Cloaked image seen running across the road
Friday, April 2, 2010- We were on our way to Abilene, from our home in Breckenridge. At approx. 7:30 a.m., it was just before we reached the bridge over Hubbard Lake on 180, west bound.
My spouse was driving and I was just looking around, when my eyes locked onto the road ahead of us. We were coming upon a small rise in the road, visibility very clear. Suddenly I see something run across the road from left to right (South to North), right on top of the crest of the rise. It was like seeing small feet and partial legs in a fast trot across the road. It was almost like something mirroring the road surface, but visible above the road by about 10 inches or so.
It reminded me of the Predator in the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. I could not see above the calf area of the legs, except the rippled, distorted sky behind the object, about the size of a body.
As we passed that area, I looked to my right into the bar-ditch area and there was nothing there, no animal, nothing. I couldn't see anything on the side of the road, or near the trees but I had the feeling that something watched us go by.
I remember telling my spouse immediately when I saw this thing cross the road, "Oh wow! Did you see that thing cross the road?" He hadn't noticed but I described to him what I saw. For the rest of the trip I kept watching to see if maybe it was just my eyes playing tricks on me but I never saw anything like that again, during the trip.
Below is a depiction I drew of what I saw.
What was it I saw? Was it a cloaked entity, a trick of light, or possibly heat waves off the pavement? I ruled out the later, as the evening before was quite cool and the morning sun had not yet warmed up the air, or pavement enough to cause that effect.
I don't believe it could have been miniature dust devils, as whatever it was, it was moving across a light southeast breeze. As for a trick of the light, the sun was directly behind us and barely above the eastern horizon. The only thing I have to go on, is the fact that I felt a presence as it crossed in front of us and then as we passed where it crossed. It still gives me chills.
