Appearance / Description of Object(s)
It was round like a perfect circle. It was close to us, So it was about the size of my house, or 2 7-11 stores. (I'm not good at math, sorry) It was silver. I only saw the bottom of it. It had lights that were ambient, or occluded from view. They were blinking and if I remember right they were blue and white. It had some panelling near the lights meaning it was not just silver and lights but honestly I can't exactly remember the panelling well. It had perfect movement and incredible speed. Apparently we were the only people to see the thing, other than the helicopter pilots.

Full Description & Details
t was christmas eve 1980 and I was a ten year old boy. My mom had to do some very very last minute shopping at the Northgate Mall in Terra Linda. We shopped until the mall closed at 11:00 pm. That is the time all the doors closed. We left the Mall around 11:05. So we took the Los Ranchitos Road to drive back to Santa Venetia. So about 2 minutes later my mom all of a sudden started freaking out. She was panicking and saying to me, "Did you see that? Oh my god! Conan! What is that? I said, "See what?" ..."Where?" I did not see anything around. I looked over at my mom and for some reason she was looking out of the driver's side window, but looking up, at the sky. So I rolled down the window and looked directly up. What I was about to see was an incredible and unbelievable sight. I saw a flying disc shaped U.F.O. I could not believe my eyes. It was right there, just sort of hanging in the sky. It was moving at a slow speed. Obviously my mom, thank God, had stopped the car to view it. I could not believe how my mother even saw this thing in the first place, because it was so dark out. It was not making any sound that I could hear. It was also not hovering like a helicopter or a boat in water. It was moving perfect, approximately about 1/2-1 a mile an hour. It was about 35-40 feet directly above our car, a blue chevrolet. I looked at this thing and said, "WOOOOOOOOW!!!! COOOL!"
