We observed a large, round object "hovering" over the highway in late may of 1983.

It was late May in the Early 1980's. My cousin and I, both 13 at the time, observed a large round "saucer" type object over the highway while staying at a nearby campground. The object was observed while gathered around a campfire. We were singing songs with approximately 10 other "campers". It was about 8:00 in the evening. Someone noticed the object in the sky and we all stopped singing and became entranced with the object. It was very Large, perhaps 100 yards wide, and had lights all around it. (It looked like a "UFO" looks in most hollywood movies) The object just hovered over the highway and campground for what seemed to be a half hour or more. In that time no one said a word and we all were motionless and entranced with the object. The few cars that were on the highway at the time the object appeared had come to a complete stop and no other cars appeared. It seemed as tho time were standing still ...other than the fact that we could plainly see the object and that we were aware of our surroundings. After the object began to move away, everything went back to "normal". The singing was started again and the cars on the highway took off. No one mentioned the object we had just seen. Later that night, I woke up and got out of our tent to use the restroom. I then observed the object several miles away in the sky, did my business, then just went back to sleep. My cousin and I did not discuss this at all until approximately 5 years later. (and have since discussed it about every 5 years or so) We both recalled seeing it and all the same details of the "sighting", and, to this day we are 100% convinced that we what we seen was most definitely some form of "alien" spacecraft. We did not see little green men and don't recall being "abducted" but we are sure this happened and would like others to know!
