|UFO flies into dark cloud and disappears.
I was on my way to an afternoon appointment, and I stopped at my subdivision's entrance, which intersects a very busy street in the Stone Oak area. It was a typical South Texas day, hot as hell, and clear blue, but for a couple dark clouds. We're in big sky country and I just glanced up as a I waited for a break in traffic to merge and I saw plane flying from east to west.
No, not a plane. That's not a plane. I'm used to seeing aircraft in San Antonio, with all the army bases. I know what most large military craft look like and they also fly very low. But this was different. This was cigar shaped kind of like a sleek Zeppelin, silver, no lights, no visible insignia.
I'm watching traffic I think. There's no one behind me so I lose many opportunities to merge so I can continue to identify the flying object I've become so drawn to. I wonder if anyone else can see it. It's not a plane. It's not a military plane or drone. It's flying low enough to see it's not a plane. It's just cruising and I'm watching it and it flies right into the only dark cloud in the very bright blue sky and never comes out the other end.
Not possible. I don't pull over. I don't want to know. No one is behind me still and I merge into traffic and begin to drive but keep my eyes on the cloud. The cloud remains and the object never comes out the other end. I stop at a near light and the object still doesn't come out. I'm stopped next to McDonalds. The object still doesn't come out. That's not a plane. It's not normal but I need to keep moving. I know I do. I keep my appointments, I tell my immediate family and it's just another unexplained sighting that they think is really cool but dismiss after dinner.
When I was younger, I didn't know any better and would report these sightings to police. Now I know to report some to UFO centers and keep moving. I am surprised by this one though, that it didn't make the news, that no one saw it. It was so huge in such a bright sky, the middle of the day. I don't think anyone saw it. I saw the world go on like normal. I don't think they all saw it. I don't know how they couldn't have. It flew into that dark cloud and that was it, its tomb, it never came out.
