Large Bright Light Releases Red Objects 14 Miles SE From Garden City Texas
Time of Sighting: 9:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: 14 miles SE from Garden City Texas.
Number of witnesses: 4

Full Description of Event/Sighting: I know this was many years ago, but I have never gotten this out of my mind and I'm curious to find out if anyone else has reported seeing anything like this. As we were driving down a dirt road through the west Texas scrub, we saw a large white light high up in the sky. At first we thought it was just a very large star, but it was odd enough to keep our attention. It appeared to float and move slowly from west to east.
The light kind of flickered, but not strongly. The size and movement was what kept our attention. As we watched, a small red light came out of the side of the large white light and move downward immediately. It dropped slowly in a relatively straight line until it got fairly close to the ground and then it started moving very rapidly back and forth across about 1/4 of the horizon. The speed was tremendous, fast enough to appear to draw a red line back and forth across the sky as it moved.
Finally, it stopped moving and dropped to the ground 2 - 3 miles away from us. We could see a large area lighted up on the ground, but we were not close enough to see anything specifically. Also, we were terrified and wanted to move away and not closer! We continued on our way until we lost site of the light. We didn't report anything at the time as we didn't know who to report it to, and it would have only been an anecdotal account anyway. If you have ever heard of anyone seeing something like this, I would like to read their account. Thanks.
