I was down in Texas with my mom and dad.
We were visiting some family relatives.
I was outside in a cotton field playing with some cousins.
The cotton field had no cotton. But the ground was very soft like it had been tilled.
I remember it being soft because it was hard to run fast on it.
Well as we were playing we all saw a huge gold bright and lit up ball floating in the distance.
As it came closer to us and floated overhead, I thought "The Goodyear Blimp!"
We all started running around pointing at it. It was prolly the size of a hot air balloon maybe a little larger.
It was a ball, with hundreds of gold lights all over it. Some turning off and making wired shapes that I thought were letters.
I had watched Monday night Football with my dad as a kid. So I just thought that the gold "bulbs" were just spelling out stuff. But since I didn't
know how to read, I just assumed they were words.
At the time. I didn't even know what a UFO was.
After it flew slowly over us ( it was about 150 feet up) very close.
We all ran inside, all excited that we saw the Goodyear Blimp.
We told our parents that we saw the Goodyear Blimp
My mom and dad were like "really, wow! That's nice"
Of course they didn't take it serious.
This was in 1975.
I didn't really think about it for years.
Until this memory of it just popped into my head.
I was like " whoa! What in the hell was that then?"
I have seen a avatar on here that looks very much like what I saw.
It's a ball with lights.
The avatar I have seen there is a blue one and there is a gold one.
The object I saw looked like the gold one.
