Location: Lubbock, TX
Shape: Disk
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Object with lights seen flying low above area experiencing total power loss.

At 7:49 I received a text from my friend saying something about experiencing about a power outage at a volunteer health clinic he was working at. When I received this text I was driving east on 50th Street toward the direction of this clinic, which was about a mile away. I notice a bright white light directly above the location of where the clinic would be. Upon first glance, being about a mile away, it appeared to be a star but the light began to move erratically in a diagonal path. But the movement was not linear. After some movement it appeared to just hover in one location. As I approached the area more closely, the object might have been mistaken for a drone but it was clear that it was larger and no more than 75 feet in the air. The object is now Northeast of my position so I make a left into the neighborhood to my left. I was able to distinguish multiple lights on the object before losing sight of it as it moved diagonally Northeast. As I navigate th! rough this neighborhood I notice that entire streets are missing power. In a hasty attempt to regain sight of the object I cut through a street with clear visibility but the object has disappeared. As I make a U turn to exit the neighborhood, the power abruptly returns. I couldn’t capture more than a shaky 2 second video of the object that I took while driving which you can barely make out the object if you play in slow motion. You can see that there are two lights visible as it moves.
