Description: My brother and I live in leander texas and along with five other people saw what we think was a UFO. It was coming across the sky at a slow rate and lasted about 7 seconds then shot off really fast and disappeared.

Second Report by Witness (In Response to Investigator Questions):

I think it was a UFO because I watched this show on ufo's and it looked just like the ones on that TV show.

It was an oval shaped object. It was really bright like the sun, but it was white in color.

It was about as big as a full moon.

There was no sound at all.

As it was coming across the sky at a slow rate there was no trail behind it and when it took off and disappeared there was no trail either.

Comments: In his original report the witness did not elaborate on the appearance and shape of the object. This information was provided in his second report. No satellites were visible at the time of his sighting. Given the updated information provided by the witness I have no explanation for this sighting.
