Star gazers were in for quite the light show on the evening of Wednesday, April 7th, as Space X deployed another "Starlink train" group of satellites. Although people were expected to see it Wednesday night, I received reports from Texans seeing it on Thursday night, too, which leads me to many questions (scroll down to the bottom of the article for those):
Map of some "Starlink" UFO Sightings sent to TexasUFOSightings:
April 7th at 9:03 pm in Haltom City, Texas:
"We looked up after it was pointed out by someone in our group. There was 4 of us. It was gliding in the sky, had no sound. And was glimmering as it went by. It lasted for around 20 seconds and moved slowly over us. It looked 3D but we could only make out the bottom which is where the lights were located. It was long and skinny. It disappeared all of a sudden at the end. It looked like it faded away into nothing" - Anonymous
April 7th around 7:30 PM in Plano, Texas:
"There were many star like flying objects spotted yesterday while we were taking a walk in our area. They were properly aligned in a line . We almost felt like it was a rocket but spotted a rocket in the dark was very weird. We still cannot figure out what it was. They suddenly disappeared from our sight in a proper synchronization.." -Nichole
April 7th at 9:15 PM in Temple, Texas:
"My eleven year old daughter and I just saw a similar object in the night sky at about 9:15 in Temple, Texas. It was rectangular in shape, with the right end seen at a downward tilt. It seemed to glisten as the shape drifted from left to right across the sky. It was visible for about 15 seconds and then it slowly began to dissolve until it was no longer visible. It did not look like a solid shape, but rather a cluster of lights that seemed to shimmer as it moved across the sky. It reminded me of how birds fly together in formation."
April 8th around 9:05 PM in New Braunfels, Texas:
A friend of mine shared with me that her and her daughter "saw the train of lights when we got home from practice and ha NO idea what it was!! Not shooting stars, not a plane, trains don't fly, Harry Potter?, aliens??"
Alright, so case closed, right?
Well, not exactly.
As our own man-made craft become more advanced, from high-tech drones to "Starlink trains," it will become increasingly difficult to distinguish these things from UFO craft. For example, back in 1951, a very similar sight as the "Starlink" train was seen in Lubbock, Texas. Back then, Elon Musk and Space X could not be to blame, so it was easier to conclude "UFO." Now, however, we have so many man-made explanations to choose from.
What this means is UFOs have a much easier job at "blending in" than ever before. I would go so far as to say that if I were an alien wanting to visit Earth in my spaceship, I would choose to do it on a night when Space X was deploying satellites! That way I could have an easy cover if I got found out.
Another challenge that "Starlink" and other satellites/rockets gives us is - they are increasingly hard to track. There are so many deployments, so MUCH space junk up there, that you could blame almost any UFO sighting on something man-made. After all, we are just flooding our little corner of the solar system with lights! According to the Natural History Museum website, "While there are about 2,000 active satellites orbiting Earth at the moment, there are also 3,000 dead ones littering space."
So, in conclusion, if you see a UFO, and someone tells you saw "Starlink" or a "drone" or something else man-made, don't assume that to be the case!!! Even if it looks like a "Starlink" satellite or drone!!
Multiple round black objects were photographed in the daytime sky in New Braunfels. Could aliens be visiting Texas, or is this witness just misidentifying something simple - like trash debris - as UFOs? Check out the photos and testimony submitted to MUFON (case 113169) and let me know what you think:
Cluster of various size shapes and appearance, well over 50 object some glowing, some larger sizes
Really amazing video showing bright fireballs slowly descending in the night sky and even swirling around has gone viral on TikTok. Although the video was captured a few years ago, I thought it was worth sharing with the community:
I have a theory about what this video shows! I actually covered this sighting back when it happened, as others had seen these strange lights, too! Turns out aliens were not invading New Braunfels. In actuality, the US Army's Golden Knights parachute team dropped down into a Canyon High School football stadium on that night, and so that is likely what this TikToker witnessed:
Not to mention, near New Braunfels, in San Marcos, there is a place called Night Jumps, where regular civilians can go nighttime skydiving - and so I've seen other videos like this in Central Texas that I think show just that.
Of course, I could be wrong! So, as always, let me know what you think in the comments below. And if you've seen UFOs like this before, and you have information to share, let me know!
A pretty intriguing video showing a "glowing mist" "floating" over New Braunfels has been uploaded to YouTube. You can hear the witnesses wondering out loud about what they could be seeing - spotlights? birds? For now, I can only conclude "UFO":
(Caution --- video has foul language --- mute if you would prefer not to hear:)
"Spotted this “glowing mist”
What do you think this video shows? Is it proof that UFOs are real, and/or that aliens are visiting Texas? Or does it show something a little more "boring" than that... like some fog, or a spotlight? Let me know in the comments! Also, if you saw this UFO too, report your sighting.
Was the same thing seen in Austin?
What's interesting is a similar sighting - but from Austin, specifically on October 15th - was shared to the Reddit community /UFOs. The community there is supposing it was a search light or spot light:
What is going on? Are UFOs invading Texas? If not... why the increase in UFO activity - specifically, search and spot lights - in Central Texas?
