Texas witness says low flying UFO was square with four lights

A Texas witness at Austin reported two encounters with a low flying, square-shaped UFO with four lights that emitted a low humming sound beginning about 9:25 p.m. on June 25, 2014, according to testimony in Case 57373 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving westbound on an Austin street when the object was first seen.

“I observed what appeared to be a square, low-flying object approaching me from the east,” the witness stated. “There were four unwavering lights, two red and two yellow. There was very little space between the lights, giving the appearance of a compact square. Strangely, it seemed that one of the sides was its leading edge, not one of the angles.”

The witness slowed down for a better look.

“As the object flew over me, I watched it in the rear view mirror until it was no longer visible. I turned right and drove about one-quarter mile south, stopping at the mailboxes on the corner to retrieve the day’s mail.”

The witness then spotted the object again just as he was getting out of his vehicle.

“I noticed what appeared to be the same object, but now coming from the south (i.e., from behind me). It seemed to be about 300 feet in altitude and traveling about 25 mph. It made a slight humming noise. I watched as it flew above me and continued south until it again disappeared from sight, about one-quarter mile further south.”

The witness tried to rule out known objects.

“At first I thought it might be a model airplane, but the lights were too big and the hum was not characteristic of any model airplane I’ve ever been near. Plus, I’ve never known model airplanes to be flown in the evening. I discounted the possibility of small aircraft due to the non-blinking lights and lack of noise. I wondered if it was a drone, but since they are used for strictly military purposes – as far as I know – I didn’t think they would have lights.”

The witness also believes that the non-aerodynamic design is unusual.

“The square appearance and the fact that it was traveling with one of the sides forward, not one of the corner angles, seems curiously non-aerodynamic. I kept searching my mind for an explanation but, having come up with nothing, decided to file this report.”

    Interesting that finally I found a story, someone who may seen the same square shaped ufo as I did when I was a child. I hardly ever tell anyone about it. I was with my parents leaving a mall a little after closing time. When parents gasped looking above the mall a large square shaped object with different colored lights hovering over the mall. I was small so I thought it was pretty, the lights. It moved very slow, my parents were nervous and quickly got in the car and drove off. This happend in the early 80 s. In ma.

    I saw a square ufo in the 90’s hovering about as high as street lamps. My friend pointed it out as we went numb looking at it. It shone spot lights in the court. It then turned pointing slightly up and took of extetremely fast. When it turned and pointed up it made a strange almost robotic sound, other then that it was quite. I don’t tell many people for fear of disbelief. Im 31 I must have been about 10 or 12 but remember like it was yesterday
