I must preface, I am somewhat nervous to have to explain something of this nature. Never in a million years would I have thought it remotely possible in reality.
Last night my son and I were driving on hwy 36 around 11:30pm on our way to my mothers house in Coppers Cove TX. In the distance we noticed a very bright flashing light. My first thought was that it could be a plane, helicopter or a signal tower with unusual bright lights.
We continued to watch it when suddenly it was RIGHT ABOVE our SUV! There are few words that will effectively relay to anyone that was not there just how large and utterly surreal looking this thing was. It was shaped like an octagon with flashing lights on all sides It looked like a building floating in the sky. It has depth/structure to it that's hard to put into context.
I was shocked and as a mother I became fearful of this thing, which could be a potential threat considering how close it was.
So I stepped on the gas to get away from it. I was driving way over the speed limit and not looking back when it occurred to us to take a picture or video. My son was in the back filming what was left of it at that point. Both my son and I were just floored by what was happening.
I'm extremely disappointed we did not think soon and capture the object in solid form. When we first saw the object it was about 400 meters above us, close enough for us to realize its enormous size, hexagonal shape, and it is grey/concrete color.
By the time my son had pulled out a camera and moved to the back of the car to film, it appeared to have distanced itself subtaintally from us, at least a few miles away.
