I'm uncertain whether the things I've seen were ETs or not.
c. 1967/68 Camping at the beach with my family, we saw something that looked like colored lightning out over the Gulf of Mexico. We watched for about
a half hour +/- with the people camped near us & one of the constables from Nueces County. He said it wasn't flares & there was no sound like thunder
or fireworks or anything. I want to say it had a "nucleus" or concentrated kind of ball, but I don't know that now. What I really remember is the
way it up the clouds around it & that there were clouds in front of it. All of the flashes were the same color, but I don't remember whether they
were green or red.
c. 1988 driving down 35, between San Marcos, with my mom & (then) fiance, my mom pointed out strange lights off to the west over some farmland. It was
a row of different colored, pale lights that seemed to be "chasing" around a disk(?). We watched it until we passed it. We tried to tell ourselves
it must be a blimp at first, but it was moving too fast for that.
c.1991, when the 1st Gulf War had started, I woke up at 3:19 & for some reason, went straight to our living room window (which faced northeast) &
looked out. There was a huge white light that was low in the sky & looked like it was going to go over our condo- basically, "headed straight for
us". It wasn't very far away & really low.
We lived near the airport & this was perpendicular to the commercial flight pattern & past where it could bank to land (it also looked like if it was
going to the runway for the small planes.
I freaked out & went back to the bedroom & waited for it to go over, thinking maybe it was a helicopter or a small plane but it never did.
c. 2002 I had driven up to Austin one night when I was ticked off at DH & about San Marcos noticed a large gold-ish white light that was almost
directly over 35 in front of me, maybe 3 or 4 light poles high. As I was getting in to Austin, there was some other stuff in the sky- 1 small plane
that crossed over 35 & a helicopter that crossed back & forth near it. The light just hung there, but because of the road, it seemed like it moved. I
turned around & headed back and after a few miles, I noticed that there was an identical light off to the east & in front of me. At one point, it
crossed over 35 and went way to the west, almost even with me, but a little while later, I realized it was back in the place I had seen it to the
east. I don't know if it was the same light or 2 different ones.
In 2004, I was driving down a main street about 10 AM & what looked light a garbage bag in the sky caught my attention. We had a low overcast that day
& it was a little lower than helicopters usually fly. It moved very deliberately & steadily & I realized it wasn't flapping around like a garbage bag
would. Luckily, traffic wasn't heavy but I apparently all but stopped in the middle of the street, because the car behind me went around me. A couple
of blocks ahead, they were pulled over in a gas station- I think watching it too, but by then, it was behind us. It looked kind of like the flying
entity video, but turned on it's side.
March before last, we noticed that there was a very large, bright white light low in the sky to our sw out our patio door. It is a 3 piece door (6' +
sidelight). Judging by the frame on the door, we watched it move very slowly to our right, back a little to the left & then gradually upward until we
couldn't see it anymore. It went on about 40 minutes.
This happened for 3 nights in a row, skipped a night & resumed for 2 more nights. We haven't ever seen it again. BUT
about a month ago, we were on 37 out by Poteet & DH noticed a large white light, really low in the sky, off to our west that didn't seem to be
moving. We watched it all the way home (about 45 minutes). It would look like it was ahead of us, but then we'd look for it again & it would be
About a week after that, we were going home from going to eat & we saw another light like that off the highway. That was in the flight pattern &
several commercial planes crossed above it while we were watching it.
I'm not sure if these are some kind of drones or ufos or what, but all 3 lights were in the same place for too long to be helicopters. If the one in
town had been the police helicopter, it seems like it would have used it's searchlight at least once.
There may have been another time or 2, but these are the times that stick out to me.
