An El Paso resident watched a trio of lights - one of them especially bright - slowly make its way over the neighborhood
- When: November 26th, 2013
- Where: El Paso
- What: Three slowly moving lights forming triangle
. Lucky us, they kindly submitted a photo and account to TUS:
A friend on Facebook in Decatur Tx posted about a very bright non-blinking light moving very slowly in the NNE skies. I am in El Paso and went to look and sure enough...after using the telephone cables behind my house as a reference point, the light was moving very slowly. Then I noticed two other dim lights following behind it but all 3 made an isosceles triangle. They were headed south but then turned west. This was a very SLOW hover over an hour. It was so cold and so late past midnight that I finally came inside after standing outside watching them from around 10 p.m. to about 1 a.m. I have about 30 rapid shot pictures and zoomed in on 19 and got something pretty interesting! If you want to see more, please feel free to email me. I'm not saying its a UFO, but I sure dont know what it is!
We've got photo and an eyewitness account of a strange bronze cigar-shaped object shooting down from the sky, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader. Check it out:
- When: November 30th, 2013
- Where: Arlington
- What: Cigar shaped object
Reddish looking oblong object appeared out of no where, flew very fast and downward at an angle. It was around sunset close to Lamar and Brown in North Arlington.
Did you see a group of orange lights fly in unison over your neighborhood? Report your sighting! I'd love to add to the pile... Over the Thanksgiving holiday, many Texans spotted a gang of UFOs - specifically, solid orange balls of light! - silently flying together through the sky, faster than nearby aircraft. One witness even saw jets following behind.
On occasion, people have seen single objects, vs a group. This is all off the heels of recent sightings of strange star-liked, and even fiery objects spinning in the sky
, which conspiracy theorists have linked to the consistently surprising Comet Ison
, and a phenomenon known as magentars
Check out the witness photos and testimony below!
The first was submitted by a Port Aransas reader who was lucky enough to snap a photo:
Bright orange orbs moving across
Sky -southeast to northwest- saw 7
Of them , about 1 minute apart .
Made no noise Witnessed by 3 of us.
Port Aransas, November 30th
Next up we have photo and testimony from a Corpus Christi witness, and another generous reader of TUS:
Galveston, November 29th
Bright orange light...like an orange spotlight with different levels of intinsity. First saw it flying South, in the Southwest sky, then it turned towards the East.....stopped and hovered approx 1 1/2 minutes...then dimmed over approx 3-4 seconds and disappeared. Never heard a noise. When it first stopped and just floated in the sky I called my wife outside and she witnessed the hovering...but she went in prior to it disappearing. Would estimate object was approx 2-3, maybe 4 miles away and 2-3 miles in the air. I took a picture with my phone that is poor quality.
Corpus Christi, November 30th
And who could forget about the photo I recently blogged about from Galveston on the 29th
, featuring a single orange orb flying through the sky? (Also graciously submitted to TUS by a reader.) A few days before that, in Katy, someone spotted another group of UFOs, and although they weren't fortunate enough to get a photo of the event, they did kindly submit a description of what they saw to TUS:
Solid Red/Orange lights, one after another moving from the horizon in the Northeast and gaining altitude while travelling west. There were 10-15 in all, but they were always staggered, and following the same path. They all would disappear about 45deg azimuth in the Northwest sky. Absolutely no blinking or typical colors for aircraft. Even with binoculars, there was only a solid orange/red light source. They were going faster than the regular air traffic in that area (and in the opposite direction from the IAH landing pattern tonight.) No sound whatsoever. Could not judge distance, as it was just a light, with no features, but I would guess anywhere from 20-50 miles north of me, so I am certain that others had to have seen the same thing.
It wasn't just TUS that got these reports! MUFON got a few, too. Here's one out of Webster from the 29th:
Bright reddish orange object traveling swiftly north-northeast in unison with two smaller white "lighted" object (no flickering or blinking) at 45 degree angle from each other (all three equally spaced) with absolutely no sounds at all.
I went outside to have a cigarette before bed, when I saw 5 or 6 very bright orange objects flying across the eastern sky, just below Jupiter and the Gemini constellation. They seemed almost fuzzy to look at, but very bright. 2 of the lights remained the same brightness, but the others would brighten then slowly dim out. They were following each other, for the most part, but the smaller ones seemed to stay close together, and they were the ones that dimmed out. I looked around in the sky and saw 3 jets behind these lights, at some distance, but headed in the same direction, towards the north. There were 2 more jets flying at high altitudes in opposite directions. The objects didnt appear to make any sound. After a few minutes had passed another bright orange light flew in the same direction and slowly faded away as the others, and I saw 2 more jets right after that - both headed north east.
What do you think these Texans witnessed? I'd say Chinese lanterns or flares, but the sightings occurred over several nights!
We've got an interesting photo of an orange and white fuzzy object speeding over Galveston. Check out the photo and the description of the sighting, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader:
- When: November 29th, 2013
- Where: Galveston
- What: Fiery ball of light speeding through night sky, makes turn
Looked like a ball with flame or red light emitting from the front of it. Travelled south from houston over galveston and then turned to the west. Travelled and about 100 mph.
- When: November 23rd and 26th, 2013
- Where: Denton, Luling, Port Neches, and Richardson
- What: Blue/green star-like object - but moves or disappears, similar to other recent Texas UFO sightings
Texans are seeing stars... almost
literally. Worldwide, reports have been coming in about strange star-like objects that, while especially bright, simply hover in mid air just like any star (or satellite) might do. However, then the star starts to move... or disappear altogether!
From fiery red objects
to dancing stars
, the pattern isn't the easiest to pin down. Compare photos from recent reports of such an object in the Lone Star State... is this Venus or something else entirely?
Denton, Nov 23
San Antonio, Nov 15
Richardson, Nov 26
Video still of red object: Austin, Nov 2
Video still of red object: San Antonio, Oct 20
And here are details on the latest of these sightings! Here's the full MUFON report from a November 23rd sighting of a vanishing star in Denton, corroborated by another witness ("Dee") who comments:
My boyfriend and I pulled into our driveway and got out of the car. My boyfriend noticed this very bright starlike object in the sky and asked me to look at it. We stood there and looked at it for 20 minutes and it did not move. We went inside and looked up what planets are visible tonight and found Venus to be prominent in the SW tonight. We showed our roommate the starlike objects and watched it for another 10 minutes and then went inside. I checked on the starlike thing every 10 minutes for 2 hours and then it simply was not there after a while.
And here's the fortunately detailed report of a bluish green orb, with a triangular halo, which disappeared along with a sonic boom, from November 26th... it was kindly submitted to TUS by Joseph Wiele:
Witness Photograph, Denton Nov 23
I set out to walk my dog at approx. 545 pm on 11-26-13 and I noticed a big light that appeared to be a bright start to the southwest. After about 20 min of walking I noticed the light was considerably brighter than anything in the sky and it hadn't moved? I watched it closer for about another 10 minutes and I noticed now planes (both commercial and smaller) and helo's were getting more and more prevalent in the general area. Still the object not moving, it seemed to be in a bright triangular shape.
Witness Photograph, Richardson Nov 26
Now the helos and planes were circling around it and at time 2-5 different aircraft in the air at a time. I took a small video and a couple pics but they did not come out well. I called a friend in Plano and he could see it too and took a couple pics.
I finished my walk at 730 pm and it was still in the same position. Air traffic was crazy but I am certain some of it was from the holiday. I took a shower and when I was in the bathroom I heard a jet fly over and than I heard a sonic boom. I went outside and the object was gone.
Received a call stating 2 ufo were in the sky, went outside, in the south/southeast heard swish/whir sound, dogs howling from serveal directions. There was a bright strobe like light flashing from the north/northwest moving south by southwest, appeared lower to the ground. After being outside awhile we walked heading west looking in the sky, the caller said they were still in sight. Just before coming in, on three occasions saw three greeish light shooting from high in the sky going south/southwest downward, they looked like a shooting star, fading the closer it came to the ground, speed was very fast. The ufo was high in the sky, south, the lights of it made a shape like an arrow with the tip pointing east, the shaped changed or moved. Got to cold went inside after 20 minutes or so, the shape was still in the sky. The noise (heard in the south/southeast)had stopped maybe 5 minutes are so of being outside, the bright flashing light in the north disapeared after ten minutes or so. Another person's account thought the ufo was like a group of glesting stars moving from east to west very slowly. All three of us observed the shooting orb type light and the ufo had moved in location.
Finally, a report out of Port Neches, also from November 26th, featuring a blue green light in motion... it was kindly submitted to TUS by a reader:
Green/blue light was swirling high in the sky, I was on the phone with my sister and told my husband to come look too, for about a min it was just there swirling then you can tell it slowed down and starred descending straight down, very straight and very slow. Never seen anything like it, and I lived on a navy base a long time.
We've got another report of a triangle UFO on our hands...While driving home, a family spotted a large, bright triangle craft in the sky, traveling at a great rate of speed. They submitted photo and testimony to MUFON:
- When: November 18th, 2013
- Where: Laredo
- What: Well liit triangle craft flying quickly through sky
I was with my parents and we were going home. My mom was the one who saw it first and told us so we reversed and it took off. Something weird definitely not a plane. Kind of scary. It was a triangle shaped dark black with losts of lights right on top of a football field with football field lights on. I was freaking out but somewhat excited because I had never seen anything like it before. It took off going north bound and left pretty fast.
Although the latest Texan to witness a "triangle" UFO did not get photo or video of the sighting, they were kind enough to draw what they saw and submit a report to TUS:
- When: November 24th, 2013
- Where: Plano
- What: Triangle shaped, unlit object silently gliding through sky
Slightly passed midnight I noticed something dark and triangular gliding through the sky. It was about 50-80 feet up and gliding quickly southbound parallel to Preston Rd in between Parker and Park. There were no lights and no sound coming from it.
A couple walking their dog was startled by a slow-moving UFO, which seemed to be looking for something, followed by loud army helicopters. Here's the full report, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader:
- When: November 23rd, 2013
- Where: Dallas
- What: Dimly lit circular object traveling slowly
My girlfriend and I were out walking our dog. We looked up at the stars and noticed a half circular shape very dimly lit up. It was extremely slow moving, like it was searching for something. We watched it for about 25 seconds and then lost sight of it behind a big tree. That was about 15 minutes ago. About 1 minute ago, as I'm writing this post, we hear an extremely loud helicopter over our apartment. It was a huge army helicopter, with the two propellers on each side, with its light on. It was looking for what we just saw. And there is another army plane on the other side of our apartments. I was just wondering if anyone saw what we saw.
I was outside enjoying a cold front that had blown in looking at the stars when I noticed three lights in a formation like a triangle not very bright a dull white color I thought the were some birds at first but they weren't it moved fast made no noise, flew Straight then did a uturn then an L turn speed seemed constant. I wanted to grab my camera but it was moving fast and only had 30-45 sec to view before I lost sight of it due to distance I'm glad I viewed it for as long as I could without distraction. My feelings were that it was a very curious site to see. I star gaze almost every night and have never seen anything like it or move like it did. After I lost site I texted my friends and family and went online to see if anyone else had reported the shape and characteristics of what I saw I'd never heard of this shape before but it seems to be somewhat common
So the mass triangle UFO sighting at ACL is not going to die. Not as long as the best explanation anyone can offer up is Chinese lanterns.
- When: October 12th, 2013
- Where: Austin
- What: Glowing lights or well lit craft flipping in sky
(Eye roll.)Well, it's possible that mysterious triangle craft that checked out the Cure at Austin City Limits may have been accompanied by some other unknown flying objects. A little before the "triangle" showed up, someone spotted a saucer-shaped disk with three lights (or three separate lights forming a line)
. They kindly submitted their encounter to TUS and even shared an illustration of what they saw:
Prior to the triangle on the same trajectory was a saucer shaped something that at first I dismissed as a balloon but have since had to reconsider. It flipped like a coin across the sky. I've done an artist rendering. I wonder if anyone else caught video of it?
