Posted: 2/14/2010
Location: Trinity and Riverside (between), TX
Shape: Disk
Duration:60 seconds
Disc-like aircraft hovering 100 yards above empty highway at 3:45 a.m. in N.E. Texas

I was driving my vehicle east on Hwy 19 leaving Riverside, Tx traveling towards Trinity, Tx. I approached an aircraft approx. 200 yards ahead and 100 yards up in the sky. It had a flashing green light on right bottom side, and a flashing red light on left bottom side. Just a few feet apart from each other. As i approached i slowed my speed, and the red flashing light disappeared. I started to drive underneath it as it silently hovered above. I started to swerve my vehicle as i looked up, it was not very far above me whatsoever.

Another vehicle was approaching the aircraft on the opposite side of the 4-lane highway with a grassy median, and slowed down considerably as i assume they noticed as well. By this time i reached and grabbed my phone and called a friend to describe what was going on. There was a cross-over in the highway as i turned around to go back and get a better look it started gliding away over the tree tops. I saw it in the distance as I headed back west toward Riverside, both green and red lights flashing. Finally disappearing into the night.

It's shape was disc-like and completly blacked-out other then the flashing lights. Completly silent as i am prior-military and have been around many air-craft. I was in Kandahar, Afghanistan working night-shift on the air-field and have never seen a vehicle sit so still and quiet. Other then the visible flashing lights.
