The witness and his girlfriend were driving home from a grocery shopping trip in Snyder and heading toward Spur along Highway 208 when the incident occurred at 4:57 p.m. on December 31, 2016.

“I noticed a bright, shiny, silver ball hovering about 500 feet in front of us to the southeast,” the witness stated. “I said, ‘What is that?’ She first thought it was a helicopter because it wasn’t moving; that’s until it slowly started disappearing and fading away into nothing.”

The two then saw another similar object.

“Then we immediately saw another one to the east and that also started to fade away. She pulled over and I grabbed my phone to record it. But by the time we got out it was completely gone. It was eerily quiet, and of course being in West Texas we were the only vehicle on the road. We were awestruck and excited that we both witnessed something unexplainable.”

  1. In the summer of 2014 I witnessed a shiny sphere UFO about 2/3 the wingspan of a Cessna 172 flying past and keeping perfect station off the port wing of a Cessna 172.
    I was on an airfield at the west end and most other people were at the east end but busy readying a glider and/or watching flying on a hill to the north. I didn’t find anyone else looking the right way so nobody else I know of saw it.
    The 172 caught my attention (a bit close to our circuit) but right away I also saw the sphere: very shiny like a giant brand new ball-bearing. It was as if it were attached: so perfect was the station-keeping – both at about 1000 feet and a steady 80-ish knots or so (so not fast). They flew together (did the pilot even see it?) from behind me (west) to east and for several seconds I watched until having to respond to a call to launch a glider. My phone was off and no way to get it working in time. I reckon 12 seconds in view, then after a 30+ second interval they were too far away to see.
