A witness to a bright star-like object hovering for several minutes over the Katy area submitted photo and testimony to the site. When viewed through binoculars, the "star" in actually appeared as a "U-shaped fireball." What is also noteworthy is the witness was able to see this UFO from different parts of their neighborhood (or town, it isn't entirely clear), implying that it was rather big:
Was diving home and admiring the sunset behind a large cloud that was casting a blue shadow on the sky when I noticed a bright light lower in the horizon to the left of the sunset. It looked like an early star. So after. Got home I ran in and got my binoculars and was surprised to see a clearly defined u-shaped fire ball. It remained in the same spot in the sky for a full five minutes. Did not change shape. But then got smaller as if moving slowly away from me and out of my range of sight. I attempted to take a photo with my iPhone but it only shows up as a light speck. But the image in the binoculars was extremely defined.
This sighting reminds me of another July sighting from Texas, specifically a MUFON report detailing a strange color-changing light hovering over San Antonio:

A video showing a large bright light hovering simply in the sky over the Houston area was supposedly submitted to MUFON, however I have not been able to find the original report. Luckily, you can check out the video from the report on LatestUFOs:
Was this just a star, perhaps bright Saturn?
Or could this be satellite? If not, what could this mystery UFO be? Share your theories in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
If you have also seen this, or any UFO for that matter, report it.
A bright light was seen zipping into or behind a cloud, according to a recent MUFON report (case 79920). Check out the daytime photos and testimony below:
Traveling this morning on IH 10 E, at 7:50am saw this light heading into dark cloud. Did not look like airplane.
Could this be an especially fast jet or military plane? Or perhaps a meteor? Maybe an ET spacecraft crashing? What do you think?
A resident of Katy, Texas witnessed several mysterious lights in the night sky, along with a neighbor, and submitted photos and testimony to the site. The witness also experienced somewhat of a static shock, as their arm hairs were raised and they even heard a strange static-y sound or voice during the sighting. "Neighbor" submitted the following:
Before this sighting, the witness also took photographs showing what might be a UFO in a fiery sky at dusk:
I went to close my garage door, and something just came over me to step out of the garage. I noticed a huge beautiful cloud moving much faster than all the other clouds. Also, the cloud was a cooler temperature. Remember,i went to close my garage door so i didnt have my phone. Something about the way the clouds moved that caught my eye. I also noticed that my arm hairs were almost static shocked. I cant explain . The clouds are a big thing i have to tell you because..i give you my word they were alive like silk and the way they moved.. suddenly I give you my word when i saw lights coming out of the clouds. Beautiful, no noise, but im talking about 7 or 9 of them . My neighbor left he seemed very confused of what he saw. I couldnt move I heard something in my ears like a deep.voice but like static. It was saying something but i couldnt make it out . Almost sounded like a frequency of some sort..When i could gather my head i said guys dont leave yet.. i have to tell someone what i saw..it was amazingly beautiful, and it is something i will never forget. I managed to take two pictures because i panicked. I know what i saw and i know that i experienced.
While this Texan may have been seeing Chinese lanterns or flares, that certainly doesn't explain the other anomalies, like hearing a static sound. What do you think these UFOs were?
The "is it a chemtrail or contrail?" debate is always raging, as we have no shortage of jets and planes flying through our skies and leaving smoky white trails behind. Some new videos showing these streaks of smoke have been posted to YouTube form different parts of Texas. Some shots show a plane clearly drizzling something other than exhaust (but perhaps just thick vapor trails?) behind it. What do you think? Check out some photos and then the videos below:
Do you think these are contrails or chemtrails? Are these harmless vapor trails or something more concerning than that? Share your opinion in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter. As well, you can report your own chemtrail sighting.
