Location: DeKabe, TX
Shape: Circle
Duration: 45 sec.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
1 black object with 2 lites, no sound, hovered nearly over us. Came from the south west, stopped. moved south.

My wife & I were sitting around a small camp fire in the very southeast corner of Red river county. She noticed 2 white lites moving from the southeast to the northwest, toward us. The lites appeared as bright as large aircraft landing lites.

As the lites got closer we could make out a black circle between the 2 lites as there was a moon and a white hase in the night sky. The lites were 180 degrees apart. As it can almost over us we could make out the lites were circuler and pointed in the direction of travel. Just before passing over us the object slowed to a stop. There was no sound. We could not tell how far away the object was but it seemed close, 2 to 3 hundred yards. No detail could be make out on the craft, only blackness. The 2 lites turned approx. 45 degrees counter-clockwise flashed a orange/yellow color and moved slowly away to the south with the lites pointed north. As the craft moved away the lites dimmed and as it moved further away the lites went out, but we could still make out the black circle moving south until it disappared.

I have worked as a quality assurance inspector for major oil companies for the last 30 years. My wife is a senior buyer for manufacture and has 35 years with her company.
