Bright White light seen moving across Houston nighttime skies.

On the evening of June 10, 2008, at aprox. 10:30 pm, as I was out with my dogs in the front yard of our home, I witnessed a large, bright white light moving across the suburban Houston, Texas sky from the northwest, heading into the southeast, at a level of about a mile or so high. This object did not display ANY sort of a tell-tale sign of any know aircraft to our American skies (i.e. no blinking lights, no red or green lights, nothing). The object was not moving very quickly, but at a steady pace across the night sky I quickly ran inside to get my wife to witness this event. She in turn came out to the yard and also observed the light as I have described. The object took about a minute to cross the sky above us, so it was not even moving as fast as the planes that do cross our skies daily. As we both watched, hoping that this object would display SOMETHING to let us know that it was man made, we observed the object become a bit brighter in the sky, and then with the blink of an eye, it was gone.

We both turned and looked at each other in disbelief, and both of us said almost simultaneously, “It made no sound.” As we were watching the object go across the sky, I even made a small comment out loud: “I don’t hear any engines. If it’s a plane, we should be able to hear the sound of the engines.” There was NO SOUND.

My wife was a bit shocked and perplexed, as she has not had any “encounters” that she has ever told me of. For me, this was one of many “sightings” that I have witnessed above the Houston skies. Nothing that truly warranted a report…until now.
