Duration:15 MIN
APRX.20,000 FT I THOUGHT IT WAS A JET BUT WHEN THE SUN SHINED ON IT IT WAS A LONG SHINNY SHAPE WITH A POINT AT THE FRONT,A LARGE GLOW AT THE REAR WITH SMOKE EXITING A SHORT DISTANCE.GOING ALL MOST STRAIT UP.IT LOOKED AT THIS POINT LIKE A ROCKET (ICBM)

SHAPE AS STATED ABOVE,IT WAS VERY HIGH .BUT CLEAR ENOUGH TO SEE AFTER THE SUN WAS REFLECTING ON IT THAT IT HAD NO WINGS.WHAT STOOD OUT THE MOST WAS THE GLOW ON THE BACK JUST LIKE THE ROCKETS WHEN THEY SHOW THEM ON TV.ALSO 20 YEARS AGO I AND OTHER PEOPLE SAW A SMALL TRIANGLE CRAFT ONLY 150 -200FT OVER THE GROUND.IT WAS SEEN OVER A 3 NITE PERIOD.IT WOULD PLAY CAT AND MOUSE GAMES WITH US,WE WOULD SEE IT EACH NITE FOR ABOUT 1 1/2 HOURS EACH OF THOSE NITES.I NEVER SAW IT AGAIN.IT TOO WAS IN THIS SAME AREA OF TEXAS
