10/18/2014 Update: May not be light pole after all... another similar sighting in Fort Worth has occurred.
Texas UFO Sightings recently reported on a wave of "flying saucer" sightings in the Lone Star State. Folks have been photographing and videoing lots of circular objects with lights (and at least one of those videos has now been strangely removed from YouTube) and one of the latest of these appeared to have visited Big Tex at the Dallas State Fair:
A fan of the Texas UFO Sightings Facebook page, however, noticed a daytime photo of Big Tex featuring light poles:
Here are a few other views of the light poles from sources around the web:
I don't think we can be totally certain the UFO witness was really a light pole witness, but seems like that's pretty likely!
I'm not sure if the original eyewitness was mistaken or just used the conveniently placed light poles to drum up a good photo and story. Or if they really did get some great UFOs on film - great photo regardless!
Considering the other similar sightings of late, you can't 100% rule out anything - the placement of the light poles in the original image doesn't seem to match up with the placement in the daytime photos, but it really depends on how you look at it. Lots of angles!
Is this case debunked for you? Or do think there's more than meets the eye? Join the Facebook conversation!
