We've got a pretty harrowing UFO encounter to share, and fortunately it was captured on video. Two friends were driving through Brady, Texas, and after running over a bob cat who popped up on the road out of nowhere (scary!), they then noticed some very bright lights in the sky. At first, they thought car lights on a hill, and then they realized there were no hills and the lights were actually in the sky. The huge, bright lights floated around the sky, sparkling like fireflies, and even forming a triangle. They also dwarfed a plane that flew by. Shortly after this sighting, a bunch of jets filled the sky. This is not an uncommon occurrence after a UFO sighting!
The video, which (warning) features some strong language, apparently doesn't do the UFOs justice - according to the witness testimony.
These are definitely not planes or satellites. Could they be military flares or Chinese lanterns? (They don't quite fit that bill exactly, especially considering their apparent size, but it can't be ruled out.) Regardless, this was quite the UFO sighting. If you saw something in the Brady area on the night of May 3rd, let me know!
In the meantime, here's the full report, submitted to Texas UFO sightings. As well as the video (below):
A friend and i were headed to Austin and driving through Brady. As we were driving we notices lights in the distance. I noticed that they were very bright but assumed that they were just of a car coming down a hill in the distance. Then after a moment i realized that i was not in a place where there were hills. I also started to realize that the lights we saw were way brighter the the car lights on the highway further up. But now they had disappeared. :( I told her to get her camera out and be ready to record anything if they came back. we shrugged it off and started to get back at singing our heads of. With in moments a bob cat ran out in front of us and i ran over him going about 75 miles an hour.... our adrenaline was on high at this point. almost exactly a minute later I was on the phone with a friend telling him about the cat and the crazy lights that we saw. All of a sudden to my left i saw the lights again. this time they were much closer and bigger. what i saw was the lights in the shape of a triangle. they were huge and very very bright. That was probably the thing i noticed the most.... they were like fire. they would come on and off and as they did that they changed in color. Keep in mind i was driving so i didn't get to stop and stare and when i tried the passenger in my car was freaking out! I did notice that there was a plane flying near by. the plane was A speckle in comparison to the lights. We did get a video, but it was the girl freaking out that video taped it.... so it isn't great and she is screaming the whole time. ha ha I don't even feel it looks close to anything we saw but it is all we have! A friend of mine found this site and wanted me to share our experience. Afterwards we drove to the next gas station which was about 2-3 miles away from where we saw everything when we looked up all we could hear were jets flying above us... and it was not just one jet it was a handful. they were flying chaotically in all kinds of directions and then all just flew away! Craziest thing i have ever experienced and i have been anxious to know more about what was going on! i hope the video uploads and doesnt annoy anyone... again, its all we have!
Here's the video:
And a few great quotes from it:
there are these lights... fucking like 3 lights... they are just like floating around each other
