|This is the second time in 3 years that I've seen a UFO while driving on Hwy. 75 in Sherman, Texas.
This evening, at 7:15 P.M., heading south bound on Hwy. 75, nearing exit 56, I saw what appeared to be a strange, low lying cloud. It was above the tree lines and roughly 1/2 the size of an 18 wheeler. The formation was moving east at a strange pace.
I then noticed it start moving south at a faster pace and then move upward. I slowed down to watch it. It was at this time I saw the object lift upward again and then it vanished.
I have a degree in science and I am a retired Earth science teacher. I've never observed a cloud shaped like this one or move in this manner.
It was disk shaped, domed roof, charcoal grey and was the consistency of a cloud.
Airplanes flying into DFW were in the background in the same southeast direction. I was using the movement and speed of the planes in the distance to compare the cloud/UFO.
