A Houston resident spotted and was promptly perplexed by a stationary golden light (pictured to the right) - almost like a little fire - hovering in the sky. Although "meteor" is the first thing that comes to mind... especially considering how many have been zooming over Texas lately... but meteors don't just sit there for minutes at a time. A friend also saw it from a different part in town, and said they saw helicopters circling it at one point.
Very soon, I'll be putting a post together summing up a strange trend of late... people seeing fiery red/orange light simply hovering in the sky (pictured on the left). Others have seen solid glowing orbs that have not been debunked as stars as of yet. If you've seen Melancholia (a movie I'll be reviewing soon, as anyone with an interest in UFOs will LOVE it), this is probably creeping your shit out a little bit.
So, what are Texans (and the rest of the world, for that matter), seeing? A new star? Comet ISON?
Please report your UFO sighting if you've seen something similar!
In the meantime, read the MUFON report from the recent sighting in Houston:
I was driving home from work on the evening of the 24th at 1820 CST. I was stuck in traffic and looked up and there was a stationary large object hovering and glowing. I instantly called a friend and asked if he saw it abou ten miles away. He also saw it and said it was stationary. At this time I was look up through my sun roof and passing Under the thing and it was silent and high up. Then a very low flying grey aircraft flew over and was also very quiet. My friend then informed me because I had to pay attention to the road that there were helicopters circling it.
