I saw into disc with clear openings under it, chased by police at tree top level, then hesitating directly above my home.

I was preparing for bed with no lights on in the room I shared with my younger brother one night, and while pulling my sweatshirt up over my head, I felt a sudden surge of what I can only describe as something like an electric current run through my body starting at my scalp and flowing down all the way to my feet. As I quickly removed the shirt, I noticed flashing red lights reflecting off the upermost branches of the fruit trees outside the high open window at the top of the bedroom wall. I could see the bottom of the eaves, and they were in shadow just above the top of the window. As I was wondering what angle the red light was coming from, the rounded leading edge of what I would see later was a saucer shaped craft slowly came into view from the north, directly above the house, moving away from me very slowly to the south, blocking out the stars as it went. At that point I was less than 30 feet from the bottom of the saucer, about 8 to 10 feet to the west of it's center. At several poimts around the rim of the vehicle were bright bluish-white lights that blinked slowly on and off. When the lights were on, they were a solid field of light with no filaments or bulbs visible,even as close as I was. When they went off, there was nothing in that spot, as if the skin of the ship had instantly covered them over.It made absolutely no sound, but my German Shepherd was throwing a fit in the back yard, as it was moving directly toward him. As I realized this was something out of the ordinary, to say the least, I began to notice details on the bottom edge and body of the craft. It was moving so slowly that it took 3 or 4 seconds to move about 15 feet. That was when I first saw the detailed edge of a strangely shaped window in the underbody of the craft. It took perhaps another second or so before I could actually see into the interior. All this time, I was frozen in my tracks, unable to move. I was so frightened by what I was seeing, that I wanted to run and warn my Mother of what was happening.! But the harder I tried to move, the more I realized that I couldn't. The craft moved very smoothly and steadily, not wobbling in the least, and the flashig red lights reflected off it's surface as if it were made of polished chrome. When it reached a point directly above the dog, he suddenly became quiet. I could see at that time that it was perhaps 30 feet or so across. Within a second or so it was no longer right above me, and I found I could finally move, so I began screaming at the top of my lungs. I remember my brother waking up at that point, and I ran out of the room without saying anything to him. I met my Mother in the hall, and told her what had happened. She said that the lights were from a police car she had seen stop in front of the house. I finally convinced her that there was more to it than that, and she went to look out the back door. I was so shaken up that I couldn't go with her. She returned and told me that she had seen the craft moving slowly away to the south, when it quickly accelerated away faster than a jet, and disappeared to the south. The police report appeared in the local newspaper the next day, saying the officers had chased a flying disc down our road to a point directly in front of our house, where it suddenly slowed and turned southward, flying exactly over our home, then sped off in a southerly direction at incredible speed. As we lived quite close to Selfridge Air Force Base, both my family and the officers were well aquainted with the different types and speed of military aircraft at the time, so when they say incredible speed, they mean it. That incident so traumatized me, and my Mother, that I blocked it out of my mind for years afterward, and even now, I can't bring my mind to recall certain details of what I saw. Slowly over the years, I've been able to remember a little more, and a little more, but not enough to satisfy my curiosity. I want to remember who or what I saw inside that ship, and I know there were certain details about the edges of the windows that ! absolutly astounded me for some reason, but my memory will not yet allow me to know these things. I truly hope that someday I will. This was my first of several related incidents, and by far the most documented, what with police officers as additional witnesses, so I decided to report it on this website. After keeping it to myself all this time, it feels good just to know it has finally been reported.
