January 18th, 2018 Update: Date for sighting updated from 2015 to 2019 (correction)
TexasUFOs has just received a report of a strange, solid blue light over Texas. Mike writes:
I witnessed a blue light traveling slowly at a substantial elevation, but low enough to know what I was looking at. The single medium to dark blue light was continuous, solid and not blinking. There were no other associated lights that could be seen. My eyes were affixed on the light as a dimly lit very shady/spooky helicopter flew over my head traveling at a direction from Bob Smith Road at Alexander in Baytown, toward the direction of Highlands. I did not hear nor see the helicopter until it was directly overhead at what seemed to be around 800 to 1000 foot elevation. The helicopter was very dark with very subtle lighting. I watched as the blue light disappeared before my eyes at just about the time I noticed the helicopter. The light seemed to be following the same path as the helicopter, only at a much higher elevation. If people would just simply look up, they would witness strange lights in the sky. Not the first I'd seen and won't be the last.
What I find is interesting is one of the other more interesting reports TexasUFOs covered of a blue light over Texas was in Houston, in 2015. And there are many more cases like this out there.
According to a recent MUFON report (case 97811), a solid bright light has been seen flying around in the daytime sky, even near planes. Check out the witness testimony and photos below, and let me know if you have also seen this UFO over El Paso:
1/7/2019 at 9:07 PM Update: Since updating this story, TexasUFOs has received two additional reports of these UFOs (or UFO) sighted on New Years Eve. A resident of nearby Anna, Texas, also saw the same lights. She shared on Twitter that her home faces the same intersection the witness in Melissa, Texas referred to. As well, earlier in the evening (around 11:45 PM), in Austin, Texas, a witness saw the same thing. They wrote to TexasUFOs about it:
I saw the same UFOs described in the link above!
1/7/2019 Update: Since posting this story, the witness has since clarified to TexasUFOs that they did not see a ring of lights, but instead saw a vaguer, and even more triangular formation of lights (as shown in the photos below). The homeowners explained that the lights were unusual, as there is no stadium or building in the location they were seen at! The witness further noted that they personally observed two of the three lights, however after discussing the sighting with others at the party, it was confirmed that there were three lights hovering.
According to a witness report sent to TexasUFOs, three circular lights were seen hovering in the night sky over Melissa, Texas by guests of a New Years Eve party happening in the vicinity. Although they looked similar to street lights, they were attached to no pole and also vanished mysteriously. Read Curtis H.'s testimony below, and as always, let me know what you think of this case in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram:
First of all, I have no photos and I know that will ruin this for a lot of people. Wish we had taken one but none of us thought it was a UFO at first. Visible between the rooftop of two homes in the distance, myself and two other people at a NYE party noticed 3 circular lights. The lights were extremely bright and white in color and not moving. The lights were similar in size and not in a line or noticeable pattern...just close together. Thus, I originally assumed it was a stadium light from a nearby school. One of the people looking at the lights asked the homeowner what was over in that direction...as soon as the homeowner began to walk towards us, all three Light orb vanished...there was not light pole or anything remaining in the sky to explain the sighting. The homeowner confirmed there was no stadium. I spent the night and just left their home...we drove all over the neighborhood and could find nothing that could have lit up the sky in that way. When we got in the car we noticed that the clock on the dash had changed to a completely wrong time. It is 930am and the clock was at 613pm.
Did you see this UFO as well? Did you happen to get photos or videos? Report your sighting!
A recent MUFON report (case 97332) included photos showing mysterious blue lights over Houston. According to https://fotoforensics.com, the basic witness description about the photos checks out. However, could these photos just show lens flares? As always, you be the judge:
My friend was driving us to see Christmas lights in River Oaks neighborhood in Houston. It was 8:53pm and I took pictures of this house because I liked the flag on the front lawn. I took pictures in rapid secession lasting no more than one minute. We didn't notice the blue/white lights until we looked at the pictures at home. I submitted all my photos so you can see the 3-4 lights moving up and down and sidweays, over the house. I submitted a map of the location of the lights.
