Pictures were taken on cell phone.My son, ((namd deleted)), came to my home in Buffalo Gap, Texas at apprx. 23:00 tonight 4-7-2009 and asked “if there have been any TV reports of a meteor or anything else crashing in our area.” I had not heard of anything because I was not watching live TV. We were watching a recording of an earlier program we like to watch. We had been out on a local lake with my son (the one who saw this object) earlier in the evening . Our favorite program came on and I recorded it while we were still out on the lake. My husband and I came on home and left our son at the lake so he could catfish after dark. When we got home we turned on the recording and were watching it from 22:00 to around 22:58. The signal was interrupted several times as we watched the recording. This is not a common occurrence at all on recordings from our HD TV. We just kind of wondered why the signal was messed up and let it go at that. When my son came in around 23:00, he mentioned that he had seen something really “strange” streak across the sky as he sat out on the lake in our boat. He said “It was HUGE”…. And that jets from the Air Base (Dyess) had gone up shortly after the object appeared, streaking across the sky towards Buffalo Gap, where we live. He said the object looked a lot like a meteor streak but was “huge” . He went on to say that the jets from Dyess were circling the area around and between Buffalo Gap and Tuscola (to our southwest approx. 5 miles). We have no idea what he might have seen , but thought we should say something to someone. Surely, many others must have seen this event as well. We thought you might want to check into it and see what it might have been. Incidentally, my son is 31 years old and not a goofball. He called me after he left my house to go to his apartment (he doesn’t live with us and had come to bring our boat we had left with him) and said that there was several aircraft in the sky still circling our area. It was approx 23:45 at that point. It is not unusual to see aerial ac! tivity w ith the Dyess Air Force Base right in between Buffalo Gap and Abilene…however, it is odd to see a cluster of activity around an unknown event as my son saw. He does not have Internet and I sent this . I am sure he has lots more details he could relate first hand.Thank you ((name deleted))
