I was on my way home from a fishing trip in Sargent Texas, I was on FM 2611 RD Before you get to the Sweeny exit, I was heading toward Lake Jackson to HWY 288 N on my way back to Houston. I'm not sure of amount of miles down FM 2611 I had traveled after I had turn off of HWY 457. ďIts pitch black where you could hardly see your hand in front of your face, all I know is I had not made it to the Sweeny left intersection.

There were no clouds in the sky at that time. Just before approaching a sharp turn of the road the car lights started blinking and then the car just shut off, I coasted in to the curve of the road and pulled the cars parking break. I am in a 1991 Volvo wagon that runs like a dream. I thought the battery cable had come loose. I am female so I got frighten and grabbed my cell phone because I didnít want to get out of the car with out letting someone know what had just happened, I didnít want to be alone out in the pitch black and my cell phone has a bright light on it. Before I could open my cell phone a bluish glow started shining through the trees across from the road where I was parked it would be to my left if you were sitting in my car.

At first I thought it was a car coming up behind me and I panicked because my car is read and black and I was frighten that the vehicle behind me would take the curve to fast and run into the back of me but the light wasnít coming from behind me it was coming from across the street. I watched as this bluish light rose up from behind a thick patch of trees in front of me. The object was a blue ball of translucent light, with the middle of the ball slightly darker then the outer part. It made no sound and it just rose up from out of the wooded area across from the highway where my car stopped. I couldnít move, and that was mostly because I was astonished. The ball rose up sort of slowly but as it got higher it speeded up it didnít deviate from the direction it was going, which was straight up. The higher it got the fast it went until it just disappeared after that all I could see was stars.

I sat in my car for a few seconds and I noticed that there wasnít a sound to be heard at all. Then I turned the car key which was still in the ignition and the car started right up. I broke a lot of speed restrictions last night getting home all I wanted to see was my 59 north exit sign heading home.
