My location: N30d28’50.3 W97d38’52 Facing ESE

I was on my back porch smoking a cigarette and looking at the moon. I was not wearing glasses nor could I explain what I saw by finding any reflective surfaces within the field of view.

Three lights, a little larger than a star appears, appeared to the left of the moon (about 3 deg) and were moving as soon as I saw them. I think the lights were white, but the event was so short that I’m really not sure. They moved across 60 deg of my field of view within less than 2 seconds from the same inclination of the moon to about 10deg lower. My view was then blocked by a tree so I couldn’t see where they went. I walked to where I could see behind the tree and the lights were gone.

The lights were aligned along the axis of movement, but were slightly out of alignment. I would have thought this to be a jet except that it was moving way too fast and there was no sound at all. If it were close to account for the movement, there should have been sound (the early morning was silent). If it were far to explain lack of sound then it was moving way too fast.

My background: I am an IT manager at a large electronics manufacturing company. I’m a family man with a wife and two teenage daughters. I’ve never seen or reported a UFO before.
