The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
i was taking out the trash one evening on the east side of austin when i stopped in my tracks. just overhead a bit higher than the trees was this yellow orange glowing cylindrical shaped object moving steadily across the sky. it was almost as though it absorbed sounds which is how i noticed it i â€œheardâ€œ it because of how quiet it was? i know that makes no sense. i was frozen while i watched this unfamiliar object move slowly but quickly and extremely smoothly across the sky. there were no visible propellants and no trail that i could see. there was a silver or black metal like looking thing connected to the orb similar to how a lightbulb is configured but the ratio of glowing cylinder to the end piece was much greater than the ratio of a lightbulb to its end piece. it moved from east to west and was gone before i could record it. i have never seen anything like it before or since .
