Full Description & Details
I was preparing to go to work. On this particular morning I was running late. I usually have a cigarette before hopping in the shower. As I lit up my cigarette, I noticed a bright flickering light in many colors at the top left corner of my eye. I stood there in amazement watching this object, just mesmerized. I immediately turned on the video on my cellphone and starting recording. This was not the planet Venus. This was not a helicopter or airplane. We have many small airports in our area and a large airport to the north of me (IAH). I am used to seeing and hearing planes on a daily basis. This awesome object was hovering in the Northwest. It had many different colors...blue,green,red,orange,white all swirling together,flickering, intensifying then fading out. I wanted to keep recording but I was already late to work. I turned off the camera and hesitated and thought about this for a sec. Then I said screw it, I turned on the video again. Glad I did! A second one appeared! I was just in awe. The second one was just north at an angle from the 1st. This one also flickered but briefly and was moving. It appeared then disappeared. Almost like it was watching and waiting for the 1st one. I recorded for about a minute until the 1st one started to disappear. I went in to take my shower. Approximately 20 minutes I was finished, got my stuff all together, walked out the door. I looked up in the same direction of the object. This time there was a helicopter flying in a circular flight pattern in the same area. I could tell it was a helicopter because of the searchlight and I could hear it. I was so excited about this event that I woke up my wife, (boy was she pissed). Mind you, this all started at 5am in the morning. No one believes me. I do not care. I have it on video. People pass it off as a star,plane or helicopter. I know what I saw. If anyone out in the Tomball/Magnolia/Pinehurst area witnessed the same thing, PLEASE contact me at: email@example.com. I am trying to post my video on youtube or send it to MUFON. I am not really computer/tech saavy and I am trying to figure out how to do so..........ART.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have always believed in intelligent life. This is my 3rd sighting in 30 years. The universe is a big place. The earth is a big place. There are thousands of witnesses and video proof around the world(as well as fakes). Are all these people liars? I am also a religious person who believes in Jesus. The Bible is there, The witnesses were there. There are cities and rivers and mountains that are still here that were mentioned long ago. Why can't there be intelligent life. So....my question is, why do people not believe the truth when the proof and facts are in their faces. I mean, we as man made it to the moon and continue to reach for the stars. I believe we are way behind in space travel and technology.
