10/11/21 Update: I have made a correction to this story since posting it. The correct date of the sighting is September 19th, 2021, not August as originally written (I presume this was just a typo on my part).
That said, this story also may not be over... people have been reporting an increasing number of "Tic Tac" UFOs in recent months. For example, according to a NUFORC report (case 164617), there was another "Tic Tac" UFO sighting over Dallas that occurred about a week prior to this one (on the 12th), in which the witness described seeing a "completely silent ... object ... "Tic Tac" like in shape... extremely high up in the sky." It had no wings and vanished within a "blink of an eye." Apparently the witness captured this UFO on camera, but unfortunately that video is not attached to the NUFORC report to view.
Original story (with correct date):
During a daytime flight, a passenger was gazing out the window when they noticed something strange... specifically, a metallic-looking "Tic Tac"-shaped object flying toward them. The witness snapped a few photos and submitted them, along with testimony (case 118274) to MUFON.
What do you think these photos show? An alien spaceship? Or is there a simpler explanation... like another commercial airliner? Check out the evidence below, and let me know what you think in the comments, or on social (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube):

Like a metal satellite - tic tac shaped?
"It had a humming sound and hovered around 150 ft off the ground" - UFO Witness from 1974 Comes Forward
TexasUFOs has received a really incredible account of a flying saucer over Texas in 1974. D R Wagner was 14 at the time when she saw a silver disc (the size of a football field!, and with colorful lights along the edge) hover over her, before silently and speedily taking off. What is especially intriguing is during the event, her brother's car - which was down the road - just so happened to die.
Check out D R Wagner's drawing of the craft and testimony below:
I encountered a UFO over my home when I was 14 in 1974 after my Dogs began to bark at the sky and I noticed the tree tops were bent over and the wind was up. So I stepped out on my front porch and as I looked up the only thing I could see was the underside of a Silver disk shaped object with multi colored lights(red,yellow,blue,green) pulsating around the under edge of the craft. It had a humming sound and hovered around 150 ft off the ground about the size of a football field. I didn’t see any hatches/doors or exhaust just smooth metal no markings and stayed in place for at least 10-15 min I felt very calm but curious, then as I stepped down off the porch for a closer look darted off in a flash with no sound. Wind died down and the sky was clear. Moments later my brother came home after having his on experience just up the road for our house. His car radio went all static and then his car died. Later that evening I noticed a spotlight searching the woods around my house show my Mom and see say it was a black helicopter and thought maybe they were looking for escaped prisoner or something.
Believe it or not, there was another teen who saw a strange disc-shaped object over Texas in the spring of 1974. In that case, the UFO was seen in Waco, Texas, less than 2 hours away from this sighting in the Dallas area.
To make matters more mysterious, the witness in Waco claimed to see "Men in Black" figures afterward:
Do you think these cases are related? What do you think of the "flying saucers"? Are aliens piloting them? If so, why did they seem to visit us so frequently in the past, but not as often today? (These days, I typically report on Triangles and Orbs versus the classic Flying Saucer.)

"The weather was cloudy, but the object was clearly observable for approximately 5 minutes." - Strange Lights Photographed Over West Texas
According to a recent MUFON report (case 117164), strange lights were seen over West Texas. The witness submitted photos and testimony. Check it out:
Night of march 15th to the morning of the 16th 2021. Observed unidentifiable triangular aircraft flying low with no sound due south approximately 10pm. Snapped 2 photos, unsure if related to event. Approximately 4am stationary disk shaped object seemingly materialized, no observed motion. Object was backlit with a red light aura which outlined the object, but gave no perceivable depth. I observed 6 tube shaped red light tunnels emitted from the underside of the object on the outer edges, which were evenly spaced. Snapped 4 photos. The weather was cloudy, but the object was clearly observable for approximately 5 minutes. Didn't think to take photos until it started to become obscured by cloud cover, but was able to get one photo that had more distinguishable features. Notified two coworkers of the object and to come observe with me, they were able to observe for a short while with me until the object seemed to dissipate. The light emitted by the object was noticeably unwavering, it appeared almost solid and the emitted beams appeared to just stop instead of coning out and dissipating like a spotlight. The photos taken of the object and red light were not taken through glass or any medium. On a side note the triangular aircraft has been spotted once more since the event in the exact fashion as before, due south, no sound, and extremely low flying. This craft was observed with one coworker from the previous event. Unlike the previous event the craft was lit up, but went completely dark about a mile before flying directly over my position, I observed a triangular shadow but no distinguishable features. I have also observed 3 separate formations of extremely low flying black unmarked helicopters in the months before and after this sighting. One formation of 3 helicopters due east, another formation of 2 due East several months later and one formation of 3 due northwest a month or so after the sighting. No photos taken, unsure of dates. This all took place about 12-15 miles east of Kermit,Tx.

Did an alien mothership glide over Austin, Texas recently, or was some human just putting on a fantastic light show? Check out the two videos uploaded to YouTube below, which purportedly show a flying saucer-like craft flying around Austin. In the second video, you can hear the eyewitnesses reacting to the strange lights, and they seem pretty amazed!
