Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The Disc shaped air craft was completely dark blue/gray to light black in color. Scrolling red and green lights spinning around the diameter of the craft. There was a dome in the center of the disc.
Size of Object(s)
The craft was extremely massive and close as I would have had to cover my eyes to block it from view. The elementary school was about 100 feet across and 6 stories high.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Typical city neighborhood. View of the elementary school was unobstructed as it was surrounded by a large school yard. This is a Queens neighborhood. I believe the Brooklyn Navy Yard was in operation at the time but that was located about a half dozen miles away.
Full Description & Details
Family returning from an afternoon at the cousins. It was evening not quite pitch black. The street lights had not turned on yet. Walking along Seneca Ave. towards Woodbine st. As we were crossing the street noticed this massive object hovering over the elementary school located on Cypress ave which was a street block away. It had blended in with the color of the evening sky.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
The only thing plausible that would make an earthly sense would be a dirigible/blimp. But I would have been to young to know if any were possible to be in operation and in the vicinity at the time.

Too busy as a working adult.Only after I retired did I start reminiscing on my childhood when I remembered this incident. Today my feeling are different. I have grown to learn that the odds are getting smaller and smaller for humans to not be alone in this universe/s...
Space exploration is important for the future existence of mankind. There is only so much room on this planet. The human population keeps on growing with no end in sight. One day we are going to have to make a decision. Reduce the population or get on out there and find more places to live. If there are other forms of intelligent life besides us they must be thinking the same thing. They also may be just one step ahead of us. Those visits to our planet could be an "Oops.! Let's move on. Some one's living here! "or "Hey.. Pay dirt. Just found a new food supply!"
