4/18 Update: Other UFOs by the moon were also reported on this evening in the Dallas area.
A few Texans were up very late on the night of the 15th hoping to watch the Lunar Eclipse and they saw much more than the legendary Blood Moon... UFOs!
In Austin and Temple (both in Central Texas), a silent formation of white lights - V and boomerang shaped at times - attempted to steal the spotlight from the gorgeous eclipse.
Thomas R kindly submitted testimony from a sighting at East Stassney in Austin:
My Roomate and I were watching the blood moon and at about 2:40 am when a series of lights in a very large v shape formation appeared just north of us and moved quickly east before they vanished. The formation did not make any noise.
As well, Daniel R of Temple was also gracious enough to share a very detailed testimony of a similar encounter:
We set the alarm for 2am to go out and see the lunar eclipse. Walked out the front door at 2:05. About 2:10am my wife said, "what is that". Directly above me standing in the street we saw 4 objects go by, south to north , oblong shape oriented like you would see birds wings in flight. The relative size was about the width of my fingernails at arms length, moving fairly fast. "That is strange, why would birds be flying at night," I said. It was very dark since the moon was fully eclipsed with the typical red faint glow. My wife said, "Birds don't glow in the dark". I then realized we were seeing UFOs. I had my IPHONE out and had taken a picture of the moon which came out faintly, but these were faint enough not to be picked up. Tried several times. My wife though they had a slight boomerang shape. They went from overhead banking to the left west. The angle was at about 10 o'clock then. They reversed position backtracking back to the north also at 10 o'clock, then back west and disappeared. Although they were together, each moved independently, sometimes close together and other times spread out somewhat, not a rigid formation. The total view time was about 20 seconds. We were excited. Still standing there talking about it, they came back again, this time though further away, about 1/4 the diameter of my finger nails at arms length. This time I counted the seconds of appearance, 32 seconds. Again coming from the south, making a circle of 270 degrees at 10 o'clock, disappearing into the west again. Sometimes closely packed, weaving back and forth eventually into a line almost straight spaced by about 3 finger widths between each. We stayed in the street until 2:50am, but no more activity, so went in. I have never seen anything like this except on TV footage. Finished typing this at 4:05am.
Have you seen these UFOs recent? Report it!
