A group of UFOs were spotted and photographed in Grand Prairie, Texas, near Interstate 30 and TX-161. See the report graciously and anonymously submitted to Texas UFO Sightings:
Lights just appeared in the sky looked like four stationary lights in a line. Then one of the end lights disappeared and then reappeared. There were helicopters flying and just circling the the stationary lights
Did you see these lights as well? Report your sighting. One of the lights looks like it might be connected to a pole, but the other lights - and the witness description, of course - suggest otherwise.

When lunar eclipses, meteor showers and other anticipated space events occur, there are always a lot of UFO sightings that come along with them - more people are looking up, after all! But that doesn't make those UFO sightings any less important.
In the Austin area, people saw lights in a V formation on the night of the eclipse. In the Dallas area, they saw something else entirely: a fiery reddish orb bouncing around the moon for at least 30 minutes.
Two witnesses captured the event on camera and sent detailed reports to MUFON, while a third witness also sent testimony to MUFON. Although it's difficult to explain this sighting, it does appear it was concentrated in the Dallas area (only Irving and Celina have been buzzing about this so far), ruling out satellites, stars and other outer space phenomenon.
Check out the photos and testimony out of Irving:
April 15, 2014, around 1:00-1:15am, I went outside to watch the lunar eclipse and I was taking pictures and saw the red orb, or whatever it is, moving around the moon. When I first noticed it I thought it might be a plane from the airport near by.....but then I thought you dummy planes aren't round. The object moved around the moon and behind it and came out the other side. It was pretty interesting. I just kept taking pictures. I figured enough is enough and went to bed. Didn't think anything about it till I showed a friend the next day and he was amazed. So here it is.
As well as Celina:
I was visiting a friend in Celina for a week. My last night in town I heard about the eclipse earlier in the day, so went out in front of the house and aimed my camera at the moon. I noticed two bright shapes by the moon. At first I thought they were both stars so started taking pics and saw one begin to move. I just started snapping shots and continued. Seemed like a couple minutes. I watched the shape move in triangular motions and then directly above or below or in front or behind the moon. It then began to descend further south and then faded into the sky. Pic details show this went on for 35 minutes occurring from 1:11 am to 1:44. I took pics of the eclipse at 2:23 or so and there was only one other object in the sky and the moon was in the eclipse.
And another report out of Celina:
Outside smoking a cigarette waiting to see the blood moon when it just appeared a star like object bouncing then disappeared and reappeared bouncing disappearing and reappearing all over ascended and disappeared in min. Shocked and Amazed!
Were you checking out the Lunar Eclipse in Texas? Did you see any UFOs show up alongside the Blood Moon? Report your sighting! If you didn't get to see this yourself, perhaps you have theories on what this could have been? Feel free to share your insights in the comments section or on the Texas UFO Sightings Facebook page!

Someone spotted a bluish light hovering in the night sky, except then it started to dance around in the sky quite suspiciously. The witness kindly submitted their testimony to TUS, and speculates if this is the "new star everyone's talking about," which you can read more about here.
Here's the full report:
I seen a blueish and purplish light in the sky it was small and faint like a star but then started moving. This was last night, November 12, 2013 at 1:30 am.
When: On or about October 25th, 2013
Where: Irving (Dallas area)
What: Strange star-like object stationary in sky, but not star or planet
Hey guys, I stumbled upon a great YouTube video that features a glowing star or orb in the sky. By itself, it just looks like a sparkling star or planet or possibly a satellite. However, a plane seems to fly behind it at one point, and the witness who uploaded the video is somehow sure this is not Venus or some other star or planet. I am currently trying to get the full story, as there is not detailed description of the sighting.
Normally I'd hold off on reporting on this until getting further info, but sightings of a strange, out of place 'star' in the sky have been common of late - and not just in Texas.
But for now you can watch the video and judge for yourself:
Have you seen a new star in our sky? Please let me know!
Yesterday evening, a really gigantic asteroid got a little too close for comfort, if you ask me. Not to worry, NASA says, because it's too far away to harm us. However, on that same token they say they are ramping up efforts to detect threats like these in advance and prevent them from damaging the planet. Hey Obama, can we get NASA more funding!?
Meanwhile... on the very same evening Texans spotted some pretty spectacular meteors, so certainly the asteroid has - at the very least - flung some stuff our way... and are likely, if not certainly agitating our current wave of storms. Check out these riveting descriptions, reported into the wonderful resource AMSMeteors.org:
A bright streak, going up and to the right, that quickly faded, no smoke, just a very bright streak.. I would like to know if anyone else saw, recorded or reported this phenomenon, it seemed odd that it appeared to be going up, but I'm guessing it was an optical illusion due to its trajectory as it entered the atmosphere. - Adam H. in College Station
This video surfaced a few hours ago of what appears to be Asteroid 1998 QE2 in action:
Here are a few interesting quotes from the USA Today article:
Astronomers plan to study asteroid set to pass Earth to avert future catastrophes.
