UFO over Corpus Christi near naval yard on November 10, 1957

My wife, my mother and myself we on our way to a baseball game. As we were passing the naval yard a brightly glowing ball of light came down and almost hit our car. I pulled off the road. We were terrified. The light was like magneseum burning it was so bright. After a minute or so it shot up into the sky so fast we could hardly track it with our eyes. My mother suggested that we leave and notify the authorities. While driving the craft was following us at a high altitude. The first house we stopped at would not let us use the phone. We stopped again and made our call. The people that talked to me said what we saw was a weather balloon. I told him ((word deleted--equivalent of "No!"), I know what I saw and it was not a weather balloon. To this day I remember it like it happened yesterday.
