Large light appears and disrupts vehicle power.

I was traveling southbound on Mopac (aka Tx Loop 1), about to exit for HWY 360 Capitol of Texas.

It was 4:36 am when my 1999 Brown Chevy Astro abruptly turned off. I attempted to turn the key but had zero power.

That's when a large light, partially obscured by light clouds, appeared and remained motionless.

I stepped out of my vehicle and took a picture with my smartphone. I attempted to access the video recorder, but the light increased its intensity and grew to 4 or 5 times the size of a full moon, before rapidly vanishing.

This light created no sound, no heat, and no wind. It did not pulse, flash, or change colors. It merely appeared, grew larger and brighter, and then disappeared.

I remained outside of my vehicle for 3 or 4 more minutes, but the light did not reappear. I got back in my car and it started.

I have no damage to the car, or any other devices that were with me at the time.


We spoke via telephone with the witness on two occasions, and he seemed to us to be quite eloquent, rational, and sober-minded. We suspect that he is a very good, and reliable, witness. PD
