Enormous UFO Arlington, Texas

Although I have given the date of my sighting as December of 1993, I am unsure of the exact date.

I was driving East on Arkansas Lane in Arlington Texas in early afternoon. As I topped the hill and approached the intersection of Park Springs and Arkansas Lane I saw an enormous oval shaped disk that appeared to be made of highly polished silver, hovering over the City of Grand Prairie, Texas, which is the City to East of Arlington and about 10 miles from the intersection I was approaching. It seemed to me to be about the width of a football field or two and was much larger on the horizon than the Dalworthington Gardens Water tower that came into view as I approached the next traffic light at the corner of Spanish Trail and Arkansas Lane. The strange thing about this sighting is that the UFO appeared to be appearing and disappearing as it sort of wobbled while sitting there in the sky. Although I did not see any airliners at that time, The UFO seemed to be sitting well above the trees that were visible to me and just under a landing flight path to DFW Airport that I generally always see a plane or two making a final approach when I travel East on Arkansas Lane. Sometime before this sighting, I remember hearing about some one or some group trying to project a picture of Christ in the skyline above New York City and at first I thought that because the UFO was appearing and disappearing that perhaps that was happening here also. However, this was in broad daylight. I looked to my left, intending to honk at the white pick up truck to my left and call the driver's attention to what ever this was. However when I looked at the driver, I could see that the gentleman driving the truck had his mouth open and was looking at the same sight I was seeing.

I continued down Arkinsas Lane and the UFO continued to hover and appear and disappear until I reached the intersection of Bowen Rd. and Arkansas Lane. Then the UFO disappeared and never appeared again.

The next day, I was again in my car listening to either the local Classical or Oldies but Goodies Radio station, when the announcer made the following addition to a short news break, "All you people in Arlington, who called in to report what you thought was a UFO yesterday were actually seeing a weather baloon." I was not one of those people who called in, but I do know that what I saw was no weather baloon. At the time of my sighting, I did not have a computer. Two years later when I did purchase one, I began a search that continues today for someone, anyone who saw this same UFO I am unsure of the date and even the exact year, but I know that others must have seen it and either called the authorities or a radio a station to report it.
