While walking home from small store in our apt.

Complex, I saw a bright lite heading down from sky. I thought the light looked as the shape of a cross and being raised as a Christian I wondered if it was the return of Jesus.The light stopped abruptly at the electric wires onhi way 51. I clearly saw a cigar shaped object with lights fading off and on across the horizontal side of it.I also saw what appeared to be something or someone moving around inside at the far end. I watched for a long time 10– 15 minutes, and started to walk on and turned again to see it speed up to space in 1,000th of a second in a blaze of orange light and then I Knew I had witnessed a flying vehicle that was absolutely not of Anything in this world. I was 11 years old at the time, and very mature and highly intelligent for my age, with high marks in school. My parents asked me” where have you been? What took you so long? I don’t remember going into any explicit detail. I am now 71 years old, and have wondered if anyone else saw it on that autum! n evening in 1960?
