Over the past few nights, Texas UFO Sightings and MUFON received three reports of bright fireballs in the sky that behaved too strangely to be deemed a meteor. Could these sightings be related? The sighting at Lake Gilmer may have been of a triangular craft however, whereas the sightings in Katy and Cypress don't mention such a shape.
There was a fantastic meteor reported over the Northeast United States, so perhaps Texas got a meteor or two, too. Andrew K of Pennsylvania described it as "much brighter and more round" than a typical shooting star on the AMSMeteors.org website.

April 8th in Katy:
Yellow to orange light that looked like a fireball. Seen flying across the sky over our house at appx 2100 hours. It was completely silent, no other aircraft in sight. About two minutes after it passed two airplanes flew by. The two airplanes were clearly distinguishable. It was moving too fast to be a helicopter.
April 9th in Cypress:
Bright light in sky, then looked like a spaceship with red light and and either green or yellow. Was remaining still took off straight up and then turned and flew over my home, towards neighbors and disappeared.behind homes and trees.seem to start descending. Not sure what I saw but was not a plane.
As well as the MUFON report from April 10th at Lake Gilmer:
Me and my fianc were fishing on lake gilmer in an evening tournament. I felt an odd sensation that made me look up. We are in a flyway from the Dallas area airports and there were several airplanes in the area. As I scanned the sky's I saw a starlike object that looked somewhat triangular in shape that was traveling at a high rate of speed with no flashing light. I told my fianc to take a look due to the speed. At that time we were both looking at it and it disappeared. We both got chills and started scanning the sky's when we saw another object just like the first. It flashed randomly then disappeared. About 1 second later it flashed very bright. We never saw it after that. We watched the sky's for 30 minutes and saw shooting stars and airplanes. These triangular object were not anything like airplanes in the area. They were as high or higher than the airplanes but 3 times faster.

Well, the latest report of "booms" and "trumpet" noises is coming out of East Texas, and those noises come along with all kinds of strange, flashing lights of all colors and varieties.

We live in East Texas, close to a small town called Gilmer. Starting late 2011 we started seeing a flashing light in the sky. It comes from all around you in the sky. It is diffuse, you can’t see it straight on. It seems to come from your peripheral vision. Sort of like a flash blub going off behind you. You do not see where it comes from. When they first started they were faint and at first we wondered if we were really seeing them. Then they stopped for a while. When they restarted they were a bit stronger and have become stronger over the course of the last several months.
People have been hearing weird booms and trumpeting sounds throughout the world, this is not a new phenomenon (I've reported on it many times) and it's not just happening in Texas:
It seems to me other folks should be hearing this stuff. If you're one of those lucky(?) folks, report it!
