My family and i were at my sisters wedding Saturday night, the 29th. After the ceremony, around 8:30 pm, myself, my girlfriend, my neither and his girlfriend were sitting by the water facing south toward Galveston, tx. I noticed what at first appeared to be a star swaying back and forth. Over and over. After a while, it would sit still, then continue to move side to side in the sky. Since we were at a wedding, i unfortunately didn't have the time to watch it for more than 5-10 minutes, but wanted to report what we witnessed. Thanks.
Could this have been a satellite or star that only appeared to move back and forth, or a true blue UFO? Share your ideas in the comments. And if you saw a strange star in the Houston area recently, report your sighting.

I saw the same thing. I live in Hanover, pa and tonight 10/26/2014 I was taking at the trash when I looked up and saw what appeared to be a star at first but was brighter then the other stars around it. I continued to stare at it for a few minutes watching it flicker and sway from side to side (sometimes fast and sometimes slow) it appeared to have lights around it as well blinking ever few minutes or so. some were red or white or green near the "star". it seem to get closer then farther away and at a few points it looked to have a out line around it that looked like a disk that would just flash for a second or two then disappear

Saw what I thought to be a satellite at about 530 am in pearland tx, it then stopped moving and darted from side to side, occasionally making a large circle. Minutes later, 2 more showed up and would meet up with eachother, circle around then dart away. Happened until sun up

Hello. The date is 3/31/16, and I live near Mineola,TX (about 30 or so minutes from Tyler). The time is currently 11:18pm. I was laying down on my couch and when I happened to look out my kitchen window I saw a bright twinkling star. At first I thought it was a satellite, but the more I watched it, I started to notice it looked as if it was falling. I was panicking at first but then it started to move up and down while swaying back and forth. I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me but I was laying perfectly still and used the window pane as a line to measure whether the object was actually moving. It been about 25 minut s since I first starting watching it, and it is still moving but it looks as if the light is losing its brightness. I just find it odd that other commenters are from Texas. Especially since the original post was dated a few days from 3/31. I don't know what it is, but it's kind of creepy. Wish I had my telescope here..

I first noticed this occurrence around the same time as your post. After racking my brain for a few weeks the only explaintion that made any sense was an optical illusion caused by involuntary eye movement I didn't fully believe that's what's going on but I bought it to ease my mind.later however I dismissed this when a friend and I watched the same one as we both commented the same time when we seen large or erratic movement. It's hard to find information on this on the web. I live in Whitehouse just south of Tyler all though I have seen reports from all over the country.this is not sattlites nor is it the space station. I thought the brighter ones could have been something else until the other night, the night before the eclipse, I noticed the three stars of orians belt were moving, not as much as the larger brighter ones but were moving the top and bottom ones moved slightly vertical while the middle one horizontal. Seems strange how very little information is out there. If these "stars" are moving there should be people researching this seeing as that would be going against the laws of physcis

This happened in Copperas Cove Texas, September 12 2017..My husband and I were sitting outside at about 10 tonight looking at the sky, when we saw what we thought was they playing that kept moving back and forth and making an occasional Circle slowly across the sky. It was too high to be a helicopter it was pretty high up. After staring at it for about 10 minutes maybe 15 I joked and flashed a light at it several times, and coincidentally or not it then glad it across the sky like a normal satellite and disappeared. After that I'm not sure what happened we went in. It was honestly really kind of creepy and it definitely was not a normal airplane,

I was living in NE Texas near Mineola (Hainesville) in the summer of 2012. We saw many strange lights in the sky that summer, including multi-colored, twinkling, swaying points of light. It became a regular occurrence. I now live in the Chihuahuan Desert and we are seeing the same lights again.

I watched the same thing on 11-15-18 for over an hour and a half. It was where what they are calling siriuS usually is. It was definitely in the atmosphere. what star charts call pup looked to be controlling it from outside of the atmosphere. It turned while shining a spotlight and shooting object from itself. I even shined a light towards it and it turned and came my way. It fluttered around for almost an hour after sunrise.
