It Looked Like A Movie UFO

It Looked Like A Movie UFO

Date: July 14, 1947

Location: Richmond, CA

This sighting took place when i was a child of 9½ years old.

It was the summer vacation for the school children.

We had been out of school for about 3 or 4 weeks.

School was always out by June 15th.

That would make the date about middle of July.

I was an outside kid.

No one could keep me inside, no matter how they tried.

I was out there building tree houses, or whatever I cold get wood & nails to build.

This day was most likely the week end, because my mom had sent me to the store.

I was on my way up the block, we lived in the military project.

When I noticed I was walking in the shade & it was a very hot day, for the bay area.

I looked, expecting to see rain clouds, but no clouds.

This puzzled me.

I stared straight up in the air.

Finally, I focused my eyes on something, that was way, way up there.

If I had to guess, I would say, at least 15,000'.

Now that I have flown, many times in a small airplane.

I could not believe what I was seeing.

Confused, I ran down the street, yelling:

What is that? What is that?

Nobody seemed to listen to me.

I couldn't figure out why.

Later when I thought about it, I would quickley, convince myself that no one would believe me.

What I saw, was almost the same thing that the movie Independence Day had in it.

Unbelievable, isnt it?

I almot fainted, when I saw that movie, brought back bad memories.

See, that is why I knew no one would believe me when I was a child.

You most likely don't believe me either, as an adult.

It was pewter/grey in color.

Huge, huge.

The clouds were rolling very fast & the edges would show here & there.

Until I had a complete picture of the complete size I always thought I was not supposed to talk about it, so i didnt.

I couldn't see any detail on it.

It had to be several miles across, as it covered the whole sky over Richmond.
