A UFO sighting from more than a decade ago is just now being reported to MUFON by a "MUFON field investigator trainee." The witness wrote a thorough and detailed description of seeing a strange ball of light in over their home:
New Year's Day: Bright, Intense Red/Orange Light
The witness compares their sighting to another sighting that reportedly happened during the same time frame in Florida. I personally found numerous UFO reports on MUFON and NUFORC from December 31st, 2012, so I narrowed them down to Texas, and was left with only several. The most compelling of those was one out of Richmond, Texas (Houston area), in which the witness described seeing an "amber," "weird-looking light" that, upon closer inspection, appeared to be attached to a black triangle (case 45006):
The shape was triangle and it has a front light that was amber in color. The UFO did not make any sound.
Now, as for the country at large, as I mentioned, many people were seeing strange orange lights in 2012. However these could be attributed to Chinese lanterns, drones, or other man-made or even natural explanations. It's hard to know without further investigation. Here's an example of the types of reports that seem to have been fairly common in 2012 (case 45035 out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana). As always, you be the judge on whether or not you think this anomalous or easy to explain:
Bright Gold light that came from the South went against the wind and headed south.

An interesting report of UFOs seen over an apartment complex from back in 2012 has just been submitted to MUFON (case 121765). Although there were no photos or videos taken of the encounter, I think it's important to document cases from throughout the 2000s, not just recently!, and this one stood out to me due to the witness feeling "pressure" in their head during the sighting:
Very long story.
A really clear video showing a possible "UFO" over Kyle, Texas was submitted to Fox 7 Austin news. I was asked to take a look at the video and give my thoughts, and you check that out below! Personally, I think there is a strong likelihood this could be an advanced drone with a built-in camera light, for example the "lume cube". It is worth noting, however, that the witness insists that this was not a drone, due to it being completely silent, and also due to how it has behaved on other occasions:
A UFO sighting from several years go is just now surfacing online! According to a MUFON report (case 12118), a person in Canton, Texas saw an alarming sight - a plane accompanied by three elongated lights. The witness checked their phone to see what the plane was (presumably with a sky/plane tracking app), and they were informed it was a "B1 Bomber:"
I was outside in my back yard when I spotted a plane with 3 glowing objects above it kind of leading the way. This was observed until out of site. I also took a picture. I checked with my phone and it said that the plane was a B1 Bomber ???
Here's a photo of the Rockwell B-1 Lancer, which this witness may have been referring to:
If this was a military aircraft, then what on Earth... or should I say, in the cosmos... could have been escorting or leading it? Or is it possible these lights were coming out of the jet? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Unfortunately, I am not in touch with this witness, though I would love to learn more and track down the original source and photograph. If you have any more insight to share about this sighting, let me know!
Check out the video and let me know what you think it shows. Could this be a meteor? Or crashing alien spaceship? Or is there an even easier explanation, like a plane or something more mundane that looks exaggerated on the security camera? Let me know, as always, what you think in the comments below, or on Twitter or Facebook:
