Lights flying in a clear pattern aren't rare when you go over UFO history, but because they indicate a real craft or intelligent control, these reports come in only occasionally on a day-to-day basis. For some reason, we've seen a lot of these reports over the past month, though - in Austin and South Texas.
The witness is a veteran flyer and is pretty used to seeing commercial air craft. These were not commercial air craft. Best part is - this wasn't a one-time deal. The lights have showed up in the area multiple times! Here's the full description of what this Flower Mound family has been seeing, kindly submitted to TUS:
8/1..... 12am... While taking my dogs out before going to bed, I was in a pitch-back backyard that backs to an equally pitch-black golf course, I noticed the usual flow of planes on approach to DFW, which is maybe 15 miles south of the northern end of Flower Mound, where my home is located. A set of bright lights, in pyramid shape (broader at the bottom, more narrow at the top) appeared to be moving east->west perpendicular to the aforementioned planes on approach to DFW ......what caught my eye was the bottom->top sequence of the flashing lights, combined with the lack of any discernible engine noise. While I am not a trained pilot, I am a person that flys approx. 48 weeks per year and have done so for more than 25yrs. feel I am pretty familiar with common commercial aircraft and this was like nothing I have ever observed prior.... Aug 8th, around dusk, my family and I were in the pool when I noticed a similar set of lights heading east....I pointed out this sight to my wife and children. Over the next 60 minutes, my family identiified 10 similar shapes in the evening sky.
Did you see this, too? Let me know!
