Sighting Reports 2009 Man & Daughter Terrified by Close Encounter
With Semi-Circular Object Hovering Close to Ground
Medina Lake is a Few Miles Northwest of San Antonio, Texas.
Date of Sighting: March 25, 2009
Time of Sighting: 5 to 5:15 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Medina Lake (Few Miles Northwest of San Antonio, Texas - See Map)
Description: My wife, child and I were visiting my Father-in-law today at his place by Medina Lake here in San Antonio, Texas. I took my daughter on a small tractor ride through a dense wooded area about a mile from the lake itself.
My daughter was on my lap steering when she suddenly pointed up at this object directly in front of us about 100 yards and around 30 feet off the ground. She turned around quickly and hid her eyes on my shoulder as I tried to stretch my leg out to get my cell phone out of my pocket and take pictures.
I was extremely nervous that it was so clearly in plain view and that I knew I needed to get the pictures, but not being able to take my eyes off of the object made for fumbling fingers and tight pockets, not to mention that my daughter was scared to death. This whole process from first sighting to getting the cell phone out took about 7 - 9 seconds.
By that time the object tilted slightly and the sun light gleamed off of its surface as it disappeared. I tried to see a trail, but there was nothing. I told my daughter to relax and when we got back and told everyone they said we were pulling their legs.
But it happened.
The entire sighting lasted an estimated 11 - 12 seconds.
1. The craft (object) was semi-circular
2. A mercury - mirror type shell
3. Slight protrusions from top center and maybe bottom as well.
4. No sound
5. No lights
6. No windows
7. Slight acidic taste to faint odor (may have been any number of outside scents though)
8. No exhaust trail visible
9. Craft (object) was around 12 -15 feet side to side and 5 - 6 feet top to bottom
10. Mower (tractor) encountered no motor malfunction and cell phone worked fine once in hand.
11. No one else saw a thing from what I know.
Note: Daytime close encounters with unknown objects are quite uncommon. I spoke to the witness subsequent to his written report. He was quite convinced by he saw and his daughter was quite frightened by what she saw. He said that his daughter is still upset. Apparently the witness did not check to see if the object left any ground traces. The object appeared in a wooded remote area. What more can I say: unidentified!
