A large, flaming object was seen and filmed hovering over a neighborhood in Alvin, Texas, according to a recent video uploaded to YouTube:
TexasUFOs will follow up for more information, but in the meantime, if you also live in Alvin, and you also saw this UFO, report your sighting!

A local meteorologist in Hereford noticed an anomaly on the weather radar for Lubbock, Texas - specifically a large hovering object that doesn't act like a cloud or other typical weather pattern. The witness attached photos and a video (scroll down) of the radar to a MUFON report:
Anomaly measured on Lubbock, Texas weather radar (KLBB) at approx 7K feet. Is stationary through several radar cycles. The same object does not appear when viewed from the Amarillo, Texas radar (KAMA) where the beam intersects the same area at approx 4K feet. Meaning, that the Amarillo radar beam passed "under" the object that reflected a signal to the Lubbock radar when sensed the object at 7K feet. I'm a meteorologists and have been using radar remote sensing for 20-years, this object isn't "weather" such as a cloud as it does not move in a lateral direction through several radar cycles.
Do you live in the Alvin or Houston area? Did you see anything strange in the sky around this time that could help explain this sighting? Report your sighting.
Do you understand weather radar? Know what this could be? Chime away in the comments or on the Facebook page.
10/20 Update: A similar sighting occurred in nearby Galveston a night later.
Olga submitted a curious photo to TUS - of a fiery red line seemingly shooting down (or up) in the night sky. Could be the trail of a meteor or flare or... something far stranger. Here's the photo and brief description of what she saw:
Red light that looked like a knife then turned orange didn't think anything about it til this morning when I looked up why it was in the sky
Someone has spotted a black triangle craft slowly moving over Alvin, TX on May 20th. They snapped a few pictures of the craft, but nothing can really be made out of the photos ('read more' to view them). However, the witness offers up a detailed description and drawing of the sighting.
Here's the full MUFON report:
I am a professional photographer with 7 years of experience. I have a wide scope of projects I have completed ranging from architecture, to events, fashion, landscape, commercial, art, etc.. I was leaving a wedding that I had photographed in Alvin, Texas on 5/20/2012. I observed what looked like a plane in the distance while driving south-west on County Road 539 at 1:25AM. I almost ignored the lights in the sky when I noticed that there was a strange pulse of orange light coming from the object. I slowed down and kept watching the craft. There was a small red-light at each point of the triangular shaped craft (very similar to those on an aircraft). The craft started to get larger and I could see it was coming closer. I started to believe that it was the top of a tower or antenna due to the low altitude and pulsing. (The orange light on the bottom of the craft would get bright for 2 seconds and dim. This would repeat every 2 seconds.) I saw that it was passing to my left about 200 feet away just above the tree lines over the Alvin Golf Country Club. There was a break in the tree-line and I actually slowed and finally stopped the car when I saw clearly a black triangle shape passing by slowly. It was silently and steadily moving about 15-20mph heading north-east. I had my driver-side window down and watched as it flew past me and my car. I immediately grabbed my camera and made a U-Turn to follow it and attempt to snap some photographs. I hurriedly and excitedly snapped 4 photographs before it disappeared into the distance on its north-east path around 1:30AM. I was doing this while driving so the photographs have motion blur. I have attached two of the photographs of the object where it can be seen as well as a rough-sketch from my perspective in the car. Some interesting observations: -The craft was BLACK- although the sky was dark, I could easily see a dark triangular shape against the dark sky. -The craft was also relatively thick. I would say that it was about 15 feet tall at most and about as big as a large car. By my estimation, it would fit perfectly on a two-car driveway that many homes have. -The edges were not sharp but rounded. -I was shocked at how silent it was when it passed. -The pulsing light gave me the impression that it was a kind of signal to let other flying planes or helicopters see that it was there to prevent a crash.
Remember those famous blinking lights in Texas City that made the national news, and all the recent reports of falling space objects? Well, we've got a familiar-feeling report coming from MUFON. A woman witnessed a light green light shoot down from the sky and even tried to investigate the crash landing, to no avail. Here's the full report for the April 25th sighting:
I went outside on my back porch to smoke a cigg. I was talking with my husband and then right over my neighbors house I seen a small green light fall from the sky straight down. I waited for about 1 min.And then I turned to my husband and told him I just seen a small green light fall from the sky. He looked at me like I was crazy. I know what I saw. My husband and I got into our car and drove down the road to see if we could see anything. And of course there was nothing to be seen. The light I seen was light green it glowed kinda looked like a flare. It was falling downward. I never saw it again after driving back home.
