3/21 Update: a similar Texas UFO sighting occurred in January of this year, see video below!
That's not a plane, a bird, a helicopter, or Super Man. That leaves few possibilities, including a drone - something that apparently was a common sight at SXSW.
This video was shot at 3rd and San Jacinto Street during the fest, and in it you can hear reveling spectators jokingly asking the UFO to take them away. The witness - who reported this sighting in an email to me - is very perplexed as to what this would be and would love some input.
Although drone is an easy card to play, this is a really great video no matter how you slice it.
And of course it makes one wonder... the more amazing a craft is, the more likely we are to debunk it, huh?
Check out the video:
Here's part of the email I received from the witness:
I would really appreciate it if y'all can help me out an tell me what it is...this was during SXSW in Austin,Tx I recorded from 3rd and San Jacinto...thanks for your help, oh and sorry please excuse the language in the video...lol thank you
