UFO Sighting Report


May, 1978


Round Rock, Texas, United States


Back in 1978 after dinner I went running around the neighborhood as I have always done (I was a runner in High School). As I approached a house on the corner a huge ship rose from behind the house and hovered. It made now sound. I glided above the row of houses as if following me and then vanished.

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



3 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was round and a little wider then the house but look more massive then the house. It made no sounds. I was somewhat flat looking from bottom to top with a rim that separated the bottom and top but it seem to be part of the entire piece at the same time. The lights came from under this rim but spaced apart and slightly tilted inward. I remember only two colors..a soft lime green and orange amber. I can draw it perfect. It was like nothing you could describe as far as how huge it was to a 17 year old.

Size of Object(s)

It was as wide as the home I think about 70 ft. wide at the rim and 30 ft. tall from the flat top to bottom but the rim was the widest.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Subdivision off HYW 620. Behind the back roll of houses that backed up to un undeveloped area. We use to cut through it from school.

Full Description & Details

I lived in a small subdivision off HWY 620. It was near Round Rock High School. Behind the houses was undeveloped land.

It was a nice warm evening for a run. I was a runner in high school (Round Rock High) and I would run every night around our sub-division for a few laps.

On this evening after dinner maybe around between 9:30 and 10:30PM I left my house on Glenwood (1008 Glenwood) and headed to the left and around the loop of the area. I ran from Glenwood to Brentwood and then to Tanglewood. Tanglewood and Brentwood was a dead end and there was a house on the corner of the two streets. As I was turning the curve I witnessed a very large round ship rise from behind the house on the corner. I was in a daze as I watched is slowly rise and hover above the house for about 1 min. It did not make a sound of any kind. I remember the ship as if it were in front of me now. The lights were of two colors and were a soft green and some where amber in color. There was a rim and the lights seem to come from under it. I was only about 30 yards from the front of the house on Tanglewood to the backyard of the house. It was larger then the house it seemed. So I was about 40 - 50 yards from it. But it seemed that I was under it. I remember I was in a frozen state and I began running faster down Tanglewood but kept my eye on it. It moved slowly about the houses down Tanglewood like it was following me and I believed it was following me. I ran faster it went faster. I was terrified. As I got closer to the next bend I ran at top speed and when I glance behind I saw it turn on its side and was gone in a flash.

I run into my house and told my foster dad and mom about it. My dad said it was probably a helicopter but I knew what I saw and no one believe me. I hide in my closet for many nights thinking they would come back. I have spent my life wondering about it and the few people I told of course just think I am a kook. But I am now searching for evidence of this night.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Nope it was basically on the ground in front of me 50 or 60 yards away.

Witness Background

I am 52 years young. I have had a career the last 30 years in sales and business development in the Cosmetic Industry with such companies as Christian Dior and Calvin Klein and have owned my own consulting businesses. I have 2 years of college. I have traveled much of the world and I play golf. I now live in Austin again and now have a consultant business and manage commercial property. I am beginning to write my first short story of this night.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was 17 years young. I did not know about any such things. After I saw it I hide for days and stopped running for a long time and only with my dad for a very long time as I was afraid it would come back for me...I was terrified. Now, I know there are other out there and just waiting for them to reveal themselves to all.

Other Comments

I can't get anyone to believe me but I know people in those houses had to have seen it through the windows and the few houses that would have been were it lifted from. 1001 Tanglewood. I am looking for someone to find me to confirm my story of so long ago. I can have it drawn and added.
