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!

This UFO showed up a day after another pretty amazing sighting in Houston, where 12 UFOs formed a triangle in the sky. Could these events be related?
Here's the full MUFON report:
I had just set my telescope up in the back yard and was observing Jupiter. I started looking around for something else and observed this bright white object moving from SW to NE in a straight line and initially thought it was a satellite but it was far too bright to be a satellite. I started tracking it through my telescope. It was not an airplane of any sort because it was too far up and had no flashing lights or distinct shape except for being a big ball of light. I went inside and grabbed my roommate (who works at NASA and doesn't believe in the UFO phenomenon) and even he stated that it wasn't a satellite. It did not do anything extraordinary, just kind of floated across the sky until it hit the horizon. It was as bright as Jupiter, if not a little more. You couldn't have missed it if you were looking into the sky. I observed it for approximately 2 minutes before it went out of my sight. The time of the sighting was at about 8:30pm CST.
I've found loads of UFO reports all over the Houston area - from the Woodlands to League City - of some weird "orb" activity.
Although the American Meteor Society doesn't have much on this, it is possible there was a meteor shower that caused this increase in sightings. What are some other theories - do you have any? Let us know!
Recent Houston UFO recap:
And again, here's the only video we have of these supposed sightings. It's not great, but the commentary is interesting to listen to:
In 2012, the the coastal town of League City saw quite a few UFO sightings, mysteries still unsolved. Well, we've got a new mystery on our hands. Some friends watched an extremely large orange ball of light hover over a lake, silently move around all over the sky, and fading in and out (as these types of orbs tend to do). The witness claims that they're used to seeing unique things in the sky, due to the Coast Guard being so close by, but that this was far stranger. Luckily, they reported the strange sight into MUFON.
Was telling some friends goodbye, after an evening of boating. Noticed an unusual orange glowing ball hovering over Clear Lake. Watched this for about 3 minutes, making move changes, but no noise whatsoever. Approx. range was a mile and one half. After several direction changes it disappeared. About 30 minutes later, the same object appeared in the same area, but a little further East. We observed it for a couple of minutes.Then it disappeared, like before. This was 10 times bigger than any other aviation light, we have seen in the area. We are used to seeing Coast guard helicopter and various other airplanes at the same altitude. This was definitely strange and different.
Houston has been no stranger to UFO sightings over the past few nights. A bunch of strange orbs, of many varieties, have been spotted in the area. Could these encounters be related?? Has there been a lot of meteor activity, any ideas guys?
Texas has been real abuzz with UFO sightings of late. I recently caught wind that MUFON - a great UFO reporting database, but not the trustiest investigators - dubbed the recent Texas City lights as sky lanterns, while the Department of Homeland Security proclaimed hoax. The same explanation has been used for the most recent mass UFO sighting in San Antonio. However, the actual witness testimonies, duration, and ubiquitous of UFO sightings of late in Texas don't really fit that bill. Are sky lanterns our new weather balloons?
Here's a video of the Texas City lights:
Compare to sky lanterns:
And similar footage from a recent League City, TX sighting (which has also bled onto many other parts of Texas, and is not likely to be sky lanterns):
