Full Description & Details

I was born in 1965 and grew up in Huffman,tx. I am writng this description about this sighting today 07/03/2012 because I seen something on the news today that reminded me of it. As I was reflecting on what I saw one night when I was a teenager I remembered what happened in Huffman in 1980. So I decided to look up that incedent and that's why I decided to tell what I saw. My family and I live off farm road 1485, Huffman was a very small town then and still is. I actually lived probaly less than five miles from where the Landrum sighting was in 1980 and traveled that particular road everyday either going to or coming from school. It was the only way to get to my house then. Anyway I'm not sure what month it was or what year it was that I saw this ufo to much time has passed. But I do think it was november or december. I was ateenager at the time and there wasn't much of anything to do in Huffman,so I used to set on our front porch swing alot. One night I was on the porch swing it wasn't very late from what I can remember maybe 10 ish and something rose up from behind the trees. It was a very large orange glowing round object. It hovered above the trees for maybe 30 seconds and made a couple of really fast irratic moves and then shot straight up and was gone at a really high rate of speed. I was very scared and went into the house immedietly I told my brother and he said he had seen somethings like that from time to time. I decided to put it out of my and get some sleep that night. The next morning my curiosity got the better of me, so I got my horse and decided to go for a ride to see if I could find an explanation for what happened. At the end of our street was what I call a right of way, it was a area of woods that had been cleared to run power lines through and it went on for a few miles. And that's where I thought the object rose from, so I rode my horse down there. There was a trail I used to ride to go to my friends house so I started following it. I had never been down that trail that far, but I think I rode about a mile when I came across three patches of burned eatrh. These three patches were cicular and in the formation of a triangle. when I approached theses patches i remember my horse became very nervous which was very unusual for him because he was a very calm and gentle horse. The longer I stayed in the area the more nervous he became so I decided that it was best I take him and go. Till this day I still don't have an explanation of what I saw and have no idea what made those burned circles.

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

No I don't think so.

Witness Background

I am 46 years old and I'm a veterinary technician.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I didn't know that much about ufos back then, I was a teenager. But I do believe that there are other beings out there and that we aren't solely alone.
