I was just wondering...if what I saw when I was small was a real UFO. My family was driving along a freeway with trees on both sides (very thick trees since it was a rural area with no lights) in the afternoon since we had just went to the mall which was very far away. Then I had my chin resting on the little spot where the window joined with the car door. I was looking above the trees (we were on the inner lane of a 4 lane highway) and then we were driving along when suddenly I saw a silver disk hovering above the trees, some ways off. It was large or close enough for me to see it was silver and had a shadow on the side of it.(my right side since I was on the right side of the passenger car and we were driving towards the sunset) The sun was setting but cast a glow on the left side of the silver "disk" and reflected off it. I just had my chin resting on the door. Then interestingly I distincly remember it shooting off in the opposite direction of the car and it was EXACTLY like what you see on star trek (it was so fast) and the disapearing act was in the shape of => /\ and it was gone. (the whole event was aproximately 10seconds total from seeing it hover, then the 1 sec it took to disapear)Then I thought about what I had just saw and since I was small I really didn't realize that this wasn't "normal"...and then It clicked and I told my mom what I saw. Quite an odd experience to be sure ...I personally think it's a UFO but I want to see what you people think of it.
