Confirmed: Mass Sighting of Lights "Slinking" About Sky, Forming Triangle - See Video Out of League City
Something's up in the League City area.
We've got a SECOND report describing "slinky"-like lights hovering in the sky (read the first report here) and then gradually disappearing. In this account, the lights gathered from different parts of the sky and formed a clear triangle shape, before vanishing. J.J McQuade contacted Texas UFO Sightings with a detailed description and video of the event (the names of his fellow witnesses have been changed to protect their anonymity):
I was finishing up my 7-8pm tennis lesson with one of my students, Ron. His little brother was on the court watching the lesson. My 8pm lesson (Peter) was coming in to do his lesson. He was waiting, as my lesson with Imran was running a little over. One of our other tennis pro's (Fred) was doing a lesson with his student a few courts down from us. Fred shouted over to us to look up into the sky, that there was a "ufo". We looked up and saw what looked like a meteor or comet flying east to west across the sky, slowly. It looked like a "flaming marshmallow" with fire (blueish fire) coming out of the back of it, kind of like a rocket or something. Then it stopped and hovered! This is when I knew it wasn't a comet or meteor! Those don't stop and hover. Then as we were all watching, 2 other lights appeared and formed a triangle formation. Then the lights began flying in "slinky" patterns, or "figure S's". It was as if they were playing around up in the sky. This only seemed like a few hundred feet up, so it was very vivid. Could have been further, but it was close to where we were at. If I had to guess, it was directly above Nassau Bay, which is just off of Clear Lake in the SE Houston area. Then one of the lights slowly moved downward and to the east, and then vanished. The other 2 lights then vanished as well. Then a helicopter approached the area and began circling where the lights were at. Then several airplanes flew over the area, one of them flying directly over our tennis club. The helicopter looked military, but couldn't tell for sure. The planes I'm not sure either, but the one that flew over us was odd. It was totally quiet with NO NOISE. It did have a few lights, but looked different than a normal plane. It was either black, or it appeared to be black. You could barely see it, and it wasn't that far up.
