A couple in South Texas watched a very large star-like object, glowing in the night sky and moving very quietly but erratically about. What's especially intriguing about this sighting is apparently it's not the first of its kind: the pair of witnesses have spotted this 5 other times.
Here's the full report, submitted to MUFON:
I was indoors while my wife was out on the front porch stargazing. She saw what looked like a bright planet in the western sky that she had not noticed before so she focused on it for a minute. The object began to move very slowly towards the south. The object moved so slowly that at first she was not sure it was moving. When she was sure the object was indeed moving she came inside to get me. I went outdoors and observed a bright glowing planet sized object approx 75 degrees above the western horizon traveling south at approx 5000 feet elevation. Grabbed a pair of binoculars that we keep on a porch table and observed the object best described as a luminescent pearl that wobbled erratically as it moved silently across the night sky. The object continued on it's southern trajectory as it traveled out of sight. The entire sighting lasted between two to three minutes. Went back outside about 10 minutes later to look for more objects but none were observed. This is the sixth time we have observed this and similar phenomenon at this location.
If you're into UFOs, you're not new to the Marfa lights, which are regulars. Bright orbs pop up in the same spot in Marfa routinely and have been around for centuries, and to this day, they've eluded explanation. Well, maybe they've got company. A husband and wife witnessed several bright, red lights in the sky, hovering and twinkling, and then taking off into the night sky. That last part, of course, is what makes these lights true-blue UFOs.
What's really spooky, however, is after several minutes of watching the UFOs, the couple was escorted away from the area by border patrol. But being so close to Mexico, that's not necessarily unusual.
Apparently, there is video of this sighting, but it's yet to surface on the web. I'll post it here if I'm able to get my hands on it! Later on that evening, many Texans - from all over the state - witnessed anomalies in the sky. Could these events be related?
Here's the full MUFON report:
