Out of this world

In the summer of 1983 we were camping at Boca Lake and a UFO came over the mountain. This was observed by my parents and 10 of their friends, plus my good friend Michael. The campsite was full also. There’s no telling how many other people had seen it. You could not miss it. It was a couple of hundred yards wide, at least. It flew over the bare mountain across the river that led to the lake. It dwarfed the small mountain range it came over. It was round and massive, white light all around the outside. I flew directly over our camp. The bottom of it had triangular shaped lights lights all over the bottom. The triangular lights had rolled edges as if they were individual ships attached to bottom with kind of a black bee hive material. The only sound it made was a humming sound. Another weird thing, no one remembered it until two weeks later,when we started remembering it. I graduated from Truckee in 1989. Just wondering if anyone has seen this ship. It made us all believers that’s for sure.
