Daytime observation of metallic object in Austin, Tx.Let me start by saying that I am a police officer in Austin Tx. On 08-28-02 at approximately 3:30pm myself and a friend were at the swimming pool at an apartment complex located at brodie lane and west william cannon drive(austin tx). The sky was very clear with a few clouds in the distance. My female friend stated, "whats that" and pointed to the northwest. I looked up and observed a shiny metallic object hovering in the sky. The object was shaped like a 3 pointed star (like the mitsubishi symbol). She asked me if I thought it was balloons. The object then changed formation slowly and began moving towards us. It is difficult to estimate the altitude of the object when we first observed it, but it would cover about 1" in size held at my arms length. The object then came very close over the pool area (almost directly over) where we were. It had changed shape and was now like a vertical cylindrical object with blurred features. The altitude had dropped to perhaps 100'. I knew that something was way out of the ordinary when I observed a metallic object projecting from the right side of the craft (?). The sun was reflecting on the projecting object and I know without a doubt that it was solid and definately not a balloon. It appeared to be almost chrome colored. It also appeared to me that the object was traveling against the wind (moving from northeast to southwest). We were, up to this point, the only two people at the pool. Just as the craft was over the pool area 4 teenagers approched (3 males 1 female). I asked them, "do you see that...what do you think it is?". They all watched the object with us for a few minutes and did not reply. The object hovered over the pool area for 1-2 minutes and then began moving towards the southwest again. As it did it changed shape again and started gaining altitude. I lost sight of the object as the roof of the clubhouse blocked my view. Let me state that I could hear the noise from the traffic on the roadways, and air traffic in the distance (a ! southwes t airlines plane flew by from east to west) - but at no time did I hear any noise from the object. Based on the slow speed and low altitude of the object I feel confident that many other observations were made in this area.((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this police officer and found him to be quite credible and convincing. PD))
