Full Description & Details

Our family was relatively new to S.F. and had just bought our first house at 68 Carrizal street (out near the Cow Palace) . I think it was a Sunday. We had just finished dinner and Dad,myself, and my younger brother were in the living room each with different sections of the Sunday paper. Mom was still in the kitchen washing dishes. The kitchen window was over the sink and faced our back yard looking in the direction of Mission street..

Mom excitedly called for all of us to come into the kitchen.. We all gathered at the sink and stared at a huge glowing orange disc, at least twice as big as the Moon. I was just 9 years old going on 10 but was already a self trained plane spotter and knew every plane in the sky by sillouette.

The orange disc remained perfectly stationary for the entire time that we witnessed it, There seemed to be swirling effect to the orange light. All of the time we were watching it, I had the very strong feeling that it was watching me. When it disappeared it seemed to shring like someone letting the air out of a ballon only it was very smooth and linear. It maintained it position the whole time.

The next thing I knew dad was looking at the clock and saying, "You better get to bed, you have school tomorrow". We had not been watching the clock but we were in the habit of eating dinner pretty early. I think we lost from 1 to 3 hours time.

Witness Background
