Location: Weslaco/Mcallen, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:40 MIN
My friend was driving west on expressway 83 while talking on cell phone with me. She noticed a huge bright light in the sky towrds Mcallen Texas to the west. She told me to go outside to see it. I was in Weslaco, Texas about 7 miles away. I noticed it and took out my binoculars to observe it. I saw a bright white light with small red dot in the middle. Light was stationary for about 15-20 minutes. I called my mom who lives five miles away to the west. She also saw the same thing. My son also saw it earlier about 10 minutes before I did. My friend called me later and told me she observed the light from her home with binoculars very clearly. She said she saw a bright light with yellowish lights in the middle and some kind of mist/smoke coming out from it. I must say the light was about 15-=20 miles away from us. After observing it for 15-20 minutes,the light slowly moved towards the west. I lost sight of it due to trees etc. I have never seen anthing like it before. Not even the others who saw it. I wonder if anybody else saw this light. I called our local tv station and they said nobody had reported anything. A plane ? monrning star ? I don't know. Anyone out there saw this light ?
