Location: Pearland, TX
Shape: Cone
Duration:30 seconds
Helicopter sized, shaped like a missile at first, then wings appeared, vanished after going behind some trees.

One red craft appeared maybe a couple hundred feet off the ground above the highway, traveling east, right in front of me as I was driving. I didn't see it until it was directly in front of me.

At first, I thought it might be a helicopter. But it had no blades on top. Then I thought maybe a missile because it was an elongated shape with a sharp point at the front, like a mosquito.

But it had a complicated set of tail rudders, which I don't think is common of missiles. And it had a glass like enclosure, like seen on fighter jets, so someone or something was definitely flying it.

It disappeared behind the trees for a split second, and when I saw it again it had a pair of wings. Disappeared behind some trees for a second then never reappeared. The most distinctive features were the needle-nose front end and the overly-complex wings and tail rudders. They had extra bars, flaps, etc. everywhere.
