AFTER ENJOYING A BURGER AT THE LITTLE ALI-INN, ON THE WAY TO OUR TRUCK WE LOOKED UP INTO THE SKY AND NOTICED A VERY BRIGHT ORANGE, STATIONARY LIGHT IN THE EASTERN SKY.

IT WAS EXTREMELY BRIGHT AND LARGER THAN ANY STAR IN THE VERY DARK SKY. WE WATCHED IT FOR A WHILE AND WONDERED WHAT IT WAS AND JOKED ABOUT UFOS. WE WERE THE ONLY ONES IN THE PARKING LOT. SINCE WE WERE RUNNING LATE AND HAD GET TO LAS VEGAS,WE DECIDED TO GET ON OUR WAY.

WE WERE ABOUT TEN MINUTES DOWN HIGHWAY 375 WHEN MY ATTENTION WAS DRAWN TOWARD MY PASSSENGER SIDE WINDOW BY THE BRIGHT ORANGE LIGHT THAT WAS IN THE WEST NOW. I HAD THE FEELING THAT IT WANTED US TO OBSERVE IT. SO WE STOPPED THE TRUCK AND GOT OUT TO HAVE A LOOK.

AS WE STOOD THERE WATCHING THIS EXTREMELY BRIGHT STATIONARY ORANGE LIGHT IT CHANGED TO YELLOW! WE HAD A PAIR OF BINOCULARS IN THE TRUCK. WE GOT THEM FOCUSED ON THE BRIGHT YELLOW LIGHT. WHAT WE SAW WAS A TOP-SHAPED OBJECT THAT WAS SO BRIGHT IT WAS LIKE MOLTEN, FIREY,WHITE-YELLOW METAL. THERE WAS AN AURA OF RED AROUND IT, AND IT WAS PULSATING.

SUDDENLY THERE WAS ANOTHER LIGHT SMALLER VERY BRIGHT YELLOW LIGHT THAT APPEARED ABOUT A FOOT AWAY (OUR EARTHLY PERSPECTIVE) TO THE LEFT OF THE BIGGER FIRY BRIGHT YELLOW LIGHT. IT TOO WAS STATIONARY.

WE TURNED AROUND TO THE EAST AND THERE WAS ANOTHER ONE ABOUT THE SAME SIZE AS THE SECOND LIGHT. IT TOO WAS BRIGHT AND STATIONARY. ALL OF THEM APPEARED THE SAME AS WE VIEWED THEM WITH THE BINOCULARS. WE COMMENTED THAT THE BIG LIGHT MUST HAVE MOVED TO THE EAST FROM THE WEST WHILE WE WERE DRIVING; AND THAT THE OTHER TWO LIGHTS WERE NOT PRESENT WHEN WE FIRST NOTICED THE BIG BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE EASTERN SKY.

WE GOT IN THE TRUCK AND CONTINUED DOWN THE HIGHWAY. AS WE WERE TRAVELING ALONG, THE DRIVER WAS SUDDENLY STARTLED AND SAID SOMETHING BIG AND BAT LIKE JUST WHIZZED PAST HIS TRUCKS LEFT FENDER AND SIDE WINDOW , SO VERY CLOSE THAT HE COULD SEE IT. WHILE HE WAS MENTIONING THIS TO ME, ANOTHER ONE WHIZZED BY AND STARTLED HIM PLENTY. IT WENT BY FAST, BUT NEAR ENOUGH FOR HIM TO NOTICE AND THEY WERE TOO BIG FOR BATS.

WE STOPPED AT A CONVENIENCE STORE IN ALAMO. THE BIG BRIGHT LIGHT WAS STILL THERE ONLY BIGGER AND BRIGHTER NOW, AND THE OTHER TWO SMALLER BRIGHT LIGHTS WERE NO LONGER VISIBLE.

WE CONTINUED TO WATCH IT. BECAUSE IT CHANGED POSITIONS, WE KNEW THAT IT WAS NOT A STAR NOR A PLANET, AND IT WAS NOT MOVING AROUND LIKE A CONVENTIONAL AIRPLANE OR HELICOPTER.

WHEN WE WERE TEN MINUTES DOWN THE ROAD WE STOPPED ONE MORE TIME TO HAVE A LOOK AT THE LIGHT AND IT BLINKED OUT!
