Posted: 2/25/2003
Location: Boerne, TX
Duration:30 sec.
An on-duty security officer at a major hospital went outdoors to patrol the parking lot from 0200 to 0300 hrs.. At about 0215 hrs., he estimates, he saw a peculiar blue light, which he estimated to be about 100 yards from his location. It was visible between two trees.

He jumped out of his truck, ran into the parking lot, and he got a better look at the object. It was a blue light, moving very slowly, approximately 100 feet above the ground. It was moving from his left to right.

The moon was out at the time.

The object moved in front of a cloud, so it was silhouetted against the light colored cloud, at which point the observer could see its shape. It was distinctly square in shape. The observer described the object as looking like a "coffee table (round?) with a smaller rectangular box on top--like a shirt box." Box was about 1/3 the size (diameter?) of the round part.

The object then moved away from him, the observer estimating that it may have moved approximately 1/4 mile in one second. It then hovered for a short period of time, then it streaked toward the observer, coming within 100 feet of his position, this time, and still about 100 feet in the air.

The object then moved to the left, then the right, moving "like a bug in the wind--erratically."

The object flew over the tope of the hospital and disappeared from the observer's sight.
