11/27/2017 Update: The witness has followed up with me since sending in this report. Here's what they had to say (and it seems a few online agree with their sentiment): "I looked up lantern events in that area for that date. I found no related events during that time on the internet. I have no explanation for what we saw. I’ve never seen anything like it before. I was traveling from Houston, TX to Joshua, TX for Thanksgiving celebrations that week."
A quick, but great video showing a large collection of bright, twinkling lights hovering in the nighttime sky over Texas has been submitted to TexasUFOs. But could these lights simply be Chinese lanterns or even stars? As always, you be the judge. Check out the video and testimony sent in by a witness who wishes to remain anonymous:
Seen odd light grouping in the sky. Believe we were passing through Alvarado, TX.
Do you also live in the area? If you saw these mystery lights as well, help crack this case and report your sighting!
Do you have theories on what these UFOs could be? Are they easy enough to explain as Chinese lanterns, or are these surveillance drones or aliens? You can put your theories in the comments below or share them on Facebook , Twitter or Instagram!
