Where did you see the spaceship? What shape was it? What did it look like?

How big was it? How high was it? What was it made of? How fast did it move? What colour was it? What did it sound like? What sort of energy did it use? What was it like inside? What was the temperature like inside? How did you feel when you first saw the aliens? What did they look like? How tall were they? How heavy do you think they were? How did they move? How did you communicate with them? How many of them were there? Where did they come from? How far away is that? How long did it take them to get to Earth? Why had they come to Earth? How long were you on the ship?
