Encounter with Unknown Craft on Texas Highway
I am from Quanah, TX and was working in Childress County, Texas, on Road 256. An aircraft of some kind came in very low at an angle from my left. I slowed down when I realized that we were going to cross paths on the road. However, when it reached the road, it turned to face me. I thought it was going to land on the highway and I stopped to avoid hitting it. It hovered right in front of me.

It had a wingspan of approximately 6 to 8 feet, with lights along the wings. It had a very tiny box in the middle. I inched to the right and it did also. I inched to the left and it did also. I moved forward a few inches and it moved back. We were at an impasse for about fifteen seconds. Then it moved to the right of me and hovered there at a slightly higher elevation than my SUV and was angled slightly.

When it moved further down the side of my vehicle, I could see a projection - possibly a camera lens - aimed into my vehicle. I started forward and it moved on down to the back of my vehicle. I sped away and it soared over the fence to my right, dipped, then rose straight up into the air and circled right, then vanished from my sight.

The box in the middle was approximately ten to twelve inches square, had a slant on the front portion, and was all gun-metal gray.

Because I had observed planes from a nearby Air Force base training along the river, I assumed this was some sort of drone from the military. However, I haven't been able to find any comparable pictures on any web site and I don't believe the military would be targeting civilians for fun. The entire episode lasted approximately 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. So, do you have any ideas? Thank you.
