sprang to my feet out of astonishment in what I was seeing.
It was an object, a ship like I had never seen passing

neighor's back yard, only it was maybe four or six hundred
feet high but was of a good size." "This object
was... over 100 feet wide. It was a cigar shape... and

"Around 11:30 p.m., my wife and I went out side
to enjoy a cool breeze that had just moved in. We sat
and talked for about five minutes when, by peripheral
vision, I caught a glimpse of an object moving in the
skies. It was like nothing I had ever seen before."

highly reflective object was quite large, easily being
over 100 feet wide. It was a cigar shape but more oval
on the sides than round, being maybe 20 feet in diameter
and it had a spere in the middle of it, protruding from
the center top. The spere was more a dome on top of the
body and was maybe a third of width longwise of this ship.
Picture a small ball cut in half placed on the top center
of a semi smushed cigar but all dark polished mirror surface.
I could see that it was made of sections that, if separated,
would have evenly divided it lengthwise into four or five
sections. It had no lights whatsoever or at least, they
were not lit and it made absolutely no sound and it moved
in a perfect straight line and traveled side ways meaning
the long side of the body moved forward with the dome
sitting on top so there were no visible moving parts;
it was solid and looked solid and clean."
I stretched out my arm, it would be 6 inches to hold in
the view of my widespread fingers. I would have to estimate
the length of this cigar-shaped ship to be no less than
100 ft wide, and with an oval cross section of 30 feet
wide by 20 feet high with a round half dome of about 30
ft. in diameter sitting on the top and in the middle of

live in suburban town right outside of Houston so while
on certain nights, we have clear skies, we are limited
somewhat by the light pollution that reflects off the
sky. This particular night, it was hazy, cool and somewhat
windy. Certain bright stars could still be seen throught
the hazy sky; however, there were no clouds. There are
no military bases that I'm aware of in this area (Zip
Code 77459) only a small airport around 5 miles away which
serves Sugar Land mainly for small and private aircraft.
It did seem to be moving parallel with some large powerlines
that may be a mile from our home."
Description and Details:
weather had been warm and humid through most of the month
of October so when the cool front finally came into our
suburb town of Missouri City, located just southwest of
Houston, my wife asked me to come outside to our patio
to just sit and enjoy the much awaited cool breeze. Well
cool it was, somewhere in the upper '60's and breezy just
enough to make the tree tops sway, so all that could be
heard was the wind passing through the leaves. The skies
were hazy, but not cloudy, almost a medium grey tone.
This of course is a result from local light pollution
reflecting on our skies. A couple dozen or so stars managed
to shine through this haze anyhow. Well, we were talking
face to face and our patio is open to one end almost in
the shape of a U so my right side was facing the open
end. Well, I was about to comment on something when out
of my right peripheral vision up in the sky, I spotted
something moving so naturally I turned to see it. I sprang
to my feet out of astonishment in what I was seeing. It
was an object, a ship like I had never seen passing throught
the night sky almost directly over my adjacent neighor's
back yard, only it was maybe four or six hundred feet
high but was of a good size. Immediately, I ran to the
middle of our backyard dragging my wife by her arm hardly
being able to speak. I cried to her to look at up at the
sky and bare witness to what I'm seeing here, I pointed
at it! It was moving in a perfectly straight heading in
a southerly direction and moving slowly, ominously and
without any noise nor any lights. It was almost invisible,
nearly cloaked but since I caught its movement, I was
able to focus on it and clearly see its shape and what
its surface looked like. Had it not been for the ambient
lighting of city light pollution and the grey lit sky
serving as a backdrop, I might have missed it since its
surface appeared to be reflective, a mirrored surface
but a dark polished mirrored chrome which reflected everything
around it, including the grey sky and lights off the ground.
I saw it clearly for what seemed a long time but in fact,
was more like 15 to 20 seconds. It was utterly fantastic
and somewhat frightening to witness this. I could hardly
believe it was happening and I was there at the right
time. However, much to my disappointment, it went beyond
the tree line in our backyard before my wife could see
it as well. Well, we ran through our home to the front
to hopefully get a second glimpse of this slow moving
object but we were unable to spot it again."
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
shape of this flying object was one like I have never
seen before. I've seen many military experimental craft
and am a Sci-fi fan but not even in any movies have I
seen such a shape. It was running under power as it took
a steady course flying at an even altitude and maybe traveling
100 mph or less. It was moving slowy but steadily and
was almost unoticable if you didn't catch its movement.
Think Predator from the movie, you can see the outline
and that it reflects its environment, practically cloaked.
Just amazing in size."

on UFOs, before and after sighting:
39 years old and as a youth always dreamt of journeys
to the stars, in make believe of course. I've been a Star
Wars fan since youth so yes I looked up many nights, wondering
what is out there. Through out my life, I witnessed maybe
one other time what seemed to be lights that seemed to
dance across the dark sky but they were too high an altitude
to see other than what looked like bright stars zipping
back and fourth. There were three of them and they traveled
back and fourth like no airplane could and finally just
zipped off in separate directions. I was a young teenager
when I saw these, walking home one night while looking
up at the heavens. I never saw them again, only in dreams
of course but who doesn't. I'm not one to dismiss the
possibility of UFO's and I am intrigued by the whole notion
but I have never really seen something so amazingly real
with my own two eyes. I believe there are many things
with no explanation but I'm a rational average man with
a family. I would like to see it again but since that
night, a few days ago, I have not had any luck. I am fortunate
to have witnessed this and would like to know if any one
else might have seen this particular shaped flying object.
I have a sketch I drew up the very next day and would
be happy to scan it and send it to you. Thanks for your
