I had to go outside, saw it when I went out with my little boy.

My mother, brother and sister left my son and I at home. It was late, before 7 pm. It was warm and did not get dark until around 8:30. We were watching TV and it went out. I tried to get it back on but could not. I tried to call neighbor that had worked on it, but phone was dead. I could hear the dogs barking at something and I picked up my son and went out to see. It was daylight. When I went out, the dogs had quit barking and were standing perfectly still. I thought that was strange but before I could dwell on it, I turned to my left and saw an object, round, no markings, no openings, in the corner of the field under tree branches. It was a warm, not hot, yellow and orange, several feet above the ground and about 15 to 20 feet tall. I could see under it and tree limbs above it. This is mountain area and we were in a valley, the area behind the UFO was a mountain. I walked to the fence and I felt so happy to see it. I ask it to come closer that I was not afraid and it did. The next thing I knew, I could hear a car or truck coming up the road, my thought was that I hoped it could see what I was and when the lights hit me, I looked back and the object was gone. Now, I know it was then dark, something I only remembered in the 80's. It was Mother and I wondered why they had come back early, I ask her and she said they weren't back early. I told them about it and they thought I was crazy. We went back in the house and the TV was working and the phone was working. It was then that a report came on TV and said a UFO had been seen over Jacksonville, Ark., about 70 miles away and it was described like the one I saw in the field. I pushed it back in my memory because I felt no one would believe me. In the 80's, TV was full of investgations on UFO's, still I did not talk about it. My friend and I were going into town and she ask if I had watched TV and saw the UFO thing, and I told her I had not. It was then she told me that one evening she had gone outside and saw a round object behind my house a few months earlier. She said she lost an hour. I said nothing of what I had seen, she did not know about it. It was then that a mental picture came to mind about that night in 65, of the clock at mothers, when I returned to the house it said 8:15, I had gone out at 6:30, apx. That time period is still blank for me. The time I saw it was at mothers and the time my friend saw it, it was 100 miles away. I moved back to Scotland last year. One day I walked to the spot and put my hand on the ground and said that I was back and I wanted to know why. A blinding headache hit me, I left the area quickly and have not done that again. I never liked this area, where I now live, but last year, I changed my mind and insisted that we move away from the Benton area to Scotland. I was very surprised, but I had such a strong need to get back here. In the months after I saw the object in the field, I had such bad headaches, that I was put in the hospital, they found nothing wrong, and they went away in October of 65. My son that was with me that night says he remembers nothing, he was 3. But all his life he has fought to live here and he lives on the place. In order to work, one has to drive at the least, 50 miles for a job. I drive to Little Rock to work, 70 miles one way. By the end of the day, I begin to get anxious about getting back, I am almost sick with the need! I am ok once I get here. In 1962, I was pg with my son. Several times I would wake up in the mornings with the bottom of my feet black. I have a slight memory of talking to someone in the alley at our house. I had never sleep walked before and no memory of doing so, again. What concerns me now is the need to be here, as if I am waiting. I would like to know if anyone has seen the object I recreated. Last night I found a picture of the same thing on David Fowler, Unknown UFO, picture #2.
