Flying saucer descends, possibly lands in North Austin nature trail

At approximately 11:30 AM I was on the balcony of my apartment when I saw a flying object descending in the sky very rapidly. It traveled from west to east over Walnut Creek where it appeared to land on the trail. It definitely went below the tree line.

This was near Brentwood Christian School on North Lamar.

The craft was about 150m from my apartment, approximately 100 feet in the air and looked like it could have had a diameter of maybe 50 feet, but I didn't see the top of it clearly.

It was shaped like an upside-down saucer and it had a clearly metallic surface, like brushed aluminum. It wasn't wobbling or tumbling or anything like that, just a very smooth controlled descent.

I heard no sound at all. I would not have noticed this object if I hadn't already been looking directly at the sky.

Choosing to remain anonymous unless other people come forward with having seen something.
