Large red and orange sphere, balanced on a rock in 1987.

This happened to me when I was 7 years old and although I wanted to tell others about it as a child I was told I had to wait until I was older, so now I am older 25 to be exact and this is my story.

My babysitter and her boyfriend were over, it was night time I had recently begun 1st grade at Sir James Douglas and remember this because there was a large rock on the school grounds that I had just mastered climbing and was very proud of myself. We lived next to the school grounds and could cut across the field to get to the corner store on the other side of the school. That is what we did that night. We decided to go to the store my babysitter her boyfriend and I and were cutting through the grounds I was being a child and rambling on about something when my babysitter said "Stop for a moment ----- look up." And there perched on the large rock in the grounds was a sight I will never forget, a large now it seemed HUGE to me as big as a house but I was 7 and things just seemed big back then it was at least twice the size of the rock this large sphere it was red and orange seemed to swirl with these colors, almost like the sun and was balanced perfectly on this rock. we stood and stared at it for a few moments and then I asked if I could climb the rock and touch this glowing sphere. I don't know what possesed my babysitter to say yes but she did and I climbed up this rock as they stood and watched me. I remember climbing slowly up to this object and when I was within a foot of it reaching out my hand to touch it's side, I got within an inch of it's surface ( I didn't notice any change in temp) I stopped something in my head told me to leave, to go away, so I did I climbed down that rock and told my sitter we had to leave. So we left and as we walked away I looked over my shoulder and wished it away back to where it came from. We went to the store and when we came back it was gone. And there was no evidence of it having ever been there.

I have remembered that night in vivid detail since it happened and I write this in hopes that someone else may have seen something similar to what I did that night. Thank you for taking time to read my story it may seem tall but is every bit true.
