Urban residential neighborhood. We had a big backyard with a big pepper tree in the middle.

The garage was connected to the house on the west side corner. We had an alley right behind our house. Our house was a corner lot. We had a view of Mt. Baldy behind our house looking North.
Full Description & Details
One afternoon, I was in the backyard of our Pomona home playing horses with my older sister Christina, (age 10) Patty, (age 8) and my younger brother Ronnie ( age 6). Christina and myself were the horses, while Patty and Ronnie were the farmers. We had a big play house back there and that was the farm house. Christina and myself were over by the garage drinking the water that was falling off the roof from the sprinklers in the front yard when I noticed a big blue ball flying towards us rather fast. I thought it was odd as it was flying in a very straight line. It's direction was from west to east and I saw it in the west sky. I turned and asked my sister Christina if that was a balloon that was coming towards us and before she could answer me, that thing was hovering in the sky right above our pepper tree, which was in the middle of the backyard. It wasn't moving but I remember the bottom part was spinning. It was around 70 feet off of the ground. I heard no noise at all. I remember just standing there looking up at it for a long time and being so amazed at it. I was totally fixated on the huge bolt heads it had around the center. They looked just like the heads of a hex head bolt to me, hexagon shaped I guess. There were also a few panels or sections around the entire thing. It was big, very big. Bigger that a two car garage would be and it was the color of the sky. Round like a ball and a dark blue. I saw my sister Patty come running around from the side of the play house and she also just stood there staring up at it. My Brother Ronnie came running over from behind the clothesline to see. Suddenly Christina screamed ," That's no Balloon, it's a Flying Saucer! " At that point I ran as fast as I could into the house to get our other older brothers and sisters and I didn't look back . I know Patty and Ronnie were right behind me, but Christina stayed there. When the rest of the kids ran out into the backyard to see, the flying saucer was gone and of course none of them believed us. Christina said when we started to run, it flew off faster than a bolt of lighting over Mt. Baldy.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No way. Not in a million years. There was nothing in the skies like that back in the sixties.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I had no views on UFOs at that time. I didn't know anything about them, hadn't heard anything about them, nor had I read anything about them. I was only 7 years old at that time.
All these years no one would ever believe us younger kids. The only ones we could talk about this to was to each other. Two of those witnesses have since passed away and there are only Patty and myself left. I am glad I saw that flying saucer and have been wishing ever since I could see it again. I would not be so scared of it if I did see it again. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen before in my life.
