Did Texans glimpse the Lyrid meteor shower this month - ahead of schedule?
While star gazing calendars didn't expect the Lyrids until the 22nd of April, many locals reported seeing a large, fantastic fireball on the 20th and 21st, days after other meteors were seen in other parts of the world - along with many earthquakes.
Reports were sent to NUFORC and AMSMeteors.org, detailing a large fiery object in the sky, flashes of light, and power outages:
San Antonio on April 21st (NUFORC):
A Beautiful Rock full of different colors in the sky.
Jerrell and Laredo on April 20th (NUFORC):
Sky flashed white, then reddish orange glow for 20 seconds.

A Texas couple witnessed and filmed some strange lights or crafts or chemicals(?) over Ozona, Texas and sent the footage and testimony to MUFON. The experience was an incredible one for the couple, as you can tell in their written description and in the audio of the video. Check it out:
My wife and I were driving north bound on hwy 137 between Ozona and Big Lake Tx. We noticed these interesting cloud formations to our west. There was a thunderstorm approximately 20-30 miles ahead of us. In the cloud formation there was a gap of blue sky being slowly surrounded, and in the center was hovering a single white/bright oval object. As I showed my wife, the object disappeared. A few seconds later it reappeared still hovering as white line/cigar shaped object, then darted south behind a cloud. Next it came out of the cloud with another white/bright line/cigar shaped object. Both objects where heading south. The second object changed from cigar-shaped to circular. Then another object appeared as a fireball or asteroid shaped object with a trail of flames. In an instant it stopped its path. At the same time the first object seemed to change into an oval shape. Now all three objects appeared oval shaped. They stopped as if to communicate and the first and third object headed north/northwest. The second traveled south/southeast as it changed back into a line/cigar shape. It appeared to get larger and larger as if it was getting closer and closer to us. It's outline was fuzzy almost hazy and then it disappeared. The other two remained oval and then ducked behind the thunderstorm ahead. We noticed later that the gas gauge wasn't to empty and the check engine light was on. My wife stated that her face felt hot. We both felt excited and anxious. The experience was like nothing we've ever seen before. And we both feel like it was definitely something out of the norm.

A YouTube video showing two distinct lights traveling, and occasionally hovering, has been posted:
This sighting was in TOMBALL Texas and as you can see the rings open in and out they also stay still and if they do move they move only around each other. This is similar to the sighting that was found in Australia in February. I call this UFO the "Red Ring UFO"
Could this simply be Chinese lanterns, as one person suggests in the comments on the YouTube video? Or something more mysterious? Share your thoughts in the comments or on the Facebook page.
And as always, if you've seen a UFO in Texas recently, report your sighting!
Texas UFO Sightings received a report of a low and silent-flying V-shaped craft over Canyon Lake. "Early Riser" shared photo and testimony:
Was heading to work and saw a low bright light over the lake with no flashing lights. I took a picture of it right above the fog. It was about a mile away at that point. When I drove through startzville this light came very slowly over my truck threw the fog. I stopped and got out of my truck to see 3 bright white lights in triangle formation with a pink light in the middle slowly pulsing. This light was only about 200ft above me. The bright lights with the fog made it hard to see any type of structure but this thing was low enough to reflect light off of my truck. It was moving at about 30 mph heading west then once it was right over me it turned northwest and disappeared into the fog. The only pic I was able to get was when it was far away and over the lake. I was awestruck when it came over my truck. The lights were about 75ft apart from each other. This thing made no noise and at 4:40 am it's pretty quite. If it happens again I will pick my jaw off the floor and try to take a closer picture.

El Paso has been visited by many UFOs of late - yesterday, someone reported seeing two balls of white light travel parallel to each other, and on the 9th, according to a MUFON report, a green oval shaped object was hovering over the city.
Well. now a YouTube video of a recent El Paso UFO sighting has been posted. In the video, you can see a line or outline of a craft, or flock of birds(?) as one commenter suggests:
I'm not lying this is I'm very astonished about what I saw.
