Duration: 20 sec
No of observers: 2

Location: Bandera, TX, USA

Shape: Triangle
Characteristics: Lights on object

Very bright, silent, triangular object over Bandera County, Texas. suddenly turned off lights tho object still there.

It was about 10 after 10 PM this evening, July 3, 2011, when I stepped outside to look at the sky. It was a beautiful, clear sky filled with stars.

A few seconds after looking up I saw a very bright object moving from north to south. It was moving steady and as it passed overhead, it appeared to have a triangular shape. There appeared to be two, bright lights shining side by side and there were no other lights. Lights were steady with no blinking. There was no sound whatsoever.

The object moved at a steady clip but there was no way to know how high it was. Of course, the higher it was would have meant a very large object. At arm's length it appeared to be about 1/2 the size of my little fingernail. The entire sighting lasted maybe 15 to 20 seconds.

As it reached about 40 degs. above the Southern horizon the lights just went out. I could still see a very faint object of the same size but it quickly moved off and disappeared. I found out when I came in that my wife, who was in the backyard walking the dog, saw it also but thought it was a plane. I was in the Air Force for 4 years and never saw anything like this before.


We suspect the witness observed an over-flight of the International Space Station. PD
