In the summer of 1989 I was sitting inside with my parents (at 31.333196, -95.500683 roughly) who were playing Dominos with our family friends who lived on the property behind ours. We lived in the sticks in Texas, outside of a very small town. I was only 6 at the time but this is burned into my memory. I remember my sister running into our trailer house and she was white as a sheet and she could barely stammer out.. Momma.. Dad.. Come outside now. All of us got up and ran outside and about 50 yards from the back of our trailer my sister had already arrived and was just staring up into the sky, it was quite obvious the instant we turned the corner at the back of the house what she was looking at. Sitting there hovering no more than 50 feet above the tops of the trees (Evergreen Pine Trees) was this gigantic Triangle with reddish orange lights on each corner and a large one in the center. The large light wasn't originally lit up though, the other lights pulsated and then as they finished the one in the center lit up. I remember I was confused, and a little bit terrified. I remember my mom and our backdoor neighbors wife were both very very terrified and visibly shaking. I asked my mom what it was. She immediately said it wasn't from earth quite matter of factly as if there wasn't a question in her mind that it wasn't from here. I immediately knew she was telling the truth.. I just felt that this was something outside of our comprehension... and this was coming from a child who had just gotten his first video game console and was amazed by even that. We all sat there in perfect stunned silence for more than 15 minutes while the thing just hovered there without moving so much as an inch. Then in a matter of a second or so you could see it start to move then *fwoosh* it was gone but there was a trail of the object as if you could see it still. It was so fast the light left behind showed a gigantic trail following in the direction the object went which was sw of the LAT/LON I provided. Many years later when we had moved into the city, my mother and I were watching Unsolved Mysteries and on the screen came the object we saw, we both began to get visibly upset as it still terrified us. It was reported as doing the same exact things it did with us, but it was over a German Military Base when it was reported.
