Texas witnesses at Hurst reported watching a dark, V-shaped object with a single turquoise light hovering above a nearby tree line about 6 p.m. on October 23, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was driving along the Trinity Boulevard exit near the Trinity River with a boyfriend and daughter in the vehicle when the object was first seen.
“I noticed just a bright turquoise light floating in the sky, and no other lights around it,” the witness stated. “Whatever it was coming off of was very dark.”
The witness first thought that the object could be a military aircraft or drone.
“The object hovered very low, too low for any plane and right above some trees. It emitted a single turquoise light that was quite noticeable and unique. The object seemed to hover and slowly fly, but I was driving away and when I looked back I couldn’t see it anymore.”
The witness lost sight of the object.
“We had to drive away from the object and turn left away from it over a bridge. As soon as we turned it was out of sight.”

1. I was driving with my boyfriend and daughter in Hurst, taking the Trinity Blvd exit. The sighting was in the forested area to the right of the exit, near the Trinity River.
2.I noticed just a bright turquoise light floating in the sky, and no other lights around it. Whatever it was coming off of was very dark.
3.I questioned whether it was a military aircraft or drone.
4. The object hovered very low, too low for any plane..right above some trees. It emitted a single turquoise light that was quite noticeable and unique. The object seemed to hover and slowly fly, but I was driving away and when I looked back I couldnt see it anymore.
5. During the sighting I felt creeped out and worried because I wondered why a military plane would be in Hurst. I mentioned it and my boyfriend saw the exact same thing and had the same questions that I did. I posted a status on Facebook and my cousin informed me there had been similar sightings in DFW this past weekend, so I went online and found this website. I have goosebumps thinking about it and seeing similar sightings online. When I type in the description to Google, most results include the word “UFO.”
6. We had to drive away from the object and turn left away from it over a bridge. As soon as we turned it was out of sight.
