Disc shaped green ufo

It was still daylight. The sun was not far from setting. I was 7 at the time when I saw the craft.

I looked out of my bedroom window and saw a green disc in the sky with faded yellow lights, like windows around the craft. It was not illuminated in anyway. Did not show any form of lights, apart from the yellow windows and the green seemed to be the colour of the material the craft was made from.

The craft was moving slowly up into the sky. It looked as it had landed in the forest that was behind our house, Hainult Forest in Essex.

As I was saying it was moving slowly into the sky and as I looked closer it was moving up in a chube of cloud that seemed to be trying to camouflage itself In the normal clouds.

I think the craft was being lifted up by another craft that was above the clouds beyond my view.

As the craft went higher into the sky I called for my mum and she saw it too along with her boyfriend.

They brushed it off and said I had watched too much Star Trek, but I no what we all saw but he now admits it too.

The dates and time shown May not be correct as it was too long ago to remember.
