This is not the only time that I have seen these lights, but this is the first time they seemed to be so close to the ground and to me. It startled me just a little and I slowed down to about 30 miles per hour. It was late and dark out that night.
I was driving by myself south on a farm to market road and about a mile after I had turned, I looked up and noticed these bright, bold, illuminating lights (about 7 of them) that were almost perfectly spaced apart from one another, at a slight upwards angle, and they were hovering over the area in which I was in and traveling in.
Every now and then, one of them would shoot off into the distance then quickly return-it was almost as if they were playing with each other in the sky. When I saw the lights I was frightened just a little because I could tell that this was not just a simple man-made aircraft of any sort that I had ever seen or heard of before.
I wanted to report it to someone, but did not know who to turn to that would believe what I had to say. Growing up I heard all kind of stories on how the Roswell people were treated, and though I am still fearful to what may come, I am still hopeful that the truth will eventually come out.
I am convinced that what I saw was a UFO or several UFOs. I have seen things throughout my life that were simular to these lights, but never this close to me. As a child, I was always looking up at the stars, and I know what airplanes look like-these lights were not airplanes.
Remembering the past is not one of my strong points because complete details are something that my brain does not recall for some reason. I have however witnessed several other things in the sky that were very much like this particular night.
When I was a child I would tell my parent about the funny looking light(s) in the sky, and they would say it was a falling star and to make a wish. At first I believed them, but as I grew up, I was convinced that all of those times before they were not stars, but something more. As far as falling stars go, I did not get the opportunity to see one of them until this past year right before Christmas. It is not every day that someone can witness something so bizarre like this night.
A trip that should have only taken me about 20 minutes, took me about 45 minutes because I was intrigued by what I was seeing. I realized that I was going to be late, so I picked up speed, so that I could get to my destination.
