A Texas witness reports observing and following a triangle-shaped object near Houston that appeared as though it was being chased by military aircraft, according to November 21, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was a passenger in a vehicle traveling along East Sam Houston Parkway. The object was first seen just before they crossed the Houston Ship Channel.
"It stayed motionless for about 30 seconds, then very quickly shot ahead and maintained its position at the new location," the witness stated. "Distance gained in this very quick 'jump' was in my calculated opinion, approximately 20 - 30 miles."
The two got off the highway at Pasadena.
"We kept going south with our eyes still on target, where it was in the southwestern part of the sky in the direction of Hobby Airport, where it appeared to be hovering and maintaining its position."
At the Southmore and Preston intersection, they pulled into a parking lot and got out of the vehicle for a better look.
"It was at this location as well, that I called the Pasadena Police Department telling them of the craft. The dispatcher then said that he would notify the patrol cars on the street. Within five minutes of placing this call, three Air Force planes were seen in the vicinity of the craft, and at the same time, the search lights from Ellington Air Force Base were scanning the sky. The searchlights lasted for only a few moments, as I believe they did not want to alarm the populace due to the fact that I believe that most people, when seeing search-lights, would instinctively look to where they were pointing."
Then the witness says Air Force jets arrived.
"When the Air Force planes arrived - C-5, and C-17, plus an unidentifiable high altitude plane which appeared to be signaling with a very bright white light (pulsing,) the craft descended in position, after emitting a very bright, white light around itself. It was here, that you could discern the shape of the craft.
"It was triangular in nature. With a reddish/orange circular light located at the top left position of the craft. At this time also, another man was coming out of the pawn shop on the corner, and asked what we were doing, and we pointed up to where the craft was. He was on the phone with his girlfriend and was telling her about the triangle he was now observing. Another man came out of the pawnshop, and asked what we were looking at, and when he saw it, he first said 'that’s a cell phone tower,' but when it moved, and he saw the triangle shape, he got pretty nervous and went back into the pawn shop."
The triangle craft then seemed to disappear, and then reappear.
"From one of the planes, there appeared to be a giant signaling light which was pulsating sporadically, as if it was trying to communicate with the craft. This plane was stationary, while the other two planes maintained a circling position, which I estimate to have been at about just outside of a mile from the craft.
"Then, with a very quick 'jump,' the craft changed positions and was in the southeastern sky approximately 20 – 25 miles away, with the Air Force following to its new coordinates. As we followed the direction it was going, it would suddenly disappear, and reappear at another location, seemingly using a N,W,E,S coordinate grid."
