Well 'feinman,' I saw this type of UFO's for real when I was about six years old. I remember well what it looked like, and the size of it too.Yes it does! Good point. When I first saw it I thought it might be some kind of model about two feet wide. The direction of the light doesn't allow it to cast a visible shadow, too, as is mentioned in article. It certainly looks like a particular type of UFO, so if it is a model it is not a bad one.
The one I observed at that age was witnessed by a youngish couple coming home from their night out (was about 11-12 O'clock at night - they were larking about a bit. As they turned the corner which was the top end of an alleyway, they spotted the ufo that I was looking at and they froze to the spot for a moment, then they both freaked out.
The woman ran to the nearby telephone box calling her mother and shouted down the phone about what they were both seeing, the man was beside himself out on the road. Being so young I just observed what I was seeing.
The ufo floated with a very slight humming noise right over our house, and just hovered just slightly above roof top height over another house just a little down the road. It was lit up around it's edge with multi-coloured what looked like windows, and it had a pointy top but no-where near as much as the one in the photo as in your previous post. The one I saw, on this occasion, was quite a bit larger - a spherical round-edged disc (much like a child's spinning top), the size of it almost covered the roof-top area of the house it was hovering over - all the time gently wobbling a bit, then it slowly and gradually moved away.
Years later, I looked back to see if there where any reports of it being witnessed by others, but never found anything at that time.
The place was in Bromley (Kent), all I came across was some record of students from Bromley College that reported flags and doors and such like in the sky - the article concluded that they were most probably under the influence of LSD and such like, as that was the time that LSD was on the go.
Pity that I never managed to find the couple who witnessed it, because they must have retold of their encounter with it to their children, or so I would imagine.
