Long line of green rectangular lights in the hills of southwest Austin

At 10:20 p.m. on May 9, 2005, I took my dog out into the backyard and sat down on a chair on my patio. My backyard faces a street with a large empty lot across that street; I live on the outskirts of Austin out in the southwestern hills area where there is a lot of vacant land.

As I sat watching my dog, I heard a small chirping sound and looked up. Just across the street was a long line of green rectangular lights hovering about 60-100 feet over the vacant lot. The object was close enough to me where, if it had been a blimp, I think I could have heard the engine which is quite noisy on a blimp.

After the initial small chirping sound, I didn't hear anything else coming from it.

I quickly grabbed my dog, ran inside, locked the door, turned off all the lights, and sat down on my couch shaking and praying that whatever it was was not interested in me or my dog. After about five minutes, I sneaked over to my window and slowly raised one slat on the blind to peek out and it was gone.

I peeked out several times that night and the following nights and never saw it again (to my relief, I might add!).

I wrote down the date and time this happened to eventually report it to someone.
