Orange County, Texas, USA; Fall, 1969

Date of Event: fall, 1969

Location of Event: Orange County, Texas

Message: At approximately 4:30 pm, in the fall of 1969, I was riding my horse and heard a roaring noise. This noise resembled a jet airplane. It was a deep rumbling sound. It was growing in volume, and was causing my horse to become agitated some what.

Looking all around, I couldn’t see anything at ground level. Looking to the sky, I saw a disc-shaped object flying from east to west at approximately 2,000 feet altitude.

There was a trail of black smoke coming from the east side of the object, with flames near the disc. I wonder if there was a crash reported in this time frame in the Southeast Texas are, or farther west in Texas?
