In the summer of 1968 at the age of 10 we lived in a rural area of Lakeland Florida. My mother and I were walking home from a neighbors house when an metalic disc shaped object came up on our right from the nearby wooded area at the end of our road. Before it got to us I noticed a dome shape on top it was moving very slow with no sound what so ever. as it got overhead it stopped we both looked up and saw a lighted circular bottom where lights rotated with different colors. As it hovered a yellowish, orange light shined down on me and my mother. It remained overhead for what seemed like an eternity, It was proably only a few minutes. It was approximatly 30 to 40 feet in diameter and it had no down blast or heat, and the only sound it made was a low rhythmic oscillating hum like Wha,wha,wha,wha,etc. It was just a few feet higher that the telephone pole that was within 20 feet of us. As my mother and I regained our composure, she screamed for my brother to come see the object. When she did the light went out and the object took off to our left in a blink of an eye. It had disappeared. Ever since that day I have looked up to the sky to see another one but I have never had another encounter.
