On July 7, 2005 at about 11:30 at night, I noticed a bright light that sped across the sky, and was visible for a couple seconds.

I really did not have a clear view, or I wasn't 100% sure this was a UFO.

As I was sitting in my seat and looking out at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport in Texas, I saw a light in the sky, it just appeared nearly suddenly, and within 4 seconds it was gone. You could say I saw it, blinked, and it was gone. It looked like it was at a high altitude.

We were on board American Airlines flight #2262 (a Boeing 757), enroute DFW-STL, at gate C11 awaiting gate departure. It was about 11:30, probably a little before that.

I knew what I saw was too fast for any plane, even a military jet. I could only see a white light, no other color lights. I know it couldn't of been a shuttle because those have been grounded since early 2003. Whatever it was, it looked like it was going to escape the atmosphere very shortly.

There were no stars that were visible, since there were many lights at the airport, so I know I didn't mistake it with a satellite. It was too low to be in space yet, but getting close to escaping the atmosphere. The light was easily about 35,000 feet, I would have to say anywhere from 50,000 to 150,000 feet. I'm sorry I cannot be specific on the altitude of the aircraft, or whatever it was.

If I had to take a guess, I would have to say it was around 80,000 feet. Again, the date was July 7, 2005, and the time was probably about 11:25 P.M. We were at gate C 11 (terminal C gate C 11) on the ground at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
