January 11th, 2019 Update: Many more reports of these lights have come rolling in, but it turns out aliens aren't visiting, after all. According to local news, the National Weather Service explained the lights as caused by "light refraction after a temperature inversion" earlier that evening. The flames by the nearby oil rigs were suggested as the culprit. Did you see these lights as well? Do you agree that these were just light reflections?
TexasUFOs received two very similar reports and photos of strange red lights over Texas. On the night of January 8th, 2019, UFOs were seen over the nearby Texas towns of Midland and Odessa. Check out the photos and testimonies submitted to TexasUFOs below:

Dark but interesting footage showing bright lights hovering and blinking on and off over Odessa, Texas has been uploaded to YouTube. The lights could be part of a circular craft of some kind, or could be something easy to explain. What do you think? As always, you be the judge!
Did you also see these lights? Report your sighting!

Video of a bright white light ascending up into the daytime sky in West Texas has been uploaded to YouTube:
Ufo sighting in Odessa, Texas. This happen on my way to work, and cannot explain how this flying object moves so fast!!!
What do you think this UFO is? It's certainly not a plane or star, and doesn't appear to be moving like a balloon. Could it be a high-tech drone, or something more mysterious? If you are in the Odessa area and also saw this, report your sighting!
Spooky sounds. Triangles. Meteor crash. And what the heck is going on in Tomball? (All kinds of activities in the Houston area, especially this town, this month.)

A Midland resident saw something strange during her morning cigarette - a fiery, tumbling orange orb hovering in the air, pulsating, and then disappearing. She grabbed her daughter for a look, but by then, the UFO was gone. She saw something similar a few nights later, but this sighting was captured on her cell phone camera, though she admits the footage is "crappy" and does not do it justice.
Here's the cell phone video:
The full MUFON report:
I went outside to smoke my morning cigarette, just after I woke my youngest daughter for school. It was around 6:20 or so. I was sitting on the porch facing an exterior wall of my bedroom. I turned to my right to look up in the sky, as I often do when having a smoke, and saw the craft hovering in the sky to the northeast. My first thought was that I was hallucinating, or possibly my eyes just hadn't adjusted to being awake yet. (I'm not a morning person) I've tried finding a picture similar to what I saw, but haven't been able to find one. On first glance, it looked like a small fire in the sky, below the thin, low, partial cloud cover. When I really looked at it, it appeared to be three (possibly 4-5) orangeish lights stacked on top of each other that were pulsating. They were way too large to be stars or commercial aircraft. It looked as though they shone through a haze. I ran inside and grabbed my cell phone to take a video, but it's not great. The object was far enough away that you can't really see the detail or shape that I saw with my naked eye. I took a few clips, sorry for the crappy footage, I didn't have time to run in and grab my tripod. Since this thing seemed to be hanging around, I dashed back inside to get my daughter to come look. As soon as we made it back outside, it was gone. Simply vanished into thin air. Needless to say, she thinks I'm nuts now (she's 11). The thing never moved while I was observing it, it just sat there pulsating light. This isn't the first one I've seen. The first was on a road trip from Midland to Lake LBJ in high school, a large orange orb that followed my car and then zig-zagged off into the sky. Then, I saw another last week on February 21st, during the day on my drive to work. I turned on to the street heading towards my office building, and saw a small silver disk glinting in the sunlight. My guess is it was a couple thousand feet up. It was moving very slowly to the northwest, then poof! It vanished into thin air. No video on this one, it happened too fast.
