Earlier this month, a South Texas resident filmed an interesting scene and posted it to Instagram - two suns hanging out in a clear daytime sky. Or at least that's what it looked like.
As weird as this video is, it probably isn't showing two suns or Planet X or Niburu headed our way. It may instead be an example of a sun dog or light pillar, when light is reflected throughout the clouds due to different weather.
However, sun dogs should only appear in cold climates, and the high in Harlingen on this day was 90 degrees. So, this explanation may not hold up entirely.
What do you think of this video? Does it show a second sun over Texas, or is the weather just playing a trick on our eyes? Share your theories in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

With the recent and amazing news stories about fighter jets causing sonic booms to rattle South Carolina, New Jersey and New York, it might be a good time to reach out to Texans again about what they're hearing in the sky these days.
A few years ago, people all over Texas reported hearing a haunting - and even irritating - humming and/or rumbling sound. Half a year later, strange sounds captivated Texans again, but this time the sounds were higher pitched - more of a trumpeting.
People have been reporting strange things they've heard in the sky ever since, though. Read the blog comments below, which detail both booming and humming sounds:
I live in temple and have been hearing it for a couple of years. I last for a couple of minutes and stops as quick as it starts. It has to be under ground. They say that there are underground tunnels all over the US, that use supersonic trains. There are even articles of nuclear powered tunnel diggers all rhe way back to the late 50'S. I have thought about it a lot, and cannot imagine what else it could be.
Also, it was just this past month when loud booms and even a light quake was reported in the Corpus Christi area. Was this caused by fighter jets as well?
There have been a few other YouTube videos posted, too, with strange siren-like sounds and deep vibrations. You can see these videos and the news report from Corpus below:

When: June 10th, 2013
Where: Harlingen (South Texas)
What: Lit, disc-shaped object flying, disappears in mid air
Down in South Texas, a disc-shaped object with red lights was silently chugging along in the sky, and then disappeared. The person who saw the event unfold sent a report to Latest-UFO-Sightings.net, and explained how this was their first UFO sighting, but all of their friends have seen UFOs before:
Me and my mother and sister went out for some ice cream.we live near a big park and close by to downtown. When pulling up into the drive way I decided to look up because the sky was already and Orange-Pink-Yellow. I then saw an Disc-shape UFO. I know how an airplane looks and crafts, I know this what not an airplane. there was red lights on the bottom and some original lighting, and was moving rather quickly in the sky. There was also no sound. I told my mother and she stopped the car to look, she was freaked out. Then after about 30 seconds, It was gone! I looked everywhere and nowhere else it could be. That wasn't the first time me and every one I know and talk to has encountered a UFO sighting or believes it.
"a feeling of excitement with a bit of fear ... did not expect a distant star to just start moving" - South Texas
A Texan who regularly scans the sky for cool sights was lucky enough to spot a UFO - a star-like object hovering (unsuspiciously, like a star or planet or even satellite would do) and then making a sudden move, and eventually changing directions (following along a "J" path) and seemingly headed off toward Mexico. What's especially interesting is the witness of this event says he's seen similar UFOs before, and has even tried to report on them, but never had pictures until now.
The photos he submitted to MUFON are blurry and not terribly revealing, but they do show two objects in the sky.
Could this have been a helicopter? A satellite?
Here's the full MUFON report (photo below):
I had initially tried to contact the MUFON investigator that had contacted me before via email but got no response. Hello Mr. (name withheld). It has been awhile since our last communication but I did not see it necessary to contact you without some kind of photographic proof. Well, I finally got lucky and got a few pics of an object that I believe I had seen once before about a month and a half ago that ended up going on the same course. At that time my daughter had tried to film it with a digi cam but it had already sped out of range in a southern direction. This sighting was about 9:30 ish' p.m. I say "it" because I think it might be the same object, maybe that I saw and photographed this morning. Both objects just appeared to be balls of light. It was about 6:20 this morning of 4/7/2013 and I was coming out of my parents house headed over to mine. As usual, I scanned the sky but did not see anything moving or out of the ordinary. I was in between both houses in the front yard and began playing with my two dogs(the dogs were not effected by the object) for just a bit when I decided to go ahead and proceed inside my house when I took a glance to the West skyward. At first one of the bright stars which I thought it was, was not moving but then all of a sudden it started moving which startled me. I watched it for about two seconds and it's direction was headed eastward toward the gulf or my direction. I then ran into my house and grabbed my camera which is a kodak Z981. I have to tell you I did have a feeling of excitement with a bit of fear because I did not expect what I thought was a distant star or planet to just start moving. When I got back outside and was preparing the camera, the object then made a J movement and changed direction southward toward Mexico with an increase in speed. I did however manage to get one good pic that is steady. The first is shaky but the object is somewhat visible. The second is shaky with no object but the third is decent with the object being able to be seen in photo view zoomed in. It does have a shape that reminds me of a tadpole flying backwards wich shows it actually has more than one light. This will be the third object I have seen that has taken the same southerly course toward Mexico. The first being what my wife and I saw when I first submitted my report to MUFON back in September of 2011 and the one I saw about a month and a half ago. I will probably get some rest now since I have been awake all night but I wanted to send you this as soon as possible.
And here's the best photo of the lot, zoomed in. I do see two objects in the sky, but I'm not sure which one the witness is referring to:
