Texans checking out the Super Moon last night - at around 9 PM - were in for a whole lot more than they could have imagined!
Texas UFO Sightings, the American Meteor Society, Facebook, local news outlets, MUFON, you name it, received a slew of reports of a silent blue fireball that sped through the night sky and then split into two.
Many were stunned by its size, and even thought it was a plane about to crash land nearby. Others saw drones following it. Others say this was no fireball at all, but something else entirely due to its peculiar behavior. Some even compared it to a very recent sighting of an orb changing colors and zig zagging about the night sky in Dallas.
As usual, you be the judge! Fortunately a Dallas resident was able to get the meteor on camera and he uploaded it to YouTube. Just goes to show, how rare great videos and photos of UFOs (or meteors, or whatever) are when you don't anticipate seeing them. This is the only footage I can find so far:
A photo was also taken in Denton, and submitted to MUFON:

There was another sighting in Taylor tonight (7-12-14). A bluish light rising from the southeast and then travelling northwest. The light split into two before disappearing. This was witnessed by three law enforcement officials who wish to remain anonymous.
