Hovering, silver disk viewed from Park Mountain towards downtown San Antonio, TX.

This report is for an individual that does not use a PC. Mr. ((name deleted)) works and lives on my property in the Park Mountain subdivision in North West San Antonio. The subdivision is in the beginning of the Texas Hill Country and one hill beyond the view of downtown San Antonio. This location is just below the intersection of air traffic heading to the San Antonio International Airport in an approximately east direction and the Lackland Air Force Base traffic heading approximately south.

Mr. ((name deleted)) had gone outside his room that morning at 2:00 because he heard dogs barking. As he looked around, he saw a silver disk hovering and making no noise but flashing red linear lights up in the shape of a V and a single red light flashing straight down.

Since my home is on a sloped lot, he moved up hill to get a better view. The craft was more clearly visible and it appeared to be a silver color with a yellow light around the circumference. ((name deleted)) reported t! his information to me the day after the sighting. He had tried to call me on my cell phone several times beginning at 2a.m. but I had left it in my car. The circular craft was approximately 50 feet in diameter and was approximately 200 yards away. It was situated in a position to look over the horizon towards downtown San Antonio and towards Lackland AFB. ((name deleted)) tried to snap photos with his cell phone but due to the distance and night sky, he could not capture the craft.

The craft hovered for approximately 3.5 hours and disappeared just before sunrise. It has not been seen since but I have advised ((name deleted)) to definitely contact me regardless of the time if a similar situation occurs again.
