Two Texas witnesses describe close encounters with hovering UFOs

Texas witnesses from the same small town reported hovering UFOs near the ground level just six days apart this week.

A Texas witness at Lindale reported a triangle-shaped UFO hovering over a bridge off I-20 about 10:50 p.m. on June 10, 2014, according to testimony in Case 56993 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving home when he noticed the hovering object.

“It would get very bright and then fade out and the light would almost disappear and then it would get bright again,” the witness stated.

The witness described the object.

“The object was a glowing yellow at first and then the closer I got the more details I could see. I witnessed the object hover and I clearly saw a triangle, almost crescent-like object hovering with yellow lights surrounding the exterior getting brighter and fading.”

Then the object began to move.

“The object hovered and then slowly descended behind a row of trees and it was out of my sight. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before and it left me with chills and my heart racing after the incident.”

Texas investigators are also looking at a second report – Case 56970 – that occurred at 2:30 a.m. on June 4, 2014, that also occurred in Lindale involving an object hovering at the tree top level.

The witness was outside on a patio when she noticed a “yellow-orange light” in the sky.

“It kind of looked like it was outlined in red and moving lower in the sky,” the witness stated. “I turned my phone off because the screen was too bright and I wanted to see this light better. At first, I thought it was a star but quickly realized it wasn’t. It was maybe 100 feet in the air and descending in a sort of curved 45-degree angle moving at a slow rate of speed.”

The object eventually reached the tree top level.

“Once it got to the tree top it slowed almost to a stop, but looked as if it was bobbing up and down like floating on water. Then it moved to the right, and then back to the left. Then it started descending very slowly. At this point, it’s behind the tree but I can still see it. It gave me the impression that it was ‘busy’ doing something, like it was there for a purpose.”

The object then appeared to move to the ground level.

“It would hover and bob up and down and continue to descend. I watched it until it was so low that my back yard fence was in the way of me seeing it anymore. I was able to see it until it was about 8 feet off the ground. Also, where this light is hovering, there are houses right by the tree it’s behind and there was a dog barking in that area. “

The witness did not attempt to capture the object on a photo because she believed her phone would not pick up the object well.

“I can’t quit thinking about what I saw. I remember I was scared and I wanted to wake my husband up so he could see it too but he was out of town. I told him about it when he got home.”

    I too witnessed an odd brightly-lit obect in the sky on June 7, 2014. It was in the exact same area…between I-20 in Lindale and Tyler Pipe which is on SH-69. I went to a late movie in Tyler, and on my trip back home to Quitman I noticed somethhing bright low on the horizon that caught my attention and intrigued me. It had the coloring of a gas flame (orange and yellow) but did not appear to be a flame. I first saw it after passing Tyler Pipe but soon thereafter lost sight of it due to its low altitude. I breifly reaquired it as I got closer to I-20. My initial thought was that it was a new oil well and that they were burning off the natural gas. I was however somewhat perplexed when I passed by the location of where it was (or where it appeared to be) and saw nothing burrning or giving off such a light. The time was around 1:15 am.
