Video and testimony has been sent to me that shows a thin, white, disc-shaped craft over Liberty Hill. While driving, Harold Abbott and his daughter witnessed a "half disc with 15 bright lights lining the edge;" and Harold was understandably amazed at such a sight!
He was able to capture footage of the object, but he admits that the grainy, dark quality of it does not do the sighting justice. It's better than nothing, though.
After viewing the footage, I can confirm that if you watch it up close and in high quality, you will indeed see the disc that Harold describes:
At first, no UFO can be seen:
But if you look closely, a thin white disc then appears:
With contrast added:
The camera then zooms out (or the object flies away), and the video is over:
We were stopped at the light and my daughter asked me what is that and when I looked up. It was night time and I could see like a half disc with about 15 bright lights lining the edge of the disc - like a half circle. And then puff it was gone - it was frickin' huge; I'll never forget it, as long as I live. I know what we saw, and it was like life changing. She took a video but it's so grainy that you can hardly see the lights. It all happen so fast
Credit to the UFOB twitter account for this great case:
According to an April 9th, 1950 news report in the Amarillo Sunday Times (I was not able to find the original issue, but there are a few references online), 12 and 9-year-old cousins, David and Charles Lightfoot, were out fishing when they first spotted a "balloon" in the sky - except upon closer inspection, it wasn't a balloon at all...
The two young boys could see the saucer in detail, and shared their encounter with reporters; David described the craft as "as big or round as a big automobile tire" and explained how "the bottom was still, but the top was spinning around real fast, and on the top of the part that was spinning around there was a little peak that had a kind of spindle thing sticking out of it. The spindle was still, too. It must have been connected to the bottom part."
After watching the saucer land, David ran up to it, and managed to touch it, before it took off "like it was on a string" and disappeared into the sky. The boy described the UFO as feeling "slick" and "hot," like a "snake would." His father said the boy had an inexplicable sunburn with welts upon returning home. This is similar to another case in Texas - the Cash Landrum incident, in which a witness approached a UFO and was burned as a result.
Now, the flying saucer sightings are absolutely fascinating to me. Although they are reported today (see the witness drawings below), there appears to have been a wave of them in Texas in the 50s (see video about those cases below Some of the details these Texas boys describe about the flying saucer they saw remind me of the details of a witness to a saucer in Germany around the same time! ), and so it is hard not to imagine these cases to be connected.
Let me know what you think in the comments, or on Twitter or Facebook.
"I first noticed the crazy microchip like pattern on the surface" - Austin, TX UFO Witness from 2005 Finally Reports Sighting
A really intriguing testimony, as well as drawings, of a flying saucer UFO over Austin has been submitted to MUFON (case 120716). The event occurred more than a decade ago, but as far as I know, this is the first time it is getting reported online.
I could not find any other reports from Austin in 2005 like this, but if you know more about this sighting, let me know.
creepy disc looked at me and dad
According to Instagram, Tik Tok, YouTube, the DeDe in the Morning show, and other various online sources, a strange ring of lights (you could even say, flying saucer) was spotted over a neighborhood in Dallas. A video showing the UFO was uploaded to multiple channels, sparking news headlines, online comments, and a debate - are aliens invading Texas, or did this witness just misidentify a light pole? In the video, you can hear the witness reacting to the UFO, and you can also watch a plane fly by it.
I can't find the original source video, so please let me know if have a link to that, or if you yourself were a witness to this!
In the meantime, check out the video and some analysis below, and you be the judge on whether or not this was an extraterrestrial visitation, or a man-made, boring like a street light:
I've covered sightings like this before, that were not as easy to debunk as street lights. 2014 was a very active year for these "flying saucers" in Houston, and although I'm sure some photos of street lights ended up in the mix, as far as I know, these sightings were never fully explained:
Video showing a bright ball of light hovering and vibrating over Austin, Texas has been uploaded to YouTube by the witness.
In the video, you can hear the witness' on-camera reaction, and it's priceless! The witness is clearly in awe of what they are looking at, describing the UFO as changing shapes from an orb into a disc. At one point, the witness tries to telepathically communicate with the UFO:
As my husband and I were driving past Round Rock, Texas on December 21, 2021 at precisely 6:38 pm we noticed a bright ORB light in the clear sky that was motionless from afar. The movement you see is from the car driving forward. Zoomed in it appears to be moving vibrating, helicopter like, but it remains in the same spot glowing to full on ORB orange, red fire to a quick dull craft figure. Thoughts anyone?
