Location: San Antonio (ranch outside of), TX
Shape: Egg
Duration:15 minutes
Late at night the quietness was invaded by a glowing egg-shape object that made a sound that frightened 500 chickens that were asleep in their hut. Our two horses that were being fed a hand full of surgar by a 16 year old, brayed a shrill, raised on their hind legs, and darted off away from the landing sight of the UFO. This all may sound melodramatic, but that is the way this encounter began.

When all this happened, we spotted the glowing object slowly hovering about 15 feet above the densely planted mesquite, oak, and huisache trees. We heard branches break or a crackling sound as if some were being burned up on contact. When it landed about 60 yards or so from us, the light or glow ceased. However, we heard an earthly sound that shook the ground and vibrated the concrete patio we were standing on. The noise got louder and the thumping vibrations more intense. By coincidence, another 16 year old who was asleep inside the house, woke up, came out to the porch, and said that we all looked as though we had seen a ghost. By that time we were running to the car to get out of there.

We drove five miles away to wake up the game warden who comforted us with a heavy gauge rifle and the words: "if you see or hear anything more, let me know and I'll round up a posse to investigate the area." We stayed up till sunrise before we got any sleep. We walked out to the area where we thought the landing sight was and found broken and/or scorched branches spewn about as if something big and round wafted into the area.

When one of us went to the store, we overheard a couple taliking to the keeper who heard them say they saw an egg-shaped UFO high up in the sky....
