Myself and my friend observed a cigar-shaped craft hovering in a field. We observed the phenomnon for twenty minutes the left the field.

This encountered occurred about thirty years ago. However it left an impact on the both of us to be not forgotton. I and my friend were playing in a Large field in Rosemead Ca. It was a place we went frequently to play and as we were riding our bikes to "our fort" we had built in the field. The time was in the morning around 0700. As we were riding our bikes we both noticed something "hovering" in the field before us. The distance I can approximate to about 500 yards away from us at a 15 degree angle from horizon. The size of the object was approximate three inches (as I would see it from my view). The object was cigar in shape with red lights around the length of the Object. It appeared to rotate on the longer axis, slowly. Both my friend and my self looked at each other to confirm what we were looking at. We both agreed to what we saw was the same. We continued to watch the object for the next 15 minutes(5 minutes or so had transpired). We noticed that the object made no noise that we could hear (at that distance). It continue to rotate and hovered there. We then both looked at each other and again reaffirmed what we saw and be came shakened, left in a hurried mannner to our perspective homes. My mother noticed I was visable shakened and scared. I told her what had happened to us. She preceded to call my friend's mom to confirmed my story. My friend's mother told her that he (my friend) had reported the same to her. Both parents dismissed the occurance. Since then, I have spoken to my friend after the occurance (twenty years later) He still affirms the events of that fateful day. To this day It has bothered me and will always remember. By coincidence, Years later, Southern California Edison has built there corporate office over the very site. Thank you for reading this persons account of a event he will not soon forget.
