Huge craft hovering over a residential area...

I am not exactly sure of the date, but I remember the year and time exactly. I was sixteen years old and this single event is the reason I am a MUFON supporter and interested in the UFO phenomenon. I have never seen anything since that one experience.

I watched a huge craft hover over an area near my home. I could see it well and it was very slow, fading out of view behind a house. I cannot emphasize enough how large it was. It was oval-shaped and had many, many light on it.

The next afernoon at work, I told some people who thought I was crazy, at least until it was reported on our local news that many people saw this craft.

Years later, in 1998, I was watching a UFO documentary on television and saw a picture of the exact craft I saw. You don't forget things like that...

Anyway, the picture was taken in 1988 (same year I saw it) in Florida.

I would just love to know what it was.

Thank you...
