A really detailed report of UFOs over the Dallas area from about 20 years ago, is just now surfacing online. Jeff submitted a testimony to me of mysterious orbs he had seen while driving home with a friend one morning. He compared his sighting to footage purportedly taken in the 80s in England (watch and compare below), but made sure to clarify that the UFO she saw moved slower, and also exhibited other slight differences:
" This took place roughly 20 years ago and I have told a small handful of people about it. I've never written or typed out a description before. Details of time and place are not clear. A friend of mine at the time, David, and I were driving to his home in Justin, TX, which is west of DFW airport. It was daytime, I think a.m. We drove a route he had driven countless times as he is from that area. There is a lot of open land out there. The scenery is cut up between wooded area and open field on either side of the highway. To our right, as we passed some woods it opened into a field of tall browned grass reaching maybe 2ft high in some areas. I was looking off in that direction, to the right, when I saw 2 objects seemingly the size of birds. I think they were about 50 ft from the road in the field of tall brown grass. As the 2 objects rose from the field the began almost circle around each other and not great speed, but not slowly. As the objects rose they also slowly were flying toward the road we were on. As my eyes followed them across I could see in my peripheral view David leaning his body toward the window and his head turning up to also follow what I was seeing as I asked him if he was seeing what I'm seeing and he said yes. By the time they were in front and above us their shape and characteristics changed. The best description for what we saw was to 3 dimensional objects becoming flat and thin and possibly formed into one object and then vanished. It looked like a piece of film strip waving in the wind and disappeared. Its distance from us is hard to recall, but at the moment I'm thinking at least 100ft by the time it was passing over the highway.
What do you think about this case? Do you think the sighting from the 80s in England, and this one from the early 2000s in Texas, could be related?
Let me know what you think here in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter!

A sighting of "two large dark objects" silently flying over the Dallas area has been submitted to MUFON (case 122509).
Although the testimony is brief, two daytime photos were submitted along with it:

"My other friend and I were so scared that we took off running to our homes" - Witness Recalls Childhood UFO Sighting in the Dallas Area
Here's an oldie, but a goodie. According to a MUFON report (case 83420) I just stumbled upon, a "huge metallic cigar-shaped UFO" was seen over a neighborhood in Texas by two friends who were playing outside:
It was 1975 I was 12 years old, I looked up and saw a huge metallic cigar shaped UFO
A UFO sighting from more than a decade ago is just now being reported to MUFON by a "MUFON field investigator trainee." The witness wrote a thorough and detailed description of seeing a strange ball of light in over their home:
New Year's Day: Bright, Intense Red/Orange Light
The witness compares their sighting to another sighting that reportedly happened during the same time frame in Florida. I personally found numerous UFO reports on MUFON and NUFORC from December 31st, 2012, so I narrowed them down to Texas, and was left with only several. The most compelling of those was one out of Richmond, Texas (Houston area), in which the witness described seeing an "amber," "weird-looking light" that, upon closer inspection, appeared to be attached to a black triangle (case 45006):
The shape was triangle and it has a front light that was amber in color. The UFO did not make any sound.
Now, as for the country at large, as I mentioned, many people were seeing strange orange lights in 2012. However these could be attributed to Chinese lanterns, drones, or other man-made or even natural explanations. It's hard to know without further investigation. Here's an example of the types of reports that seem to have been fairly common in 2012 (case 45035 out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana). As always, you be the judge on whether or not you think this anomalous or easy to explain:
Bright Gold light that came from the South went against the wind and headed south.

Well, it seems Twitter agrees...this was no UFO at all, but a solar balloon! (See photos below.) I think this is a very fair theory. However, the trouble is I can't 100% verify that there was a solar balloon in the area at the time. After all, it appears most solar balloons are toys and used for recreation, so there wouldn't be a way to track them. According to world-weather.info, it was sunny in Dallas with little to no wind, and so it is possible this large solar balloon could have been hovering for a while:

As of today, I am still looking into this case. In fact, I'd like to share a comment from a possible witness to ANOTHER UFO just like this one! Maybe it can shed some new light on everything... Richard P writes: "I got pictures only. I was a passenger in my work truck. I was able to shoot pic burst on my iPhone. I was at Spring Valley and Dallas North Tollway. I first noticed it driving east on 635. Once we exited onto the service road, it was still just sitting there. I watched but never saw it moving. We continued driving till i got close enough to photograph it a few seconds at the light at the Spring Valley light. The photo doesn't give it justice...I’m still baffled with lots of unanswered questions. I don't know of anything besides a helicopter that can just sit still in the sky."
Updated story October 2019:
TexasUFOSightings has received a new report of this strange hovering "black pipe" over Dallas! The second potential witness of this UFO just wrote in about what they saw, and they also claim to have video footage. I haven't seen the video yet, but I wanted to share the compelling report in the meantime: "On sept 27,2019 at 10:52 am I was driving north on the Dallas north tollway just south of the 635 interchange. I spotted in the air to my right a long black pipe in the air. the pipe was motionless. It is the same object that I saw reported on your site for the same day. I captured a brief video of the object on my cell phone."
A dark, rod-shaped object was photographed in the daytime sky over Dallas. According to the witness, who submitted a report to MUFON (case 103638), the UFO was totally stationary, ruling out a balloon:
Something just sitting in the sky
What do you think of this photo? Does it show a UFO? Or is it a misidentification (blimp, party balloon, weather balloon), or even a hoax? Or could this be a real unidentified flying object; other cigar UFOs have been reported in Texas this month, so perhaps it is all connected!
