UFO Story

The first UFO I have seen was when I was 7 years old about 1955, I was at a boarding school in Westchester NY called Graham School, and this school overlooks the Hudson River and is very near Hastings NY. I was coming out of the front of the main building which over looks a field, after watching a movie that started at about 6PM and was over about 7:30.

I had an escort with me he was older and had to watch over me because of my age. I stood on the front steps and saw a small crowd of about 10 older boys in a circle in the middle of the field. I said to my escort what are they doing down there? and he said lets go see, So we walk over to them.

I saw them all looking up in the sky so I asked what are you all looking at?, and was told to look up, and there it was, a large black disk with about 12 or so different colored lights spinning slowly in a clock wise direction it made no sound. I could not see the sky for at lest fifty feet in any direction the disk like object seemed to be about fifty feet above us. We all stirred at the object for what seemed to be 1 or 2 minutes. Then the disk shaped object went straight up and zig zaged to the west and out of sight in about 2 seconds. We all were amazed at the speed at which this disk accelerated.

For some reason nothing was said among the group after the object left, we all just dispersed and I went back to my cottage with the older boy that was escort. I was met by the Den Mother who then asked my escort why are you coming in so late. We seemed to be the only ones up and the whole cottage was dark and everyone was asleep. Everyone in the house was to be in bed at 9 PM or 10 for the older boys at the latest. The movie was only an hour or so.? For some reason nothing was said about the black disk. I never mentioned it to anyone until I was in my twenties?

I would like to find the others who witnessed this event in 1955 or 56 is there a web site that I can post this story on??? Please advise.

I have always felt that there was some lost time and I would one day like to go through a regress hypnosis season to find out what really happened that night, from 7:30 PM until maybe 9 or 10 PM.
