I was about 3 or 4 years old, not yet started school, when I was up early in the morning with my mom and dad.
Dad was preparing to go to work and it was in the summertime.
I recall it being early in the morning, break of dawn, and walking outside with dad, giving him and hug, kiss, and waving as he drove off for work.
I was in the driveway on my red bike, along with my Cocker Spaniel named Pedro.
I looked up towards the North and saw a huge black blimp looking thing moving from East to West over our house and moving over the apple/cherry trees that we shared with a long distance cousin next door who we called Cousin Odell.
It was moving at a slow pace and as I stared at this huge black thing.
It slowed down and hovered over the orchard trees and just stayed there.
Pedro and I moved closer towards it and Pedro was barking at it when his tail tucked, ears went back and he ran up on the breezeway and sat down.
I was so intrigued by this gigantic balloon and I just stood there in awe.
I stared at it for the longest time.
I then heard a faint humming sound.
When it made this humming sound I saw these tiny red lights like dots around the belly of this balloon.
And because it hovered so long, and then made this humming noise, I dropped everything and ran into the house to tell my mom to come outside and see this big gigantic and huge black balloon.
She finally adhered as I grabbed her hand and led her outside.
Only to find that this gigantic balloon was gone.
I tried to explain the big balloon to her, that was it, nothing else.
Nor have I seen it again.
Whether my mom mentioned it to anyone else or whether other phenomenon was reported, I couldn't tell you.
I was very young at the time.
Although I looked for it incessantly until I was in my teens and thought nothing of it until one day, when I saw a report on TV about UFOs and saw a picture of what this person had seen, and wala.
There it was, exactly the same thing I saw.
It was shaped just like a huge gigantic black cigar.
It was black, kind of like the Goodyear blimp without the tail.
This object is still vivid in my mind today.
I wanted to share this with you because looking in retrospect, I definitely saw a UFO!
