Appearance / Description of Object(s)
A grey metallic but not shiny metal - cigar shape about 20' long and 6' tall from what I remember. Tube telescoped out from one end at an angle so tube was under the UFO pointed about 10' from top of metal components of the tower. It started glowing to an extremely bright light so that shape of object was unrecognizable.

Full Description & Details
I was visiting my brother who was stationed at Lackland air force base. We decided to go out to dinner and as we were going in we saw people looking up into the sky. A grey metallic cigar shaped UFO is hovering over one of those large metal power line structures (the kind that run across the country). It is about 20' long and 6' tall from what I remember. A tube telescoped at an angle out of the bottom end of it and started drawing electricity up into it. The electric traveled through the air in bursts, not one single bolt. As the electric was being pulled up into the tube the UFO began to glow. My sister-in-law became scared and we went into the restaurant. My brother had told me it was in the newspaper the next day. I didn't get to see it because I had left to go back home early that day. Him and I only talked briefly about it and both of us just keep saying, "what was that thing, what did we see?"
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Didn't think much about them until after that moment. I was about 17 years old.
I can't find any other information about electricity being sucked up. I believe that from the newspaper article it stated that there was a power surge at the electric company...but I can't remember. I did try to find the article and when I called the newspaper archives they stated that I would need an exact date to be able to find it and sadly, I don't have it.
