Let me start with my story., about a year ago this time of year (late October, early November 2006) i became a witness to a strange object over the skies of Katy in Texas. Actually i saw the thing twice in the same day. The 2nd sighting was most significant. The first sighting, i wasn't sure what i was looking at. It was a clear bright sunny day around noonish, i was traveling up Hwy 99 and noticed something very shinny in the sky. I was looking at it wondering what it was. The light changed and i made my turn onto the Katy Freeway and when i looked back at the sky it was gone. So anyways, i went and picked up my friend and we rendezvoued over to the next town, Patterson, via the back roads. He wasn't home. And on the way back, my friend and I were cruising with the top on my Jeep down, when, right in front of us, this object comes out from the side of our view in the field right front us. Maybe 50 feet above the ground over a cow field. The object was disk shaped, bright and very big! i often compare a plane to being the size of your pinky nail when you extend your hand in front of your face. Well, this thing was the size of your thumb. For a good 30 seconds or so my friend and i watched this object in front of us all the while asking eachother what it was. It came from the left side of our view, stopped over some tree directly in front of us. It hovered for a few seconds., then right in front of our eyes vanished. Was definitely a strange sighting. Even more strange was when we made it back into town, we could see military helicopters flying over the Katy high school doing wild tail spins and maneuvers. To this day, there has been no explanation to what it was we saw in the sky that day over Katy. My friend and I seem to be the only people who saw it. I wish to know if anybody else saw that object that day and could back up our claim. And i still wounder about what i saw with a vivid picture still in my head.
