Strange, Cloud-like Formation Witnessed over Denton, Texas
UFO Depiction

Denton, Texas - 04-20-12

Being an astronomy buff, I have seen many amazing and varied forms of UFOs, especially in the last few years. I hesitate to report them because I have never been able to photograph one and usually have had no other witnesses to confirm the sightings.

But, on Saturday night (4/20/12) right before midnight, as some friends and I were in lounge chairs watching the Lyrid meteor shower, one of our party exclaimed, "What the hell is that?"

I turned to share his vista and saw a cloud-like mass, seemingly translucent, yet well organized, in a form similar to an oyster. This shape traversed the entire sky from south to north in three or four seconds.

It was impossible, under the circumstances, to determine how high it was, but from the amount of light it reflected back down to the city below I would have to say it was less than two miles up and it passed by us a little over a mile away to our east. It was hard to see well until it went over I-35 less than a mile to our north.

It kept its basic shape throughout its trajectory, but as it distanced over the brighter lights of the highway it became more apparent that it had a flying wing sort of structure, which is the way my companion preferred to describe it.

The other three observers did not see it as it was not bright in and of itself at all and moving very fast.

There was no moon and the sky was clear save for a slight haze. It made no noise that we could discern. It seemed to float and glide effortlessly. From our perspective, it could have been traveling close to a thousand miles an hour aqainst a northerly wind, adequately retaining its form the whole time it was in view, and must have been quite large, say as large as a baseball diamond or football field.

I have seen something similar to this, although somewhat more peculiar; one over the Oklahoma countryside and another over the city of Austin.

Yet those seemed to materialize from a point high in the sky and rapidly move off, glowing slightly greenish and leaving upward trails, disappearing in less than a second.

My friend and I concurred that this mass was not a natural cloud, nor flock of birds, nor insect swarm, nor reflected light from a spotlight and was certainly no meteor.

My speculation has led me to the probabilities that it was either some form of plasma or a concealed vehicle of some sort or perhaps, both. It definitely seemed to be going somewhere and was amazingly fast.
