I was 8 years old, playing in the sand volleyball court at the park down the street from my house.
I was engrossed in my activity, burying my collection of Happy Meal toys in the sand, and then digging them back out, repeat.
I was looking down, but decided that I needed to look up because the world around me had lost all sound.
There was no longer any ambient noise, no traffic noise from the busy streets just a block over.
No more dogs barking, o more birds chirping...absolute silence.
I looked at the street that bordered the park, and that is when I saw it.
It looked like a stealth bomber turned sideways, nose leading, one wing down toward the road and the other pointed up at the sky.
Completely gloss black in color, as tall as a house, shaped like an arrowhead.
It was cruising the street at 3 m.p.h.
Just gliding over the road.
I watched it for maybe 20 seconds.
As soon as it had passed behind some 2 story houses and out of my sight, I got my hearing back full force.
I ran home with my piss soaked pants and never spoke a word of it to anybody.
