Sighting Details

It was spring of 1980. I watched tv until the cable had gone off the air. 11pm appx. Everyone had fallen asleep, but I still was not tired. It was storming very badly outside. Lightening, thunder, and heavy rain. I had nothing better to do so I went to bed. The bed was in the bedroom on the second floor next to a window overlooking a field next to the farm house. I layed in bed watching the storm through the window when I noticed that in the field next to the house were spheres of light. There were appx 6-7 of them darting back and forth across this field in every direction possible. I had never seen anything like it before or since. These objects were appx 4 ft in diameter. Moving like pinballs in a pinball machine from one end of the field to the other. Once reaching the border of the field they bounced back changing direction then darting in a new direction until it reached the border again. I was 11 yrs old and I was amazed by what I was seeing. So much so that I tried to wake others to witness this event. I was unsuccessful at waking anyone. I could not wake anyone no matter how hard I tried. I eventually fell asleep watching the spheres in the field. I assumed it was a natural event and did no investigation the next morning in the field. I wish I would have now but I was 11 and didnt no any better. Plus, I just figured it was something explainable. We left grams that day and went back home to st. joseph, mo. On that monday upon returning to school, I asked my science teacher about what I witnessed and he pretty much treated me as if I were lying about it. I knew right then that it was not a natural event that took place that night in leavenworth,ks. Im 45 yrs old now and over the years I have read and taken interest into the ufo phenomenon. I have never heard or read any other stories similar to mine. Are there others who have witnessed such an event? What did I see? Was it a natural phenomenon? Or other worldly? I would really like to hear other stories similar to this or at least a theory of what it was that I saw.
