An El Paso YouTuber witnessed strange lights one evening and fortunately captured them on video and uploaded the footage online. In the video, you can hear the witness share their own detailed analysis of the event; the video of the sighting actually begins at the 3:30 mark:
The lights shown in the video could be spotlights, however it is odd that they only appear on the clouds, and not in the sky, and it is also odd that there is another UFO - clearly not a spotlight - blinking and hovering nearby.
What are your theories on this sighting? Are these just spotlights showing up next to a drone, or something far stranger than that, as this El Paso resident suspects? Share your theories in the comments below or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
If you also live in the area and saw these lights, report your sighting, and help crack this case!
South of El Paso, a Texan driving home saw a bright orange object in the sky - except it was no star; it was moving fast and leaving a trail of exhaust behind. It then brightened up real fast and disappeared, with the lights on the witness' car mysteriously turning off at that time. He was able to turn them back on fortunately, but was so shaken by the experience, they quickly called a friend to let them know what happened. Read the testimony and listen to the voice mail (submitted to MUFON) here:
I was leaving my girlfriend's house in Socorro, TX at 2:30 a.m. on May 2, 2015, heading back to the main street from her subdivision, when I noticed a bright orange circle in the night sky. I was travelling westbound and the object was traveling towards me in a southeastern direction. The circle first appeared just to be a star or maybe a meteorite given the clear night sky, but it began to grow in brightness and then I noticed what appeared to be a conical exhaust coming out from the bottom of the object, which is unlike a plan that would have the exhaust visible behind it, not underneath it. I had lit a cigarette and had my windows rolled down but I heard no noise to accompany what I was witnessing in the sky.
Here's the voice mail the witness left for a friend, depicting the event, if you prefer audio:
There have been lots of descriptions of lights in the sky taking off into the stratosphere (something planes, drones, stars, and meteors don't do); could this be related?
If you have seen a UFO in Texas recently, report your sighting!
A routine star gazer with a military background saw something by the Big Dipper and Polaris that they couldn't quite explain. Essentially, a part of the sky gradually illuminated into an explosion of light. Whether it was a meteor or something stranger, it sounds like it was a pretty stunning sight, as the witness reported to MUFON that it was "spectacular and amazing" and probably not something they'll ever see again.
There was a "meteor" report for El Paso on the same night of a dark green fireball that fizzled out. Could this have been the same event?
Here's the full MUFON report:
I was sitting in my fathers' backyard looking N/NW at the Big Dipper and Polaris, when all of a sudden there was a bright flareup approx 10 deg W and 5 deg above Polaris (North Star). It lasted approx 2-3 seconds but appeared to last much longer. First it started as a small ignition, as lighting a flare, and ended with a luminous flare up before it dissipated. Like a tiny sun. This was not a flare as the position was fixed, no movement at all except for the burst of light. Having been in the military, I'm very familiar how flares react in the sky. It's been windy here and dusty to boot so the light/illumination was obscured by dust particles I imagine and therefore was yellowish to orange in color. This was not a moving object. I would classify this as an astronomical event and was very excited to witness whatever this event was, possibly a novae. As a stargazer since my teens, I've witnessed many strange lights in the sky but nothing ever like this. I don't believe I will ever witness anything like this in my life again and have searched the internet to find an appropriate institution to report this to but could only find MUFON to be the most reliable source to do so. I am hoping that you can forward this to the proper entity as I feel there has to be some recording of this event to confirm what I witnessed. Was truly spectacular and amazing. There are no hills/mountains in the distance so it could not be far off headlights at least not for the size of the illumination that I witnessed. After the illumination ended, I waited another 30 minutes staring at the spot where it ignited to see if it would repeat and nothing. I'm very fortunate to have witnessed this I believe. Thank you for this site and an opportunity to log my observation.
