Reader Submitted ReportHi Frank, My name is Xxx Xxxxx, I am 51 years old and had a UFO encounter along with my then wife Xxxxxx back in approximately 1992, 93 or 94. I am not sure of the exact year or month (possibly September or October).It was late summer or fall.To start with I was born in Odessa, Texas and I have lived here all of my life except for 11 years when I lived in Gardenale, Texas with Xxxxxx which is about 15 miles to the north.
It was during this time that We saw the UFO(s). We were driving home from being in Odessa and the time was approximately 8-10 pm at night. We were driving home on FM 1554 possibly about halfway home when we saw it (them ?). It was a very dark night, I do not remember a moon being out. Any we were driving north when we saw these two sets of red lights in two triangle formations moving from west to east very low and very slow. I remember being awestruck and immediately pulled the car over and Denise and I got out of the car to get a better look at the lights. As I stated and it seems to me that there were two objects, two sets of red lights in a triangle shape, but because it was so dark out we could not make out any possible shape of the craft or object.
We were standing outside the car as they passed right over us. The Altitude of the object(s) seemed to be very low, I would guess at less than 500 feet. I could almost swear that I could have hit them with a rock as they passed over us going towards the east. There was absolute quiet no noise at all as I even think I had turned off the car. I was in total awe at what we saw and had never seen it or anything like it since. (I have seen some other strange lights in the sky over the years but they were always far away or at high altitude.) Other than telling friends and family I have never spoke much about it. Midland, Texas is about 20 miles to the east and Midland international airport is about halfway (10 miles) also in an easterly direction. Even though I wasn't sure what they were, I thought that maybe they were some kind of Black ops helicopters or some other military aircraft as they seemed to be heading towards the airport. We watched until they were out of sight and continued on home.
Ever since then I have believed in UFO and the subject has always held my interest.I like many others believe that the gov't. knows way more than they have been telling us. I truly believe that we are on the cusp of the gov't. finally acknowledging what they know about UFOs.
Anyway the whole point of this e-mail is until recently I have never seen any other reports on this type of sighting.I was watching a show on UFOs ,I think it was on the national geographic or history channel,but there it was the EL Cajon triangle. Since then I have found footage on youtube and other than the lights are arranged differently (the ones I saw had one red light on top and two more below and best of my memory they were equally spaced.) Also even though there was no definite shape to these objects I feel like this was their orientation.
One of my questions is what is the earliest known sighting of this type? Because until I found out about the El Cajon triangle I have never seen this one reported.
My next question is if there is a known aircraft with this light arrangement, I would like to know.
