Summer 1984, Cigar Shaped Craft seen in Nottingham U.K.

I originally sent the text below to an english based UFO site approx 10-12 years after my sighting (but got no interest). I wont change anything i said then to how i remember it now. i am slso unsure about the month or the exact date, but after reading my account you should be able to figure out the exact date.

Description: During the opening ceromony of the L.A. olympics(on T.V.).myself and my mother went outside to check on our dog,and we witnessed a cigar shaped craft approx. 150 feet in length,it had about 5 or 6 type of portholes,with silloetted humanish type beings at the seemed to hover about 30 feet above a neighbours house(with no sound).the neighbours house was about 150 yards away from us,and i can remember our dog barking at it.and then in what seemed a second later,there was no craft and our dog was no longer barking,and we found her asleep in the lounge.this is something that i will never forget,but i`ve always thought something else happened that night,it always seemed strange that one moment the craft was there and the next moment, the blink of a eye.

End Additionaly, i can remember arguing with my mum as to who should run upstairs and get my camera....she only recently reminded me of this.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that date of sighting is approximate. PD))
