Further Description of Sighting: I was walking home from the High School Bus drop off for the students who lived in Riverdale. My friend, Jay and I had to walk up 66th Avenue (a rather steep road with grass and paths on either side – there were at this time no sidewalks) and turn right onto 67th Avenue to get to our homes. It was about a mile walk. Being Fall, leaves were piles against the fences fronting the homes along the walk.

At the top of 66th Avenue we saw a large pile of leaves and heard the rustling of leaves – we also saw some movement. It appeared as if a squirrel or some small animal was playing under the leaves. We walked over when suddenly this VERY bright ring-shapped object rose from the pile of leaves. We walked closer and were no farther than 12″ from the object.

It appeared to be made from a translucent material with this brightly lit blue/white smokey substance inside the ring. We could see the “smoke” moving inside the ring. The ring began to move up vertically slowly, then slowly picked up speed. It kept rising up towards the sky and soon it disappeared into the sky.

Jay asked me why I didn’t touch or grab the object. “I was afraid I would dispensary” was my reply. I asked him why HE didn’t grab the object and his answer was the same as mine. What we saw was not a “dust devil” or anything cause by the climate. It was a solid object moving under some control. I have never shared this story.
