A mysterious and large dark black sphere was seen over Arlington, Texas. The witness sent in a description of the UFO to NUFORC (case S142195):
Black sphere about the size of a large airplane very slowly moving then as I pointed to it out it sped off very extremely fast.
What is interesting is this report is similar to one from May in Puerto Rico:
Many Texans have been seeing strange and seemingly large spheres glide through the daytime sky. In fact, TexasUFOs just received a report of a UFO that matches the same description of another UFO spotted on the same day and in the same area of Texas.
But could these witnesses really just be seeing weather balloons? Check out the latest photo and testimony, and then compare it to other recent sightings, as well as a photo of a weather balloon!, and be the judge yourself:

Lee from Lake Whitney writes:
Looked like some kind of bubble, or balloon. Maybe a weather balloon. Floated across sky very slowly, as if it was riding the wind. Was very high, past the clouds as the clouds kept hiding it. No noise, smells or anything. Just a big bubble floating in the sky. Was a new one for me.

While it was the eyewitness reports of three respected university professors that brought credibility to the Lubbock Lights case of 1951, it was unversity freshman Carl Hart, Jr.'s eyewitness photograph that brought the US Air Force down to investigate.
Less than five years after a UFO famously crash-landed in Roswell, multiple residents of Lubbock, Texas witnessed an incredible fleet of solid, white orbs of light fly in a V shape overhead. It was Texas Tech professors Dr. Oberg, a chemical engineer, Dr. Ducker, a petroleum engineer, and Dr. Robinson, a geologist, who were the quickest to report the sighting. The three men were visiting with each other in of the men's backyards when they watched 20+ mysterious lights fly over them in a matter of seconds around 9 PM on August 25th, 1951.
If that wasn't amazing enough, a freshman at the university the professors taught at, Carl Holt, Jr., also witnessed the same phenomenon, but several days later, on August 30th. Fortunately, he was able to snap five photos of the event, which to this day, are some of the most famous UFO photos ever taken. The photos were first published in the the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, and then in a 1952 edition of Life magazine featuring Marilyn Monroe on the cover.
About a month after this wave of reports, Project Bluebook (AKA Project Sign), the official government organization for investigating UFOs at the time, got involved. Lieutenant Ed Ruppelt, a former Army Air Force pilot, led the Project Bluebook investigation and interviewed the witnesses directly. He later went on to write a book about the case.
The accounts and photographs of the Lubbock Lights were ultimately proven to be authentic, and the Lubbock Lights case remains open to this day.
However, early on in the investigation, many assumed that the awestruck witnesses of the Lubbock Lights had really just seen a flock of birds, specifically plovers, whose bellies were reflecting the street lights from down below. A plover, by the way, is a water bird that had indeed been seen in Lubbock that month. However, this theory was tested and put to rest eventually.
Lt. Ed Ruppelt ended up concluding that there was a natural, prosaic explanation for the lights. However, he unfortunately would not reveal it. Ruppelt met with a man who was able to explain the case via a serious of investigations he'd done. However, Ruppelt traded the man's anonymity for his silence:
From Roswell Books:
This frustrating and teasing tidbit has led many UFO researchers to wonder if the Lubbock Lights could be similar to other famous "UFO" cases that most people now believe to have a natural origin, like the Hessdalen Lights in Norway or the Marfa lights in Texas.

A mysterious light was filmed hovering in the night sky over North Central Austin, according to a recent YouTube video that was posted, along with a witness description of the event. Could this video simply show a star (possibly Saturn?) or satellite, however, versus a "UFO" or alien spaceship? As always, you be the judge:
Aliens! UFO(s) over Austin!
If you have also seen strange lights over Texas, or anywhere for that matter!, report your sighting.
