Full Description & Details
My sister and I were playing basketball In Ashland during the summer with the neighbor's when we all noticed an object in the sky that I can only describe looking like a very huge sun. The object was above a cornfield on the otherside of Furnas Street and 24th Street .The object stayed for a few minutes and was very large. The object dissapeared and then re-appeared still looking like a "sun" but was further away and had moved north-west. It dissapeared and reappeared one more time and then we never saw it again. It was mid-day so the real sun was just over our heads. My sister and I tried to run inside our house and find the camera to take a picture but had no luck so instead just went back out and watched it till it was gone. I was only 12-13 years old or so, at that age you really question what you see. We did tell our mother who was inside the house at the time but she never came out to see what we were talking about. We never discussed the sight with our neighbors after that day. I do remember what it looked like just like it happened yesterday.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I am an administrative assistant one year of college, moved out of state, got married and baby so never finished
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was very young, had never known much about them. A few years later when I was older I started talking to family and learned more about UFO's and sightings in Ashland. I strongly believe in them and believe in what I saw. I hope someday to see another one.
I would be very interested to know if anyone else had seen this object that day and if the two other boys that witnessed it with my sister and I remember any other details about that day.
