Disk in the City

I was 8 yers old and myself and some friends were playing in the area of East Crosier street in Akron. We came around a line of high hedges that lined the street across from my house. On the other side of the hedges was a open field area. Not a huge area but large enough to play ball. Thats what we were going to do. As we came around the corner of the hedge we all saw a silver disk approx 60 feet across just hoovering about 10 feet off the ground. It was very close to a house on the other side of the clearing. There was no sounds, no lights, it was bright day light and the sun was out. It just hoovered and would spin very slowly. We all looked at each other and said Wow! Then suddenly it thrust straight upward so fast it was like it vanished. A few seconds later, as we all were looking up into the sky, one of my friends pointed and yelled, There! There it is! As I again saw the craft. It was flying horizonal across the sky at about 2000 feet and there was a aircraft near it at one point. I remember the sun light shinning off the plane but not the disk. I can see it today as if it just happened. Because of obvious reasons I never told anyone about this until recent years. In fact as I was visiting my older brother in North Carolina. I brought this up and took a deep breath as I awaited my brother to begin to laugh. But he said" Ya I saw it too! Not that day but another night with some of his friends. He is 4 years older than me. Same kinda craft but it was flying very close to the water tower up on the top of the hill. There was a school there also. I think it was Hoban. There is no person on this planet that can convince me that Aliens do not exsist. Its a fact they are here!
