I approximated the date, but I know it was in April on a Friday. I remember because it was the first day of the St. Mary's University Oyster bake, which kicks off Fiesta Week in San Antonio. My (ex)girlfriend and I had been near my parent's office. She was with me while I was surveilling a claimant at an apartment complex off of Loop 410. At the time, I was working as an investigator for the family business. I worked on insurance cases: worker's comp and auto liability. We had left the complex and were at my parent's office, which was nearby: ((address deleted)) Executive Center. We'd planned for me to pickup a van there. I'd drive it over to my parents' house and name deleted))(my girlfriend) would follow in my car. While in the parking lot, we noticed a weird looking object in the sky west of us, in the direction of my parents' place. The object was silver-gray and metallic. It was shaped like a conical disc seen in profile. It seemed very big. We got into the vehicles after wondering about it briefly. Since we were going in the same direction as the house (the house is about 1.5 miles from the office, "as the crow flies", but about 2 miles away after all the twists in the road.) I decided to keep my eye on the "thing." So did ((name deleted)), as it turned out. All the way home, the thing didn't seem to move. That is, it seemed stationary. And as we got closer to the house, we could see more of it, as if we were getting closer and closer to being under it. The thing looked to be as high in the air as it was far away from the office. At arms length, I'd say it would be about the size of a silver dollar, maybe bigger. By the time we got to the house, we were underneath it. Diane had parked behind me. I got out of the car to look up at the "thing". I could see the underside, and there were structures there, but the underside seemed "hazy". Blurred. And I had the odd feeling that I was forgetting what the underside looked like even while I was looking directly at it. Weird. Now, the whole time I was driving home, I kept telling myself to stop, go to my car (which Diane was following me in) and grab my damn camera. It's crazy, but for some reason I almost "couldn't." Very strange. So, when we arrived at the house, I parked and ran back to my car. Diane was staring up through the windshield at it. I tried to get her attention, then looked back up and the thing was gone! I was a little pissed! Diane was still staring, at nothing now. When I snapped her out of it, she said that after we parked the thing flashed a light "at" her and was gone. I never heard any more about it. The house is at an intersection on a major boulevard (Wurzbach) and is very near the medical center. There were lots of other cars around, tooling along Wurzbach. I expected to hear that someone else had seen the thing, but I never heard anything about it. Oh, when I mention "haze or aura" below, it only applies to the underside of the "thing", which was otherwise clear and sharp. In my opinion, the thing was somewhat elegant in design.
