An extremely bright and large orb hovered high up in the night sky for several minutes near Fort Hood, according to a recent report submitted to MUFON (case 83602). The witness snapped a photo:
I was leaving work and about to get in my truck when I saw the object in the sky to the SW of my position. Object was bright and too big to be a star or planet. It was not the moon. Object seemed textured, almost like a mirror ball, and appeared about the diameter of a dime held at arms length in the sky. The object just hovered in the sky and did not move. I heard no sound other than that of traffic but I don't think the object was close to me. I had the impression it was very large but a good ways off. I watched approximately 10 minutes and then it was just gone. I never saw it move. It just wasn't there anymore.
Could this be a military craft, as the witness suggested, considering the close proximity to Fort Hood? Or could this be alien? It doesn't appear to be a typical plane, drone, satellite, or weather balloon, that's for sure! Share your theories about this UFO sighting in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
