A fast-moving craft with bright lights moving very low in the sky caught the attention of some neighborhood dogs near Interstate 20 in Weatherford, Texas, according to TexasUFOs reader "BB," who wrote:
I heard dogs barking rather unusual for after dark, my cat suddenly took off, i stepped outside and something caught my eye moving extremely fast, quietly. There were three lights, one center that gave off a different ‘glow’ and two identical brighter lights evenly spaced to either side and slightly lower than the center light. The object was too low and moving too fast to be an airplane. It was heading north west. Than the lights vanished.as in, flicked off.
Was this UFO so mysterious as to scare the local animals? Or do you think these events were unrelated?

June 11th, 2016 Update: Another witness in nearby Weatherford commented on the story to say they also have seen the same phenomenon, but with the naked eye!: "No telescope but you can see pretty easily. Very hard to make out. The Plano witness nails the description of what I see. You cannot make out a definite shape. One of them hovers around 8,000 ft. Moves side to side at times in darting motions.looks like very bright flickering star. Naked eye it puts on a show, try to capture on cell phone or my old 90s cam corder just shows as a white orb..if its a clear night (never seen when clouds are present) anytime after 9pm till 4am you will see them. If your ever near lake Weatherford look up after 9pm. I did read a similar sighting from Aledo (about 5 miles from here) few months ago but that's all I've found on the web until this Plano sighting popped up. The Plano sightings are dead on to what I'm seeing."
Multiple UFOs were witnessed through a telescope over a period of a few nights. To the naked eye, the UFOs just looked like bright stars, but through the telescope, they looked very different. Mike writes:
3 nights ago I first noticed the lack of movement in what appeared to be a yellow/orange luminescent object in the south/southwest sky. My first 2 references of the object were 4 hours apart and it was roughly in the same vicinity.Yesterday night I saw 2 possibly more of similar objects in the same area. Tonight I was able to get my telescope out and get a better look. Unfortunately, It was almost more difficult to decipher a shape/description with the magnification. Although, once I had the telescope sighted in perfectly on the object, I was able to see that it was constantly moving short distances but not visible by the naked eye. Once focused on one of the objects, my best description is a round object of white light with a ring around it of the same luminescence, almost resembling depictions of Saturn. With binoculars of 20x it looked very different, sphere shape dim light with moving strands of lights all directions around it.. With the telescope, when taking it out of focus either direction, it resembled a perfect horseshoe shape similar to a traditional magnet. I have seen these as early as 10:00PM and this morning I just lost sight of 3 of them at 4:30AM.. For a short time before that, I had 2 of them in my telescopes view in the same position. when panning in search of them I also noticed many more that appeared further away and less bright not visible with the naked eye. I will continue investigating each night that I see them. I have some horrible pics taken with galaxy note through the telescope lense, but not worth posting. that is very difficult to keep steady, therefore I will rig up something to hold the camera still to the telescope lens today for tonight.

A video has been posted to YouTube that shows a drone or craft hovering and then traveling upward. Could this just be a plane from a weird camera angle, or something more mysterious? As always, you be the judge:
Shot with a galaxy I''ll phone. Parker county, Texas June 7 2016
Very intense sound to the point to where my mind went white. sounded like a helicopter without the distinct "chop" sound. There was no wind coming off of it, and the sound completely consumed the entire atmosphere. made a Lobing sound. It was so loud that while we were camping, it scared up a bunch of Ferrell hogs into our camp and in the distance dogs began to bark as the sound dissipated. Got a video of the sound as it was dissipating. Never in my life have I experienced anything of this nature. If it is nature...
The witness described the sound as "lobing" --- which is defined as "the radiation pattern of a combination of two or more loudspeaker drivers at a certain frequency" on wikipedia. Here's what lobing sounds like, according to the following YouTube video - for reference:
Did you hear this too? If you live in Parker County, there's a decent chance you did! Report your sighting.

IDENTIFIED: Witness now confirms to Texas UFO Sightings that there is a road stop hidden in some brush that he likely caught on camera. He believes he still witnessed a real UFO - or orb - moving around, but when zooming in, he lost perspective and mistook the road stop for a UFO.
Help me out here guys - in the photos below, submitted by a witness the Texas UFO Sightings Facebook page and to MUFON, I just see some windows with trees on the other side... perhaps a reflection of a house from a window? However, the witness claims that this just looked like a glowing orb moving up and down and sideways in the nighttime sky, and that in fact they'd seen this orb before, but only now photographed it. When he zoomed in on the image, that's when the UFO turned out real weird-looking:
Went into backyard to let dog out, clear night..immediately saw a very bright light that was stationary. Observed for over ten minutes before goin to get my galaxy s3 camera phone.object would move side to side and up and down but not very far. smaller orbs would sometimes around it. I just moved to this house a month ago, I've tried taking video, pictures before but nothing would show up, which was strange cause this is a very bright object..when this picture was taken I could see nothing but black on camera screen..so I just started shooting in objects direction.I did not feel threatened or anxious.. the [second] picture is expanded, [first] is original picture (look at lower right corner)
Reflection? Hoax? ET spaceship? If you've seen anything like this in the Weatherford area recently, report your sighting.
