A Texas witness at Sutherland Springs reported watching and photographing a low flying, disc-shaped object, according to testimony in Case 81691 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was loading PVC pipe into the back of his pick-up parked at the diesel pump at the VP gas station and convenience store on Highway at 1:49 p.m. on January 21, 2017, when the incident began. Texas MUFON Field Investigator Kenneth Jordan took the report directly from the witness.
“Witness was facing southeast when he first saw the object to the southeast,” Jordan stated. “Its silver reflective color caught his attention (mid-day, bright sunlight). It was hovering approximately 450 feet southeast of witness's position, about 300-400 feet off the ground, to the right, southeast of Highway 87.”
The witness had no idea what it could be, so he continued to watch it.
The witness took out a cell phone and took four photos as the object flew off toward the north.
“Witness describes the motion of the object as it was flying off as an extended arc, similar to skeet being launched on a gun range. Witness remained in his position behind his truck throughout the sighting. He did not hear, smell or sense anything else from the object. The sighting lasted approximately 45 seconds from when it was first noticed until it flew out of sight. Witness states that later in the day, he felt some anxiety, but does not think this was related to this sighting.”
Jordan closed the case as an Unknown. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be resolved as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
