An amber pulsating bell shaped object

It was early March 2011, and it was the last day of my son’s visit. My son is a helicopter pilot in the military. Around 10:30pm, I decided to go to bed, and said goodnight to my son who was still watching television. I stood in front of my bedroom window gazing out as I always do before getting ready for bed.

Coming from the southeast, I saw a commercial airline preparing to land at DFW International Airport, I live about 45 minutes to an hour from the airport, depending on traffic.

Off to my right of the commercial airline, I saw an object I have never seen before in my life. I ran into the family room where my son was and told him to come outside with me, and we walked outside. I showed him where the commercial airline was, and then pointed to the object on my right.

I asked him what is that, he said he did not know he has never seen anything like it. It was somewhat shaped like a bell, and the whole thing was lit up with amber light, and pulsating. It was not moving very fast.

The only reason I saw it for about 30 seconds was because for some unknown reason I went back into the house, asking myself at the same time why I was going into the house instead of watching where it was going, but I could not stop myself, and I went straight to bed, and to sleep immediately.

I do not know if my son followed me in or not. I remember it as if it was yesterday, my son does not remember any of this happening. He said I must have been dreaming it. I know I was not dreaming it. I saw it, he saw it, and I cannot explain why this happened.
