I was about 7 years old and my brother was 8 years old. my uncle and I were sitting on the front porch eating popsicles and my brother started screaming and yelling and pointing to the sky, "look, look, look,..." I looked at and saw a large craft, that if I open my arms and put it in the air in a v shape, it would show about a five mile wide or possibly ten mile wide craft. It seemed to be about 5 to 800 feet off the ground and hovered there for about 5 minute.

I noticed all the clouds around it and the blue in the sky and the skin of The Craft seem to be like the mother of pearl on a clamshell. It seemed to move with an iridescent and had a dark tone to it and yet a silverish iridescents to it. It was the largest object that ever seen the sky and I was quite stunned it wasn't sure what I was looking at.

It shot off into the West sky as fast as lightning and I tried to follow it but was too fast. And then a brite pink color filled the sky and flashed across the whole horizon. It seemed like I could taste or even hear the color. Was very bizarre for my young mind and I was trying to figure it all out, when my uncle suddenly jerk me up by the arm and rushed me and my brother into the house and deadbolt the door and latch the chain and was peering out the window on the door.

My uncle what it was and he sternly told me,"Shhh! Be quiet, don't say anything!!! He then told me to go sit down in the living room and don't say anything to anybody about it.

I knew what I had seen was out of the ordinary and I didn't understand exactly what it was oh, but I knew that it was something not from this planet. My intuition told my young mind that it was from somewhere else.
