MUFON Case # 22268
Event Date: 07/19/2006 16:21
Location: Anna, Texas
Distance: 100 feet or less
Summary: A silver ball
I was leaning over the top of my car talking on the phone to a friend, when I saw a round silver shiny object come out of a cloud, leave its environment maybe twenty feet and then dart into another cloud, as if it realized it had left cover. There was no sound, not a humming or the whir of a classic motor.
As I was talking on the phone out of boredom, I looked upward as the event happened.
The clouds were about 100ft above ground (this is a 5' tall persons idea of height). The clouds were brilliant blue with a few large puffy clouds interspersed throughout the skyline.
I know it sounds odd and lasted less than 60 seconds....but I KNOW I am not hallucinating. What is truly weird, it was if I could see seams in the craft....were I too imagine it, first I would go with the '50's version of the inverted cup an saucer.......which my father and I saw in 1960 Anchorage Alaska.
Secondly, I would expect them to be so advanced it would not have seams.
I knew exactly what I was seeing, a UFO...we don't have crafts like that in our military; my daughters are USAF & US Army.
I was so excited and let down at the same time. I look for the old fashion ''saucers'', so I was kinda disappointed it was a ball. Buy I knew what I saw was not anything I have flown in.
I told the friend I was talking to at the time, she scoffed at me then said she believed me...but I have learned in the course of our friendship, that is not necessarily true.
Once it left my vision, well, I have kept my eyes on the skies ever since, especially on semi-cloudy days...to no avail. I want to see more!
So having seams was there anyone doing experiments?
I have copied the info from my journal.
To have made this up would take credence from my memory...a lie has no real life, this happened, whether I am Believed or not, doesn't matter, I was there and I saw what I have reported here.
I drew in my journal within minutes of the event, but I don't posses the ability to send it to you except in snail mail. You still want it?
P.S. My father Maj. Donald R. Thomas (deceased) told me the USAF would not waste it's resources to bring all those men to Roswell for a weather balloon.
