Moss Bluff resident Stephanie Wilks saw a strange glowing object in the nights sky last Thursday. She says, "I am not crazy and I am very sane I don't believe in UFO's but my perspective is changing."
Wilks spotted something flying around than night. Her mom videotaped it.
Wilks says, "Last Thursday night me and my boyfriend were getting ready to leave and we live across from a big open farm field and in the middle of the field were these four orange lights. Something that isn't there all the time definitely out of the ordinary."
Former Sulphur mayor Dennis Sumpter saw something in the sky that night. He even took a picture with his digital camera. Sumpter says, "Well there are a lot people out there that may say I am crazy. When I saw it over the trees again it looked more like flares. I lost it in the trees and about 8 miles later when we got to our farm it had moved in the sky. I served in intelligence in the service and I would think it is some kind of military flare that we are not used to seeing.
Wilks says she has no idea what the object was.
"Fear of the unknown fear of not knowing what they are looking at or doing or whatever it was watching me or whatever the lights came from very scary and creepy. It was fun though I wouldn't change anything about it,"said Wilks.
