My story happened in December, 2003 in Midland, Texas. It was a Sunday night and my boyfriend at the time was taking me home. I know it had to be close to midnight since I had a curfew back then.
I remember we were driving down a residential street and I saw a bright white light up in the sky. I thought it was a little odd, so I kept my eye on it, but did not say anything. It was directly ahead, so we would soon be passing whatever it was. I was thinking it was a street light because it was so bright and so low to the ground.
As we got closer, I realized there were two other lights. We crossed the intersection of one of the main roads and back into a residential area. The lights were right above a vacant lot next to some homes.
I told my boyfriend to stop. He pulled over and we looked in amazement. He killed the engine and rolled the window down. I felt like it was a dream because it was so hard to believe I was actually looking at a UFO.
It was wedge shaped, like a 3-D triangle with bright white lights on each of the three points. It was hovering above the lot. I am not sure of the size; it was not huge, but I remember thinking it was very low to the ground for any known aircraft besides a helicopter, which it definitely was not.
The aircraft made a very quiet, low-frequency humming sound. If you didn’t see it, you would not have noticed it just from the sound. It slowly began to move off to the southeast and then was gone.
I was so shocked. As soon as I got home, I told my dad. He and I got in his truck and drove back to try and see it. I remember seeing a light breaking through the clouds and had a moment of excitement that my dad was going to see it too, but then it broke the clouds and I realized it was a jet.
The UFO was gone and I have no idea what it was. It hovered low to the ground (I would say the height of two maybe three telephone poles stacked on top of each other) -- way too low for a plane or jet, which cannot hover or be stationary in the sky.) It was not a helicopter because the sound of a helicopter would be loud and familiar to me. And the shape was not of any aircraft I know of. I will always wonder what it was I saw that day.
