Pilot 'takes photo of Texas UFO'
Media have been in a tizzy this week over the recent UFO sighting in Texas. The NowPublic post on the mysterious object has been one of our most popular stories this week.
There were initially no reported images of the UFO, but now one man has come forward with what he alleges to be a photo of the object (follow the link to see it).[q

Now, a central Texas man is claiming to have seen one over Lake Travis, and he’s got pictures to back up his claim.[/q]If the photo's a tad inconclusive, perhaps this colourful eyewitness report will paint a fuller picture.
Rick Sorrells says he saw it while he was hunting deer in the woods.
"You look at the trees, and it was right here," Sorrells told ABC News correspondent Mike Von Fremd as he showed him the location in the woods where he spotted the UFO.
Steve Allen, a 50-year-old pilot, was at a campfire with friends and says the object was a mile long and half a mile wide. "I don't know if it was a biblical experience or somebody from a different universe or whatever but it was definitely not from around these parts," Allen said.
Allen drew a sketch of the object, which he said traveled at amazing speed without making a sound. While drawing, Allen told Von Fremd that he saw "an arch shape converted in a vertical shape, and then it split and made two of them, and then these turned into just fire and it was gone."

Steve Allen, Mike Odom and Lance Jones were out admiring a beautiful Texas sunset Tuesday evening when they saw something none of them can explain.
Allen called it an unidentified flying object. And, because he's been a private pilot for more than 30 years, he has a little more experience judging air speeds and distances than most.
“We all flipped out,” Allen said. “I didn't sleep a wink last night.”
