According to a stratospheric balloon tracking Twitter account, there was actually a NASA scientific balloon that appeared over the Crosbyton, Texas area on October 15th. (Although this UFO was technically reported on the 14th.) As originally mentioned in the story, a weather balloon - especially if it was a giant NASA one - is a believable explanation for one of the UFOs, and it's understandable it would have been mistaken for a UFO:
However, I am not comfortable to identify UFO #2! It doesn't appear to be a bird, drone, or bug to me, and I've reviewed the footage multiple times. Watch the video below and let me know what you think of the explanation for UFO #1 and if you think UFO #2 can also be debunked!
Footage showing two UFOs over a town in North Texas has been uploaded to MUFON, along with witness testimony. Check out all the detail in UFOJane's latest YouTube video:
A sighting of a multiple star-like objects over Texas from back in 2009 has just now been submitted to MUFON (case 102393). Check out the witness drawing and testimony here:
Myself and two coworkers were starting a directional drilling job on a rig location in west Texas. My night hand came into the living quarters and asked if I would come outside and help identify what he and the directional drilling hand was currently seeing in the sky. The below mentioned is what we'd witnessed.
According to a drawing and written report sent to MUFON (case 10867), a mysterious and silent disc-shaped UFO appeared over a witness in East Texas. The witness believes that they may have been able to communicate with it:
I observed a large odd craft disc shaped with a large circle and a smaller circle with bright white lights,it was traveling sideways. No sound.
While it was the eyewitness reports of three respected university professors that brought credibility to the Lubbock Lights case of 1951, it was unversity freshman Carl Hart, Jr.'s eyewitness photograph that brought the US Air Force down to investigate.
Less than five years after a UFO famously crash-landed in Roswell, multiple residents of Lubbock, Texas witnessed an incredible fleet of solid, white orbs of light fly in a V shape overhead. It was Texas Tech professors Dr. Oberg, a chemical engineer, Dr. Ducker, a petroleum engineer, and Dr. Robinson, a geologist, who were the quickest to report the sighting. The three men were visiting with each other in of the men's backyards when they watched 20+ mysterious lights fly over them in a matter of seconds around 9 PM on August 25th, 1951.
If that wasn't amazing enough, a freshman at the university the professors taught at, Carl Holt, Jr., also witnessed the same phenomenon, but several days later, on August 30th. Fortunately, he was able to snap five photos of the event, which to this day, are some of the most famous UFO photos ever taken. The photos were first published in the the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, and then in a 1952 edition of Life magazine featuring Marilyn Monroe on the cover.
About a month after this wave of reports, Project Bluebook (AKA Project Sign), the official government organization for investigating UFOs at the time, got involved. Lieutenant Ed Ruppelt, a former Army Air Force pilot, led the Project Bluebook investigation and interviewed the witnesses directly. He later went on to write a book about the case.
The accounts and photographs of the Lubbock Lights were ultimately proven to be authentic, and the Lubbock Lights case remains open to this day.
However, early on in the investigation, many assumed that the awestruck witnesses of the Lubbock Lights had really just seen a flock of birds, specifically plovers, whose bellies were reflecting the street lights from down below. A plover, by the way, is a water bird that had indeed been seen in Lubbock that month. However, this theory was tested and put to rest eventually.
Lt. Ed Ruppelt ended up concluding that there was a natural, prosaic explanation for the lights. However, he unfortunately would not reveal it. Ruppelt met with a man who was able to explain the case via a serious of investigations he'd done. However, Ruppelt traded the man's anonymity for his silence:
From Roswell Books:
This frustrating and teasing tidbit has led many UFO researchers to wonder if the Lubbock Lights could be similar to other famous "UFO" cases that most people now believe to have a natural origin, like the Hessdalen Lights in Norway or the Marfa lights in Texas.
