Location: Terrell, TX
Shape: Disk
Duration:3 minutes
bright pulsating disk, appeared to fall from sky then stopped, hovered and moved north out of sight.

While on my back porch at 1:15am march 8, 2008, a bright star looking object came falling down from the sky with the appearance of a meteor but without the tracer fire that would typically follow. The object then came to a gentle stop at what appeared to be maybe a couple thousand feet up at maybe two or three miles northwest of my house. I instantly grabbed the binoculars and got my wifes attention. Now that the object is stopped it begins to shine red, blue and white but not like a plane. It was changing colors rapidly and it was twice as bright as a plane and the whole object was lit up. As I looked through the binoculars I could clearly see a disk shaped light with very distinct edges. (It looked round to the naked eye.) My wife agreed when she looked at the object. The ufo then began moving gradually to the north and dropped down behind some trees out of our sight. That was the last we saw of the ufo. Our house is in a flight path from dallas so we see planes all night long. My wife and I can assure you this was niether a plane, helicopter or balloon.(blimp) The brightness of this object was such that surly others must have experienced it as well. I hope this is helpful and hope to here other reports.
