Two Texas witnesses northbound along I-35 between Austin and Dallas reported watching “two bright, shiny cylinder or cigar-shaped objects with rounded noses and tails” cross the highway ahead of them at approximately 1,000 feet, according to testimony in Case 63509 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness, with his wife in the front passenger seat, was driving between 75 and 80 mph in perfect, blue sky weather in 54 degrees, with 30 to 40 vehicles immediately ahead of them in traffic, at 9:45 a.m. on February 19, 2015.
The couple was north of Georgetown, TX, and had just passed Exit 268.
“The two objects crossed the highway in front of us at an elevation of approximately 1,000 feet,” the witness stated. “They were perfectly in-line with one another—approximately 3,000 feet apart. It’s like they were flying on a stretched out wire—perfectly in-line with one another.”
The witness described the objects.
“They were identical in size, shape, and color. The shape and color of these two objects was contrasted against the blue sky. They were shiny—a bright white. There were no discernible wings, tails, landing gear, propellers, jet engines, windows, or lights. They were two cylindrical or cigar-shaped objects with rounded nose and tails.”
The witness described their movements.
“I believe the objects were two-to-three-miles ahead of us when I first saw them. They crossed just above the tree line traveling from west to east. They were in my field of view for five seconds and traveling at a high rate of speed.”
The witnesses’ wife was able to view the objects for a longer period of time.
“I pointed and asked my wife to look out her passenger window to see if she could see what I was watching. She watched the two objects for another 20 seconds until the topography to the east blocked her view. She said the objects did not alter their course, configuration, elevation, or speed—remaining quickly traveling to the east at a high rate of speed until they were no longer visible from her vantage point.”
