in question, when I lay down, I looked to my friends, the stars, there was a wrongness. The stars I expected were not there. I was mighty confused, but as I continued to look I saw that stars north of the wrongness were disapearing, and stars south of the wrongness were appearing. I realised that the stars I saw, that were wrong, were moving as a group, in a north north east dirrection. The "group" was moving, very slowly, blocking out the stars in an enormous area. I heard no sound from it. The "group" was made up of large, small, dim, and brighter "stars". as if it were camafloging a huge craft from the casual observer. I would not have noticed, but I looked out the same window, at the same time, every night. And I looked to the stars as a consistant. I was extreamly excited, I ran to another window, but It was covered and could not see out. Now, I would try to get pictures, then, I went back to bed. I didn't even go outside. The next day I told my seventh grade english teacher, Mr ((name deleted)). He told me I was dreaming. That it was not true. But I knew what I saw. But because I choose to not be laughed at, I did not tell any one else. Till now.
