Light sphere blazes through the night sky deep in the winderness of the Sacramento mountains!!

First of all let me say that I have always thought the existence of UFOs very possible firstly because the government would very likely lie to us if half the rumors about Rosewell and such were true and secondly because I asked around and found that many of the people in my life have actually seen a UFO or UFOs before but were afraid to report it.(Ask your parents and grand parents especially, you'd be SURPIRSED what people have seen) Anyway, my story: I was on a backpacking trip at Henry Cowe state park with my father and his best friend, who have both seen UFOs by the way but were sleeping when I saw this one. It was the middle of the night after the first day of the trip when I saw it. I have heard stories from a few people about golden or multi-colored shining spheres that hover silently and move at incredible speeds, I even met a guy who said one followed his car for 45 minutes once, so I wasn't in shock when I saw one myself. I looked up and I saw something moving very fast across the night sky, at least 20 times faster than a plane. My eyes had to struggle to follow it as it darted by. It was WAY too big to be a shooting star, and it had no tail either, plus didn't move like a shooting star. From what I could see in the 20 seconds it was there it had a white color, like a light sort of, so it was different than the spheres I heard about previously. It came from beyond the horizon and just as fast as it came it darted back into the sky. I wasn't that shocked about it really, I didn't even wake my dad and Bob. I thought to myself: "That had to be a UFO", and then I shrugged it off and went back to swatting misquitos and trying to sleep. I think it's obvious these things exist, it's just that most of the proof of "sightings" either looks like or is B.S. or a hoax so it's difficult for us to find solid evidenct that these things exist. Even if I, by some lucky chance, happened to have a video camera nearby and I was fast enough to hit record in time to see that thing, it wouldn't be considered proof! . Anyone could just say I created a special affect with Adobe Photoshop(which I could do, I'm a film maker) of a light moving at unearthly speeds across the night sky. The problem is most people are too ignorant for the truth, and they will always be until a UFO lands in their backyard and the greys come out for a cup of tea and crumpets. For whatever reason the mysterious pilots of those things wish to remain anonymous, and for GOOD REASON. Earth people in general are very very stupid, if the truth came out today and president Bush was on T.V. shaking hands with an alien, people would panic and raise so much hell that I don't want to think what would happen to us or the aliens. Some advice: get over it guys, life is short. We can't convince the world UFOs exist until the aliens decide to convince the world UFOs exist.
