Message: I was sitting on my deck on the night of Friday, August 10, 2007, at approximately 10:15 p.m., talking on the phone with a friend who lives in San Angelo, Texas. I live near Tyler, Texas.
I noticed pinpoints of light, similar in size to the stars, moving in irregular patterns; some faster than others. This was not the first time I have seen these lights, but it was the first time that my husband was home. I called him to come outside.
I told my friend to look to the east/northeast sky so she could see them, too. Though I could not measure distance, it was apparent these pinpoints of light were not within our atmosphere. My husband came out to look, he saw one and then went back inside. My friend and I, however, continued to watch. One of the lights would appear in one place, track slowly and irregularly off in a northeasterly direction and seemingly disappear. After a few minutes, it would reappear in the same ‘starting’ spot and track off in a slightly different direction.
After about 10 minutes, there was a very bright flash and about a second later, one of the pinpoint lights was going very rapidly across the sky from the direction of the bright flash as its starting point. After the fast one flew its course, another and then another of the slower ones appeared; one seemed to make some kind of turn because the light of it intensified about 10 times briefly before it turned again and became the ‘normal’ amount of light.
My friend made a sound of surprise and said “Did you see that?!” I told her I didn’t see anything different and she said “No, it’s something huge and it looked like it let out a pink cloud-looking stuff like an emission system or something.” We continued to watch the pinpoints of light move. The most I saw at one time was 4 or 5. About 5 minutes after my friend’s exclamation, something HUGE passed overhead. I cannot accurately measure the distance of it, I can say that it was flying lower than the airplanes fly.
It appeared to be a very dark grey color and, had someone not been watching, it likely would have passed completely undetected. It made no sound at all. it showed no lights that I could see. The shape of it is difficult to describe, but it was somewhat the shape of a boomerang; more accurately (and this is the only way I can accurately describe it), imagine that you are looking up watching a hawk on a wind current. Remove the head of the hawk and all portions of the body below the wings: that is what this huge thing looked like.
If I am anywhere close to judging the size of it, based on how close it appeared it might be, I would say it that each side had to have been about the length of a football field.
It was though it was just gliding through the air. As I said, no sound at all. There were no lights showing, either. When I described it to my friend on the phone, she said that was exactly the large thing she had seen that had emitted the pink “cloud.”
I don’t know what any of that was. As I said, it is not the first time that I’ve watch the pinpoints of light move randomly and slowly. It was however, the first time I had seen the huge thing.
I would be interested in knowing if anyone else saw anything last night, 8.10.07 between approximately 10:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and possibly knows what it is that the pinpoint lights I’ve been watching for quite I’ve been seeing
