I suppose you may have heard the news about the UFO in Texas. Well, I was talking with my wife and mentioned something about wanting to see a UFO myself. I guess those little buggers were reading my thoughts or listening to my conversation, because the next thing you know I'm looking at a UFO from my front porch! Look at the video I took of it:

That was a terrifying experience, thinking we were going to be taken over by some strange alien race that flies in something that closely resembles a Diet Mt. Dew bottle. Weird! The thing was hovering near my porch, then suddenly sped away at twice the speed of light! (Ok, maybe not quite that fast, but it was really, really quick, much faster than a slug, even a slug with nitrous oxide or a turbocharger installed! It was sort of like a super-fast flying thingy.)

Sorry for the poor quality of the video, but I had to put my video camera on its "Magic Pix" night-mode setting, which caused it to be a little blurry, especially in motion. Strange how the UFO managed to stay pretty well focussed; I guess I'm a really good cameraman!

As a side note, I found a free video editor from Pinnacle that you might find useful; it's called VideoSpin. I used it to put the date on the video.
