7/26/2017 Update: San Antonio aviation officials were kind enough to share their thoughts on the sighting. Evelynn A Bailey, the Senior Public Information Officer of San Antonio's aviation department, shared the news report with the Operations Manager, who was "of the opinion based on the photos... that it looked like a contrail from a flight passing overhead. The glimpse of “orange fireball” would be the sun reflecting from the aircraft and seeing that it was either at sunrise, this could give it a “glowing orange shine” to it. " Meanwhile, Karen W Ellis, the Chief Customer Experience Officer of the San Antonio Airport, confirmed that there were no known airplane crashes in the area at the time.
5/2 4:06 PM: So far, still no official word form local officials or media (still trying to track one down), but many online and even Atlanta's chief meteorologist Glenn Burns have shared their thoughts with TexasUFOs about the event. Burns believes it could have been an aircraft dumping fuel. Others still think the "UFO" could be a meteor or aircraft crashing, or even a simple jet with a contrail (passing through cold, moist air). Others have even commented that this event could be an example of a "chemtrail" plane exploding! What do you think?
5/1 8:56 AM: As of this morning, there has still been no official word on what was seen in the San Antonio area. It appears that if the object was a plane, it may have been crashing, as many witnesses reported seeing the object on fire and falling. Meteor or space junk is still not being ruled out, to the similar sighting reported in Louisiana. As well, a fireball like this may also have been seen in Australia the same day.
4/30 12:29 PM: A new theory is that planet Earth got a sneak peak of the Eta Aquariid meteor shower, expected to arrive May 5th or 6th. So far, other theories include a meteor or aircraft crashing, a "chemtrail" plane gone awry, a satellite re-entering the Earth's atmosphere, a weather event (like a rare type of tornado), and a simple plane with a contrail (or perhaps dumping fuel or something else).
4/30 11:39 AM: Rumors are still swirling online as to what was seen in the Texas sky (and possibly in Louisiana and other parts of the country, too). Some even speculate the cause may not be so innocent. No news about the sighting has been released yet by the media or government officials.
430 8:24 AM: Some online are suggesting this could be "space junk," specifically the re-entry of SL-14 Rocket Body that was predicted to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere on April 27th, while others insist this was simply a plane flying.
11:31 PM Update: A new photo of the San Antonio sighting has been taken by another witness, and shared with TexasUFOs. SaraT described seeing "Burning fire falling out of (the) sky" at 8:10 PM this evening:
A Facebook fan also took a photo of the event, and suggested that the photo shows jets approaching the falling object:
10:31 PM Update: According to a YouTube video uploaded today, a similar event may also have been seen in Louisiana (though, still confirming details):
10 PM Update: Some online are speculating the event could be weather related (perhaps a sandstorm or tornado), or could even be a product of geoengineering.
According to a recent video shared on Twitter, an object or craft appears to have crashed near San Antonio. Could this be a meteor, crashing plane, UFO, downed satellite, or some weird weather phenomenon (perhaps a type of tornado)? Did you see this today in the Texas sky? According to the witness, "It looked like a bomb coming down." Report it!

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?

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!

A frequent UFO witness living in San Antonio reached out to MUFON with detailed testimony about their sightings (case 83992). According to the witness, UFOs of all varieties, from glowing green orbs hovering low to the ground to multicolored star-like objects high up in the sky, visit their home on a regular basis. Although they admit the photos do not do the UFOs justice, they did share some interesting ones along with their testimony:
I've witnessed, captured photos, and videos on a daily basis. They descend every night about 9pm. I walked outside to sit on patio and saw a glowing neon green orb on the ground. I began taking photos and it morphed into a huge T-shape with huge ligSince December 2016, every single night about 2100, I go outback on my patio and watch these UFO's and celestial being's descend and take their place. I've witnessed over 13 different shapes, colors, and sizes of ufo's and celestial beings in witch these flutter and fly as if they have wings. The red ones scare me in which these have wings, upper portion being human like and lower portion spinning with multicolored flashing lights. . These remind me of descriptions of some being's in the book of Revelation.There's a huge white one in particular that has a tiny blue and white sparkling sphere that stays a distance underneath it, following as "the queen" (as I call her) moves about nightly. I understand the importance of searching and studying ufo's for some are good and many are evil. We need to prepare NOW. The world is wrapped up in politics when Earth should be united as one and focus all our attention on this invasion we are about to encounter. When I talk to "the queen", she turns towards me. . . She hears me. At about 2am, these ufo's and celestial beings are literally hanging in the sky like ornaments on a Christmas tree. In December, I witnessed 5. January, up to 20 a night. . Now in May, there are literally hundreds. Why me?? My mother has always called me her celestial and I used to cry every night as a baby for the moon. San Antonio UFO Sightings (saufosightings) founder calls me regularly and believes they are attracted to my energy. UFO's and orbs are being seen (207,000 reports) almost daily, but most witness only once. In November's conference on extraterrestrial existence in Canada, they stated billions have been put forth towards seeking ET life and UFO's. . . I would like to personally invite anyone interested to witness these beings and UFO's to my home. You may film, take photos, and even see how they react when I just step outside. It's a 100% guarantee hundreds will be seen regardless of what month or what night. It is very important to me that I show someone all of these things from my backyard. My parents came all the way from West Texas to sit outside and watch them with me along with neighbors and friends. They are not all over San Antonio nightly, but over my home, countless. You can also tell the difference between each civilization and the fact that some of these have wings. Watching them with the naked eye is different then pictures or videos. Sometimes electronics pick them up differently than what you can actually see. The largest one I've ever witnessed was almost football field sized with huge multi colored lights all the way around this rectangular object. The lights were the size of a small swimming pool. As I was videoing a UFO hovering above me, a bright light beam down on me lighting up the ground all the way around me, terrified, I turned to look as it swooped down almost like a bird would over water, knocking me to the ground, yet it didn't touch me. . . It had no sound, breeze, odor, or heat. I've jumped in my car and chased one only once. As I was navigating through the neighborhood trying to keep up with it, I saw two others just like it. I turned down Newcome Street in front of my sons school and afraid of it losing me, I pulled over jumped out of my car held my iPad up and just began taking photos. What came out in the photograph was totally different from what I could see with the naked eye. It was round, multicolored light beamed up words out of the object. The lights on it were huge and bulbous. It stopped and hovered over the right side of Newcome. . . It knew I was looking at it. It was aware. . . Then took off zipping down the street towards Evers Rd. Too fast for me to have kept up. If anyone wants to witness or feels they have to see to believe, they are here and I will introduce them as I have many. I am a mother and nurse and an active sister at church. I finally told my pastor a couple Sunday's ago. This past Sunday, he informed the congregation that he had talk to God about a few things with God answering tell your congregation that it's time to prepare it is the beginning. This is a man of great discernment. A true man of God. My mother, Tamara Crockett has been a member of the Paranormal and Psychic Research Institute in Switzerland since November of 1977. Another strong gift in our family. I've seen hundreds of spirits since I was 12 yrs old. I had to finally set visiting hours with them so that I could get sleep in order to get up and work the next morning as a nurse. They were keeping me up and I wasn't getting good rest. It just so happens that it worked! So that's what everyone in the family now does. They set visiting hours. Finally, I would like to add that I graduated first out of 120 students in college with a 4.0 with no diagnoses of schizophrenia or hallucinations. LOL. I know I'm not crazy, this is real! Thank you so much for your time. (I have video's I will get in and hundreds of photos in high I will send the most shocking.)
Another San Antonio resident reported an ongoing UFO sighting in their neighborhood this week. Could these sightings be related?
If you live in San Antonio and also see UFOs on the regular, report your sighting.
An extremely bright green elongated light (stretched vertical versus horizontal like a typical cigar or rod-shaped craft) has been appearing over a home in San Antonio for several nights, according to witness testimony and photo sent to MUFON (case 83941):
Bright green pulsating light, for three weeks, adjacent to my home.
What do you think this green light could be? Explanations are hard to come by for this one - drone, aircraft, star, military flare, meteor, balloon all are not fitting theories. Do you have any ideas? Could this be a weird weather event, a star giving off an optical illusion, or something even weirder than that, perhaps otherworldly? Share your ideas in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Also, if this light has been appearing nightly over San Antonio, others must be seeing it. Are you also a witness to this UFO? Help crack this case and report your encounter!
