Austin has been a magnet for some pretty crazy UFOs over the past year, most notably the triangle craft that hovered over ACL this past October. Well, the latest YouTube video to come out of the city is no less impressive.
Check out the following photo recap, video, and witness testimony - which detail the account of a strange ball of light hovering in the mid night air, bopping around in circles, and eventually shooting straight down to... well, seemingly the ground. It's similar to a another sighting in the area from about a month earlier.
Here's the video, as well as some quotes from it in case you're at work and can't watch!:
We're watching a UFO that's changing directions over Austin.
Finally, here's the original testimony submitted to iReport.Cnn.com:
We saw this UFO/drone moving in ways that normal airplanes certainly don't over downtown Austin last night 1/10/14 around 8:30pm. We initially thought it was the police helicopter, until it suddenly stopped and moved in a different direction. It maneuvered erratically for about 2-3 minutes before I thought to get out my iPhone and start recording it. This was video was taken from the Cherywood coffee house parking lot on 38 1/2 Street looking southwest toward downtown Austin. If it is some sort of drone, the FAA should at least know about this activity.
Did you spot this Austin UFO? If so, report your sighting. If you have theories as to what this could have been (drone, CGI, RC plane, helicopter?), sound off in the comments!
