Occurred : 10/5/1999 21:00 (Entered as : 10/5/99 21:00)
Reported: 10/10/1999 12:45
Posted: 2/25/2003
Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Chevron
Duration:1-2 minutes
I saw an object chevron shaped in the evening sky, moving southwest. I live southwest of Bush Intercontinental airport and was watching two commercial jets departing, also in a southwesterly direction. I noticed that the planes had " bracketed " an object between them. The planes appeared to be at a greater altitude than this object and were moving at a greater speed. The object was opaque.....no lights were seen and no glow emanated from it. I could not judge the size but I assumed it to be large. As I reported.....it was chevron shaped and one " leg " seemed to be shorter than the other. It did nothing but just seemed to drift to the southwest. I am a Marine Corps Nam vet.......it wasn't an aircraft that I had ever seen. No sound was heard by me.....but with the jets roaring and all.
