Out There stories relating to "Texas UFO"

Monday, March 14, 2016

There have been a number of UFO events over Texas in recent weeks, including an unusual "cloud" UFO over Whitley Strieber's home city of San Antonio. Ken Cherry is interviewed by what sounds like some sort of clown about a sighting in Dallas. To listen, click here. You have to wonder if the media will ever grow up about this subject, but Ken's remarks are intelligent and accurate.

The San Antonio video is quite unusual. The witness describes the object he taped as being cloaked. It could be some sort of odd weather phenomenon, but it's hard to see how a normal cloud would act as this one does.

Both of these stories are rated B-Possibly True. Except for the clown. He gets an F-Definitely Idiotic.

A number of different videos have been posted of these orange lights over El Paso, so this is not a CGI effect. They are too high to be drones, and while it's possible that they are sky lanterns, the lack of flicker would suggest not. One commenter says that they are flares dropped by his military unit, but the witness who took the video says that he saw them move across the sky at one point "in the blink of an eye." If the latter is true, then they are unknowns. Graded C, possible unknown.

We initially dismissed this one as a lens effect, but that's not what it is. There appears to have been a circular object in the night sky over Galveston in late June. It 'silently crossed the night sky' according to witnesses. Do we have a drone that could do this? Certainly nothing even close to being declassified. This is a genuine unknown. (But look closely, it's hard to see in this video.)

This very typical witness account of an enormous triangle reminds us that the UFO phenomenon is constant and ongoing. There is no reason to doubt the witness. Unfortunately, there were no images made, and as the sighting took place at around three in the morning, there is also no corroboration.

Did you see it, or something else you can't explain? Let us know, we're interested! Click here to file a report.

This video shows a very fast moving object rising from right to left out of the right corner of the frame. At 40 seconds, the poster provides a slow motion repeat of the image that shows the object clearly. It is not a bird or plane, and does not appear to be a photoshopped. Probable unknown from South Texas, which is in the midst of a UFO flap.

This video posted on YouTube by truck driver Ronnie Dawson of Coleman Texas shows clips of a UFO that he took with a phone camera. This appears to be a credible case, and we are investigating further.

Laredo, Texas UFO researchers are finding a significant number of unexplained objects in local skies, but it's not because of UFO reports being received from the public, but rather because they are part of a growing movement in the research community: the go out with good equipment and obtain UFO data on their own. This is perhaps the next wave in UFO research. It is getting much easier to do, as UFOs become more common and seemingly more willing to appear on demand.

This appears to be some sort of a cloud, but the witnesses claim that it was moving at such high speed that they didn't see it while the photo was being taken. So, obviously, no ordinary cloud.

This object taped over McAllen, Texas on January 23 could be a plane, but if so it has a very unusual pattern of lights. Still two strobes are visible. However, UFOs often strobe as well. Probable unknown

This series of images from a wildlife camera in south Texas near the town of Nixon shows a triangle of lights near a deer feeder. There is also a mist that local residents say is unexplained. This could be an indication of more UFO activity in the area, but there is no way to verify that these nighttime photographs are actually anything unusual.

The video playing here is a local news report about the sightings in the area. There is far more sighting activity than imagery coming from the area, which is what makes the video important. Local MUFON investigators are doing a useful job.

Cotulla, a town in south Texas, is the source of two UFO reports, the one pictured here being the most unusual. It allegedly shows a UFO on the ground. Certainly, the object is strange, but there is no clear proof that it's an unknown object, only that it's not clear what it is from the photo. However, an incident in the same community last September, which also involved unknown lighted objects hovering close to the ground, suggests that some sort of ongoing UFO activity may be involved.

The zoom feature on the camera that took this video could be distorting the shape of a plane, but the voices in the background suggest that witnesses were seeing something they found unusual. To the naked eye, a plane probably would have been obvious. In addition, the glow on the object is quite consistent. If it was a plane, as the angle changed, the glow of the sun on the fuselage would have moved, but it doesn't. Therefore the object may well be emitting the glow itself. This is a possible unknown.

This is a pretty weird one. Apparently Google Street View captured a UFO image while recording the streets of Jacksonville, Texas.

This video, taken with an infrared camera, is almost certainly authentic. However, it could as easily be a classified aircraft as a UFO from another world. Its flight characteristics, however, suggest that it is not an aerodynamic object but is staying aloft by some other means.

This group of objects recorded over Lubbock, Texas on June 6 could be balloons, but if so they are large, white and highly reflective. They are not normal weather balloons. The camera shake makes it fairly unlikely that this is a CGI effect. Note the child's voice midway into the session cry out, 'it's a space ship.' Probable unknown.

This report from Whitley Strieber's hometown of San Antonio may or may not be a sighting of a large candle lantern or other sky illumination. The description of beams of light coming out of it and structure beneath the larger surface actually suggests a manmade sky illumination of some sort, but we are posting it because of all of the other orange light UFO sightings being reported at present, and the conviction of the witnesses that it was something unusual.

This could be a balloon at high altitude, but it could also be an unknown. The skin of balloons is usually very well defined and gleaming in bright sunlight. This object does not appear to be out of focus, so what is the haze around it? Out There is on the fence about this one.

The fireball that crossed Texas and Oklahoma last week and was captured on a policeman's video is now under investigation by the FAA. Although it has been dismissed as a meteor, the fact that it had no glowing debris tail calls that idea into question. The object was also seen to change colors as it moved through the sky. (The video of the object appeared in Out There last week.)

It seems to be following a meteoric trajectory, but there's no trail behind it, so what is it? A meteor that bright would be expelling glowing material. It would appear to be a streak, not a discreet fireball.

The person who shot this video is convinced that it is not a lens reflection or lights associated with the oil rig he was on near Gonzales, Texas.

Of course it's always possible that this is a genuine unknown, but the fact that it is slow moving and has a slightly bowed shape does suggest that, unlike the Peru video just posted, it is probably a cylindrical balloon.

It's interesting that the Mexican and Guatemalan governments are involved with a documentary that claims that the Maya had ET contact. We will certainly be keeping an eye on this.

This video, at a stretch, could be a plane, but it really does look like something different. Taped over Whitley Strieber's home town.

There is no reason to doubt the authenticity of this video, and the object is not displaying legal illumination.

Thanks to Linda Moulton Howe and Earthfiles.com, we have received an excellent video of a strange object that comes down from the sky, loops over land, then goes back up. It was taken by the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport Tower Cam, and is definitley not a special effect.

Good job of enchancement of this image, but still very little useful information beyond the fact that the lights are colored.

Interesting video from Texas, shot near Austin.

Texas has had a higer than average number of UFO sightings in October.
