A Texas witness at San Antonio reported watching a white light traveling horizontally across the sky overhead at 6:50 p.m. on November 20, 2022, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The witness was traveling along the Northwest Loop 410 and exited at Zarzamora Street and was driving on the access road traveling northbound.

“We saw a white light go over us and disappear,” the reporting witness stated. “It was traveling horizontally. The white light went directly down the middle of our front windshield and passed us.”

The witness observed that the object was traveling at about the speed of a helicopter.

“But it didn't have a red light or other lights. It was just a white light.”

The witness was driving at about 50 mph. The object disappeared after about three seconds.

“I was in the passenger side and saw it and thought my mind or eyes were playing tricks on me. But told my daughter and she said giggled that she thought the same too and saw the same thing. I keep telling myself maybe it was a shooting star but I don't remember a trail after it.”

The witness said that the object did not seem like it was falling down from the sky. The object was moving horizontally directly over the witness.

“It didn't look like a floating lantern because those are usually a yellowish, orangey color.”

The report included no images, filed on November 20, 2022, and released for public viewing on December 22, 2022. San Antonio is a city in Bexar County, TX, population 1,434,625. Witness quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to NUFORC or to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
