“Cigar-Shaped UFO Sighted At La Porte”

7 November 1966 (The Victoria Advocate, Texas)

Captain Louis Fontenot, the captain at Morgan’s Point, and three other persons sighted a metallic, cylindrical shaped UFO that moved across the sky over La Porte, Texas on 6 November 1966, at around 8:45 a.m., according to the article:

Quote from the article:
“Fontenot said all four observed it through 50-power binoculars and agreed that it was shaped like a ‘big rocket or cigar with two fins at the very bottom.’

The sighting was reported to the air police section at Ellington Air Force Base, which refused comment on the report.

Fontenot said he and his friends saw a jet fighter turn over La Porte and follow the object’s path a few minutes after the report was phoned in.

Fontenot said the binocular view of the object showed ‘either writing or windows,’ adding, ‘four of us saw the same darn thing, and it’s hard to say we didn’t see it. We don’t know what we saw.’ ”
