UFOs wanted to spend Thanksgiving in Texas. We can't blame them, we cook a mean turkey.
All over Texas, people watched strange orange balls of light glide over their heads. Another recent phenomena has been triangle crafts and orbs that create triangles, most famously in Austin, and many of these sightings have had a lot in common with that "fad," too. Each testimony had unique qualities, but there was definitely was something going on in the Texas sky last week, and many were lucky enough to see it.
Well, the reports keep rolling in. And the latest is quite a doozy. A MUFON report filed in League City includes spectacular footage of a triangle craft with three blinking orange lights, moving about in the sky. Oddly enough, two other orange orbs appear alongside it and drift around. Watch a video that was captured, and read quotes from the witnesses:
What is this, brother?
I don't know about alien space ships, but those are definitely not Chinese lanterns. Don't even try to go there, skeptics. That's a triangle!
Here's a similar sighting in Robstown, kindly submitted to TUS by reader Mario Arredondo:
my wife was outside smoking about 8:00 pm.after about a minute of her going out to smoke she runs inside saying theirs some strange orange lights outside.the apts we live in face south so when i ran out side their was 4 orange lights in the sky tawords corpus Christi area .after those disappeared 5 more came up and aventually disappeared.they were orange lights i had never seen anything like them before.i thought we were the only ones to have seen them.i even posted it up on facebook and no one had seen anything.so when i came on here and saw the pictures i showed my wife and those were the exact lights we saw.
And here's another generous submission from a resident in Lometa, TX:
My 13 year old daughter and I were walking from our deer stand at approx 6 pm when we saw 3 hovering bright white lights in the southern sky. I did not appear to be very far away. The 3 lights were all close together and side by side until it appeared to turn to the east. At that point the 3 lights were in a triangle shape. There was absolutely no sound coming from this object and it was a VERY clear and quiet night. This is the 3rd time I have seen these lights and my first time to report it. I am a director of a criminal justice agency so I am a credible witness to this sighting. I'm not guessing what it was but I can say it was not an airplane or helicopter. No sound!
And finally, here's another MUFON report out of League City:
I was in my nephews back yard on thanksgiving night. I was starting to walk under the gazebo when I noticed something flying overhead and thought to myself that it did not look like plane lights so I went to the other side of the gazebo to take another look. What I saw was a pulsating white light with green blue and red streams of light pulsating from the object. I called my nephew over to look and he thought the same way as I did we could not figure out what it was. Then it seemed like seconds later two or thee more appear out of the southeast moving to the northwest. Then at least 10 more appeared all looked exactly the same. We counted 15 in all and watched them for what seemed like a while but probably was less than it seemed. My nephew video taped the whole thing on his phone.
Did you see the Thanksgiving lights? Report a UFO! Know what Texans saw? Please comment!
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, many Texans spotted a gang of UFOs - specifically, solid orange balls of light! - silently flying together through the sky, faster than nearby aircraft. One witness even saw jets following behind. On occasion, people have seen single objects, vs a group.
This is all off the heels of recent sightings of strange star-liked, and even fiery objects spinning in the sky, which conspiracy theorists have linked to the consistently surprising Comet Ison, and a phenomenon known as magentars.
Next up we have photo and testimony from a Corpus Christi witness, and another generous reader of TUS:
And who could forget about the photo I recently blogged about from Galveston on the 29th, featuring a single orange orb flying through the sky? (Also graciously submitted to TUS by a reader.)
A few days before that, in Katy, someone spotted another group of UFOs, and although they weren't fortunate enough to get a photo of the event, they did kindly submit a description of what they saw to TUS:
Solid Red/Orange lights, one after another moving from the horizon in the Northeast and gaining altitude while travelling west. There were 10-15 in all, but they were always staggered, and following the same path. They all would disappear about 45deg azimuth in the Northwest sky. Absolutely no blinking or typical colors for aircraft. Even with binoculars, there was only a solid orange/red light source. They were going faster than the regular air traffic in that area (and in the opposite direction from the IAH landing pattern tonight.) No sound whatsoever. Could not judge distance, as it was just a light, with no features, but I would guess anywhere from 20-50 miles north of me, so I am certain that others had to have seen the same thing.
It wasn't just TUS that got these reports!
MUFON got a few, too.
Here's one out of Webster from the 29th:
Bright reddish orange object traveling swiftly north-northeast in unison with two smaller white "lighted" object (no flickering or blinking) at 45 degree angle from each other (all three equally spaced) with absolutely no sounds at all.
I went outside to have a cigarette before bed, when I saw 5 or 6 very bright orange objects flying across the eastern sky, just below Jupiter and the Gemini constellation. They seemed almost fuzzy to look at, but very bright. 2 of the lights remained the same brightness, but the others would brighten then slowly dim out. They were following each other, for the most part, but the smaller ones seemed to stay close together, and they were the ones that dimmed out. I looked around in the sky and saw 3 jets behind these lights, at some distance, but headed in the same direction, towards the north. There were 2 more jets flying at high altitudes in opposite directions. The objects didnt appear to make any sound. After a few minutes had passed another bright orange light flew in the same direction and slowly faded away as the others, and I saw 2 more jets right after that - both headed north east.
What do you think these Texans witnessed? I'd say Chinese lanterns or flares, but the sightings occurred over several nights!
