bright light over Corpus Christi, Texas takes 90 degree evasive action when Navy plane approaches & disappears

On Friday, 08-08-08, my wife and I were fishing in Corpus Christi, Texas near the Naval Air Station. We were on Padre Island fishing the canals off of Whitecap Rd.

It was about 10:00 P. M. when we noticed a bright light coming towards us out of the western clear night sky.

The light seemed to be hovering or floating as it moved slightly side to side as it moved forward. There was absolutely no sound coming from it and we both waited to hear jet engines or a helicopter noise.

Then, as we watched intenly a Navy trainer flew over head and seemed to fly directly towards the hovering light. As we watched, the light or flying machine took evasive action and did a 90 degree maneuver flying straight up into the clear night sky.

We watched the light ascend into the deep blue space until it disappeared.

This was no ordinary flying machine, but I have no doubt it was some kind of advanced flying machine.
