      It was a lazy hot summer's day 
in Springfield, Illinois. Mid afternoon, 
July of 1972 is my best guess. Riding in 
circles out on the asphalt paved tree 
lined Lincoln Avenue.

I was a twelve year old boy giving a chubby 
eight year old boy a ride on my bananna seat 
bicycle out in front of our houses.  While 
stuggling to keep the bicycle balanced.  I 
heard a loud buzzing sound. I tasted a 
metallic taste within my mouth, and the scent 
of burning hair filled my nostrils.

A very intense voice from "within" my head 
said "lookup" -- which I immediately did.
Just above the trees, directly overhead, 
hovered a large metallic copperish colored 
disk.  The disk was wrapped in a fiery veneer 
of translucent plasma.  I would estimate it 
was the size of small house. 
I began to loose my balance on the bicycle 
and had to look down to regain it.  I looked 
up again and it had moved off to the north.  
I lost sight of it in seconds.
I was filled with a desire for sleep, which 
I fought.

I stopped the bicycle, got off and asked my 
friend, "Did you just see what I saw?"  His 
eyes grew wide as quarters and he shook his 
head up and down in the affirmative.

I ran inside and told my mother -- years later 
she confirmed that I had come inside one day 
"frightend" and claiming to have just seen 
something like a flying saucer in the sky.

The sighting became important later when I had 
another experience.  And then another.
