Texas UFO Sightings has gotten an influx of reports that seem awfully similar to Chinese lanterns, which is not uncommon during the summer months. However, this particular sighting happened on a Thursday night (which is not a common day of week to see Chinese lanterns) and if you really dig into the description, this seems like something else entirely:
Not sure if it was ufo or military. 10 objects hung in the sky and then an entire line of them that stretched for miles showed up. I just wanted to know if they were military activities or ufo. Not many military aircraft look like missiles hanging in the sky. they were there for quite some time. A friend pulled up to see what was going on and they saw them, too. Blew it off as air planes. One glance away to scold him and when I looked back they were all gone. ALL of them.
