Location: League City, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
Two stationary, silent, super bright white spheres about 100-200 feet in the air.

On FM517 westbound, my son and I noted 2 extremely bright balls of light to the northwest, approx 2 miles away (estimated by using the lights of an elementary school located in that area.) The lights were about the height of a radio tower, with one appearing several feet higher than the other. There are several radio and cell phone towers in the general vicinity but none in that area and all the others have red lights. There is an interstate in that direction as well--but it lights were visible (and are orange sodium arc lamps anyway.) I have never seen this type of bright, pure white light before. The two spheres appeared to be stationary. They did not resemble spotlights (like from a helicopter) or any other common light source we could think of. We watched them intently for 30 seconds or so from an unobstructed view, though they were visible through the trees for approx 2 minutes as we drove. We did not note any mechanical sounds or aircraft in the area.
