Fairfield, Freestone County, Texas 3 cylinder long gun barrel shiny objects at dusk on Western horizon, there for over 20 minutes

We witnessed 3 cylinder (gun barrel shaped / very long)objects at dusk on the horizon due West of our location. We had just been in town at a business meeting, the meeting ended around 6:30 PM and we drove out to our ranch (we live 6 miles from Fairfield).

It was a beautiful Fall evening and we have a habit of hanging out on the back porch off our kitchen to watch the sunset. My boyfriend and I noticed 3 long streaks in the sky low on the horizon to our West (toward Mexia/Waco). At first we didn't think much of them as we assumed they were jet trails of jets flying in formation.

As we continued to do chores in the backyard, we both noticed that these "trails" or "streaks" did not disappear. In fact, it became obvious that they were solid in shape and very shiny (the setting sun was bouncing off them and they were highly reflective). We decided to take a few pictures of the objects but we did not get much on the digital image. At the time when I was taking the photos, my boyfriend noticed two more similar objects in the South West that looked like they were traveling South to North.

We wanted to get in the truck and get a closer look but we knew they were too far away and we would probably lose them out of sight. Other normal air traffic was visible during the sighting. We see planes, helicopters and satellites all the time and these were not anything we had ever seen before.

We told our family about this early Friday, October 24th - that very same night a news report came on from Channel 8 in Dallas/Ft. Worth about the return of the Stephenville lights in Texas. We are about 90 miles from Stephenville and felt that our sighting might be connected.

The reason I said there were 4 witnesses is because we found out that two other people here in Fairfield saw them too, we just found out about that on Sunday.

**Another person I do not know saw my report on MUFON and said they saw the exact same thing a few counties over, they wanted to contact me**** On Tuesday, October 28th we had another very strange sighting and I will report that seperately. Something is going on in Texas and it really needs to be investigated, it might be military but if so...it is technology never seen before!
