Many folks were lucky enough to catch quite the UFO show over Lake Travis the night of June 1st. I received a report on my web site, and several reports hit NUFORC, which prompted comments confirming the sighting.
Hundreds of bright white orbs hovered in mid air and also silently glided through the sky in a strange "constellation" like formation. Multiple witnesses compared them to a flock of birds, while another suggested they may have been meteors. It seems this sighting happened around 9 to 10 pm but one of the four witnesses who sent in a report said it was morning time (though exactly 12 hours before, so it's possible they accidentally typed AM instead of PM). Apparently there's a photo out there of the event, but it's yet to be posted online.
When 50+ UFOs show up like this and behave in such weird ways, it's tempting to call them Chinese lanterns, but their graceful movements, and occasional hovering has me a little bewildered. One witness was so taken by the encounter that they are now sure "We are not alone."
Do you have any idea of what Austin, Texans saw a few nights ago? Did you see it? Let me know!
No photos or video yet, but the witness descriptions remind me of the amazing orbs we see around the world, especially in Japan (also similar to orbs that like to park themselves around volcanoes, something I've seen myself on live volcano cams). Of course, it could be something as simple as flares or lanterns, but here's a video of the orb phenomenon that has been known about for years and years and is a frequent occurrence, this is not video of the June 1st sighting in Austin!, read witness comparison of it below:
Our description is already reported, but I wanted to send a video I found that is similar to what we saw. This is a video of a fleet over Mexico, but there are not as many on the video as what we saw Saturday night. There were over 100 and it was amazing! I'm pasting the link here:
Here's the first report sent to NUFORC:
100 star-like objects gliding through sky like a flock of birds. Later stopped high in sky and took on constellation-like formation.Saw 100+ solid white glowing objects that first appeared still, but in some type of formation: like a low-lying star constellation. They then began gliding through the sky silently, moving in formation like a flock of birds. They flew directly overhead, at a low altitude flying southeast to northwest. After 10 minutes they made their way higher into the sky and again all took on a constellation-like formation and stopped in their places. We stood and stared at them for another 20 minutes and they stayed in their exact locations. Otherwise very cloudy sky-no stars visible.
large cluster of ufo's over Austin Witnessed at least 100 flying orbs..flying north bound directly over lake Travis Texas. Orbs were pulsing bright ...most were flying in a cluster like a flock of birds with several stragglers bring up the rear. One flew really low directly over my house...it was perfectly silent and moving very fast.
We we saw was unexplainable, but amazing and scary at the same time.We were at the RV park at the La Hacienda. Me and my girl friend walked outside and we were looking at the stars...well we thought they were stars until they started moving. There was a group of like ten then all the sudden a group of at least a hundred showed up. They started going in a single file line the more showed up as they traveled east then more showed up the ones in the back liked like they were bigger then the ones in the front. Then they all stopped, then started flashing on and off(the bigger ones) some of the bigger ones started to rotate. They split up and went west and east the bigger ones stayed together while the smaller ones kept going. It was really creepy we thought they were setting up to do something catastrophic. For about ten mins the big ones stayed in the same spot then gradually moved to the west. We stayed outside until the clouds cover them up until we couldn't see them anymore. It was not a plane or any aircraft mad by man. It was entirely to high for any aircraft and there were no red flashing lights. I'm a firm believer that we are not alone,and I'm 100% sure that we experienced and had our first sighting of a massive group of UFOs this statement is a 100% correct and true I will even take a lie detector test. WE ARE NOT ALONE!
As well, here's a blog comment I received from a reader named Theresa Meyer:
Saturday, June 1, 2013. ~930am. Austin Texas. Sighting of bright white lights moving from south to north, approximately 50-75 all in a formation. There were no trails on the end of the bright white lights moving accross the sky. There were a few that were behind the trail of light. These looked as if they could have been meteors. It was the most incredible sighting I have ever seen.
