Many were witness to some strange activity in the Pflugerville sky.
For starters, a Texan driving on the road spotted several bright orange/white lights in the sky, rotating around in triangle formations and then disappearing. People in the car next to this witness also saw them and were staring up in awe. Later, the witness talked up a local police officer about the sighting, but he hadn't heard about it yet.
While we don't have photos or videos, we do have a description of the event, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader (this is in addition to a separate vaguer report TUS received from the same evening):
At 7:20 pm tonight, I pulled up to the red light at 10th street and 1825 in Pflugerville - I was on 10th, about to make a right onto 1825, so my car was facing north east. There was a car on my left that was either going to go straight or make a right, sitting at the red light (a silver Lexus I think). It was dark, but a very clear, crisp night.

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.

The fantastic local UFO investigator Sunny, of Lights in the Texas Sky, came across a fantastic photo of a UFO over Downtown Dallas. A comment on her site about a recent sighting eventually led to this photo:
Lights in the Texas Sky and TUS have received reports of square or even saucer shaped metal objects flying slowly through the sky. Previously, triangle shaped crafts seemed to be everywhere, but a new trend is emerging.
Here's the scoop on this Dallas photo:
It was 10am January 1. We were headed east on I30 @ the Beckley exit, the object was rectangular and appeared to be over the downtown area. It seemed metallic or reflective and moving too slow to be an airplane. It quickly moved out of view but when we got on 75 north clear of downtown you could see it off in the distance to the northeast. We see planes flying in and out of Love Field all the time and this was like nothing we had ever seen. It wasn't as long as a 737 but was taller.
And apparently this is one of many reports like this! Have you seen a square shaped object flying around in Texas lately? Report your sighting!
What say you? Blimp, balloon, bird? And if this is something "mundane," why are Texans suddenly sseeing these everywhere? Share your ideas in the comments!
Way down in South Texas, a pair of friends witnessed a strange light or air craft slowly and silently move across the sky. The same time of the sighting, family nearby heard a sound that reminded them of a "huge gush of air swirling over them."
Check out the photo and witness description, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader:
My friend and i were outside her home in mission last night when we say a round shaped object gliding not too high above us. It was slowly moving from north west toward the south. It was a bright firelike orange in color. It made no noise at all but moved too slow and too low to be a regular air craft. At the same time my family in a different part of town said the heard a very loud strange and unfamiliar noise that also felt like a slight tremble. They say it sounded like a huge gush of air swirling over them. I got a couple of pics but because i was so freaked out and shocked, i took them a little too far and blurry. I have become a believer in UFO's!!! I want to know if anyone else saw what we saw last night.I have two pics but for some reason i could only load up one on here
Do you live in South Texas, did you see this strange object? Report your sighting!
A Texan watched a variety of UFOs dart around the sky and also hover in mid air for a half hour. While there are no photos or videos for this one, here's the detailed description kindly submitted by a TUS reader:
White lights in the shape of circles circling the sky shooting off in all different directions and disappearing and then four long block shaped lights hovering in a circle and some shooting off to the right and disappearing.There also seemed to be a large circle in the middle of these lights.The first sighting lasted for about 15 minutes. The second has been going on for over 30 minutes.
Could this have been a light show or a series of explosions? I'm scratching my head as to what this witness could have seen. If you witnessed this, send TUS a report!
