1/5/2021 update: When I first put together the report for this sighting, I wondered if the witness could be looking at a balloon, rather than a UFO. However, the photos weren't clear enough to be sure, and the witness was quite struck with what they saw and had concluded that they'd photographed something far stranger. Over time, though, no one else has come forward to confirm this sighting, and many online are suggesting that this is actually just a balloon. For now, I think we can close this case and identify it as a balloon. However, if you notice any other clues, or saw this UFO as well, let me know.
A shiny, unidentified object was seen and photographed during the daytime in Killeen, Texas, according to a recent MUFON report (case 101116). In one of the photos, a circular white orb also appears. Could it be related? As always, you be the judge:
Went to get the mail across street when I noticed something flickering in the sky. I’m used to seeing planes and helicopters continuously living by Fort Hood and this was none . I went to get my camera and took several pictures. I was surprised when I zoomed in and saw the details. I’m sending the most of the original size and some of the zoomed in pictures. I do have more pictures if you want them all.
Really amazing video showing bright fireballs slowly descending in the night sky and even swirling around has gone viral on TikTok. Although the video was captured a few years ago, I thought it was worth sharing with the community:
I have a theory about what this video shows! I actually covered this sighting back when it happened, as others had seen these strange lights, too! Turns out aliens were not invading New Braunfels. In actuality, the US Army's Golden Knights parachute team dropped down into a Canyon High School football stadium on that night, and so that is likely what this TikToker witnessed:
Not to mention, near New Braunfels, in San Marcos, there is a place called Night Jumps, where regular civilians can go nighttime skydiving - and so I've seen other videos like this in Central Texas that I think show just that.
Of course, I could be wrong! So, as always, let me know what you think in the comments below. And if you've seen UFOs like this before, and you have information to share, let me know!
September 28th, 2020 Update: I have followed up with the witness, and it appears that this was a... HOAX! The witness said they were taking a photo of a hubcap thrown in the air. I don't believe they were trying to gain money or attention for these photos, but that they were just playing a practical joke.
Photos of a black disc that resemble a top hat were posted to Facebook by Carolyn Miller, who claims to have seen it in Junction, Texas.
Anyone see something strange flying over Junction last night?
Original Facebook post:
Although you may be familiar with reports of "flying saucers," you may not know that people have also reported seeing UFOs that look like "top hats"! For example, I received a report from a witness who saw such a thing back in 1984:
I am looking for other witness reports and some more details, but in the meantime, report your sighting if you also saw this.
"My son-in-law suddenly pointed to the sky and said, 'What the heck is that?'" - UFOs Over Fort Worth Area
June 15th, 2020 Update: I followed up with the witness and asked if these UFOs could have been Chinese lanterns; I sent them a video of what lanterns looked like, as a reference. Here's what they had to say:
I talked your email over with my daughter and son-in-law, and we all agree it wasn't lanterns, for three reasons:
A possible sighting of UFOs over the Fort Worth area has been submitted to Texas UFO Sightings. Although no photos or videos were taking of the event, a detailed testimony was written. I am wondering if this witness may have seen Chinese lanterns, but I am not concluding that just yet, due to the apparently fast speed of these objects and other details in the report. It is possible that lanterns were launched celebration of Memorial Day. As always, check out this case, and let me know what you think!
I have never in my 68 years seen anything in the sky that wasn't explainable (sp), so hoping someone can explain this. My family and I were just sitting outside eating a late dinner. My son-in-law suddenly pointed to the sky and said, "What the heck is that?" At first, we thought it was an airplane. But the object didn't blink and the color remained a constant orange/yellow color...Very bright colors. It was approximately star-shaped and flew much faster than an airplane. And it was totally silent. It flew West and blinked out as We watched. We were discussing it and, approximately 5 -7 minutes later, another appeared. Same color and size, absolutely silent. Over the next 20 minutes, a total of five appeared within 5-7 of each other. The third was larger than the others, but still totally silent and appeared to be flying lower and closer. This time, it blinked out shortly after passing us overhead. Each time, the other objects flew West and each blinked out and disappeared in the distance. Did anyone else see these tonight? My son-in-law attempted to video on his phone, but we're having problems uploading...I will upload when we ascertain the problem.
A swarm of UFOs were seen over the US and many cities in Texas, mostly during the dates of April 15th through the 17th, but there seemed to be some sightings a bit before and after that. So far, many are concluding that these UFOs were simply Starlink satellites. Though I personally don't believe that every case I'm encountering can be easily explained away as that. As well, there were reports of the Starlink satellite launch being delayed and not even happening at all!
What do you think of this recent mass sighting? Are aliens visiting America? Or are satellites just getting bigger and brighter and scarier than ever?

April 17th in Horizon, Texas: The following witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings
Me and my husband went for a walk right now and witnessed about 10 orbs. One by one appear right under the huge bright star out there right now. They were in the same flight path. They could come in glow extremely bright and take off towards the west. We are in horizon. One would appear then charge up and go then another would come in and go ...one after another after another. It was so scary we rushed home. I tried to take a video but it would only show Venus or whatever huge star that is out there
April 16th in Garland, Texas: The following witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings by Gregg
While out at 10 ish PM 4/16/20 looking at the bright planet Venus that was out that night I observed 12 moving white bright objects. Each object appeared about 3 seconds a part above Venus and went from left to right then each fading out. Maybe three objects were on a path a little below the others.The third one that appeared flashed very bright. My brother texted me an hour later from Allan, Texas saying he saw them. From my brothers point of view he thinks he saw some colored lights on some. At first I thought they were maybe Elon Musk satellites but the one flashing very bright and the short appearance path make me think they were not Musk satellites. I hope someone else saw them and got pictures and video.
April ?? in Dallas, Texas: Witness testimony sent to Texas UFO Sightings by Crystal G
We were outside in the front yard Burning a fire. As we are talking our neighbor who is sitting looking North notices what appears to be a star moving than he sees another one. My husband and I look and WOW those were no stars. My husband goes and gets our oldest son to witness this as well. We are unsure how many were passing by but it was more than 20 that we noticed possibly more than that. As we try to investigate further it looked like they were coming out of a giant star in the sky! I mean they were coming out of nowhere it was crazy. You could see one come from the top and than the bottom and just keep going northeast. I turned my cell phone and recorded of course it's not the best video and has a lot of cussing, but you can see the UFOs moving across the sky. I was trying to look up and see where I can find out if anyone else saw anything.
