When: February 17, 2013
Where: Grand Prairie, TX (near Dallas)
What: Boomerang-shaped craft hovers and then vanishes
A pretty unnerving UFO "encounter" happened in the Dallas area yesterday, and was fortunately reported to MUFON. A woman and her daughter were sky watching when they saw a metal boomerang-shaped craft appear, hover for a little bit, and then ascend back into the clouds. She's certain it was a true-blue UFO (not a plane, a bird, etc) and her daughter even drew a picture of the sighting for her later.
I was taking a walk with my daughter(6) who was scootering along the Fish Creek Linear Trail. The sun was setting, clouds were amazingly beautiful. We were observing jets flying by, some with vapor trails and some without. When out of nowhere to the NE a Huge dull metal boomerang shaped craft, approximately 2 to 4 times the size of the jets, descended vertically through the cirrus looking clouds, hovered for approximately 30-40 seconds in plain view, then ascended vertically back through, it could be seen for a little while through the clouds but then disappeared. There was quite a breeze and I saw the clouds slowly flowing by the craft, it was not effected by the wind, it remained stationary. This event was observed by my daughter and I. I immediate knew it was not a plane, balloon, bird, hang glider, optical illusion, or reflection. I had no huge emotions or feelings just curiosity, wanting to see it again or find out more about it. After arriving home I asked my daughter to draw a picture of the object. She drew it exactly how I saw it, same exact shape and she even shaded it with a pencil to show exact color.
Her report prompted a comment from a Plano, TX resident who saw a similar phenomenon:
i have seen the same thing four nights in the past week inbetween 8:30 amd 9:30 p.m. at my boyfriend's apartment in Plano Tx i am beginning to get scared.
