UFOs or military flares? That is the question. Texas UFO Sightings Facebook fans Jess Perry and Sandra Avila brought attention to a pretty intriguing mass sighting - a group of glowing objects hovering over El Paso and constantly appearing, disappearing, and then re-appearing again, were caught on film by many folks. You can see a few photos, read a few quotes, and watch a few videos below. Local news stations, like KVIA and KFOX14, have quoted Fort Bliss as saying these are simply "illumination rounds," i.e. military flares, which were part of a training exercise from that night. As always, you be the judge:
This video was taken looking North from Northeast El Paso TX in the direction of Chaparral NM. It was taken on Tuesday August 25th, 2015 at approximately 10:00 pm. The objects you see were completely still, the movement you see is me shaking while holding the camera. They were quite low so please be sure that you disregard the moving lights toward the bottom of the video, it was cars and trucks passing on the highway that runs along the back wall of our property. There is no way these lights could have been planes or flares because of how still they were and how they disappeared and came back. This is only the end part of the occurrence as I was unable to get my phone out and start recording for a period of time. I have never seen lights in that direction as it's mostly an empty stretch of desert with some mountain ranges in the distance... Comment if you've ever seen anything like this, especially if you were in the El Paso TX, Chaparral NM or Las Cruces NM area or if you have any idea as to what this is.
