Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
I was returning from doing some star gazing with a new spotter scope I have. I was traveling on Hwy 380 traffic was light. Off to my left, south toward where Lake Dallas is at I noticed a round brite light slowly rising. This area is also has and is used for landing traffic at DFW airport. At first I figured it was just a helicopter no biggy then this light or whatever shot from my left across to my right in mere seconds and nothing travels that fast. I stopped on the shoulder and grabbed some bincluars to see if I could get a better look. It stopped and hovered off in the distance for a few seconds the zoomed away at a forty to forty five degree angle north and was gone with in three seconds. Distance I first saw it was five to seven mile away crossed in front of me two the three miles ahead and again stopped I would say ten miles north then zoom off The area is all rural trees and pasture land. I know military aircraft and this was not one of them I would stay the altitude was 1000 to 1500 feet A few moments later I crossed the Trinty river which empties into lake Dallas and wonder if this was where it had crossed. Now north is another lake, Lake Roberts. Wish I could be more helpful, but it happen so fast!
