9/19/22 6:31 PM: So as of right now, I think we can put this sighting to bed. I was putting together a YouTube wrap up of everything I had found out, including my follow up with the journalist who wrote the California news story, and my increasingly confusing confusion that some, but maybe not all?, of this event had been hoaxed. I had even contacted the Fox 7 reporters to tell them about my suspicions!
Well, it turns out, all of it was! One of the eyewitnesses to the originally-reported mass sighting in Austin has now come forward and claimed to be an actress, vindicating skeptics like Mick West who immediately suspected the videos to be fake, despite all the eyewitness testimony pouring in.
Check out the confession video and let me know what you think of this in the comments:
9/5/22 2:41 AM Update: This story is still developing. I am learning there was a similar, and similarly suspect sighting, in California a few nights before. It looks like one of the videos from California had been posted on this page --- I've since removed it, so we can focus on the Texas sighting and not contribute to any confusion. I am continuing to look at all angles of this event, from hoax (more and more evidence that this is the case) to mass sighting, and will be posting more soon!
9/3/22 2:41 PM Update: More and more videos are rolling in of the mysterious green lights hovering, and then zooming away, over - what we can now call the Round Rock, Texas/Central Texas area - and the more and more videos I see, the more and more I'm coming back around to the conclusion that these were... drones. But amazingly fast, high-tech ones at that. But who was controlling them? Let me know your theories on this and all the latest breaking UFO news below in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter.
In the meantime, check out another witness video, shared by Michael Daniels, who was near Spicewood, Texas at the time (less than an hour from Round Rock):
I thought this footage was very impressive, especially considering these are just privately owned drones, and not secret military ones!
This definitely poses a problem for ufology. As drones become more and more advanced, it will be harder and harder to tell the difference between "ours" and "their" tech...
Not to mention, even real videos of UFOs could be easily "covered up" as drones. Even I have a difficult time believing this video to be drones, as they zoom off so incredibly fast. Theories on Twitter initially suggested the lights were just coming from laser pointers.
Let me know what you think of this video, and other stories like it, below in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter.
Did you also see these drones? Do you have any more to add to the story? Report it!
