Although no photos or videos were taken of the amazing encounter, eight witnesses in total lived to tell about it. In the fall of 1966, eight male construction workers were digging in a rural area north of Edinburgh, Texas when a UFO approached them. The men panicked and it's possible that they shot their guns up at the UFO. The mysterious craft then reportedly shot down beams of light onto their construction site, which subsequently caught on fire. The entire site, including two vehicles and a small mobile home or RV, was destroyed. Another local reported seeing a cigar-shaped UFO in the area around the same time, and so this may be the same UFO that caused all the destruction. Scroll down for photos, video and more about this incredible Texas UFO case:
The sheriff of Donna, Texas at the time (just 25 minutes from Edinburg) later shared that he had been approached by people dressed in military uniforms who asked about the UFO report. Sheriff E. E. Vickers believed the people were from the nearby Moore Air Base.

Lights slowly changing formations over Edinburg
When I viewed the video pf the strange lights moving over Edinburg, TX, I really thought they looked like cars moving over a hill or street line obscured by the nighttime sky. However, the YouTuber - Battlefieldmember03 - who posted the sighting has confirmed that she or he was indeed only looking up at the sky:
there is no hills on Edinburgh tx. And I confirm that iam not on a hill , it was ground zero just looking up the sky
Here's the video again:
Edinburg TX Lgiths
An Edinburg, TX resident filmed a line of lights in the nighttime sky. They blink and change formations... are these lights from a car, or something even more mundane? A bit more context would be helpful for understanding this sighting.
