Reported: 1/18/2006 7:52:03 PM 19:52
Posted: 2/14/2006
Location: Baytown, TX
Shape: Cigar
Duration:2 +hours
In support of sightings 7/15/66 & 6/15/68 in Galveston & Pasadena Texas

In support of the report made for this date in Pasadena Texas, I & several of my family lived on Burnett Bay which is north of Pasadena and under the approach for Ellington AFB. My uncle was a F-102 pilot in the 111th / 147th ANG unit at Ellington. Shortly after dark on the evening of the 15th my uncle was scrambeled by the guard unit.

Shortly after he left we all noticed a cigar shaped object directly over the Bay which was hovering at about 5,000 ft. with flames coming out of one end. It was stationary and stayed in place for several hours.

During this time we witnessed the scrambeled F-102's (there were no F-104's or F-106's at Ellington as reproted in other reports) from the ANG circle the object and they stayed on station unil running low on fuel and returning to Ellington, some 15 miles to the south.

When my uncle returned he was clearly upset about what he had seen but refused to talk about it. I have quizzed him over the years as to what he saw up close that evening but being a retired Air Force Colonel, he still refused to discuss it or the incercept of the UFO he saw on 7/15/66 near Galveston Texas.

He did tell me one story concerning his attachment to Patton's command at the end of WWII. He said he saw flying objects in bunkers in Germany that he has never seen in any book of any publiciation since!
