With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Full Description of event/sighting: I was passing through the area north and west of Brownwood while driving toward Lubbock, Texas, from Austin, Texas. It was in the late evening, around 9:00 pm. Please note this was mid-summer and at 9:00 pm one could still see quite well, it was dark enough for headlights, but the outline of trees on the horizon could be seen. I was not alone, I had a passenger who saw it, too. I have a habit of constantly looking around me outside the vehicle when I'm driving. Suddenly in the sky to the right, outside the passenger's window I saw a light come on. It was above the horizon, above the tree line.

Nothing was in front of, behind, or below the light. It was as if the light was floating in the sky. This was just the beginning. In a matter of seconds a second light came on a short distance to the left and above the other light. Then at equal intervals a third, fourth, and finally fifth light came on. These lights formed a line approximately a hundred feet across and at approximately a 10 degree angle to the horizon. As we watched, the lights then went off in reverse sequence. We were beside ourselves in awe. The lights had no visible contact with any building or craft. I know this because we could still see the outline of trees against the sky. These lights were above the trees, and appeared to be floating above the trees.

Suddenly a light appeared ahead of us above the horizon, above the tree line and the sequence started over. The lights would come on one by one, and then go off one by one. The lights were the color of a cigarette in the dark, an orange yellow.

For the next ten or fifteen minutes, as we were traveling northwest, we watched this strange display of lights in various positions in the sky. First to our right, then ahead of us, then back to the right. It seemed as if some invisible craft was moving around us, flashing its lights off and on.

I will swear to the authenticity of this event. In fact, about three months after the sighting, I was watching a documentary on UFO sightings and I saw the same exact thing. Someone else had seen the same type of lights in the sky and had video-taped them. I called my friend, he turned on the TV and we discussed the fact that we had witnessed the same type of event.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
