Navy Veteran Witnesses Cylinder-Shaped UFO in Ft. Hood Restricted Airspace

MUFON Case #  24547
Date:    06/10/2010
Time:    07:45
Location:  Killeen, Texas
Shape:    Cylinder
Summary:  Cylinder object, silver, no wings, no sound over restricted air space

Main Army installation in Central Texas. Restricted Airspace.
Date: 10 June 2010 Early daylight sighting
Approx time: 7:45 - 8:00am

Personal background: Veteran, Navy Sonar Supervisor.Perform services as Simulation Tech Aviation since separation. Army installation Central Texas.
As a side note, I am surrounded by aviation and easily recognizable aircraft both day and night.

On the morning of 10 June I walked out of the building I work in to get get some air and reflect on the early morning chaotic activity. The only area that has doors and windows is the front area of this building. It has a approx. SW footprint when exiting the main entrance.

After I walked through and beyond the entrance from the building, I panned the surrounding area both ground and sky. As I turned and looked to NE ( more easterly ) I noticed a very bright star looking light. I found that odd because it seemed intensely bright. At first I thought an unusually clear bright morning star?? The building I work in has lighting rods around its outer perimeter. As I watched this bright light ( myself remaining stationary ) it had movement across the sky against the rod.

The sky was mostly clear. Some wispy broken cloud masses were visible. It had an appearance as a fixed wing aircraft on a approach pattern at night.
Very bight as it approached.

As I watch this aircraft/object travel from approx. NE to SW direction it became clear to me that this wasn't the usual aircraft seen around here.

I asked one of the personnel in the building to come out and look.  I point out the object to this person but because he is near sighted and was not wearing his classes he couldn't make out the details I was talking about. At this point is was about at an apex to our location.

This person cannot or will not collaborate this event.

This object remained on a straight and steady path for the duration.

Estimated size: C130 aircraft ( fuselage only )
Estimated altitude given visual conditions: 1500 - 4000 ft. AGL
Estimated speed: 300 - 500 kts
Appearance: cylinder, silver. No wings, no tail rudder, no propulsion sound,
no rotor and no propeller visible. Mid length it had what appeared to be windows or some type of black banding.

Conclusion by this witness: Based on that fact that this can be a high traffic area,I speculate that nobody else in the immediate area would expect to see or question what I witnessed/saw. Unless I ran running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

After all my years of hearing about these kinda things I am really stumped.

End report.

Comment from a colleague: I have to tip my army veteran beret to this witness, who is definitely a professional in the aviation business and should certainly know the difference between ours, theirs and others.
Mr. Anonymous, thank you for one of the best detailed UFO observations in years.


I second that. -SW



  1. Hello Sirs, I have a satalites trail each other? If not, tonight I saw two lights trail one another..the first light headed towards Ft. Hood then the light slowly disappeared. about five seconds behind the light was another light. It slowed just a little as it approached Ft. Hood , but also disappeared as it got closer. I'm concerned because I haven't heard anyone saying anything about this!..what is going on? I know what a plane looks like! Can't you see this stuff on your radar for God sakes? If it's a satalite could you let us know something gettn kinda nervouse. and No it did not make a sound.
    Thanks..If you need more details I will visit the post and respond as needed...
    Thanks again.

  2. To Fire,
    We would be interested in anything you could add to your sighting account.

    There are websites that track satellites, including the International Space Station and Space Shuttle. Every satellite is tracked and I am sure "they" know of and track everything in our skies and in our "space". Are they going to tell you and me? No. That is why your reports are so important.

    Please click on the email link (below our POLL) on this blog, to send me an email.
    Thanks for your comment,
    S. Williams

  3. At approximately 12 noon, 09/30/2010, I saw the same thing as the report of the cylindrical UFO sighted in Ft. Hood.

    At first I thought it was a sea king helicopter or something of the sort, you know, the type of helicopter with two top rudders. Slowly I realized there were two problems with that. First of all, I couldn't hear it. Sure, maybe it was too high to hear. But on the other hand, it didn't seem that high, and try as I might I couldn't spot anything spinning above the craft.

    I live on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

  4. Several of us seen something very similar to this this evening over Tennessee @ 8pm 8/13/2011. The band or void in the center was a little larger than the one shown here. I went online to see if anyone else seen it and ran onto this thread.

  6. I live in Akron, Ohio and on the morning of April 17, 2014 my daughter and I saw the same UFO as the picture heading North.

  7. I saw something similar over Portland Oregon. I was with a friend. What appears as a band on this one may have been empty or connecting space of the two white sections. It also had something shadowy like a sun-collecting array coming from only one side. The side thing was more shadowy or gray. It looked like a satellite, but was too low. Flying about jet speed.

  8. Thank you, Dr. Dougal, for your report. If you see this, could you please give me a date and time that you saw the object; and what direction was it traveling?
    Thank you.
