Location: Spicewood, TX
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:3 minutes
Saw cylinder shaped object with lights that disappeared abruptly.

I was inside looking out at the evening sky when I noticed a bright "cylinder" shaped object moving slowly from east to west coming in the direction of my house.

At first I thought it was a chopper, as we have many flying over our house on Lake Travis. As I watched it come closer, I noticed that it seemed to have many lights in a "clump", with other lights below it; a little hard to explain. I also noticed that it was moving in a starting and stopping pattern, rather than smooth. It did stay on the same course. I turned my head to knock on the window,so that my husband could come out and seeit; when I looked back up, it was gone.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at some length, and we found her to be quite credible. We note that satellites that do not have a western component to their groundtrack. PD))
