Description: I was at school 1969 aged 8, during lunchtime all the children and dinner ladies stopped whatever we were doing and started looking up at a large oblong silver object pointed at one end in had a hard outline not fuzzy and it stayed in the sky for quite a long time 15/20 mins we went back in to our classes and could still see it out of the window eventually it was covered by clouds and disappeared. Later when I got home it was reported on the evening news an expert said it was a strip of wet road beamed into the sky!
I didn't believe this as it had been a clear blue sky and hadn't rained that day. They said hundreds of people had reported seeing it. As I grew up I looked into UFOs but still have no answer to this.
