A witness to a bright star-like object hovering for several minutes over the Katy area submitted photo and testimony to the site. When viewed through binoculars, the "star" in actually appeared as a "U-shaped fireball." What is also noteworthy is the witness was able to see this UFO from different parts of their neighborhood (or town, it isn't entirely clear), implying that it was rather big:
Was diving home and admiring the sunset behind a large cloud that was casting a blue shadow on the sky when I noticed a bright light lower in the horizon to the left of the sunset. It looked like an early star. So after. Got home I ran in and got my binoculars and was surprised to see a clearly defined u-shaped fire ball. It remained in the same spot in the sky for a full five minutes. Did not change shape. But then got smaller as if moving slowly away from me and out of my range of sight. I attempted to take a photo with my iPhone but it only shows up as a light speck. But the image in the binoculars was extremely defined.
This sighting reminds me of another July sighting from Texas, specifically a MUFON report detailing a strange color-changing light hovering over San Antonio:

A Texas resident witnessed a red, highly-reflective, seemingly metallic round object glide slowly through the sky outside Plano, Texas. Read the NUFORC report (case 135131):

Could this UFO be explained more simply as a drone or balloon, or could this be an ET or even top-secret military craft? Share your theories in the comments below, or report your own UFO sighting!
Daytime photographs of a colorful bright light hovering in the sky over Verdi, Texas have been submitted to MUFON (case 85035).
Raymond was driving as we headed towards Floresville on Hwy 97 near 1784. We were deep in conversation when I glanced towards the sky, which I have a habit of doing. That's when I saw the light. Raymond looked and he saw the light too. We watched it for about 5 miles. It was a brilliant fluorescent green when we first noticed it. Then it started changing colors. First the light changed to a bluish color, yellow, then a red orange and then finally a deep orange red color. It looked as if that part of the sky was on fire. The light slowly began to fade from the left side to the right. After the light faded, we continued looking towards the cloud to see if anything came out, but nothing did. At first, I was nervous because I hadn't seen anything like that before but then we became very interested in learning what it is. We are UFO enthusiasts and frequently stargaze looking for our universal neighbors.
Could this witness simply have seen a light show or a spotlight, or was there a craft or object emitting these colors?

TexasUFOs has received a phenomenal account of a blue-green UFO and a subsequent alien abduction. The witness reported seeing a blue-green "beam of light" and then later at night during a dream, recalled an encounter with an alien, in which both the witness and the alien communicated with each other without moving their mouths. To make matters eerier, a mysterious black unmarked car with antennas sticking out was parked near the original UFO sighting:
Me and my brother were walking last night on 48th and university around 2-3am and it was pitch dark a green/Blue/white beam of light hit us; it came from above; I quickly looked up and it was gone. we all seen the light but no one seen what it was so we blew it off and over night as i slept i remembered every detail it was like we went through time but really fast to where none of us would really notice. during my dream i remember talking to a alien in a dark space but my mouth wasn't moving we talked through my mind he knew everything i was saying and i could here him talking but his mouth wasn't moving i could here like a knocking noise in the dark space like we were in some kind of object and it was moving but slowly i could feel it like when you're sitting in an empty house and you can hear the house making noises every once in a while. I'm not joking i know this was real and the crazy thing about it is a black crown vic which i thought was a under cover cop because there's a lot of cars like that in lubbock tx that are cops was in a parking lot when we were walking no one else was in the street at the time it was late it had a lot of antenna's sticking out of the car more then a normal cop car that has antenna's at least 6 that i saw and the windows where pitch black the car was off and when we finally got by it the car turned on and red and blue cop lights turned on and then they turned them off and drove away quickly it was all just odd none of it makes sense i know this was real i would really like to talk to someone.
What do you think of this detailed testimony? Could this witness simply have seen a UFO (possibly even a meteor) that inspired an alien-themed dream later? Could this report be a hoax? Or could this indeed be a classic case of a UFO sighting and an alien abduction?
The more common gray alien is almost always reported as communicating telepathically, versus verbally, and is experienced through dreams or hallucinations (or at least recalled through them). Another commonality of this report is the possibility that the Men in Black, or some other undercover investigator, may have been on the scene.
I will follow up with this witness for more detail, but in the meantime, if you've seen a gray alien... or any alien, for that matter... report your encounter!
A really good video of a bright white cigar-shaped object or craft flying through the daytime has been submitted to TexasUFOs by a witness who would like to go by "Double J," and who's had experience in the military and is quite certain this was no plane or drone:
A similar sight was photographed over Dallas this month. Could these incidents be related? Have you seen a rod or cigar-shaped object recently? Report your sighting!
