Duration:35 minutes
Bright white cigar shaped object hovering in Western sky for 35 minutes

At approximately 4:10 this afternoon, 3-20-08, as I was going to my car, I looked up and saw a bright, white cigar shaped object in the sky to the west. It appeared to be hovering but was moving slightly vertically, and horizontally. I watched it for 5 minutes, and then called my neighbor to witness what I saw. She saw it as well, and said I should report it. I called 911 and they connected me to the UFO Center. I reported the incident to Mr Peter Davenport, who asked that I write this narrative. I also reported it to WFAA TV...the ABC Affiliate in Dallas. They said no other sightings had been reported to them.

While still viewing the object after 10 minutes, other American aircraft were flying around, over, and beneath the object. The American aircraft appeared to be military jets because there were smoke trails coming from the back of the crafts. There were also domestic aircraft flying which looked MUCH smaller than the UFO, and I assume they were flying their regular routes.

I went inside to get my binoculars...and through them I could see the object much better. There appeared to be an orange color on the bottom of the craft. I called my mother, who lives 6 miles away from me, and she saw the disc as well. I have enclosed pictures of the craft. I cropped 1 of the pictures...and I left the other 2 photos untouched, so the tree line would be visible. The object had been visible for 35 minutes when I got into my car and left.

I came back home around 7:00 PM, but the object was no longer visible.
