Location: San Antonio, TX
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Strange moving light.

This strange light was first seen in the western sky about 45 degrees above horizon. It appeared to be an airplane but there was no sound and then it suddenly descended very quickly and then, just as quickly, it started ascending.

For a few seconds it was rising and falling and twisting and turning erratically. The light was white but would fade to a reddish color at times. It moved to the northeast. It did not go directly over me. I would guess that it was over Loop 1604 and I-10 when I last saw it. As it traveled, the light would sometimes not be visible but would soon appear further along in the direction it was travelling. The strange motion is what caught my eye and is the only reason this light was unusual.
