I was 5 years old and playing on Guerlain St., Bronx, NY.
I looked up and saw what looked like a baseball gliding in a straight path around 15 mph towards Tremont Ave.
I crossed the street and tried to follow it on Thieriot Ave.
After a short distance the object moved faster and then headed toward the sky.
At the time it didn't occur to me to tell anyone.
This is the first time I have reported it since I am getting old and want it recorded.
No one would have believed me way back then and might not now.
I read an article recently about experiments in the 1950s and thought I should report it just for the record.
I don't believe I imagined it.
