In the early morning hours of fall/1977,I was coming back from the bathroom to my bedroom, in which I shared with my younger sister. We routinely slept with either the window and/or curtains open because of being on the second floor and no other houses or persons with 2 stories could see in our room. As I came back in my room to get into bed. Looking out (WEST) I spotted a large metallic dome shaped object with lite windows around the bottom half of the dome, hovering over elevated transit tracks(BART)at the end of my block. At that point, I woke my sister and she looked at it through the window and immediately got back under her covers shaking violently in fear, at the same time I continued to watch In amazement the object by peeking over the window sill. It followed the tracks.... very slowly (North)moving along the tracks and when it got the street parallel to mine, it turned down the street in my direction moving... very slowly, saying this to my sister she again shook terribly under her covers. I continued to watch the object until it was parallel to side of my window in the next street over. At that point, It stopped for second and then shot off at incredible/supersonic speed (South/East)over Mt Hamilton. It almost seemed like it imploded? I of course told my sister it was gone and she stopped shaking. Weird, cause I just went to back to bed for maybe an hour or so before getting up for school and mentioned it to my mother and she just blew my off....then said something to my best friend before school and she made fun of me!
Another strange thing is my sister and I didn't talk about the incident until a few years later I mentioned it to her and I could see her fear and not wanting to talk about it. To this day she will acknowledge seeing the object but not much more.
