It was a late thursday night. my dad was going to take the trash out. i was only 8 at the time so i went with him because i was scared to stay in the house alone (i was 8). So hes taking the trash down to the curb and i look up and see this object with flasing colorful lights. i was amazed. i didnt see it for very long. maybe 15 secs. it was way up the street and very close to the ground maybe just 100 feet above the houses. my street is a hill so as this thing was moving up, the houses got in the way. i remmber wanting to run after it but i was scared. by the time the UFO wasn't in site my dad was finished with the garbage. i told him about it walking back to the house but he didnt belive me. so i just went on with my night as usual.
