A passenger aboard a plane landing at the Port Aransas Airport decided to snap a shot of the view. When they went back to review their photos, they realized they'd captured a very large, grey, disc-like object in the sky, with a few orbs hovering around it.
For some reason, this story has taken the UFO community by storm. And honestly, I'm a little perplexed as to why. Although this an interesting anomaly, one that UFO-Blogger.com is linking to another similar pilot sighting that famous ufologist Stanton Friedman covered, since no one saw this thing in motion, it can be easily debunked - latest theories include clouds and the propeller tip.
The only reason I can gather that this Texas UFO sighting has received more attention than other, more compelling ones is that this story was covered by local news. I actually am not as amazed by the large gray object as I am the orbs that appear around it, though they could very well be birds or lens flares or smudges on the airplane window:

And a few quotes from the story:
Miles, 41, of San Antonio, said he recently flew to Port Aransas to spend the day walking the beach.
