Beam of Darkness from Nose of Jet

This happened in the late 1980's. It was late spring or early summer.

The sky was somewhat overcast yet still bright. My then-boyfriend and I were traveling to Big Bend, TX for a camping trip. We were on the road from El Paso, and we were just outside of Valentine, TX when this happened.

He was at the wheel and I noticed a jet flying in the distance above, moving left to right as we looked through the front windshield. The jet was black. It was close enough to see that it was a jet, but not so close that we could see any logos or other colors that may have been on it.

A beam of darkness shone out from the front end of the jet. The beam was perfectly straight; it looked like it was coming out of the very tip of the nose of the jet. It was just like a beam from a flashlight except that it was a beam of darkness.

My boyfriend saw it too and we talked about it for several minutes while it was in view. We wondered if a "flashdark" had been invented that would project darkness into a lighted space in the same way that flashlights project light into darkness.

When I saw your March report from the family in IL that saw the same thing, I decided to make this report. It was such an odd thing that I've never forgotten it. I was surprised that the IL family's report sounded exactly like what my boyfriend and I saw.
