Lights Over Del Valle
MUFON Case # 30322
City: Del Valle
Distance: One mile or less
Summary: two lights hovering and then shot off
I was on my way home from work at around 2:30am on highway 71. I was traveling at about 65-70mph going north(towards Del Valle). Two blue-ish lights appeared from under the slight cloud cover. The lights hovered for maybe a second or two and abruptly shot off in the distance and the lights went out. I live pretty close to the austin airport, but the planes they use don't normally perform such intense moves. I thought it may have been a meteor or a shooting star perhaps but was quick to reject the ideas since the lights were under the cloud cover and shooting stars and meteors fall. These lights shot in a straight line. The two lights may have been attached to one single object since they did not move apart/away from each other, they were constantly perpindicular with each other throughout my brief sighting. I suspect that the object/craft may have been a boomerang shape with a rather sharp angle in the middle, something like >
I can not be exact on this idea since it was dark and the angle in which I had witnessed the event. There are a lot of variables but I haven't seen anything like it.

Cone Shaped Object Lands or Crashes Near Coahoma, TX
MUFON Case # 30344
Distance: Over one mile
Vallee Index: AN1
Summary: speeding across the sky angled downwards and then disappeared
My mom and I were driving east in the country when we saw a bright light streaking across the sky. We both exclaimed that it looked like it was angled towards the ground and would crash. We thought it might be an airplane, but it was shaped like a cone with red lights at the point in front and yellow in back. It was very fast and we watched it for less than 10 seconds. As it got closer to the ground we became alarmed that it was crashing but then it disappeared. We pulled over and got out of the jeep to see if it would reappear or to see if it crashed, but it never reappeared. We were a little creeped out at the sudden way it disappeared. It was very close to the ground, which is why we thought at first that it was an airplane landing. But there are no airports around the area and it was going way too fast. We heard no noise while in the jeep or when we got out.
