It was summer 1972 i was 10 years old and 2 friends went for a walk to one of our regular play areas know as the hills.Which is a natural boarder between 2 housing estates. upon climbing the second hill i noticed large black object in the sky a dome shape with 2 cut outs at the bottom. it hovered over the housing estate then it dropped a large box or cylinder shaped object. i desided that 2 of us should run home and get a camera and/or a pair of binoculars but 1 of us should stay to keep an eye on it. when we returned the object had gone. i was frantically bombarding my friend with questions. what happened to it? where did it go? but he had a look of disbelief, like a rabbit caught in the head lights. he said " it just disappeared". but where to i asked. "it just vanished,one minute it was there and then it wasn't" was his reply. none of us was ever the same after that. the friend that ran home with me became a lesbian still acknowledges the sighting the friend that remained grew up as a normal hetrosexual man but denied the event ever took place. and i had a sex change and became a woman. this had stayed with me for 45 years. the 2 of us that ran home. neither of us recall ever running home or returning. i feel that it's possible that we were taken and my friend that remained on the hill was in a state of shock after seeing us being taken.
