What did I see as a child?

First of all, i'm not into this "ufo" thing. As a kid, I was more interested in Marvell comics and making stink bombs than looking for ufo's.
Between 1964 and 1967 I lived in a semi detached house in Reading, England, UK. It was late spring/early summer, warm weather. I was between 7 and 10 years old at the time. I went to bed one night and something woke me up, don't know what. I went to look out of the bedroom window because of being aware of something in the garden below. When I looked out, I could'nt beleive what I was seeing. A classic scaucer shaped disk, lit up on the ground next to the conservatory. Sizewise, it must have been between six and eight feet across. It had a cylindrical base with a seperate top bit and what looked like bubble windows round the top. Classic shape. I thought I was dreaming, so just went back to bed.
In the morning when I awoke, I thought "what a great dream" and rushed downstairs to look in the garden just in case it was'nt a dream after all. When I got there, there was a perfect circle on the grass about six to eight feet in diameter. The grass within this circle was yellow, as if something had been stood on it for a long while and taken the colour out. I called my father and asked him what could have possibly done this overnight. He offered no answer and I never told him of the "dream". This has bugged me most of my life now, not in a bad way, but i'd like to know actually what it was I saw, if anything at all. Has anyone else seen anything like this, ever?

That's very interesting, Johnnyzero.
I have seen very many "interesting" things myself, so your experience doesn't surprise me one bit.
But I am afraid that, after so many years, nobody will be able to answer your question. Have you talked about it with other people from the area (besides your father)?

I've spoken about it to a few people over the years but in most cases it's been ridiculed, or rather, I have been. The discolouration of the grass seems to fade into insignifigance when the mere mention of a "saucer shaped object" comes into play.

I am sorry to hear that.
(Not that I am surprised - not one bit.)

Is there perhaps a database or even a website for the UK where records of such sightings are kept? (Like the ones that the Americans have; don't remember their names, but they are huge databases.)

Because, even if you don't remember the exact year, I am sure you could identify a similar incident if you read about it.

Also... perhaps these posts could trigger someone's memory. ; )

Have you tried posting this on a specifically British forum - like the one that BBC keeps, and others? (Simply because the odds of someone having seen the same phenomenon are much better, of course.)

Hi, I did actually report this when I first got a pc back in 1999. I never heard a thing back. I'll look for a bbc link, I did'nt know any UK sites or forums exist, thanks, Johnny.

Johnny, that sounds very interesting. I did once see three lights in the sky. They looked like stars, only a bit brighter. They were shaped in a triangle, with a wide base though. I haven't seen it since, so i think maybe it was a UFO. It was at night by the way.
Johnny, when you factor in the grass discoloration and the fact that it was there the next morning, i think it's pretty plausible that what you saw was real, not of your imagination. Can't say its a ufo though, probably was though, a small one at that.
