West side of Corpus Christi UFO

I am 29yr old now and I estimate this even occurred sometime between '88-'89.

My brother and I were inside our house watching t.v. and my dad was out in the front yard smoking a cig one night. My dad opens the front door and yells "LOOK!".

Well my bro and I run outside and my dad is in the middle of the yard staring at the sky. We look up and there is this round object flying extremely low and what seemed slow...so low its scary..but yet we dont say a word to each other nor do we run away...we can't help but just stand there in awe and stare as this object is about to fly over our heads...its the size of a house and it has small white round lights around the perimeter.

It is not making a sound and its about 10pm so no one is outside yelling or making a commotion..matter of fact, if you werent looking in the sky it would have flown right over your head without you ever knowing. It flew directly over our head and now that im older i can say that it was probably about 300ft. above us...it cleared some power lines but was so low i remember thinking to my self "its gonna hit the power lines".

It also flew what i would consider slow...about 30mph. I know SOMEONE else HAD to have seen it around the area as we live in a residential neighborhood in the city.

We didnt have a camcorder or camera back then and i know that now thats the first thing i would grab if i ever saw it again. I remember telling everyone but back then no one seemed to care so i just kinda buried the memories and it was begining to feel like i dreamt that night because i dont talk to my dad anymore and my bro never brought it up but my wife asked me if i ever thought i'd seen a ufo so i asked my bro if he remembered that night and he confirms my story.

His account is exactly the same except he says he remembers shortly afterwards black helicopters were flying around the area because my dad pointed them out (he was a helicopter mechanic back then). My bro is 3 years younger so i guess i would have been about 10 or 11 and he was! 7 or 8 when this happened.

Oh yeah...i know the object was round because when it flew over us, you could see this massive round black silouette in the dark sky and the perimeter lights were not beams but rather dull yellow white lights.

IF ANYONE REMEMBERS SEEING SOMETHING SIMILAR PLEASE POST! this occured in the 80's on the west side of corpus christi near prescott and gollihar.
