Reagan, TX

Sighted on Thursday 31. January 2002

Shape: Light | Duration: Apprx 5 seconds

Bright blue light crosses Texas sky on a clear January night.I was in transit from Dallas, TX to College Station, TX driving about 70 miles an hour. As I approached Reagan, TX on State Highway 6, headed in a south easterly direction, I saw a light that seemed bluish in color traveling in a path perpendicular to mine. At first, I thought it was a lower flying plane. But upon further inspection, it was clearly not a plane due to shape, speed, altitude, and lack of any further lighting. The strange thing to me was that I've witnessed meteor showers and they have always seemed to be coming straight down, are very fast, and are very short lived. The object I saw was traveling in a very horizontal direction angling slightly downward. As I was driving, I noticed it in about the 11 o'clock position from the direction I was driving and proceded to follow it visually for 3-8 seconds as it continued to head perpendicular to my SE traveling direction. It seems the light strength faded somewhat as it continued until I lost visual sight of it at about the 3 o'clock position to the direction I was traveling. I didnt have time enough to slow down and stop and track the thing. My initial thoughts after I knew it was not a plane, was that it was that fallen satellite I had vaguely heard about. But then, I recalled that it had supposedly landed much earlier in the day in the Egypt area. While I am a young college graduate with an engineering degree, I can not say what it is I saw. From my experiences, it was no type of meteor due to it's relatively slower speed than all the meteors I've seen and it's brightness and direction of travel. It could have been a plane in the process of crash landing, but I have heard nothing of that in the news today. Also, an argument to it being a plane is that it was just a brighter bluish light. It appeared round and not very distant from my location. As I have grown up close to the DFW airport. I have seen thousands of planes come and go, and for the object to have been the same size I saw without seeing wings or the rest of a plane, it would have ! had to b e at extremely high elevation which it was not and was traveling much too fast for a planes at most heights. I hope this was witnessed by someone else...
