Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Chevron
Duration:20 minutes
I was driving home from the Univ. of Houston and was at the light near Foley's warehouse (still in same place) and looked up to my front right and saw four very silver boomerang shaped objects (looked like just two large wings at about a 45-degree angle to each other) and they were moving like fireflys; i.e., in and out very fast and kind of meeting in the middle. I was very entranced by this and they were extremely clear to the naked eye. They did not move sideways, but as stated above. I'm not sure how high they were, but would guess about 3-5 thousand feet up, about the height of a plane at the mid-line of take-off. When I arrived home, my roommates stated that there was something on TV that UFOs were seen by a number of people who had called this in. I told them I saw them, and they said they would not have believed it if I hadn't said that as they were in disbelief. I will never forget it. I haven't seen anything like it before nor since. What was so outstanding to me was not only the shape of the objects, but the beautiful silver look without any glare from the bright sunlight. I had to go on because the light had already changed for a few minutes, and there were a lot of vehicles behind me.
