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.
