According to video and testimony shared on an online forum, multiple reports of a fireball over the US were posted to Facebook, and along with it, many citizens experienced a brief flickering of lights. The bright meteor-like object was apparently spotted all over the countryside, from Texas to North Dakota, and during the same time frame, lights flickered in homes across Iowa and Nebraska, and possibly in New York too:
Home Security Camera captures flash of light:
Curiously enough, there were many verified reports of fireballs over Colorado, according to AMSMeteors.org, but they were from January 16th, a night after these events.

Jan 7th, 2018 Update: New photos of strange lights appearing near the SpaceX rocket have been submitted to MUFON (case 89382)... what could these lights be, UFOs, drones, reflections? If you live in California and witnessed the SpaceX launch on December 22nd, let me know if you saw any UFOs!
December 29th, 2017 Update: A new report and photo of strange green lights showing up alongside the surprising SpaceX rocket launch has been filed with MUFON (case 89155). This time, the witness was in Gardena, California. Compare the latest photo to the others below:
After the launch of a SpaceX rocket on December 22nd, 2017, many reports of a UFO were made as Californians were not expecting such a nighttime spectacle. Not to mention, the event occurred just a week after the New York Times reported on the Pentagon funding a secret, modern-day UFO research program.
However, even those who knew about the SpaceX news story still question it. Could a UFO really have been spotted over California, and did Elon Musk just help with a cover story? Or was the SpaceX rocket launch timed on purpose to occur after the New York Times article, in order to see how people would react?
Now, things get even weirder. Two separate witnesses (see MUFON cases 89100 and 89034) in West Hills and Westminster, California snapped of photos of strange green, unidentified lights alongside the headline-making SpaceX rocket:
It's very possible that these lights are simply lens artifacts or camera reflections, however considering that Elon Musk himself recently suggested a UFO (or mystery drone) was the cause of one of his past SpaceX rocket explosions, these photos are worth some investigation.

2018 is here and with that comes some fun reflection on all the UFO sightings and alien-related news from the past year. 2017 proved to be one of the most fruitful ever for UFO headlines, as you can see with this list. Scroll down to find out with Top 10 UFO and Alien News Stories from 2017 that got the most clicks on TexasUFOs.com:
10. Is Former FBI Director James Comey an Alien?
Former FBI director James Comey spoke some strange words while being interviewed by John McCain back in June of 2017, words that would trigger an Internet storm of rumors that Comey was not human, but instead an alien! Comey stated in a rather robotic way that he "had a lot of conversations with humans over the years." What makes this story all the more intriguing is that Comey used to be the vice president of Lockheed Martin, which has been part of UFO investigations before, and in 2014 when Comey worked under Obama, the Iranian news and even NPR reported on a rumor that Comey was a "Tall White Alien."
9. The Black Triangle UFO Sightings Continue
Dark, silent and sometimes hovering an even transparent triangle crafts have been spotted regularly since 2014, according to exclusive reports sent to TexasUFOs.com as well as reports sent into MUFON and local media outlets, and shared online through social media. Many theorize that these ships are top-secret military craft similar to the TR3B black triangles, which first started making appearances in the 1990s, while others believe these crafts are a part of UFO and alien disclosure and may indeed be extraterrestrial in origin.
8. Large Fireball Falls Over the US, Causes Tweet Storm
On the afternoon of October 8th, 2017, a very large fireball was seen crashing down in the daytime sky over the Northeast US. Hundreds of reports were sent into AMSMeteors.org and even into UFO news outlets like TexasUFOs. Even popular paranormal investigator Amy Bruni tweeted about the spectacular sky event. Many believe that meteors are getting larger and more frequent and may be a sign of earth changes to come.
7. UFO Zooms by Donald Trump's Plane on Inauguration Day
On January 20th, 2017, the day of President Trump's controversial inauguration, a UFO was caught on video zooming past Trump's private plane. Some speculate the object could simply be a bug or a bird, but many believe it was a true UFO that follows the pattern of other well-documented UFOs of showing up at historic events.
6. UFO Sighting and Possible Visit by Alien and Men in Black in Lubbock, Texas
A sighting of a blue-green beam of light followed by a possible alien abduction and even visit by a strange, unmarked black car (commonly reported by people who are visited by the "Men in Black") in July 2017 was reported to MUFON. As with other close encounters, the alien was described as being gray and telepathic.
5. Gray Aliens Invade Home in San Antonio, Texas
A terrifying encounter of multiple gray aliens creeping around a home in San Antonio, Texas in September 2017 was reported to MUFON. The witness also heard "static noises" and experienced symptoms of sleep paralysis common with alien abductions, going back as far as the "Roswell era" in the 50s.
4. Attempted Alien Abduction in Paris, Texas
Although alien abduction reports are common, they rarely ever come with tangible evidence, as victims seem to experience these sometimes scary and sometimes comforting ET encounters in a dreamlike state. The case in Paris, Texas from December 2017 was no exception, with the witness reporting a visit from a demonic male entity while they slept.
3. New York Times Reveals: US Government Investigate UFOs and Believes They Are Alien
The recent New York Times article that reported on the Pentagon's modern-day UFO research program, and the incredible beliefs held internally by many US government officials that aliens are visiting, was a sign for many that UFO and Alien Disclosure is finally here. While many in the public are still skeptical about UFO research, the US government has now officially admitted to the current presence of unidentified flying objects in our atmosphere, making for quite the historic moment.
2. Alien Body Discovered in Peru
A bizarre mummy of a three-fingered "humanoid" was discovered in Nazca, Peru and when the announcement was made by GAIA in June 2017, it caught the attention of the mainstream media. Many proclaimed the body to be a hoax or human in origin, but according to many sources, the body is still being investigated and early DNA testing may reveal it to be extraterrestrial.
1. UFO Crashes in San Antonio, Texas
On April 29th, 2017, I received a ton of reports of a fireball crashing down in San Antonio. One witness even said it looked like a "bomb!" Local media coverage was virtually absent, however I was able to get in touch with some meteorology and aviation experts who "debunked" the UFO as a jet with a contrail. The people who saw the event with their naked eye, however, would strongly disagree with that explanation.

A few days ago, the CIA tweeted a photograph of an alleged flying saucer over New Jersey, which was part of a massive wave of UFO sightings in 1952 that included the famous Washington DC UFO incident. In the same tweet, the CIA linked to a blog offering guidance on how to photograph UFOs:
Is this stunning tweet made by the US Central Intelligence Agency a part of UFO and Alien Disclosure? Is the CIA hinting to US citizens that they are about to see another UFO flap like in 1952, and so to have their cameras ready? Could the triangle UFO wave of the last few years be alien in origin?
Although the CIA released top-secret UFO files a while ago and also blogged about them a while ago, it is interesting that the agency is choosing to resurface this information right now, considering the New York Times just released an article revealing a top-secret modern-day UFO research program funded by the Pentagon.

Guillermo del Toro, the acclaimed director of Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and Trollhunters, saw a UFO and although it gave him a scare, he wasn't all that impressed by it in the end. According to an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, del Toro stated:
“You sound like a complete lunatic, but I saw a UFO. I didn't want to see a UFO... went from 1,000 meters away [to much closer] in less than a secon d... it was horribly designed ... It was so crappy .... It was a flying saucer, so clichéd, with lights [blinking]. It's so sad: I wish I could reveal they're not what you think they are. They are what you think they are.”
As amusing as del Toro's eyewitness testimony is, does it give credibility to other UFO reports of flying saucers, sometimes including hard-to-believe photos or videos? Share your thoughts on this celebrity UFO sighting and more in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
