BRAZORIA COUNTY UFO FILES
On Friday, September 3, 1965 at 11 p.m. Brazoria County Chief Deputy Sheriff Billy E. McCoy and Deputy Sheriff Bob Goode of Angleton, Texas were patrolling the West Columbia area of Brazoria County (South of Houston), on Highway 36 between West Columbia and Damon.
McCoy spotted a brilliant purple glow at horizon level beyond vast pasture land and was unable to identify the source. The deputies headed south with Goode driving and McCoy to the driver’s right. The object was off to their left. The glow soon became discernible as a bright, round light.
Next, McCoy noted a somewhat smaller less powerful blue light seemingly “emerge” from the larger purple light and move some distance to its right. He later realized this effect resulted from the triangular object making a 90-degree turn so that it “faced” them, and the blue light, which had been parallel with and “behind” the purple one, now became visible.
Goode had maintained until this time that the lights were oil field lights, but McCoy disagreed. McCoy then noticed that both lights had apparently risen simultaneously slightly above the horizon level, and Goode then conceded that the objects could not be oil field lights. Goode swung the car around for a better view as they were now directly opposite the light, with McCoy, the passenger, now on the side closest to the pasture.
Based on knowledge of the terrain and upon further investigation in daylight, McCoy and Goode estimated that the object at this point was 5 to 7 miles from the highway.
Damon Texas in Brazoria County has some pretty interesting stories to recall. I sat down with a man who has called Damon his home for the past 85 years. His story took place 50 years ago but to this man it is as vivid as if it happened yesterday. He didn't see the UFO he recalled, but it was the commotion that was going on down at the coffee shop in Angleton that morning that he will never forget." People talking loud, they were very shook up over something " "At first I heard something about the sheriff so I thought he got hurt or killed or something ya know? " But no he was ok. Just shook up like he saw a ghost"
