"Small disc flying quietly with red dome on top" - 1960s Sighting of Flying Saucer Over New Braunfels Just Now Being Reported
A report of a dome-shaped object that flew close enough to the witness, that they thought they could touch it, has been submitted to MUFON (case 101965). Although the UFO sighting occurred all the way back in 1969, it is just now being reported. Could it be a misidentification, or perhaps even a hoax?

Should rectangle UFOs be studied just like flying saucers, triangles, and other more stereotypical extraterrestrial craft? Rectangle UFOs do appear to be increasing in Texas, so UFOJane discusses this phenomenon in the latest YouTube video:
TexasUFOs has received two reports of a rectangular UFO over Texas in two nearby cities on the same day. TexasUFOs already reported on the San Antonio case and now is reporting on a similar sighting in New Braunfels. Will writes:
This was the last day for early voting this year for the midterm election, Friday November 2nd. I left work from Seguin, TX at 4pm and I took a detour through McQueeney on my way to Grace Church off of 725 to vote before I headed home. There are trees dispersed all along 725, but at least half of the drive towards I-35 gives a clear view of the sky. It was probably around Lake Creek drive that I first noticed it. A big, low and slow moving grayish rectangular prism shaped object in the sky, up ahead in the distance moving from South to North. Probably about 4:15pm. It looked strange to me at first glance, but I figured I must have seen it wrong, as this must be a banner being pulled by an airplane, maybe letting people know it was the last day for early voting, and I just didn’t see the airplane. I kept looking, and the cars ahead must have seen it as well, because it seemed like something was causing a slowdown. I didn’t see any deer or an accident, only this object. The more I looked at it, the more large and distant it looked. It looked like I was seeing it through a haze, like when you see oil rigs out in the Gulf of Mexico. I never saw an airplane, and it really looked more 3 dimensional to me, so I never could definitively convince myself that it was a banner being pulled by an airplane. It also seemed too low in altitude. It was probably no more than 1000 feet off the ground, and within 5 miles from where I was, maybe closer. Sure at that distance I probably couldn’t read a banner, but I’m not even sure I would see any of it. The proportions just didn’t seem right. It was too bulky.
Compare these recent sightings to one from October in Mesquite:
Although the witness in this most recent report out of New Braunfels explained how they could have been looking up at a plane carrying a banner, they weren't convinced of that and also believed other people on the road were observing the UFO due to a traffic slowdown.

November 12th, 2018 Update: TexasUFOs received a comment from a Facebook fan that has helped crack the case! Apparently, on this evening, the US Army's Golden Knights parachute team dropped down into a Canyon High School football stadium. The jump is no longer listed on the Golden Knights website (likely because it is now over), but you can find the event information in a cached Google result (see below). You can compare the latest video to footage of the Golden Knights (also below). As always, though, if you think that this video still shows UFOs, leave your thoughts in the comments here or on YouTube, or join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
In the latest YouTube video from Jane Kyle, a recent UFO sighting video sent to the TexasUFOs Facebook page is discussed:

January 9th, 2017 Update: Upon further examination, and with help from the community (thanks @TheOutThere2016), these lights appear to be a reflection from the nearby streetlamp. If the witness had observed the lights with their own eyes, I would not be so tempted to debunk this sighting, but that was not the case. That said, if you saw these lights as well, report your sighting.
Interesting photos of green lights forming a triangle and appearing over New Braunfels has been submitted to MUFON (case 89420). Unfortunately the witness did not notice the UFOs until viewing photographs later, so these lights could be reflections. What do you think? As always, you be the judge:
Took picture of blue clouds. Later noticed UFO's in picture.
