A bright white ball of light was filmed slowly ascending above a building in El Paso. Toward the end of the 1:17 video, the UFO speeds up and a red light blinks on it. So, could this just be a misidentified drone? Watch the video and let me know what you think. I've reached out to the witness for more information, so I will keep this story updated as I learn more:
An El Paso resident, who would like to be known as "S," was working in their backyard when they heard and then spotted a blimp overhead. So, they took some photos of the blimp, but weren't able to identify any markings on it. Later when viewing photos of the blimp, they noticed something strange flying next to it... a large, dark, and mysterious rod-shaped object:
I was working in my backyard when I heard a strange aerial engine noise. I then realized that it sounded like a blimp and when I saw it I noticed that it had no markings on it. I quickly snapped three photos of it on my cellphone but what struck me was that it was flying by at very fast rate of speed. I wasn't sure if it was due to strong wind currents above as it was calm where I was. Later that evening, I took out my cellphone to show my family the photos when I noticed an object in the last frame underneath the blimp.
I was able to find another mention of a blimp seen over El Paso from May 2019, but that's as far as my trail has taken me so far. I'll be reaching out to Goodyear, and following up with the witness for more detail, but in the meantime, let me know what you think!
Could this be an object or banner hanging from the blimp, as part of an advertising campaign or even a military exercise? Or perhaps this is just a piece of dust on the lens, considering the witness didn't see it with their naked eye.
If it is a UFO, one has to wonder why it's flying right below an unmarked blimp!
A swarm of UFOs were seen over the US and many cities in Texas, mostly during the dates of April 15th through the 17th, but there seemed to be some sightings a bit before and after that. So far, many are concluding that these UFOs were simply Starlink satellites. Though I personally don't believe that every case I'm encountering can be easily explained away as that. As well, there were reports of the Starlink satellite launch being delayed and not even happening at all!
What do you think of this recent mass sighting? Are aliens visiting America? Or are satellites just getting bigger and brighter and scarier than ever?

April 17th in Horizon, Texas: The following witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings
Me and my husband went for a walk right now and witnessed about 10 orbs. One by one appear right under the huge bright star out there right now. They were in the same flight path. They could come in glow extremely bright and take off towards the west. We are in horizon. One would appear then charge up and go then another would come in and go ...one after another after another. It was so scary we rushed home. I tried to take a video but it would only show Venus or whatever huge star that is out there
April 16th in Garland, Texas: The following witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings by Gregg
While out at 10 ish PM 4/16/20 looking at the bright planet Venus that was out that night I observed 12 moving white bright objects. Each object appeared about 3 seconds a part above Venus and went from left to right then each fading out. Maybe three objects were on a path a little below the others.The third one that appeared flashed very bright. My brother texted me an hour later from Allan, Texas saying he saw them. From my brothers point of view he thinks he saw some colored lights on some. At first I thought they were maybe Elon Musk satellites but the one flashing very bright and the short appearance path make me think they were not Musk satellites. I hope someone else saw them and got pictures and video.
April ?? in Dallas, Texas: Witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings by Crystal G
We were outside in the front yard Burning a fire. As we are talking our neighbor who is sitting looking North notices what appears to be a star moving than he sees another one. My husband and I look and WOW those were no stars. My husband goes and gets our oldest son to witness this as well. We are unsure how many were passing by but it was more than 20 that we noticed possibly more than that. As we try to investigate further it looked like they were coming out of a giant star in the sky! I mean they were coming out of nowhere it was crazy. You could see one come from the top and than the bottom and just keep going northeast. I turned my cell phone and recorded of course it's not the best video and has a lot of cussing, but you can see the UFOs moving across the sky. I was trying to look up and see where I can find out if anyone else saw anything.
A video showing some solid lights slowly moving over a roadway in El Paso, Texas has been uploaded to YouTube, supposedly by the witness, who wrote in the video caption "Esferas rojas como lumbre," which translates to "Red spheres like fire." Media outlets, including the Daily Star, picked up on the story. Could these UFOs really just be misidentified Chinese lanterns or should this case remain open? As always, you be the judge:
A video of a solid bright red ball of light slowing traveling around in the nighttime sky has been uploaded to YouTube. The footage appears to be taken through a car windshield, which makes sense because the UFO first appeared to the witness over their vehicle:
"Was seen minutes before rising and disappearing only to reappear above my vehicle I stopped to record what appears to be a red orb grazing the night sky. I lost track of the red orb with my camera but moments later it was seen descending into an inaccessible arroyo of west side El Paso Texas."
The most obvious explanation I can think of is drone, but there are no clear flashing navigation lights -- but just as well, should we ignore every possible drone sighting? As our own craft get more and more advanced, how will we distinguish ours from the ET's? In my opinion, the only way we can do that is to continue to review and compare all the evidence, as objectively as possible.
