What I saw September 10th 2007 8:53pm.

It was a typical Monday, I went to my regular state job which was between 7am to 4pm. After that I went to my part time job. There was nothing to my mind that was out of the ordinary. It was a boring day at my regular job and slow at my part time job since there was hardly any customers. After getting out of work I went to Target to buy a coke and Doritos flirted with the cashier and went on to the bus stop that takes me to the corner of Wickersham and Oltorf. This area is at a high point and you can see the downtown area and it’s sky line. There was a thunderstorm also moving in and was coloring the sky red then lightning would flash.

As I was walking to my apartment I saw something flying over the downtown Austin area heading south. I was standing in the middle of the side walk between Oltorf and the High Point Apartments looking at this thing because it was slowly making it’s way south and it was flying to low and too slow to be a plane. When I thought it could be a blimp it flashed several colors of red, yellow, blue, in a multiple square formation. A helicopter with one spot light was flying south and keeping it’s distance from the object. I would say it flew above the Ben White HWY area and it was flying higher then the object I was looking at. That was when it reversed it’s direction and headed north east. (It did not make a U-turn). I needed a witness but nobody was walking near by. I called my sister via cel phone but did not answer. Then at 8:55pm I called a co worker who was outside her house and told her to look south and she let out a big gasp she yelled, “what is that”! She lives in north Austin. We stayed on the phones looking at this thing. As it moved back to the downtown area it moved around the downtown area and moved north east. It then picked up speed and moved faster and out of my sight. We stayed on the phone for a while more reveling at what we saw and then ended our call. I told my roommate of what I saw. He said he believed me and I told him if he were to come in that night and said he just saw what I just saw I would not believe him. I am typing this because other people have come forward in the past on a web site called My co-worker and the people who saying they saw the same thing I saw is more then I want to think about. Why it was not in the news I do not know. About an hour later my best friend called to talk about a possible hunting trip for December. I did not talk about what I saw. To me it is now the difference of living my regular way of life. I do not do drugs, don't drink, nor was I on any medication. I do not consider myself wanting any special attention from strangers. I will never mention this to anybody even if the subject is about UFO’s.

I do not know where to go from here. I think UFO’s exist I just would never think I would ever see one myself. This to me is just plain mind numbing. I don’t want to think about, talk about, let alone write about what I saw that night. This will go as far as I would want to go.
