1993 : Harlingen, Texas


Harlingen, Texas Object Shoots Across The Sky Then Stops

Date: 1993
Time: Evening

Another object seen over Harlingen skies.

Truly incredible, but in 1993, I saw something that has absolutely baffled me up to this day. I have never written about this on any web site (I've wanted to, but felt that people would say "oh, not another one of those BS UFO stories), but have spoken to a few friends about it. After reading the other account which occurred in Harlingen, Texas back in the 1970's, I thought it was time for me to tell my account as well.

Like I mentioned earlier, this occurred in 1993 one night while sitting in my car talking to my girlfriend (on the then cell phones which attached to the floorboard of the vehicle), I was also looking up at the sky for no apparent reason and surely not looking for objects in the sky, when suddenly an object shot across the sky from my right periphery to at about my 11 o'clock, stopped for a few seconds, then shot back across to my right periphery where it disappeared when it moved over the roof of the car. Now, the object in question was not as it were near the ground, but high above - how high? I wish new, but scarred the heck out of me, though. And, since this time, I have been fascinated by the thought that maybe we are not alone, and that maybe perhaps these stories we hear so often about UFOs are perhaps true.

For those of you interested, during the mid 1990s, this area in which I live also had a daylight encounter with I suppose a UFO. It was on the local evening news. Apparently, there was something flying around our skies that got the military's attention, because an F-4 fighter was dispatched. The news reporter was shown talking to someone who had apparently filmed part of the unknown object in the daylight sky. The interviewee stated that as he was filming the moving object, a jet airplane was seen following it. Several co-workers who were not aware of the situation stated that they had seen a relatively low flying military jet flying around the mid-valley. My father who saw the news broadcast said to me that the plane was an F-4 (he's a airplane buff). In this part of the world we are not accustomed to seeing many military jet aircraft flying around, especially low flying. Well, now that this has been let off my chest, I hope others believe my account of what happened.

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
