November 13th, 2017: Many more reports have come into TexasUFOs since this initial article was posted. Some people online have suggested that these lights belong to nighttime parachuters. However, many witnesses aren't so sure, and so far I can't find any local nighttime shows. Stay tuned for much, much more on this real, unsolved mystery.
Amazing video showed a set of yellow, pale lights traveling in a triangle formation over Tomball, Texas (north of Houston), has been submitted to TexasUFOs by witness Alec P:
3 pale yellow/ orange lights, at first thought could be airplane or a shooting star, bright and small, seemed to float slightly over the house/ tree horizon, each moved independently of each other but moved in formations such as following each other or making triangles, the dots appeared to made entirely of light or fire and had a small tail when moving, would disappear and reappear or slowly blink in seemingly no particular rhythm or pattern, moved below horizon after moving within one area for a few moments
Triangle UFO sightings are a fairly common UFO phenomenon these days, with sightings happening in Texas and other parts of the world regularly. You can browse other recent triangle sightings in the map below:

While gazing up at the New Year's Eve fireworks, a Tomball resident noticed two bright red lights performing odd maneuvers, hovering and also appearing to move toward the witness at one point. Read the testimony and check out the photo sent to MUFON (case 81289):
Observed 2 red objects in sky with erratic movements
Could these lights have been high-powered drones, military crafts, or even ET ships? They definitely don't appear to be Chinese lanterns, planes, flares, or other more easy-to-explain phenomenons.
A YouTube video showing two distinct lights traveling, and occasionally hovering, has been posted:
This sighting was in TOMBALL Texas and as you can see the rings open in and out they also stay still and if they do move they move only around each other. This is similar to the sighting that was found in Australia in February. I call this UFO the "Red Ring UFO"
Could this simply be Chinese lanterns, as one person suggests in the comments on the YouTube video? Or something more mysterious? Share your thoughts in the comments or on the Facebook page.
And as always, if you've seen a UFO in Texas recently, report your sighting!
Spooky sounds. Triangles. Meteor crash. And what the heck is going on in Tomball? (All kinds of activities in the Houston area, especially this town, this month.)

We've got some beautiful footage of dozens of UFOs filling the night sky over Tomball, Texas. They look like fireflies, blinking off and off. However, they do look an awful lot like Chinese Lanterns, and that's what local Chris Bounds says in a YouTube comment. Despite the "debunking," Bounds - oddly enough - is a fan of UFOs, as he liked a video about Wikileaks and UFOs a year ago. Because of this connection to UFOs, I would like to know a little more about Mr. Bounds, just to make sure he's not part of some kooky disinfo scheme. I'm 99% sure that's not the case, though. : )
Are these Chinese lanterns or UFOs? Let me know what you think in the comments!
Here's the YouTube comment:
This was around 9:30 PM CST just out side of Tomball. They are Chinese lanterns lunched from a party off Ezekiel Rd. near Hufsmith Kohrville Rd. They were red with a flickering white light at the bottom. They moved kind of fast because of the bad wather we where having. They could be seen for miles. Calls came in from Tomball Parkway near the Santikos Silverado IMAX Movie theater. I was out there on patrol and saw them 1st lunched. I then found where they where coming from. - Chris Bounds
