Sighting Reports 2007

Man Views Erratic Moving Triangular Shaped Object

Date of Sighting: April 11, 2007
Time of Sighting: 5:10 AM CDT
Duration of Sighting: 5 Minutes
Date Sighting Reported: April 11, 2007
Location of Sighting: Slocum, Texas (About 130 Miles East-Southeast of Dallas)
Latitude: 31.61 Degrees North
Longitude: 95.45 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Stars Visible
Astronomical: Jupiter Was Visible to the Southwest at the Time of Sighting. The Planet Was Quite Low (14 Degrees Above the Horizon).

Description: Listen to Clip of Interview With Witness (MP3)
The witness reported the sighting only a few hours after it happened. He reportedly was outside "star gazing" and saw a bright light towards the southwest. The light went out and then three lights appeared in a triangular configuration. The three lights were followed by a red light (at times). The light configuration (object) moved erratically side to side and made a few circles. Apparently the object was following by a "trail." The witness heard no sound and observed the object for about 5 minutes. The object then shot off rapidly to the south and disappeared.

Investigator's Notes: The witness was quite excited by what he saw. He had just risen from bed and said that he routinely looks at the sky when he gets up in the morning. He at once noticed the bright light. I don't think that the sighting was the result of Jupiter given what the witness reported. Given available information I have no explanation of what the witness saw. Anyone else seeing unusual lights in this area is urged to report their sighting.
