On the night of April 30th, around 10 pm, many Texans witnessed all kinds of anomalies in the sky. In the Southwest corner of the state, people saw strange gold lights traveling and blinking on and off repeatedly. Meanwhile, in the Austin area, people saw a large dark, triangle-shaped craft. Finally, someone in Houston area also spotted some bright orange orbs and they were scared by them. Were these sightings related? Chinese lanterns possibly? A meteor shower? The Lyrid meteor shower should be long gone by now.
What strikes me about this string of UFO encounters is many of the witnesses were shaken, and that's not really common! And how could so many UFOs be in the sky at the exact same date and time, yet so spread out across a big state like Texas?
Here's a recap:
Did you see a UFO or set of UFOs on the night of April 30th? Do you live in Texas? Let me know!
And a few good quotes from the string of mass UFO sightings:

UPDATE: Many people saw something in the Texas skies on the night of April 30th around 10 pm. Read more.
A central Texas resident was terrified to see a very large, dark-colored, triangle-shaped craft with lights fly over her home. Could this have been a military jet or something a little more ominous? If you saw this intimidating UFO, please let me know!
But that's not all! An Austin resident saw the same thing and commented on the original, very intriguging
MUFON report, which you can read below. Comment is also below.
My husband and I had taken our dogs into the backyard before bringing them in for the night. We were sitting on the back porch discussing vacation plans and laughing at the dogs. We had been there for several minutes, and as we talked I was noticing the stars and asked about one that was flickering, I wondering if it was a satellite. Then I noticed a plane flying over from the north. That was when my eyes caught the dark triangle smoothly and slowly moving across the sky. From where I was sitting on the porch, the view to the sky is blocked by our privacy fence, and the power lines can be seen just above our fence line, they run along the road beyond an empty lot behind our home. I immediately jumped from my chair and ran forward, assuming it was some kind of car lights reflected on the power lines, hoping it was just reflected car lights. But then I could see even more clearly the large and very dark triangle shape with the pale lights at its edges. This thing seemed so massive, or low in the sky, or both! It was terrifying. It was high enough up and close enough to us that I could see it was triangular in shape- and I could make out pale, very dim lights larger on the side closer to me, and almost like I was just seeing a part of each of the lights on the further side. I was so shocked and could not believe I was really seeing this thing. I was yelling something about it (probably a string of bad words) and a vague area to my husband, trying to describe it or something. He didn't see it at all. It had happened so fast and it turned North and seemed to vanish. I am sweating, and very shaken up. I don't like this at all. That isn't strong enough language to describe how fearful I am about what I just saw. I really hope and pray that there is something on the news later about a secret flight of some new jet or something. Not good.
And here's the comment by a fellow witness in Austin, named "Bee":
I too saw this around the same time last night.. I live in Austin. It looked like it was disguised as a low cloud and illuminated slightly before a building blocked my view of it. It was incredible.. At least now I know to look out for these now.
I was in a car sitting shotgun while my father drove. We were headed up to Crockett from Austin to visit the my grandparents. I noticed the object and immediately said 'is that a UFO?!' It was a small metallic sphere. A little larger than a bb from a bb gun. It was silver/grey in color and kind of reflecting the sunlight. It was completely stationary and made no sound. I would guess that it was maybe a mile away, maybe 30 degrees from the horizon in the eastern sky. I observed it for about 30 seconds and then it went from being silver metallic in luster to a dark grey and not reflective at all. As we were driving some trees obscured my view for maybe three or four seconds. After we had passed the trees the object had vanished. I am curious if anyone else noticed this object. I recall that there were power lines between myself and the object. I think we had been driving for an hour or so but I cannot be sure which town we were passing through when I noticed the object.
