12/4/2015 Update: This phenomenon appears to be happening nation-wide. Planet X or space object is not a good explanation, but some atmospheric event or something seems to have occurred
Texas UFO Sightings received two separate reports from two separate Texas cities - but they both occurred on the same night and detailed the same object! So, if this was a UFO, it was way, way up there.
One report is from reader John Smith, who snapped some photos of a rainbow-framed sunset and when he looked at the photos later, noticed a large round object in them. The other report is from reader Min A, a Dallas resident who also noticed the pretty rainbow at sunset and also photographed the object. Apparently she witnessed it with her own two eyes, though, and she has some pretty far-out theories about what it is (scroll down for her fantastical theory)...
I took 3 pictures of the sunset because the sun had a rainbow halo around it that night. After I got home and pulled up the picture on my phone, I noticed that something was in the sky that did not belong. So I zoomed in on the left side of the picture and saw an interesting object. A UFO?? Another planet??
I was driving on Preston Road from Royal Lane toward 635 Freeway yesterday afternoon at 4:18 pm.
What? Radiations? Frequency checking techniques? 우주선? Well, that last part is actually easy to translate: "Spaceship." That report is a fun and interesting read, for sure.
Regardless, I'd normally assume a photo like one of these is just showing a lens flare. And that is still probably the best explanation - after all, wouldn't a rainbow cause such a thing? However, the fact that Texas UFO Sightings received two reports of this, and that one of the witnesses appears to have seen it in person, I think it is worth sharing with the community. What do you think these photos show Eerie ominous-looking UFO or planet?, or harmless lens flare? Hoax? Share away in the comments or on the Facebook page.
Did you happen to see this object with your own two eyes? Can you help un-debunk this sighting? Report it!
