A resident of El Lago, TX - that's right in between Houston and Galveston - and her kids spotted a large glowing object in the sky, headed their way. It then stopped and hovered over them, before shooting up into the night sky and darting the right before fading out.
The kids were witness to even more of this UFO before the mother - who submitted a report to MUFON - arrived at the scene. Here's her testimony (which accompanies the photo at the top right, taken by her daughter):
I had just got home with the kids. I went inside and the two teenage girls went to check the mail. Suddenly they started knocking on the kitchen window and called for me to go outside. I went outside with my younger daughter and saw them pointing at a large object in the sky. The object was orange/yellow in color. It was a disc/sphere. It looked like fire was coming out from the bottom. At first I thought it was a hot air ballon, but it was moving too fast. It travelled toward us, faster than a hot air balloon but slower than an airplane. It made no noise. It hovered near us for a few moments before it shot straight up into the air at a very high rate of speed. Then it changed direction to the right and appeared more white in color. Then it faded out of sight. The girls said that it changed directions and descended again over the trees and faded out, but I did not see that happen. We watched the object for several minutes before it shot of into the sky. My daughter took a couple of pictures with her cell phone. We really couldn't get a good shot to tell what it was or see any other details.
