It is not uncommon for Chinese lanterns to cause a panic... a night sky full of twinkling lights that aren't stars is certainly a sight! Well, lately Texans have been seeing collections of twinkling lights in the sky, which seem to travel together intelligently, disappearing and reappearing at random. Their behavior is a little more peculiar than that of lanterns, which would explain the spike in reports.
Well, we've got another such report, which was graciously and anonymously submitted to Texas UFO Sightings:
Tonight about 9:30 pm we were out walking the dog on our same route on Frostwood Circle just east of I-45 in Dickinson, TX and to the northeast we saw 7 twinkling orange lights similar to the descriptions I have read. There were traveling in unison....some getting closer to each other. They were traveling NE to NW towards the city of Houston it appeared. One by one they started to disappear and gain altitude, but didn't appear to disappear into the clouds. Those ended. We continued walking a block to the east and at we saw two more brighter orange lights through the trees also gaining altitude, so it appears as if these were coming somewhere from the ground east of where we were standing. I saw these just south of the intersection of Frostwood Circle and Sunset Dr. in Dickinson. I haven't seen anything like this before. It was a quiet evening tonight and I heard no sound from them.
A really interesting account of a spooky smoky "mist" and a floating orange ball of light haunting a Texas home was sent to MUFON. As with many encounters of up-close-and-personal phenomenons, it's not the only one the witness has had. However, photo and video evidence is lacking.
What we do have is a very genuine and descriptive witness testimony that echoes many encounters I've read about over the years. Whether or not this experience was real, I do believe that to this witness, the experience was real, and he or she deserves to get in touch with others who may be going through the same thing. There is all kinds of evidence from around the world supporting ET visitation and abductions, so we must take these reports seriously.
Here you go:
This is only the most recent occurrence, though I have had other experiences that might interest you more. This recent visit began last night, in my apartment.
Did you see anything weird in the League City area recently? Texas City has been seeing a lot of UFO sightings over the past few days (I'm still investigating). If you have any information to share that could help solve this mystery or if you've experience something like this too, share!
Confirmed: Mass Sighting of Lights "Slinking" About Sky, Forming Triangle - See Video Out of League City
Something's up in the League City area.
We've got a SECOND report describing "slinky"-like lights hovering in the sky (read the first report here) and then gradually disappearing. In this account, the lights gathered from different parts of the sky and formed a clear triangle shape, before vanishing. J.J McQuade contacted Texas UFO Sightings with a detailed description and video of the event (the names of his fellow witnesses have been changed to protect their anonymity):
I was finishing up my 7-8pm tennis lesson with one of my students, Ron. His little brother was on the court watching the lesson. My 8pm lesson (Peter) was coming in to do his lesson. He was waiting, as my lesson with Imran was running a little over. One of our other tennis pro's (Fred) was doing a lesson with his student a few courts down from us. Fred shouted over to us to look up into the sky, that there was a "ufo". We looked up and saw what looked like a meteor or comet flying east to west across the sky, slowly. It looked like a "flaming marshmallow" with fire (blueish fire) coming out of the back of it, kind of like a rocket or something. Then it stopped and hovered! This is when I knew it wasn't a comet or meteor! Those don't stop and hover. Then as we were all watching, 2 other lights appeared and formed a triangle formation. Then the lights began flying in "slinky" patterns, or "figure S's". It was as if they were playing around up in the sky. This only seemed like a few hundred feet up, so it was very vivid. Could have been further, but it was close to where we were at. If I had to guess, it was directly above Nassau Bay, which is just off of Clear Lake in the SE Houston area. Then one of the lights slowly moved downward and to the east, and then vanished. The other 2 lights then vanished as well. Then a helicopter approached the area and began circling where the lights were at. Then several airplanes flew over the area, one of them flying directly over our tennis club. The helicopter looked military, but couldn't tell for sure. The planes I'm not sure either, but the one that flew over us was odd. It was totally quiet with NO NOISE. It did have a few lights, but looked different than a normal plane. It was either black, or it appeared to be black. You could barely see it, and it wasn't that far up.
"The feeling I had after the event was bewilderment" - Strange "Slinky Toy" Lights in League CIty, See Video
Very intriguing testimony of cylinder lights slinking about the sky and then disappearing was submitted to MUFON, along with a video. While the video is revealing, it's really the witness description that delivers:
The event took place Friday, November 7th, at approximately 8:15pm CST. My wife and I were watching tv in the living room. She decided to go into garage for a cigarette. The garage door is usually left open till about 9pm or so when we are home unless the weather is bad or its too cold. We have a table and chairs set up in there so throughout the evening we make occasional trips to the garage for a smoke or a coffee. Our home is in a subdivision about mid block so we have neighbors surrounding us. The garage faces north. My wife went into the garage sat down and once noticed unusual lights in the sky. She got up walked out into the driveway and observed the lights for several seconds. She then opened the door to the house and popped her head in and called out me to come quickly outside and have a look. I would say the entire time she went into the garage until she called for me was no longer than 30 seconds.

A few employees of NASA who also happen to be Texans were watching the ISS pass over when they witnessed a blue orb following it. It then darted away, disappeared, and showed up again near Mars. These star gazing experts were "in disbelief" and fortunately shared their encounter with Texas UFO Sightings, though - understandably - wished to remain anonymous:
On April 25, 2014 My family and I were outside to watch the ISS pass over. It was good pass, very bright and lasted a minute or so. The ISS passed from the NW to the SE and as it started to dim and go out of view, we all saw a Blue ORB following the ISS. It was there for a few moments and just darted across the sky and disappeared as if it were checking out the ISS. I worked at JSC and specifically on STS and ISS missions so I know what I am talking about. I asked my husband "Did you see that?" "What the Heck is that?" He replied that he did not know, he works at NASA-JSC as well. We were all in disbelief. Just as we were pondering what that was (not a reflection from the solar panels etc) another blue orb popped up by Mars and again just for maybe 10 seconds and it darted at a high rate of speed away from Mars and disappeared. I know the satellites etc, the stars and this was unlike anything we have every seen. Truly remarkable. Btw the ISS passed over about 9 pm that evening.
This orb may have been spotted all over the world. I will try to see if I can find other similar reports from the same time frame. A red orb was spotted dancing around the Blood Moon in April, but this seems like quite a different sight.
