Feb. 6, 1966; Nederland, Texas
5:45 [6:05?] a.m. Mr. and Mrs. K. R. Gulley saw a tadpole-shaped object about 14 ft long 2 ft wide with 8 yellow and red neon-like lights at 250-500 ft altitude, casting a pulsating red glow on the lawn. House and street lights went out, high frequency sound bothered the witnesses' ears. Object blinked out when aircraft passed overhead then came on again afterward. Object departed to W [or from W to SW] about 1-1/2 miles to vicinity of airport, where an aircraft's landing lights lit up UFO, then disappeared about 20-25 elevation in a slow climb.
