I saw something similar last week while out walking the dog just after dusk. It was located in the southern sky way off in the distance of Parker County. Generally we can see the lights of planes flying in the south and east probably to Mecham or even DFW. However, this object was stationary in the sky about tree top level (what ever degree that might be) and as I said...way off in the distance. It had an orange-red glow. Seemed odd to me at the time, but I figured I would find someone who would mention it on the some of the internet sites I frequent just telling me that it was some planet. Hmmm...

ON TOPIC:

On page 5 of this thread, I posted a link to a somewhat similar event that occurred BACK IN MARCH of this year. The main exception. The flatbed truck contained an "object" covered by a blue tarp. The similarities = late night, highway closed, police escort, Texas.

Quote from OP in THAT thread:

We were driving south on US Highway 287. In between Interstate-20 and about the Walnut Creek exit. Headed south into some very rural parts of Texas.


I am reposting to clarify. I am reluctant to post THAT link again, because some posters went there, posted and thought it was THIS event despite date.


I am wondering if there might be some pattern or a routine route of transport? It might help shed some light or connect the dots. My schedule precludes me from further research but I find this event quite remarkable.

BTW, Interstate-20 (THIS EVENT) AND Highway 287 (MARCH EVENT) are in close proximity near Mansfield, Texas.

The OP provided 2 photos and 2 videos. You can find link on Pg 5.

Looking forward to ANY future updates.

Regards. . . KK

Hmm currently in that area. Booms are common with thunderstorms in the area. Was not aware of such an event.

Thanks for posting this information. I live not too far from there and in the area all my life but know of nothing down 287 that might be affiliated with aircraft.

You have brought up a good line of thought to follow.

Something I remembered now, can anyone identify if the truck and escort are military or not?

Also, if this was a military operation, would they need a police escort or a military escort would have the same "value"?

Well think about it this way. How the H377 would they explain a bunch of military vehicles escorting a flatbed truck with a disc on the back in the middle of a normally busy but then cordoned off interstate highway?

Police would be more practical in this case.

"The events on I-80 where the result of a training exercise involving tactical training with military vehicles. The object in question was a ball of swamp gas created by a Humvee."

I don't see how they could explain military vehicles. That would have drawn a ton more attention.

Do they have to explain anything?

Maybe (I don't know how things work), but also more likely to have "leaks", after all the police is not under military orders (or are they?)


"The events on I-80 where the result of a training exercise involving tactical training with military vehicles. The object in question was a ball of swamp gas created by a Humvee."
I thought it would be more like "The events on I-80 where the result of a training exercise involving tactical training with military vehicles. The object in question was part of a special built instalation needed for the exercices."
Nothing really explained, enough said to keep the people that accept the official explanations happy.


I don't see how they could explain military vehicles. That would have drawn a ton more attention.
Aren't there any movements of military vehicles on the roads?

Statistically (not all mind you) police officers in the US are generally ex military. However they are under government employment. Personally I think most (if not all) police officers would keep their mouth shut to save their pension. How else are they supposed to eventually retire?

Yes, but not escorting a truck carrying a saucer and not on a cordoned off highway. ArMap you are extremely smart! I'm sure I don't have to tell you how that could be viewed as suspicious.

Statistically what?
Statistically a LARGE percentage? Says who?

I DO NOT accept that statement without data. Sorry, I don't mean to be contrary, but that just seems like a vague assumption without proof if you consider the motto of this site.

Well if you can believe any of this...............


It was being followed by what looked like miltary and police.



Police escorts were forcing people to exit and shutting down ramps getting onto the highway.



A man called the local radio station 97.9 the Beat, claiming that he took the pics and there were several government cars following the flatbed which was carrying the massive UFO.



Many people have even stated that they believe this could be a prop. Okay... maybe. BUT... props are typically moved in stages, and are not guarded by unmarked black Tahoes and Hummers accompanied by Dallas Police Department.

Sorry about that. I did some digging and found a lot of hearsay on the subject, but I did manage to find a PDF concerning this.

You see, things in Portugal are very different.

Here, police is completely civilian, and I never knew of any case of an ex-military going to the police. They are also under government employment but they are under a different minister, police and armed forces are (and as far as I know, although I may be wrong, they always were) separated and they do not have any real special relation, police-men are always considered civilians.

Also, although not as much as they want, they can get their pension because all people that worked (and made the related social security payments) for more than 15 years can get their pension when they reach 65 years of age (or sooner, but there are some restrictions), and civil servants (like the police) can have their pension (a different pension) with at least 5 years of service and payments (to a different social security system), so they do not have to fear to loose their pension for doing something that was considered against the rules.

If they go against the rules they are punished, but they do not loose their rights (nobody looses their rights in Portugal, even convicts keep most of their rights).

And here in Portugal it's not uncommon to see military convoys near or between bases, so a military convoy including a military truck would not be suspicious (only the cargo could look suspicious).

And I didn't saw anything on the photos that showed the highway to be cordoned off, from what I have seen the car was on the centre lane while the truck was on the left lane, and both were moving.

PS: as an example of separation between police and armed forces, at the time of Carnation Revolution, the armed forces made the revolution, the police kept almost completely aside, the paramilitary police (Republican National Guard) and the political police kept on the side of the government.

PPS: sorry for the lengthy explanation, but I think it helps to understand why sometimes my views are not exactly what would be expected from an US perspective.

No worries DaMod. We are on the same quest.

Ya know. I've been thinking.

Just North of Texas and I-20 is New Mexico. Among other points of interest there, White Sands, Los Almos and dare I say.....Roswell.

Do we know which direction ( East or West) they were headed? It seems the most basic sighting info is difficult to glean.

BTW, in the comments section of another site, one poster identified them as huge "valves." Could be something mundane.

Nearby Attractions

Haven't checked other Military/ Air base angles yet.

Just sayin'.

Yeah, different people do things differently it seems.

Good luck keeping your rights here.

Hi,
new guy here. I spent a few hours using the Google maps Street View feature trying to find the location in the photos. It looks to me this location is I-20 east bound just west of the Matlock Rd. intersection/overpass. There are only 2 other locations that I could find where they used the double light fixture poles in the median but the Matlock Rd locations light spacing is more consistant with the photo. I deduced the east bound side because of the absence of grass between the inside emergency lane and the concrete barrier in the meadian. I noticed there is a huge car lot on the south side of the interstate here. I wunder if they have security cameras that might have cought something. BTW, I searched from due south of Dallas to due south of Ft Worth on I-20

Nice work. First star from me. I had been searching for any mundane reasons why these objects might have been openly transported. There was a 4th of July UFO festival in Roswell but doesn't seem likely they would wait a month for transport. ( As per your conclusion they were heading East or away from there.)

Funny side note. The musical guest at the festival was "Jefferson Starship"

I'll keep searching. This incident is intriguing to say the least. Keep up the excellent work.

I'm not sure about the flatbed carrying whatever blurry object that is (seriously, even within 50 feet the disks are still blurry??) but reading the reports of the booms and lights, the first thing I thought of was a time that happened to me, while I was in the navy at Pearl Harbor. Big, loud booms, flashes of light and a lot of emergency vehicles.

Turned out it was a blown transformer.

I remember seeing the pics of the flatbed in a thread a while back, and while it's odd that the two occurred the same night (if they actually did, that picture could be from any time and twittered on that day) then I'd still call it a coincidence.

Actual alien craft on a flatbed with a massive escort of mysterious black vehicles and they didn't have fifty bucks to go to Wal-Mart and buy a tarp? I can't really buy that. I think whatever the object in that blurry picture is, it's something much less exciting.

I heard the noise and saw light that was similar to lighting. I am south
of I-20 and a couple miles east of the intersection of state highway 287.

The sound and light seemed to be comming from the intersection others
have mentioned.
