Round object with rotating lights around edge

Date: July 1993
Location: Clarendon, Texas, United States

"I saw a round flying object in plain view in the night sky around 2 a.m. It was close enough to see round lights around the edges and the lights were rotating in one direction. The UFO was traveling at a low speed and close enough to notice it was not a human-made object. There was no engine noise."

Summary: I saw a round flying object in plain view in the night sky around 2 a.m. It was close enough to see round lights around the edges and the lights were rotating in one direction. The UFO was traveling at a low speed and close enough to notice it was not a human-made object. There was no engine noise.

Date Reported: 2/7/2006

Sighting Time: 2:00 a.m.
Day/Night: Nighttime
No. of Witnesses: 2
Duration: 1 minute

Appearance/Description of Object(s)

"Perfectly round object. Appeared flat on the bottom. Flashing different colored lights which were changing constantly. Lights appeared to be rotating. Or maybe the UFO itself was rotating. It was hard to tell which was rotating."

Size of Object(s)

"I do not know or could imagine the size of the object since I have never seen one before, but it was the size of 1/2 inche by 1/2 inch round object, but we could clearly make out the lights. So maybe it was a small UFO flying somewhat low to the ground."

Description of Area/Surroundings

Rural area, ranching land, cattle ranch depot, railroad tracks parallel with US Hwy 287 for a while

Full Description and Details

"I was traveling with my uncle and his family from New Mexico back to Dallas. We were traveling south on US Hwy 287. We had just past a ranching depot somewhere around Clarendon, Texas which we knew because of the overpowering stench of cattle feces. We were traveling in my uncle's dually truck. Everyone was falling asleep and leaning on each other, so my cousin and I asked his dad if we could lie in the truck bed. He agreed and he pulled over so we could get out and create a makeshift bed in the truck's cargo area. My cousin and I were lying on our backs looking up at the sky. We were commenting on the clearness of the sky and multitudes of stars, and all of a sudden, a rotating round flying object with small lights along the edges appeared on one side of the sky. We watched it travel slowly southwestbound. It was moving way too slow for an aircraft. And the sky was clear with a near full moon so we could see it in plainview that it could not be a part of an aircraft. The lights around the edges were colored at different times. They would change from red to green, then to blue, then to dark yellow, then the pattern would begin all over again constantly. My cousin and I both exclaimed at the first time, "Did you see THAT?!" We lied there and stared at it until we couldn't see it anymore. It was the very first time I had ever seen a UFO. I have to admit, I was a big skeptic about UFOs, aliens, and the like. But that experience has made me believe that we are not the only species of intelligent life forms here on earth. I only wonder why our government has to hide facts. People like you and me witness this kind of thing it seems like all the time now. Hopefully my sighting will help others decide for themselves whether or not this phenomenon exists. I believe it."

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

"No, I do not think my sighting could be explained by any conventional man-made or natural object."

Witness Background

"I am a sales associate for a sales and marketing company and have a sales background which goes back ten years. I am a conservative type of person. I grew up in a christian family with strong morals and values."

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

"Before my sighting of a UFO, I was a HUGE skeptic. I even made fun of people who claimed to have seen a UFO. I thought it was a brain-fart of the human imagination. Boy, was I WRONG! I am a believer now. And now, I read the stories of others' accounts of UFO experience with great interest and understanding."

Other Comments

"Thank you for taking the time to read my sighting. It is of strange comfort to know that there are others like me out there looking for an answer."
