MUFON Case # 22329
Event Date: 2010-02-16 22:10 GMT
Distance: One mile or less
Summary: Rectangular black craft moving very slow apx 500 feet with 4 dim red lights. NO FAA lights. 1 dimensional?.. like a flat black sheet of paper with lights on each corner.
On Feb 16th, 2010 approx. around 10:10 - 10:15 PM, I was coming back from the store and was walking between the house and next door. It was just floating across the sky right over my next door neighbors house at apx 15 to 20 mph. It was solid black. So black it was like a void in the sky.
At approx. 500 feet more or less it seemed to move in a straight line no sound at all. I would never have known this thing was above me if I didn't look up. It had 4 dim red lights on each corner on the craft. Solid, not blinking. It was moving wast to east.
No FAA lights.
I don't think I remember ever seeing a brick floating in the sky before. It only had one dimension! Not 2 or 3 dimensions just one.. like a flat sheet of black paper it was so flat that it was out of my sight in 30 seconds.. I guess cause it was flat and one dimensional.
The very dim lights could have been plasma vents to keep it up in the air.. I dunno.. just a guess.
It was a drop jaw moment for me. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I always wanted to see a real UFO for myself all my life. Actually after seeing this thing and thinking about it it gives me the willies.
I reported this to the Mesquite, Texas police dept. Nobody else reported this thing and I could tell the cop that called me back was laughing at me for reporting it.. I ask him if anyone else reported this and he said no I was the only one. I reported it like 3 or 4 days later. Didn't think the police would do much about it anyways but thought it might help just to document the sighting.
This was my "First" UFO sighting. I wish I had a camera handy but the one I do have is only a 4 mega pix camera and seeing the UFO was so dimly lit I don't think it would have been a very good picture or video.
