An extremely bright and large orb hovered high up in the night sky for several minutes near Fort Hood, according to a recent report submitted to MUFON (case 83602). The witness snapped a photo:
I was leaving work and about to get in my truck when I saw the object in the sky to the SW of my position. Object was bright and too big to be a star or planet. It was not the moon. Object seemed textured, almost like a mirror ball, and appeared about the diameter of a dime held at arms length in the sky. The object just hovered in the sky and did not move. I heard no sound other than that of traffic but I don't think the object was close to me. I had the impression it was very large but a good ways off. I watched approximately 10 minutes and then it was just gone. I never saw it move. It just wasn't there anymore.
Could this be a military craft, as the witness suggested, considering the close proximity to Fort Hood? Or could this be alien? It doesn't appear to be a typical plane, drone, satellite, or weather balloon, that's for sure! Share your theories about this UFO sighting in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! And, as always, if you've seen a UFO, report it!
We weren't going to say anything because we thought that maybe we were seeing something military, living in Killeen and all, but after reading the June 14th report of a craft sighted by a guard at Ft Hood, I think it's time to share.
What's going on in Harker Heights? Multiple witnesses, and a video, confirm that there have been some goofy lights in the sky... changing colors, red, green, blue, changing formations (even switching places), blinking on and off. They certainly don't belong to an aircraft or a satellite. What could these be?
They first showed up on February 28th, according to a MUFON report, and then they showed up again on March 1st (with video to prove it), and also on March 2nd, if we're to believe a comment on the original MUFON report.
The witness who captured the lights on video might be YouTuber Fernando Hernandez, however it's unclear if he's simply the uploader of the video or the witness (past videos are also of the "paranormal"/New Age variety). Regardless, it matches the MUFON reports almost exactly, so l'm not suspicious of it.
Read the original MUFON report, the follow-up comment, and watch the video of these weird Harker Heights lights below:
My daughter and I were traveling West on tx 190 through harker heights my daughter saw the red first. I looked up to see a bank of red lights, bar shaped, hovering over the roadway. I don't know how far up they were. Lights turned slowly and flew off to the west before disappearing. I scanned the sky to see if I could account for the unusual lights and saw another light bank on the other side of the highway. This one was a blue green. It was close enough that I could distinctly make out 4 individual square/rectangle shaped lights. I drove underneath it and had no way of checking behind me at that angle. My daughter said she didn't see it although at this point, the sun was coming up and obscuring her view. We see a lot of interesting lights in this area, but this is by far the most unusual. I did not see anything about it in the news, so I ask here.
This report prompted a comment by another Harker Heights resident, who saw the same thing on March 2nd:
Its March 2nd and they are out again tonight - over knights drive over wall greens. ive been watching them for an hour now. if they were a toy...wouldn't they run out of gas / battery? and the range is incredible - they are going to so high and so far - back and forth. one green - on blue that changes to red every so often.
Then a video hit the web of the same lights (it seems) in Harker Heights, on March 1st:
Here's the YouTube description:
"my brother caught these on 3/1/03 early in the morning what r they"
