Full Description & Details

I know that it was not a craft or manned or alien spacecraft but it was a rare and amazing site.

At franklin field in Dorchester as I was playing basketball, I noticed an object coming from a distance and I stood with a friend watching and as it came closer I can only describe it as being like a " flying meatball" - it was perfectly round and brownish in color, covered in craters and sort of melting and sizzling as it came almost directly above us. It is 47 years later and I can still imagine it and still can remember that sizzling sound it made and the sparks that came off of it of red and green. It was slow and not very high and I had to pinch myself to know i was not dreaming. Another young boy came over to us and said he was going to go after it but we never saw him again after that. I never heard anything about it after that but I know it has to be a very rare sight and I know I will most likely in my lifetime never see anything like that again.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Like I mentioned this was a meteor or an astroind perhaps but this was a very slow descend unlike shooting stars.

Witness Background

I am a pretty normal person, very queit and shy and believe in doing what is right and never breaking the law. I am a lab technition working with human tissue cells. I am not a religious person and I find it hard to believe in things unless there is positive proof for the most part.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I really don't believe anything is entering our planet from another world but if something is proven otherwise I guess I will not be surprised.

Other Comments

Prior to 1966 it may of been in 1965 I happened to look up in the sky and above me I can see an object pole out from the clouds and take a funny turn and another odd turn and then move back up into the clouds and never seen again. I was 11 years old and I just kind of dismissed it as a small plane but I never saw one manuver like that since that incident I don't know what to make of it....
