Sighting Details

I lost sight a few times because of trees but kept a steady eye have always been interested in the stars planets ect. and knew that there wasn't supposed to be a star in the middle of the big dipper very small at first but as we where going thru the mountains began to grow larger in diameter when we were on the flats i convinced my dad to pull over and check it out my father was a amatuer fotoghafer(mis spelled)should have spell check on this when we stopped got out my father , grandmother , brother and me saw in the middle of the big dipper a white glowing light the size was unbelievable if you wre to say that the dipper was 4"by 4" rectangle this disc of light was 2.5"in diameter huge when a black dot appeared in the center and litteralry hundreds of smaller craft came out and went in ever direction including one that went right over our heads my grand mother at that time was almost 80 dove into the car which was 1957 chevrolet which she bought new let out a big scared the crap out her in about 30 minutes all those craft went back into there main ship the black hole disapeared and that huge disc started to get smaller at about the same speed that it got bigger I concluded from this that it came from out side our atmosphere and continuted on the saME heading into our atmosphere the ufo that passed over us at an alttutuded of aprox. 200ft. was egg shaped and approx. 3o ft. from front to back it was very fast at that time I was into cars and racing a lot this craft was traveling at about 1000 miles per hr. est. my das name is Virgil daniel hopkins granmother francis hopkins brother ronald dean hopkins my name Daniel wayne hopkins my dad took pictures from 4 different cameras he was a truck driver for a living use to (as it was called sleeping over the wheel)couple hours sleep keep going we woke up the next morning several miles away everybody sound asleep all film was black when tried to develope it was light out side when we woke remember this started no later than 10 at night the night before I would like to no if any other reportings happened around that time sorry it took so long don't care about crazy this happened wasn't us!!! 4
