Further Description of Sighting: I was 10 years old at the time, and had received a pup tent as a gift. I had never slept outside before and asked permission from my parents to sleep in the back yard. As I was lying in the tent, and it was just twilight, my tent lit up completely with the light coming from outside. I thought it was maybe my father coming out with a big flash light to check on me. I went out of the tent, and the light was coming from above me.
I looked up, and there was a space ship! It was like one of those spinning tops that we would pump and let go of to spin as kids! It had round lights on the bottom and was moving slowly and completely silently. I whatched it go without fear for some reason, just curiosity and awe. I went in the back door of the house and calmly told my mother, who was washing dishes at the kitchen sink at the time, that I had seen a space ship.
She clicked her toungue and told my to come inside for the rest of the night. Sure enough, there were reports the next day of the sighting, so my mom was convinced. The thought that always crosses my mind now, is that anyone could be sitting inside in the evening whatching T.V., or reading, or anything, and something could be passing
overhead or outsid the window from the unknown without our knowledge.
