Texans checking out the Super Moon last night - at around 9 PM - were in for a whole lot more than they could have imagined!
Texas UFO Sightings, the American Meteor Society, Facebook, local news outlets, MUFON, you name it, received a slew of reports of a silent blue fireball that sped through the night sky and then split into two.
Many were stunned by its size, and even thought it was a plane about to crash land nearby. Others saw drones following it. Others say this was no fireball at all, but something else entirely due to its peculiar behavior. Some even compared it to a very recent sighting of an orb changing colors and zig zagging about the night sky in Dallas.
As usual, you be the judge! Fortunately a Dallas resident was able to get the meteor on camera and he uploaded it to YouTube. Just goes to show, how rare great videos and photos of UFOs (or meteors, or whatever) are when you don't anticipate seeing them. This is the only footage I can find so far:
A photo was also taken in Denton, and submitted to MUFON:
Check out some of the many, many UFO/meteor reports to hit the web and the Texas UFO Sightings inbox:
There was another sighting in Taylor tonight (7-12-14). A bluish light rising from the southeast and then travelling northwest. The light split into two before disappearing. This was witnessed by three law enforcement officials who wish to remain anonymous.
Do you have anything to add to this exciting story? Pictures, videos, more details? Please share! And of course, you're welcome to join the conversation on the Texas UFO Sightings Facebook page.

My mother my daughter and I saw this. It did not look like a meteor at all. It was flying horizontal as one large bright light until it split and became two. It then disappeared second one going first then the first. It was right over our heads. It was flying at high speed with no sound. This was over Dennis Texas around 9:10 pm as we were looking at th Super Moon.

Saw it also in Austin, TX. Started in the eastern sky moving towards NE and disappeared around due N.
7/13/2014 12:34:27 pm
Yes I saw it as well. 2 lights going at high speed then disappeared I was standing at S Congress and Ben White
7/14/2014 03:30:42 am
I saw it in Austin too! Exactly how too described it!
7/14/2014 05:20:04 am
I saw it in Austin too!! I was at the Def Leppard/KISS concert. It happened right after Pour Some Sugar Me. DF had walked off stage. I looked up and saw it. It was flying almost horizontal and then split and disappeared. There was a jet flying at the same time on the opposite side. You cold hear the jet but you couldn't hear those lights. Strangest thing I've ever seen

Saw it driving from New Braunfels towards Kyle shortly after 9pm. This was definitely bright. I am glad my husband and father in law were in the car to see it to. 1 bright light splitting off into two with the smaller portion burning out as it traveled ahead of the larger light.

Me and my wife, we was talking with one of the complex apartment neighborhood, and suddenly she said look on sky what's that, when try to push the button camera on my cell, those spots lughts gone, it them pass very fast one chase other is was incredible experience, I never saw that, we saw a asteroid, but this was a different, it was a very brighter and closer to clouds
7/13/2014 04:58:44 am
I saw this last night in canyon lake some time between 9-9:15pm. It seemed low to me but it's hard to judge altitude. It seemed to be on a path that would. Inject the moon to the setting sun and as it passed to the N-NE it pulled apart into 2 half as bright lights like a rubber and faded away in unison.
7/13/2014 09:43:57 am
We saw this on Canyon lake as well very bright when it started seemed to be moving very fast then change direction split in two and disappeared like nothing

Sometime around 9:10 my husband, kids and i where leaving my sisters house to go to a friends house and watch a fight. This thibg flew right over ny sisters house. It was low, very bright and it split in two and looked like it reunited before dissapearing. It made no boise and it didnt have a tail. Just an orb. So unreal. As we watched this we heard ny sisters neighbors (they had a lot of people over) yelling in amazement from their back yard, and some ran to the front yard to try and keep up with the object. Their reaction assured me, whatever we saw was not a meteor. I wanted to rationalize what i had just seen, but Im still baffled. Whatever it was, it was very cool and frightening, to me any way. I posted what i saw in a note on instagram, and the friends we where going to meet also saw the same thing flying over their house. They where in Humble,Tx..we where in Spring, Tx. Im definitely going to pay more attention to skies. Since seeing this Ive been googling and many people in my area and all across Texas reported seeing the exact same thing.

My husband and I were also visiting my sister on the south side of San Antonio. We were all outside just enjoying the night when all of a sudden we see this bright blue light going at full speed in a straight line then suddenly in an instant it splits in two. Now we see two bright lights going in separate direction. Just was so amazing to witness something so unusual. It was so silent no noise just going at full speed. Wish I could have seen more of it.

I was at the Lionel Ritchie concert at the Woodlands Pavillion in Spring, Texas. Thought I was in the movie Mars Attacks when I saw the lights going across the sky. I thought it was more like a green color. Anyway, so amazing to see, but a bit scary!
7/13/2014 05:31:05 am
Sometime around 9-930 exact same thing over arlington but i saw it going straight up started slow then it picked up speed split into 2 and disappeared
7/13/2014 06:01:25 am
I saw it in the day time at around 8 30 pm in Northwest Houston. it was a clear oval shaped bubble with a greenish blue light or orb towards the front half. Traveling at a faster speed than an airplane but completely silent towards the west. As it passed over is split into two separate lights before I lost sight of it. My neighbors saw it from behind as they drove into the neighborhood and claims that he saw two big flashes in the distance as it disappeared into the western skyline.

About 10:30 pm. I was looking at the sky when I saw a Blue/green light with a red "cherry" (red light) on top. It hovered a bit, moved a little to the north, then to the right, up a little, hovered some more until I also saw a white sparkle appear to the left of it. The sparkle disappeared then the blue/green light went down behind the tree line as if to,land

We were on the roof of our house on a hill just north of Ben White near South 1st and at ~10:15-20 saw a green light on something darting around over St. Ed's. It was pulsing, and went down, then back up, sideways and down again. I got a video of the last 15 seconds or so before it disappeared. This was different from the meteor that went across the sky earlier around 9 pm. We saw that, too. It went from east to north and split in two. We thought the green light may have been a drone.
7/15/2014 10:21:32 am
Cool, did you upload to youtube?
7/13/2014 06:38:36 am
My wife & I live in Montgomery Texas (north of Houston). Last night at approx 9:05pm we seen 2 Very Bright, Very Fast moving objects, not a falling star or meteor, travel across the sky much longer than a meteor or falling star!
7/13/2014 08:28:35 am
This was NO METEOR! Meteors do NOT hover and do NOT move in an upward direction AND most meteors do make noise. OBVIOUSLY this thing split apart and rejoined several times. Just want answers.
7/13/2014 09:17:33 am
My grandfather saw it about 9 or so in Huntington, Tx and some other family saw it the same time in Lufkin, Tx.
7/13/2014 02:11:38 pm
I feel better now that I know a lot of people saw this. I was in my yard in Nacogdoches around 9pm or so and saw 2 round white lights go over my house at an incredible speed. I went in and told my wife that I think I now believe in UFO's. Never seen anything like it.
7/13/2014 09:23:17 am
Coming home from Fiesta Texas,around 9:15pm right outside of New Braunfels,TX, my husband and I witnessed a ball of light. It was traveling straight across the sky east to west at a very fast speed. Too fast to be a jet plane,traveling in such a straight line to be a falling star or meter. Then suddenly it split onto two, then they disappeared. Very strange but interesting.
7/13/2014 11:39:56 am
My friend and I saw the so-called meteor Saturday night, around 9:15, traveling what appeared to be like about a 30 degree angle - towards the sky - then disappear.
7/13/2014 12:54:33 pm
July 12th, the electricity in Marble Falls went out over half of the town. My daughter, three grandsons and myself were walking to see if we were the only ones without electricity. It was around 9:10pm, I saw two greenish balls traveling from the east to the west horizontally, one was slightly behind the other. It was quiet, then the one in the back passed the other and they went off in separate directions. We weren't sure what it was, but it was frightening since there was an electrical blackout at the same time.
7/13/2014 01:48:33 pm
Naples, Tx. 8:38 p.m. low in sky, split into two seperate lights of white and mostly blue-ish. One a little ahead of the other. Fast , no sound and then disappears. Hard to just altitude but seemed like 300 feet. I had just looked at my watch so knew the exact time. Do the math to determine speed using times seen at other locations.
7/13/2014 02:30:06 pm
Me and my friends were walking to a party around 9:17 and we seen these 2 blue lights in Houston , TX .
7/13/2014 03:11:44 pm
KATY TEXAS OUTSIDE AROUND 9. WE WERE all IN POOL around 9pm when we saw bright light flying low and quiet but VERY FAST THEN IT SPLIT INTO AND DISSAPEARED. UFO???
7/13/2014 03:32:54 pm
I saw this over Conroe. I saw two bright white lights traveling one just behind the other. The leading light had about half the intensity or size of the other. It did Not appear to be a shooting star but was traveling much fast than a plane or jet
7/14/2014 12:30:42 am
I saw this thing too on saturday @ 9pm going south to north. I stay in south houston. I was with friends and one said look at that. What is that? I know it wasnt a plane. I said its probably a comet. It was light blue flying fast, horizontal, low, behind clouds. Then we lost it.visually and mentally. Idk what it was.
7/14/2014 01:17:41 am
Saw it Saturday night in Surfside, Tx. I was with a couple friends sitting outside on the deck of Pier 30. I thought it was a plane at first, then realized it wasn't a plane, it was traveling too fast. I caught everyone attention to check it out as it went by, it was flying pretty low, horizontal, bright light with blue around it. We had some friends showed up after we saw it and we told them about it, one saw it while she was walking her dog the other girl didn't see it, but saw comments of it on facebook.
7/14/2014 01:43:36 am
Definitely saw this too, in New Braunfels shortly after 9pm. Definitely too quiet (no noise) and too fast for a plane. Flying completely horizontal...then split into 2 and sped off.
7/14/2014 02:22:02 am
I saw it around 9:30 in humble Texas, a few of my friends thought it was some UFO type shit. Kinda relieved it's possible a meteor
7/14/2014 04:16:43 am
Me and my boys were looking at the supermoon at Lake Sam Rayburn by Jasper,Tx. when we saw what we thought was a shooting star but it got bigger,and bigger. It went right over us. This was not a shooting star!! It didnt make any noise and afterwards I heard planes flying overhead. Glad others saw it too.( Thought I was crazy for a second.)
7/14/2014 07:17:06 am
My sister and I saw it in Memorial Park, Houston, TX just around 9 p.m. or shortly after on Saturday night, July 12th. I saw it coming toward us very fast, yelled to my sister to look, and the two of us watched as it flew past silently and extremely fast. It then split into two and both disappeared a moment later. It was a fantastic and awesome sight. Today, July 14th, my sister and I wanted to learn if others also saw it and we found your site.
7/14/2014 04:28:17 pm
Tonight about 9:10 pm while driving to a place where I could view the huge moon on the horizon ...had just pulled over at a good place and suddenly 2 white lights ...were coming right at me...like a low flying plane.... opened my window as it was going right by on my left side.... no more than 50'on my left and very low...with NO sound whatsoever.... never saw a plane with a white light on the nose as well as the tail.......it looked like one was chasing the other...just like what I have heard on the radio......then just as it passed me out of the driver's window....they disappeared....one with a bit of a grey/black tail....for a second or two. Totally it lasted about 10 seconds....going very, very fast toward me from the moon. WOW! it was exciting!
7/14/2014 04:31:03 pm
This was seen in Waco, TX on July 12th about 9:10 PM
7/14/2014 04:32:14 pm
The last post was seen in Waco, TX on July 12th about 9:10 PM
7/14/2014 06:05:14 pm
I Was in Palacios,tx fishing on a pear with about 15 other people when we saw two big blue lights in the sky a big one on top and small one on bottom the small one separated from the big one that kept going for another 4 seconds this was around 9:20pm
7/15/2014 05:34:48 am
Saw this while traveling eastbound on Interstate 10 between San Antonio and Seguin, Texas. Bright featureless white light with no tail low about 10 degrees above the horizon to the south moved rapidly north, then apparently split in two, then faded out into nothing north of IH 10. Moved staight and horizontal to the ground. I thought it was close by, but by the comments could have been many miles away. Did not seem to be a meteor by its horizontal motion, but the way it faded out was similar to some meteors I have seen.
7/15/2014 06:22:44 am
Sat., July 12th approx. 9:00-9:15 in Speegleville (west of Waco TX), we saw two bright lights, one was slightly brighter seemed to be flying in front of the other in unison moving from West to East. At the time, I thought they were flying low, above the treetops; I was wrong on that one! There was no sound nor could I see any form behind the lights.
7/15/2014 06:30:36 am
Sorry, it was flying East to West!
7/15/2014 12:40:10 pm
We seen the exact same thing being described a white light traveling horizontal picked up speed (really fast) then broke off into two and dissappeared. We were at the drive in movie here in tyler,tx. I told my husband i wish i had recorded it. A plane came thru about 5 min afterwards flashing red white and blue lights i have that on video. Awesome to see!
7/15/2014 04:33:10 pm
Seen the exact same thing in Seguin,TX as describe above. I have never seen a meteor fall straight across the sky. It was a beautiful bluish/white light, No sounds, going faster than space junk & no tail behind it. Spit into two balls of light then gone. Time was 9-9:15 pm by the time I looked up it was coming from the east going NW sky.
7/15/2014 07:28:15 pm
I made a seperate post of this i got pictures and videos we seen it last Sunday 2-3 am it lasted until sunrise zooming around changed colors . No way was this a meteor or any plane /helicopter I have seen and I work woth helicopters for a living. Very strange never seen anything simular
7/16/2014 05:48:13 am
Yup we saw it while heading to Austin passing by San Marcos on Saturday. The bright light appeared and sped from East to West in a straight line. It split in two with one light continuing west and the other heading back to the east. There wasn't any noise, no streak behind it , it was too fast for a jet (without noise and that low in the sky), and no blinking lights like those on airplanes and helicopters.
7/16/2014 03:28:19 pm
I seen it in austin tx at night it was 2 glowing circle lights then turned off it was exactly like this video so it's not a meteor it was like 15 feet above us.
7/19/2014 01:56:58 am
The night of the full moon, July 12th, I went for a walk around the lake in East Austin. I stood on the small footbridge by the lagoon and whispered my wishes to the moon. As I stood there gazing up, I noticed a blue-green light moving fast from east to west. It was too fast to be a plane, and made no sound. My eye tracked it across the sky, trying to figure out what it was, until the light split into two and those went off in opposite directions and faded away. I had never seen a UFO before, and it felt very strange. I only told a few people about it. It didn't even occur to me that other people would be watching the supermoon rise that night and had likely seen it as well, until I heard last night that someone else I know also witnessed the same thing... Apparently a LOT of people saw this! I guess they're calling it a comet, but it had no tail, no streaks. I've seen a lot of weird big green meteor looking things streaking over the eastern sky - but this was different. What was it?
6/21/2015 03:25:18 pm
Waco Texas, 10:15PM, 6/21/15. My husband, son and I were sitting outside. I looked and said " oh look a UFO" as I didn't see any lights to indicate it was an airplane. It looked like a moving star, but then it disappeared. we watched it travel for a good 45 seconds, faster than an airplane. It wasn't a shooting star, as I've seen lots of those.
11/8/2015 11:01:19 pm
Saw this too. Cameron Texas-around 9ish. Strange things....
