Texas has been real abuzz with UFO sightings of late. I recently caught wind that MUFON - a great UFO reporting database, but not the trustiest investigators - dubbed the recent Texas City lights as sky lanterns, while the Department of Homeland Security proclaimed hoax. The same explanation has been used for the most recent mass UFO sighting in San Antonio. However, the actual witness testimonies, duration, and ubiquitous of UFO sightings of late in Texas don't really fit that bill. Are sky lanterns our new weather balloons?
Here's a video of the Texas City lights:
Compare to sky lanterns:
And similar footage from a recent League City, TX sighting (which has also bled onto many other parts of Texas, and is not likely to be sky lanterns):
