Okay.  I MAY have had a UFO sighting this evening, 9/30/97, at
about 7:32 pm.  My husband and I were in the car, less than a
mile from home here in Arlington, Texas.  A very big, bright,
single light was moving rapidly toward the west. (We were
traveling east.)  I watched it for a few seconds while we sat at
a traffic light. It appeared to be fairly low in the sky, less
than 1000 feet, I'd say, and from my vantage point was about the
size of a half dollar held at arm's length.  If we had been a
half mile further east I think it would have been directly over
us. Suddenly it was just gone! I stared at the spot where it had
been, expecting to see a plane that had banked around for airport
approach, thereby aiming its landing light another direction, but
there was NO airplane or anything. It just vanished.

There is still enough natural light at 7:30 on a clear evening
here to see aircraft with or without lights. We live very close
to the Arlington Municipal Airport and see lots of traffic in and
out of it.  The big bright light I saw did not belong to one of
the light aircraft from that airport.  Now that I think about it,
if it had been airplane landing lights, wouldn't there have been
two?  This was a single light.

Whenever I am outdoors I always scan the sky for anything
unusual, but I don't really expect to see anything but airplanes
and heli- copters.  The airspace over our house is Holding
Pattern Central for DFW airport.  I had supposed UFOs would stay
away from such a busy airport. (Yes, John Velez. I keep
forgetting that New York City, though smaller than Texas, does
have busier airports. <G>)
