I recently received the following account:
Hey Lon, I read the article about the couple and friends in Florida about the Manta Ray sighting in 2004 / 2005. I am very pleased that you posted the article about the sighting.
You mentioned the sighting was possible the biological alien craft. I looked into this for a bit. I gather the distinction that the Manta Ray biological craft is quite possibly different from the Dark Devil Ray I saw back in April 2004. This creature I saw for about three to four seconds was more of a E.B.E. / crypto-creature. This creature was spotted in uptown Houston under the Dunlavy Street bridge about 10pm to 10:30pm back in the year 2004. I'll tell you how I spotted the DDR.
I was on the feeder road in heavy standing traffic. I was just watching the traffic in front of me carefully. The bridge was over the feeder road. the feeder road ran parallel to the freeway. The freeway had moving traffic just the feeder road had standstill traffic. From where my position was in my truck, I was about 50-75 feet from the bridge. The bridges in Houston usually have lights under, the Dunlavy bridge did not have lights under. The area around and under the bridge was in total darkness. However, lights were in other areas close to the bridge. With the standstill traffic along the feeder road leading under the bridge, lights provided enough to see the DDR. The area of the bridge I saw the DDR was between the feeder road and the freeway, an area about the size of a small store. There I was in traffic watching closely with eyes fixed straight ahead.
So then the Dark Devil Ray made its appearance. What I saw was astonishing. The DDR with wings up levitated from the ground to underneath the bridge. Never did the DDR flap/move its wings. The movement was from left to right up and diagonally to under the bridge. I was astonished and bewildered that I saw with my eyes fixed upon it. The wingspan from upturned wing left to right was about ten to twelve feet. The DDR length from head to tail was no more than ten feet. I did not see a whip tail, I did notice that the creature was completely black. Darker than the surroundings. The DDR seemed to do nothing more than levitate from the ground to underneath the bridge. My complete view was a profile view from 50 to 75 feet from the DDR. I did not see any glowing eyes, the DDR was completely black.
Noting the manta ray UFOs, I turned on the YouTube and other sources to distinguish the difference or similarities.
Thanks for reaching out, I have waited 15 years to talk about this DDR sighting.
