THIS SIGHTING TOOK PLACE WHEN I WAS A CHILD. I WAS 9 1/2 yrs. old. IT was the summer vaccation for the school children .WE had been out of school for about 3 or 4 weeks. School was always out by JUNE 15 th. That would make the date about middle of JULY... I was "OUTSIDE " kid. NO one could keepme inside, no matter how they tried. I was out there "BUILDING " TREE HOUSES, or whatever I cold get wood & nails to build. THIS DAY WAS most likely the week-end, because my MOM had sent me to the STORE. I was on my way up the block, (WE lived in the MILITARY PROJECT.) When I noticed I Was Walking IN THE SHADE" & IT was a very hot day, for the BAY AREA. I LOOKED, EXPECTING TO SEE RAIN CLOUDS, BUT NO CLOUDS. THIS PUZZLED me. I STARED STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR. FINALLY, I FOCUSED MY EYES ON "SOMETHING , that was WAY - WAY - UP THERE. IF I had to guess, I would say , at least 15,000 ft. (now that I have flown , many times in a small airplane.)I could not believe what I was seeing. Confused , I ran down the street, yelling, "WHAT IS THAT ? WHAT IS THAT ?" NO one seemed to listen to me ?? I couldnt figure out WHY ?LATER when I thought about It , I would QUICKLEY , CONVINCE MYSELF THAT NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE ME.WHAT I SAW, WAS almost the SAME THING THAT THE MOVIE " INDEPENDENCE DAY " had in it.UNBELIEVABLE, ISNT IT . I ALMOT FAINTED , WHEN I SAW THAT MOVIE, BROUGHT BACK BAD MEMORIES. SEE ,THAT IS WHY I KNEW NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE ME WHEN I WAS A CHILD . YOU MOST LIKELY DONT BELIEVE ME , AS AN ADULT....IT wasPEUTER" in color. HUGE, HUGE < HUGE >THE clouds were rolling very fast & the edges would show here, & there ,until I had a comlete picture of the COMPLETE SIZE " I ALWAYS THOUGHT I WAS NOT SUPOSED TO TALK ABOUT IT , SO I DIDNT .. I COULDNT SEE ANY "DETAIL" ON IT . IT had to be several "MILES" ACROSS .IT COVER THE WHOLE SKY. OVER RICHMOND..
