Hitchcock, Texas Blue Light

Date: August 9, 2004
Time: 10:00 a.m.

I was having coffee and reading when I glanced toward the sky, expecting rain. At about ten am I caught a glimpse of a blue light crossing over head at about ten feet from the ground, as I watched it pass by at a slow speed it blinked like a strobe light. The thing I don't understand is that I couldn't see it unless the light was on. When it blinked off, there was nothing there, not even a shadow on the ground.

This event took about 10 - 15 seconds to end, and then it went through the tree line and was blocked from view by the trees. I would like to know more about this as this is my first experience with this type of phenomenon.

I then heard a voice behind me asking, "What the hell was that?" I turned around and my neighbor was standing there with a cup in hand, ready for coffee no doubt, I then asked her what she saw and she repeated the same as I saw. Thanks,

Additional Information:

Weather: Cloudy, overcast, rainy looking.

Location: Near Hwy 6 and Delany Rd. just appeared overhead, at 10 feet above ground. Movement: On a north west direction, very slow speed. Level altitude, no weaving or bobbing.

Area of Sighting: I live in a R.V Resort Park and it is about 15 miles from the nearest airport, I did not see any planes in the area, nor did I hear any sound to indicate the presence of a plane. It is a secluded area from any major city or high way.

UFO description: It was about six inches long and 2 inches round with rounded ends, it blinked like a strobe light, when the light was off, I couldn't see any thing, the light was a florescent blue.

Additional witness: Refuses to make a statement, says she don't want anyone to think she's nuts. I tried to explain to her about being anonymous about it, still refused.

That's About all I can think of at this time, thanks.

Thank you to the witness for this report.
