The recent UFO sighting over ACL has spurred quit the conversation online! Many have been quick to debunk these ominous red lights, which formed a clear-cut triangle and quietly lurked over a Cure concert, as Chinese lanterns. A few people have chimed in to say they SAW a launch of Chinese lanterns that evening.
A few problems... the videos and photos don't show typical Chinese lanterns. I don't care if you happened to see someone also launching lanterns that evening, this is not what the videos or photos or eyewitness accounts depict.
Chinese lanterns or not, sightings of V and triangle-shaped crafts (from Austin to Seguin to Amarillo, and more) with red lights have skyrocketed for Texas over the past several weeks.
Just today, TUS received an exclusive report out of San Antonio of "3 sets of 3 glowing red orbs in the distant, the three orbs formed triangle." It was made by a former military member who's used to seeing all kinds of things in the sky... but he was downright baffled by this sight.
Here's one of the latest and greatest videos to come from the recent mass UFO sighting in Austin at ACL (pictured above)... what say you, Internet? Chinese lanterns?
"They came for the Cure
And here's another fresh account of what went down in Austin that night, kindly submitted to TUS by Lisa Farwell-Matthews:
We were enjoying The Cure concert at the Austin City Limits Music Festival when I looked up at the search lights pointed over the Lady Bird stage and saw three distinct orange lights in a triangular shape moving slowly over the crowd. I initially thought of flares, but these three lights did not drift or move out of their triangular configuration. Someone suggested Chinese lanterns, but again, these lights remained in a static triangular shape where lanterns would have drifted apart. My friend also saw them. I fumbled with my phone to photograph them and attempted to take a video. I understand now why UFO photos always look like they do. I was shaking and captured one grainy photo, but you can see the three lights in a triangle. We watched them for approximately 2 minutes as they moved slowly west before disappearing into the clouds. I have to say, if that really was a UFO, it was the greatest sighting ever during The Cure's "Hot, Hot, Hot!"
As well as more testimony, courtesy of YouTube comments:
I was there, and others reported seeing it move across the festival. Apparently there was another red object and a "scout"craft that was aboved and just took off. I initially thought of chinese lanterns but decided that was not the case.
So, what do you guys think? Do we have an invasion of Chinese lanterns that like to fly in triangle formation, or an invasion of unidentified flying triangles? As kooky as it sounds, the ladder's the best we can do right now!
Please let me know if you've seen this!
