I was part of a group of children going to ECHO Lake to spend the day. We were walking along the dirt road leading to the lake, I was ahead of everyone else, as I came out from the canopy of trees I looked up and saw this object sitting in mid air above the lake. I called to my companions to hurry to come and see it. Before they could come out from the cover of tree, it sounded like a motor started up and the object dipped down, rose up, flew over the trees to the left and disappeared. The object looked like a black ball that had been cut in half, flat across the bottom and dome shaped on top. It was a matte black and had no shine to it. I was only 8 years old and since I was the only one that saw it, I never told anyone about it until I was 50 years old and people started to talk about seeing UFO's.
