With the recent and amazing news stories about fighter jets causing sonic booms to rattle South Carolina, New Jersey and New York, it might be a good time to reach out to Texans again about what they're hearing in the sky these days.
A few years ago, people all over Texas reported hearing a haunting - and even irritating - humming and/or rumbling sound. Half a year later, strange sounds captivated Texans again, but this time the sounds were higher pitched - more of a trumpeting.
People have been reporting strange things they've heard in the sky ever since, though. Read the blog comments below, which detail both booming and humming sounds:
I live in temple and have been hearing it for a couple of years. I last for a couple of minutes and stops as quick as it starts. It has to be under ground. They say that there are underground tunnels all over the US, that use supersonic trains. There are even articles of nuclear powered tunnel diggers all rhe way back to the late 50'S. I have thought about it a lot, and cannot imagine what else it could be.
Also, it was just this past month when loud booms and even a light quake was reported in the Corpus Christi area. Was this caused by fighter jets as well?
There have been a few other YouTube videos posted, too, with strange siren-like sounds and deep vibrations. You can see these videos and the news report from Corpus below:

While you were looking down at your iPhone playing Angry Birds, here's what you missed in the Texas sky during the month of April 2014.
A boomerang (or V or triangle) shaped craft has been spotted all over the Lone Star State. Meanwhile, a few UFOs left power outages in their wake.
Going forward, Texas UFO Sightings will feature a weekly recap of all the latest Texas UFO sightings, including sightings not featured in a big fancy blog spot. However, the site is currently sitting on a ginormous backlog of reports and so we'll unload those onto you gradually with a group of monthly "catch up" posts.
Here's the first installment... (round-ups for March, February, and January coming soon):
4/18 Update: Other UFOs by the moon were also reported on this evening in the Dallas area.
A few Texans were up very late on the night of the 15th hoping to watch the Lunar Eclipse and they saw much more than the legendary Blood Moon... UFOs!
In Austin and Temple (both in Central Texas), a silent formation of white lights - V and boomerang shaped at times - attempted to steal the spotlight from the gorgeous eclipse.
Thomas R kindly submitted testimony from a sighting at East Stassney in Austin:
My Roomate and I were watching the blood moon and at about 2:40 am when a series of lights in a very large v shape formation appeared just north of us and moved quickly east before they vanished. The formation did not make any noise.
As well, Daniel R of Temple was also gracious enough to share a very detailed testimony of a similar encounter:
We set the alarm for 2am to go out and see the lunar eclipse. Walked out the front door at 2:05. About 2:10am my wife said, "what is that". Directly above me standing in the street we saw 4 objects go by, south to north , oblong shape oriented like you would see birds wings in flight. The relative size was about the width of my fingernails at arms length, moving fairly fast. "That is strange, why would birds be flying at night," I said. It was very dark since the moon was fully eclipsed with the typical red faint glow. My wife said, "Birds don't glow in the dark". I then realized we were seeing UFOs. I had my IPHONE out and had taken a picture of the moon which came out faintly, but these were faint enough not to be picked up. Tried several times. My wife though they had a slight boomerang shape. They went from overhead banking to the left west. The angle was at about 10 o'clock then. They reversed position backtracking back to the north also at 10 o'clock, then back west and disappeared. Although they were together, each moved independently, sometimes close together and other times spread out somewhat, not a rigid formation. The total view time was about 20 seconds. We were excited. Still standing there talking about it, they came back again, this time though further away, about 1/4 the diameter of my finger nails at arms length. This time I counted the seconds of appearance, 32 seconds. Again coming from the south, making a circle of 270 degrees at 10 o'clock, disappearing into the west again. Sometimes closely packed, weaving back and forth eventually into a line almost straight spaced by about 3 finger widths between each. We stayed in the street until 2:50am, but no more activity, so went in. I have never seen anything like this except on TV footage. Finished typing this at 4:05am.
Have you seen these UFOs recent? Report it!

Could this have been the trick of an eye, or perhaps an RC plane? Read the full witness report, kindly submitted to TUS by a reader and please report your UFO sighting if you happened to see this craft, as well!
My husband and I were leaving HEB grocery in Temple driving along Loop 363 on our way home. We were driving by Wildflower Country Club when we notice something Large with red, green, yellow and blue lights blinking in the sky over the loop. We were trying to figure what in the world it could be, as it was like nothing either one of us had ever seen. The craft seemed to just be following over the traffic and I opened our sunroof to try to get a better look as we drove directly beneath it. It was low enough to be noticed if you were looking, but high enough to make it difficult to see much other than the bright multi colored lights.
"I knew it was a once in a lifetime situation" - Video of Orb Hovering in Sky Near Round Rock, & Other Related Sightings
Thanksgiving ushered in a new wave of UFO sightings that I'm having trouble keeping on top of! Seriously, I have like 50 reports in the queue, and probably half have great photos and videos to go with them. Seriously!
One of the latest reports to hit MUFON details a sighting of an orange orb, noticed by a star gazer after they were viewing Venus through their telescope. The video doesn't really conclude anything because it could easily be debunked as a star or satellite or even solitary Chinese lantern. However, a friend of the witness spotted something similar the other day - on December 12th - and shared their photo. Are these objects the same thing?
Apparently, the town where these objects were caught on camera is full of other witnesses of similar orbs. Check out photos of the November 28th and December 12th orbs right here:
Here's a photo of ANOTHER December 12th orb (or craft), reported to have chased a driver on the road in Temple... it looks awfully similar to the photos above:
And here's video of the original orange orb that was spotted on the 28th:
At last, here's the full MUFON report of the Thanksgiving night sight:
On thanksgiving night (11-28-13) around 8 I was looking at Venus through my telescope in my yard, my house was directly behind me. I started viewing Venus when it was at the south-eastern sky and continued to view it till it got to the northeast sky. At that time, around 8:50 or 9:15 I got tired of looking at Venus and turned around, 180 degrees, and pointed my telescope to Jupiter when I noticed the orb. It was impossible for me not to notice it once I had turned around because it was hovering about 2 yards from my rooftop and about 5 yards from me physically. At first i thought it was a paper ballon or some sort of paper that caught on fire and the wind had lifted it up off the ground but after further inspection it looked like a stationary flame and I was immediately blown. I wanted to yell for my dad to come take a look but I knew it was a once in a life time situation so I pulled out my iPhone trying as best to resist the urge of excited. In fact I was so shocked that I thought I was taking Video but realized it was only on the camera so I snapped a picture and switched to video. Right after I snapped the picture the stationary flame turned into a perfect sphere and began moving towards the north. It moved slowly, as it moved towards the north it elevated to the tree-top hight and continued it's path towards the north. Meanwhile my dogs were going haywire-barking from the bottoms of their lungs. As I tried running to the top of my door steps I lost sight of the orb over the rest of the trees. I ran inside and began yelling excitingly, showing my family the picture and video, until there was an eerie atmosphere in the kitchen. No one Believed me so I just put it off and ha dinner with my family. Two weeks later, today (12-12-13), my neighbor snapped a photograph of a similar colored orb moving across his farm. I decided to post these photos online and a flood of people around my town began confessing to seeing a same color orb...each sighting occurred on a Thursday and all sighting in rural areas.
Did you see this orb or something like it in Texas recently? Please let TUS know!
