Description: We were driving down Ayers Street going toward Spohn Hospital on Shoreline Blvd. We stopped at the red signal light at Santa Fe Street about three blocks from Spohn Hospital. Looking toward the Bay, my husband and I saw a very large white disk that look like a full moon coming down. It look like it was going to crash into the shoreline on Ocean Drive where Doddridge Street ends. Instead, it turned sideways. It looked like a very large balloon about the size of the Holiday Inn on Shoreline Blvd., but round. It looked like it had a light green scarf, about the color of the background of this website, over it. We went straight to Ocean Drive and turned left so we could watch it. It cruised along the shoreline of Shoreline Blvd. about a half mile from the shoreline, thirty to fifty feet above the water. The tail of the scarf tail was slowly wiping backing back and forth. It kept cruising up the coast toward Port Aransas. We thought it would crash, but, it didn’t.

When we got home we watched the ten o’clock news. There was nothing about it. For three days I looked in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times newspaper for a news article. On the third day, I found an article that said it was a weather balloon. Weather balloons don’t go sightseeing. I know this has been a long time ago. But, there have been UFO sightings in Corpus Christi and I have never seen this one listed.
