I know this is not a ghost story - but it is a very weird story and I think you will like it.
The year was 1976 I was 11 years old at the time. My sister and I were out for summer vacation and we got to stay up late and watch TV with our Mom (My Dad worked nights). My mother and I were night owls (I still am) but my sister could not hang and went on to bed.
The house that we lived in at that time was a modest home and located in a very good neighborhood. Our TV sat below the (small) windows that went across the whole back wall. Anyway, Mom and I were watching T.V. - when we noticed a bunch of lights that were flickering on what we thought was a plane. My mom said what in the world is a plane doing in the neighborhood. This so called plane was landing right behind the house across the street - but there was no noise. My mom turned out the lights and TV and we stood there watching this thing land - when it finally disappeared completely behind our neighbors house - we commented on how weird that was and decided to go on to bed.
The next morning there was a knock on our door and my friend who lived in that house across the street asked if I could come over that she wanted to show me something. I got dressed and went over to her house. Lucy (not her real name) said that something weird had happen and she wanted to show me her backyard. We went back there and it looked like a fire had happen - every tree, plant, doghouse and our clubhouse was flattened and burned. The weird part about it was that it was in a perfect circle - everything outside the circle was not burned - it was all untouched and perfect. I told Lucy what my mom and I had seen the night before. We all came to the conclusion that it was an U.F.O.
Another time: I was 14 and my sister and I shared a room and bed and we were laying there talking - all of the sudden Bonnie (my sister) said "Did you see that?" I got out of bed and looked out the window and there hovering just above the trees was a silver disk shaped thing. Bonnie and I looked at it for a long time discussing if it was a U.F.O. When it took off - It was like a flash - it was there one minute and then it was gone just like that. My sister and I are sure that it was indeed a U.F.O.
