Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Mesquite, TX
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 2 Minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Bright White/Yellow object seen in sky no FFA lights.

Last Night about 9:00pm CST I was taking the dog out for a walk. I always look up at the stars to see whats out. There were many planes in the air beacause we are close to DFW and Love Field. I also am familiar with the flight patterns and what planes look like at night.

As I was looking up there was a very bright yellow light moving at the speed of a normal plane. Nothing spectacular, only bizarre thing that kept my eyes fixed on it was there were no FFA lights on it. Nothing was blinking at all. It also made no noise that I could hear. It just stayed a solid white/yellow color.

Usually as a planes landing lights move away from you they dim. This object stayed the same brightness from directly above me to as far as I could see it move across the sky, from NE to SW. It was just very different from the other 5 planes that I could see. Could it have been a helicopter? I don't think so it was pretty high but unusually bright and with no noise. There were planes much higher than this object and I could make them out with no problem. Most of all because of their FFA lights. This was something different.

((NUFORC Note: We have amended the date of the incident to March 8th, since the report was submitted at noon on March 9th. We believe the witness refers to the FAA, the Federal Aviation Administration, not the FFA, which might be the Future Farmers of America. PD))
