Sighting Details

I was sitting outside in lawn chairs with three friends. This white metallic object came from the south flying low with no sound. My friends jumped up and ran inside, terrified. I walked to the end of the sidewalk and stared at it for a few minutes as it hovered just above the tree top. I was very close to it---no mistaking what I saw. There was no noise. It was white metallic, oval/disc shaped with a window. An inner light shown from this window, but I couldn't really see inside. After a few minutes, I realized my friends were still inside and I was alone out there. I turned to run to the house, and as I did, the ufo flew over the house heading west. It didn't actually turn, that I saw, it just flew off. I ran down the street to tell my parents----I didn't know what to think. They didn't believe me until the next day when a very respected man from the area told them he had also seen a flying saucer the night before, coming from the direction of bluffs and traveling west close to his home about 5 miles away at about the same time. This sighting took place in Sept. 1966. I was almost 12 years old, I am now 59. It has bothered me all of these years, wondering what it was.
