August 13th, 2018 Update: I have followed up about this sighting and so far, the Eagle Pass News Leader has no updates to share. However, a new report did come into NUFORC (case S142623) that further detailed the sighting: "Many sightings all over town. Sphere like crafts were seen all over town by many witnesses. Some sightings started in day light and others were around 21:00. People reported seeing orb like figures in the sky that would quickly change directions and some would split into more all over town. Many of us tried taking pictures or video, but it didn't show up on camera. we also heard a lot of noises like if helicopters where nearby. And saw a large yellow orange sphere come down. Also during that time a lot of our pet dogs seemed very restless, and a lot of barking."
In addition to drones, Chinese lanterns, military flares, and nighttime parachuters, I am going to suggest a new theory - perhaps some Eagle Pass residents were witnessing the Perseid meteor shower, which hit its peak last night. While the main video doesn't seem to show that, other reports and photos of lights in the area could have come from that. Or maybe they witnessed aliens! As always, you be the judge, sharing your thoughts in the comments or on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
Video showing multiple bright lights traveling slowly, making formations, and mysteriously disappearing, has been posted to Facebook by a local news outlet, who claims a resident captured the footage. A MUFON report (case 93987) was also sent in that detailed the event and shared other photos apparently taken by other witnesses:

Photos posted to MUFON
Some online suggested that these lights could be Chinese lanterns, while others suggested flares. However, the photos sent into MUFON suggest something else entirely.
Do you live in Eagle Pass? Do you also have photos and videos to share of these UFOs? Report them!
