Sighting Details

Just happened to look out back door and saw lights circling. I listened and heard no sound. Went to get our 6.5mm high powered rifle. Being 8 yrs. old and scared I was going to try and bring it down. My dad grabbed the rifle just in time. We watched it till it was out of sight. Thousands of people called the police TV, and radio stations. On the news the next day, they said it was a blimp advertising Merita bread. Why at night when no body could read the ad??The "blimp" was never seen in the daytime.
