If you've been following the latest UFO sightings in the Lonestar State, the South Texas UFO flap is no news to you. And the excellent UFO Disclosure Countdown Clock blog has summed up the timeline and added some pretty good commentary. It's definitely worth a read. To recap, in July, security cameras caught a shot of a UFO over an Cotulla, TX Ford oil field - what's crazy is the camera was set up because oil was being stolen! While this event was a bit old, weird lights have been witnessed by locals in the same area frequently and recently. So, although MUFON debunked the photo - no surprise there - South Texas news outlets weren't so quick to jump on that bandwagon.
Could this sighting be related to the recent UFO flap in South Texas that seems to be tied to oil rigs?
The full MUFON report is pasted below:
I work nights in a remote area with very little light. I first observed the lights while sitting in my work truck around 2100 hrs, they were 800-1000 meters SE of my location at about 50-100 feet off the ground. I immediately got out to get a better view, the lights were only visible for approximately 5-10 seconds. Not enough time to take a cell phone video. They were organized in a horizontal line traveling slowly to the west. I am not sure if the lights were part of a larger object or separate from one another. They emitted a very bright orange light and faded in and out sequentially, the rear light would fade out and then reappear in front. Possibly indicating a rotating object? I can only speculate. If it was an aircraft it was moving to slow to achieve aerodynamic lift and I could not hear any noise. After the lights were gone I continued scanning the sky to see if they would reappear somewhere else. After a few minutes I spotted two orange lights hovering near a brightly lit drilling rig 5-10 miles to the west. These two moved independently of each other moving slowly in opposite directions. They were visible for about 15 seconds and were also somewhat dimmer. A few more minutes passed and I observed a single orange light hovering above the rig for around 10 seconds. Finally after 20 minutes of continued observation I saw a dim orange light at what seemed to be a far distance(20+miles)climbing in elevation of a few thousand feet at 20-30��� from my viewpoint before it faded out. The lights seemed to be followed by two aircraft but I can't be certain. The planes appeared to be on a SW intercept course with one at low elevation and the other high. There is an airforce base nearby and their course came from that direction. The planes made a about a 50 mile loop and returned in the direction they came. Not sure if their presence was related. I have seen similar lights before so I was sure that these were the same lights. I was pretty freaked out with the hair on my next standing up, it's not something I can explain. Could be natural, man made, or of a higher intelligence. A truck driver asked if I "had seen any UFO's" about an hour earlier. I wonder if he saw the same thing.
