|I saw a dark object that at times had a triangular appearance. No noise was detected and there were no lights at all.
I was walking the dog about 5:30 PM Wed.., Jan 24th, 2007. The weather was very clear and breezy with some clouds. The sun was beginning to go down in the west.
I saw an object way off in the distance approaching from the north west. It was quite high in the sky and moving slower than a jet plane moves. There were no clouds obscuring my view of the object.
I watched to see if I could see any lights but there were no bright lights or blinking lights. I could see no wings. It was difficult to determine the shape but looked slightly triangular at one point. I thought I could determine some shifting of the shape but I couldn't really tell.
It curved around to the west towards the setting sun. It never varied in altitude, neither going up or down and the speed always remained the same. I wondered if possibly it was a weather balloon but I have seen those before and usually the balloons relect white and this was dark brown.
I wondered about a large bird but it looked too big a bird and it wasn't a flock of birds but a solid object.
I watched this object for about ten to twelve minutes and then had to go inside because of the cold air. It was still in sight when I went in.
Unfortunately I did not have my camera and was the only person outside at the time.
From my vantage point it was high enough in the sky to be way above the two story buildings and trees. The size from where I was was about one eighth of an inch to a quarter of an inch.
We have alot of air traffic in the area because of DFW airport, Lockheed, and what used to be Carswell AFB. It looked as if it was high over the base at one point.
I am familiar with all types of aircrafts and balloons and this looked nothing like anything I have ever seen.
I would really like to know if this was a weather balloon or if any other reports have come in.
