UFO SEEN NEAR DOWNTOWN SAN ANTONIO It was after 8:15 in the evening. I was getting into van to pick-up daughter from dance classes. I just entered vehicle and was getting ready to start van and observed a bright flash hit the window. I thought, I had blow car battery or some electrical problem. I leaned forward and saw an object threw van window.

I observed object for a few seconds and exited van. The object was dark or black and had a rectangular shape. I estimated from a lamppost nearby that the object was about 80 ft above me. It was sort of a large trunk like shape. It had multicolored lights that were at the ends of what look like rods that projected out from the structure of ship, like needles in a pincushion. It was about three medium- car lengths long and about two car lengths wide. It did not emit any sound. I walked to a parking lot next to my driveway and that object was motionless for about 5 seconds. The object begin to move in a southeast direction slowly and then made a turn to the northeast and began to rise. I moved to follow it and went to corner of street and major intersection. I looked up and down street to see if anyone else was able to see object. I did not see any persons or vehicles in the area it was very quiet. It then began to move and suddenly seemed to stretch out and then disap! peared from my view into what was northeast direction, After incident, I went back to my van and attempted to start engine but it would not start and the following day or days I removed battery and took it to nearby car radio and video shop. The shop guy stated that battery was blow and he noted that battery cables were fused when he returned with new battery to replace blown battery.

This craft was beautiful and seemed to just float and move with little effort. The effect of it stretching out was like observing in going into a tunnel and then it was gone.
