Description (In Witness's Own Words): My husband and I traveled all over Texas. We camped out one night at the Monahans Sand Dune State Park we pitched our tent up too early and the sand stayed hot under it before it could cool off. It was so hot under my back it was hard to fall asleep, my husband finally did. The tent had the top out, just the netting was there to see up into the clear black sky. I was laying there trying to sleep. I was starring at the stars about 2 am. I noticed about 4 stars zipping to other unmoving stars a lot. They were moving very fast and just darting to others zigzagging to them with no pattern. This was impossible! I just layed there and stared. I tried to get my husband to look but he just moaned. I was to bewildered to get up and get the camcorder out of the trunk. When you see something like that, you don't want to take your eyes away or you're afraid it'll disappear. After about maybe 10 minutes of watching this I finally drifted off. I never really believed in that kind of stuff but I can't deny what I saw! There's definitely something out there!

Investigator's Notes: This is another "lights in the sky" case. However, the sighting must have had quite an impact on the witness given that she vividly recalls details of the sighting nearly 15 years after it happened. Certainly her description does not fit any conventional explanation like satellites, meteors, balloons, space debris, etc.
