A paranormal group called Strange Town conducted a public investigation into the reported ghost sightings of the 19th Century Magnolia Hotel, located in Seguin, Texas. Specifically, the spirit of Texas Ranger James Campbell, and his cigar smoke, is sometimes seen roaming about his old cabin. In the video below, you can see a strange shadow inch into the Campbell Room, and then seemingly morph into a bright wavy mist or light:
Never before seen by STRANGE TOWN or the owners of the Magnolia Hotel!! A spinning white vortex forms in the middle of the smoke-room while being preceded by a black mist entering the smoke-room. A space occupied by the former Texas Ranger James Campbell, when this portion of the building served as a Ranger outpost. Boot steps are often heard on the wooden floor, and the smell of cigar smoke will appear in the air.
Although the video incited many skeptical comments online, which suggested that Strange Town had simply captured someone's modern-day cigarette or cigar smoke on camera, it's important to note that this video was taken during a supposed paranormal investigation, and so it is highly unlikely anyone would have been smoking nearby.
What do you think this video? Are we witnessing the ghost of James Campbell, or perhaps his cigar smoke? Or could our eyes be playing tricks on us? We could be looking at real, modern-day smoke, or just some lights reflecting through the windows, or something else far less mysterious than the paranormal.
Earlier in the week, TexasUFOs reported on a strange red glow that illuminated the ground in New Braunfels. Well, now a similar report from a nearby city has been sent to MUFON (case 78262). This time though just a single tree was lit up, with no known light source:
Yesterday is the second time we have walked outside and have seen a tree illuminated. We live in the country and there are no Street lights or houses nearby that would illuminate our area. It was a new moon, so the light was not coming from the moon. It was quiet and still, just a light illuminating a tree. I was scared the first time we saw it a few months ago, but now I am curious as to what it is.
Could there be an increase in drones or crafts surveying land? If you have any ideas, share your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter. And if you have seen any UFOs in Seguin that might explain this, report your sighting.
I was outside in the morning having a cup of coffee when i noticed a star to the East, which is not unusual. The star was bright and i looked away and when i looked back it was a long line up and down and i thought that's strange its just a weird cloud. Then it changed back to a circle and that's when things got really strange. The circle got bigger and then it flattened out the the disk shape i have in the pictures. I went and got my phone because i thought nobody is going to believe me. Especially my husband.
Very odd! Could this be a natural weather phenomenon that most people aren't aware of? Have you seen a UFO like this, or did you see THIS UFO, too? Share your encounter!
If you read TUS from time to time, you're not new to one of the latest UFO "flaps" (as UFO nerds like me like to call them). Mass sightings of triangle-shaped crafts have really picked up over the last few months. One of the more controversial sightings came out of Austin, when a set of 3 red lights hovered over a show at ACL. Some people are quick to debunk them as Chinese lanterns, while others are not sold on that theory one bit.
Regardless, there's no doubt at ALL that triangle or V-shaped crafts have been witnessed by Texans recently... video out of Seguin and Dallas (scroll down) show exactly that!
The latest sightings out of Arlington and Beaumont are also terribly intriguing (you can read the reports below). One witness, who saw a triangle craft at the same time as a friend in a different part of the city, was excited and scared by the experience - they almost didn't report on it for fear others would think they were crazy. Thankfully they did!
Here are some of the photos from recent sightings:
And here's video from an October 12th sighting in Houston, as well as its YouTube description:
Seldom do I get to see a flying craft with TRIANGULAR PATTERN of steady lights.
Read a recap of some of the more impressive sightings to get reported on recently. And check out some new reports below...
And here's a MUFON report out of Arlington from Oct 25th:
At night, when it was partly cloudy, I was outside with my sister feeding our dogs outside when I glanced up to the sky . Than, all of sudden, an object caught my sight. This object was a large dark outlined triangular shaped object that had 5 white lights that were located at the edge of the this object. This lights made a V-shape. This object was flying slightly above the clouds. I noticed it's triangular shape when it wasn't in cloud cover and noticed it's dark outline. The way the object flew was in a straight line, slightly faster than commercial airplanes. The object, as it flew straight, rotated from when I first sighted it till I lost its sight of about 20 - 30 degrees. I lost sight of the object after it went behind the tree line. At first, after viewing the object, I felt confused because I thought it was a plane but the object didn't make a sound as well as the way it didn't make a flight path the same as an airplane.
And Beaumont from Oct 21st:
I was getting off work about 10:40 pm. I always look around when I leave work because I work Dispatch at a stadium and it's dark , and I have to walk to my car. I looked up and saw a triangle shaped light in the clouds. At first I thought it was some type of light for an airplane. But as I continued to watch it , I could see that it wasn't that at all. The triangle shape was almost glowing. I watched it for about 5 minutes. I then called another coworker to come outside and see it. We watched it for about another minute. Neither of us could explain it. I then got in my car and headed home and called a friend on the way, to tell him of the incident. Before I could really get my story out, he started telling me exactly what I had seen. He told me he was putting out the trash and saw the same object in the sky. It was scary, but exciting in the same. I have never witnessed anything like this in my life. Almost to afraid to tell anyone, didn't want them to think I was crazy... Tried to video it , but the video is was much to dark.

The recent UFO sighting over ACL has spurred quit the conversation online! Many have been quick to debunk these ominous red lights, which formed a clear-cut triangle and quietly lurked over a Cure concert, as Chinese lanterns. A few people have chimed in to say they SAW a launch of Chinese lanterns that evening.
A few problems... the videos and photos don't show typical Chinese lanterns. I don't care if you happened to see someone also launching lanterns that evening, this is not what the videos or photos or eyewitness accounts depict.
Chinese lanterns or not, sightings of V and triangle-shaped crafts (from Austin to Seguin to Amarillo, and more) with red lights have skyrocketed for Texas over the past several weeks.
Just today, TUS received an exclusive report out of San Antonio of "3 sets of 3 glowing red orbs in the distant, the three orbs formed triangle." It was made by a former military member who's used to seeing all kinds of things in the sky... but he was downright baffled by this sight.
Here's one of the latest and greatest videos to come from the recent mass UFO sighting in Austin at ACL (pictured above)... what say you, Internet? Chinese lanterns?
"They came for the Cure
And here's another fresh account of what went down in Austin that night, kindly submitted to TUS by Lisa Farwell-Matthews:
We were enjoying The Cure concert at the Austin City Limits Music Festival when I looked up at the search lights pointed over the Lady Bird stage and saw three distinct orange lights in a triangular shape moving slowly over the crowd. I initially thought of flares, but these three lights did not drift or move out of their triangular configuration. Someone suggested Chinese lanterns, but again, these lights remained in a static triangular shape where lanterns would have drifted apart. My friend also saw them. I fumbled with my phone to photograph them and attempted to take a video. I understand now why UFO photos always look like they do. I was shaking and captured one grainy photo, but you can see the three lights in a triangle. We watched them for approximately 2 minutes as they moved slowly west before disappearing into the clouds. I have to say, if that really was a UFO, it was the greatest sighting ever during The Cure's "Hot, Hot, Hot!"
As well as more testimony, courtesy of YouTube comments:
I was there, and others reported seeing it move across the festival. Apparently there was another red object and a "scout"craft that was aboved and just took off. I initially thought of chinese lanterns but decided that was not the case.
So, what do you guys think? Do we have an invasion of Chinese lanterns that like to fly in triangle formation, or an invasion of unidentified flying triangles? As kooky as it sounds, the ladder's the best we can do right now!
Please let me know if you've seen this!
