Location: Katy, TX
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
My son and I watched a triangular shaped craft several thousand feet in the air that remained stationary but rotated or gyrated.

My son and I were hanging Christmas lights on the outside of his house. I was holding the ladder while he was securing the lights on the gutter around his front door. The sky was clear except for a few high level clouds. I heard a passenger jet flying overhead and looked up to see it pass. The part of the sky I was looking at was "framed" by the house structure so when I looked up I only had a brief sighting of the jet but my eye suddenly caught the outline of some other kind of craft that appeared to be much higher than the jet I had just seen. I looked at it for a second not knowing what it was but trying to identify it. As I was watching it, it remained stationary but appeared to rotate or move constantly in one place. As it moved or rotated I could see that it was triangular, in appearance.

I asked my son if he saw it and he said yes. He, at first, thought it was a satellite, star or a planet but after watching it for awhile, we both noticed it wasn't moving across the sky. Unfortunately, we didn't have any binoculars or other means to view it any closer. I asked him how he would describe it and he said it looked either triangular or rectangular.

We both looked away for a few minutes to gather some other lights to hang on the house and when we looked up to view the object again, it had vanished. We could not locate the object again. I remember commenting to my son that if it had been a satellite or planet, it wouldn't have simply vanished.
