Next month, 44 years will have passed since a rather well-known tale of an experience with a UFO took place in Brazoria County. On Sept. 3, 1965, two Brazoria County Sheriff’s Deputies encountered something off Highway 36 near Damon that still gets people talking.
“I’ll never forget it as long as I live. It’s very vivid in my mind,” said Billy McCoy, now of Lake Jackson. At the time, he was chief deputy sheriff. He and Deputy Bob Goode had been to the Sweeny vs. West Columbia football game on a Friday night. Goode’s left hand was bandaged, because he’d been bitten by a baby alligator.
“He unwrapped it and it was all swollen and chewed up, with bloody streaks running down it,” McCoy said.
Goode asked McCoy to ride with him while he patrolled. The pair were headed from Damon toward West Columbia on Highway 36.
“There was no ground fog, it was a perfectly clear night. There was a moon shining brightly,” McCoy said. “I guess we’d gone a mile or mile and a half. I was looking over to my right and I noticed this purple looking light above the horizon. I said, ‘Bob, that’s a strange-looking light over there.’ He said, ‘Oh, they’re probably drilling another well.’”
As McCoy watched, a smaller blue light seemed to appear out of the purple. Goode pulled over.
