Just last week I was out at enchanted rock and saw the same thing!! I slept on top and while I was looking up I saw it coming across fairly slow from left to right. Very very dim red lights on each corner and then something amazing happened. Right as it went over top of me it flashed an extremely bright light! Just a giant rectangle of light and it faded back to it's dark color and kept going out of sight. Perfect rectangle and no noise whatsoever. Absolutely blew my mind.
Witness reports: Not aware of any time missing but I laid on the top (of Enchanted Rock) all night without a watch so who knows. This was last Friday the 22nd (2011) but it was most likely Saturday by this time I'd say about 2 am.

About Enchanted Rock
Located in the Texas Hill Country, the huge pink granite rock formation known as Enchanted Rock rises from the Llano Uplift and is second only in size to the larger granite rock in Georgia, known as "Stone Mountain".
Enchanted Rock is an Historic Landmark that lies between Fredericksburg and Llano, Texas and is not far from Luckenbach, Texas, all of which have become popular tourist attractions.
Our motorcycle trips through the Hill Country would not be complete without a stop at Enchanted Rock, also known as the "Spirit Song Rock". The enormous granite rock heats up from the day's sun, then as the night winds chill the air the rock actually begins to moan and hum. The ghostly sounds amidst an eerie setting can give one a sense of another time, another world.
Spirits are said to haunt this landmark; one that can be seen from 30 miles away. Perhaps UFOs use Enchanted Rock as a landmark also. -SW
