Location: Katy, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Circular light seen possible close by and then further away during morning.

Witness age 12 was sitting at breakfast table and observed a light through the window blinds. This was in a East direction. She had sat there many times before without seeing lights.

On this occasion, the light caught her attention. Light appeared as a Yellow White light that was stationary.

Witness moved head while sitting to get a better view throught the window blinds. The blinds were about 1/3 to 1/2 open at the time. The witness said the object was above the one story building next door. It sat stationary for 15 seconds then it took off in northernly direction in a diagonal upward direction. It was gone within 1 sec and the observer stated the light left a visual trail during that departure. Possible visual after-effect. Witness claims no head movement during this departure sequence as best as she could remember.

The witness reported no change in the size or shape during the entire visual encounter. Object remained circular in shape and witness describes as a "light shinning at you" appearance. This description was further clarified by the witness as a briht center with rays of light all around it. Her impression was that this object was close and it was estimated to be about 300 feet away and about 25 ft above the ground and about 2 ft in diameter based on similar size objects like a fan on a trailer nearby at the same distance but only 8 ft off the ground. The witness then went up to the window to open the blinds futher and then looked and saw nothing more for one minute.

The same color light was seen again toward the southeast but appeared smaller (about a bbsize at arms length) and assumed to be further away and still above the building. This light was stationary for two seconds and then just blinked out.

No other objects seen after this.
