'Teardrop' UFO 500 feet over LaPorte, Texas
by Roger Marsh
A LaPorte, Texas, witness reports a black, teardrop-shaped object flying 500 feet above local home tops and throwing out sound like "high current electricity" at 11:05 p.m. on January 23, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
No images or video were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 25, 2011.
"When I looked up I saw a black flying object, shaped like a teardrop but with angular wing like protrusions pointing backwards," the witness stated. "Three very bright orange lights were facing forward. Two of the lights were on each side of the craft facing forward and one orange light was in the middle or nose area of the craft."
The witness described the sound.
"The craft made a sound that was like high current electricity, a loud humming sound. The craft's sound was like no sound that I have ever heard before from a man made flying machine."
The craft was flying just 500 feet above the local roof tops.
"The forward velocity seemed to be approximately 60 mph.The craft was traveling in a straight orientation. I saw this flying craft for approximately three minutes. I lost sight of the object after it passed overhead and continued north. I could hear the low humming sound longer than I could see the flying craft."
La Porte is a city in Harris County, Texas, population 31,880.
