Full Description of event/sighting: My daughter went outside at about 8:30 PM to check on the dogs. She called me to come look at a bright light in the eastern sky. It was located in a normal flight path to the Austin-Bergstrom airport, so we first assumed it was an airplane. Many airplanes pass overhead. This light was so bright, and as we continued to watch it, we could tell it was not standing still - at first it appeared to stand still, but it was probably because it was coming towards us. The light remained very bright, and as the craft moved closer, we could see the projected path of the light. We have never seen a light this bright shining forward on an airplane.
Behind the light were other lights flickering on and off, on what we at first assumed were the crafts wings. At first we though it might have been a helicopter, however, the helicopters seen around here are usually flying lower. By the time the craft was over us, we could see it was definitely not a helicopter, but was probably just an airplane...however, from behind the flickering lights, the craft was shaped like a triangle. Completely black against the dark sky. There was no tail to the craft, just a triangle. Very obvious to anyone who saw it.
The craft seemed to have the same delayed sound as a jet would have as it passed overhead. I can't really say the dogs (5 yr old beagle, 3 yr old Jack Russel Terrier) were acting any different than normal (unless another dog passes by or they find a frog), but because of the time, 8:30 pm, by daughter went out to stop their barking. Once we were both outside the dogs didn't bark again. We live in a typical neighborhood with many dogs, and I don't remember hearing any of the other dogs.
The weather conditions were very clear. For once, there weren't the usual cloudy conditions over the Austin, TX area. We get a lot of chem-trails. We could finally see the stars. My husband has corrected my directions, so the craft would have been coming from the north-east going south east, finally taking a turn towards the airport. Until it began its turn, it appeared to be on a straight path, not zig-zagging around.
I would guess the height would be of a small plane, but higher than a helicopter. We watched the craft for about 5 - 7 minutes. The craft did not seem to have a long front end, which would eliminate a huge jet-liner. We could not see separate airplane-style wings, just the lights extending out from the side, behind which we could see the black triangle shape. The flickering lights were white and blue, and maybe red. The front light was a bright white.
This is the first time I have ever seen anything like this.
Thanks for listening.
Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
