Sphere hovered over neighbors house; possible entity sighting.

It was during the summer of 1970. The place was Toms River, New Jersey. We lived on Fawn Drive. The object appeared around midnight. The light woke me up from my sleep. The object looked like the full moon and it hovered over the house of the neighbor across the street. The actual moon was to the south of the object. I was looking east toward the Atlantic Ocean.

After observing the object for what seemed like 10 minutes I returned to bed, very fearful. After a short while I felt paralyzed and could not even yell for my parents. Shortly after that I saw what looked like a humanoid figure dressed in some sort of space suit wearing a helmet. I felt lulled into a sleep.

The next thing that woke me up was the sound of what was at least two fighter jets. We lived close to Lakehurst NAS; McGuire AFB was a little farther away; but then again nothing is far away in New Jersey. After the jets passed over my sense of fear went away and I fell back asleep.

Interestingly enough, a neighbor two housed down the street, who had mocked us for my sighting was, in his words, "buzzed by some UFO's on my way to work the other morning."
