an unexplainable occurrence

This is my report, June 27, 2004 at 4:14 am.

I am driving southbound on Jester Blvd. towards Ranch Road 2222. We had just left my friend Tony's house on Crab Tree Road. I have made it about a quarter mile away from Tony's house. I had the fog lights turned on because there was so much fog i could hardly see 30 feet in front of the car and I am driving very slow because of the weather conditions as well as the many deer out in that neighborhood. Plus I am driving my room mates 2004 Nissan 350Z Roadster and I am very aware and careful when driving his car.

I am heavily concentrating in the foggy road ahead then all of a sudden I see this green light right there in the fog in front of us in the sky. it seemed to be about 50 to 100 feet high from the ground. If I had to guess I would think it was about the size of a school bus.

The object flew from the right to the left covering about 100 yards within 1 or 2 seconds, then it disappeared. At that moment I was barely able to get the words out of my mouth to my friend "What was that?" and as he is saying "Did you see that?" the object appears again after it not being there for at least 3 seconds and it seemed as soon as it reappeared it shot upward into the sky at a left kind of angle, the same direction it just shot towards, but upward this time.

I had two lady friends following us in their car riding together. As soon as this happened I was concerned and pulled immediately over. My friends pull up in their car next to me and I ask them "Did you see that?" The passenger (Lisa) says "That thing in the sky? I thought I was just seeing things". And the driver (Robin) says "See what?" So I know that since Lisa saw it that there is no way it was a reflection, or anything we were able to comprehend. We only stayed about long enough to pause for a moment and then we decided to go ahead and continue to head home. I looked down at the radio and the time was 4:14 am. I do not know what time it was prior to leaving, but I honestly do not think there was any missing time lapse.

The more we spoke about it, the stranger it seemed. I was driving a 2004 Nissan 350Z convertible and even though the top was up, we never heard a sound of a helicopter or a plane. The headlights on the car are florescent lights and gives a good visual in the conditions we were in and there was nothing to justify what we saw.

Grand-it was 4:14 am and you may be thinking what were we doing up so late, that we must have been drinking and just seeing things. And I will admit we had been drinking earlier that night out at a bar, but had not had a drink for over 2 hours, since last call in Texas is 2 am. I had had 3 beers all night long and was totally sober and the designated driver. For the record.

So anyway, Yesterday I was thinking still how strange this occurrence was and that I wanted to find out more. I was thinking of calling my local Airport, but thought asking some desk clerk about a UFO she would think I was nuts. So I got on the internet. I came across www.ufocenter.com and thought this is who I need to contact and report this strange sighting.

So I spoke with Peter Davenport on the phone. He asked me to document this report and this is what I am doing. Mr. Davenport took my report verbally and during the process he has pointed out some things that now has me a little worried. I am referring to Sleep Paralysis. Just last night, one day after this incident I had what I call a "Sleep Paralysis Attack". I will not get too into it, but it sure is strange timing. I have these attacks maybe about once every year or year and a half since I was about 12 years old. You can do a google.com search for sleep paralysis and read up more on it. I did not have any visual during my attack.

So in detail about the object in the sky. I will describe this object in the sky that I can not identify as anything I have ever seen. Like I mentioned earlier the soul foundation of the object appeared to be about the size of a school bus. It was long and narrow. It had this distinct green light glowing in the shape of a bus. And underneath the largest green light I described was this thin green line the same width of the large object. And to the right of the object was a orange or red colored ball of light. It all happened so fast, but the bright light of the object in the sky burned the image in my head and I can recall it like I am just seeing it now.

I will get my friends to try and give a statement of this occurrence as well. I might be the only one out of us that is taking this so seriously, but I will try and get them to participate in anything you at the UFO Center need as well, because 3 out of the 4 of us were very fascinated and interested in what we saw.

Thank you for your time and interest in our story.
