Sighted, followed and was followed by space craft and then had and still have lump in earlobe.

I do not usually talk about this experience (Most people would think I'm Crazy)...and have pretty much blocked it out of my mind until recently. It was late evening - early morning on the night of March 31-April 1, 1966. (This is a date I will always remember) A friend of mine and I had picked up another friend from work who worked the afternoon shift at an auto plant and were returning to the driver of the vehicles home in Dearborn, Michigan. I was 19 at the time. My two friends were 17 and 24. We were heading north on Monroe street. We had just drove past Outer Drive when I had a very strange feeling. About a block past Outer Drive, Monroe makes about a 45% turn to the left. It is just past that point when we all spotted a "Space Craft" hovering over a Public swimming pool/playground located at an elementary school off to our left. I use the word Space Craft, because it was NOT a UFO as we saw it VERY clear. It was about 200 feet from us at about 50-75 feet in the air. We saw it so clear that we could see the partitions that seperated the crafts lit up windows. It was boomerang shaped with a row of large bright white windows. It was about 75 feet wide. The craft had a red glowing light on it underside with smaller lights on it left and right side. It made no sounds. The only unusual sounds were a static noise on the radio in the car we were in when we were near the craft. As we stopped to watch it, my friend who was driving, blinked the cars head lights at it. This is when it started to move slowly. The rest of the details of that night are not clear except that I remember we followed it (were led by it) for about 10 minutes and that it seemed to land it a wooded area West of Telegraph road at an area that was then known as Crowley Park. This is when the rest of the nights becomes cloudy in my memory...until sometime after when we went running into a all night Hamburger diner on Telegraph Road. There were two persons in the diner that also saw the craft as it was flying away from the area. All three of us had (and I still do) a lump in our ear lobe after the encounter. I have not seen the other two that were with me in several years, so I can not say if they still have the lump or not. I have been haunted by VERY BAD dreams and odd things happening to me from that night on. It was just recently that I remembered another encounter some seven or eight years later with a HUGE craft. All the details of that encounter are slim in my mind. I hope to some day be hypnotised to bring all of the memories out...and to have the lump under my ear lobe removed and studied.
