UFO in the sky? Texas is one of the top 3 states for sightings

Posted by dandare on February 17, 2008

ufo online

According to the Victoria Advocate “UFO in the sky? texas is one of the top three states for sightings” (posted 15th feb,2008).It mentions “The 24-year-old was traveling down U.S. Highway 183 – between Cuero and Gonzales – on his way home from a New Year’s party when he said he spotted a UFO in the cool, night sky” (extract from article).

 He later went on to say that it dissappeared and reappeared 30 minutes later. He video taped it, and this can be seen below.

and later

Not to sure what to think of this video – the skeptic in me wants to shout out and say no, due to shaking of the video (could just be a star/planet,ect)…not really enough to go on from this, i’m afraid (also no reference points-ie a part of a house,tree,ect to know how big it is). Although the second video, was taken later (not referring to this article) and seems slightly more interesting?Ok…. I’m going to be frank- they both could be anything.

MUFON add in this article, that there are between 15-20 sightings a month, putting it in the top 3 states…. however, they do mention that 9 out of 10 times, they are explained as IFO’s. It then goes on to say that:

“In early January, Nancy Adams was on her way home from work at about 6 p.m. when a light streaked across the sky and fizzled away like a firework.

Her home sits on a tall hill about two miles from U.S. Highway 87, she said, and with the cloudless sky, she had a clear view.

“”I’ve seen shooting stars many times in my life, but that wasn’t what this was,”” said Adams, who works at an area pharmacy.””This had a trail of fire behind it.””

Adams described herself as “as big a believer as the next guy,” but said she never thought the incident was anything more than a meteor.

“They say those things fall to the ground all the time,” she said. “It was neat”” (extract from article). MUFON has noticed that there are more sightings being reported now, and from all types of people.

At the end of the article it has :

The Mutual UFO Network offers 10 tips for those who see a UFO:

Don’t panic but do protect yourself.

This could be a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you’ll want to remember what you see.

Remain objective.

Attempt to determine what else the object might be. Not all flying objects are extraterrestrial.

Record the event through photos or a video camera.

If you don’t have those items with you, attempt to draw what you’ve seen.

Make an audio recording of what you see as it occurs.

If you don’t have a recorder on hand, write the information down.

If other people are with you, ask them to record their observations.

Don’t discuss it with them until after you’re done compiling what you’ve seen.

If the UFO left evidence behind, don’t disturb it.

Take pictures of the site and take precise notes. Take precautions before touching anything.

If the UFO is far away, attempt to give some idea as to its size.

At arm’s length, determine what could cover the object from view, such as a quarter, dime or tennis ball.

Attempt to determine how far away the UFO is and how fast it’s traveling.

How long did it take to cross the sky? How far off the ground was it?

If you come upon an extraterrestrial being, protect yourself.

Reach a safe distance from the being and record any information possible, as long as you remain safe.

Report your sighting to a research organization.

You can report directly to the Mutual UFO Network online at http://www.mufon.com/reportufo.htm.

    Dan,
    As you can see in the comment section of that second video, I forwarded some questions to the original uploader a couple of days ago. I have no idea about what to think of that light effect (similar to the strange streaks of light we saw on the official texas video). Maybe it’s due to hand movement, maybe it’s not. Pitty that we haven’t received an answer yet.

  2. Thanks for the update.

    I see there is still no reply to your questions on you tube, Steve. Good questions by the way. mm…those strange streaks of light are wierd? wonder what that is.
    i just have a gut feeling this is a hoax?

    THIS IS DEREK, I JUST SAW THIS LINK AN CLICKED INTO IT. I DO APOLIGIZE FOR NOT ANSWERING RIGHT AWAY. AN ALSO THE QUESTIONS ON YOUTUBE. WHEN I TRY TO REPLY. I PUSH TO POST THE COMMENT. AN MY COMP. STAYS STUCK AN IT NEVER REPLIES. I AM ABLE TO REPLY TO SOME PEOPLE WHEN MY COMPUTER LETS ME. WELL, THE FIRST VIDEO IS ONLY 10 MINS. BECAUSE THATS ALL I WAS ABLE TO POST. ITS REALLY A 25 MIN VIDEO. I WILL DEF. PUT THE REST ON THERE FOR YOU TO SEE IF YOU ARE INTRESTED. ON THE FIRST VIDEO, I KNOW IT LOOKED LIKE SHAKING FROM MY HAND. AN, IF I WAS YOU I WOULD BE A SKEPTIC AS WELL. I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I WAS NOT SHAKING DURING THE TAPING OF THE VIDEO. I KEPT IT AS STILL AS POSSIBLE. WHAT I SAW THAT NIGHT IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE ON TAPE OF WHICH YOU HAVE POSTED. THE 2ND RECORDING WAS USED WITH A DIFFRENT TYPE OF CAMERA EFFECT. DUE TO THE FACT THAT WHEN I SET IT IN THAT MODE, IT BRIGTEND UP THE AREA MAKING THE VISABLE ON THE CAMERA. IT WAS CHANGING IN THE SKY THAT COLOR. I CANT HONESTLY SAY THATS WHAT IT WAS AGAIN. BUT, IT IS DEFINATELY SOMETHING VERY UNUSUAL. IF YOU HAVE NEMORE QUESTIONS. I WILL BE LOOKING INTO THIS SITE. JUST LET ME KNOW. SRY FOR THE LONG WAIT.

    Hi Derek….. could you please answer the questions that Steve mentioned on you tube (ie. as ufospider) ….. “But could you tell me if you saw the object moving around. You captured some streaks of light as well… was this caused by the movement of your hand or by the movement of the object?”
    and……………
    “Can you explain why this video is called “ufo in victoria”? The introduction says it was taped in Brazil. Can you confirm this (and maybe the source). Interesting video!”

    I would prefer that you could answer them on youtube video link so we could prove this is you…sorry for the mistrust but i get alot of comments from claimed people. You can comment here too as well, that would be cool. Do not worry if you do not see your comments immediately, as they need to be aproved by me, before coming onto the blog, due to spam.
    Thanks for replying….
    Regards :)

    THE REASON IT SAYS FILMED IN BRAZIL. IS BECAUSE IT IS PART OF THE TRACK I SET AS THE BACKGROUND MUSIC. WHEN I WAS RECORDING THE OBJECT I WAS STILL. I WAS HOLDING IT STEADY. BUT, I DO UNDERSTAND EVEN THE SLIGHTEST OF MOVEMENT MAY HAVE CAUSED IT TO LOOK THE WAY IT DID. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THE PATTERN IN THE VIDEO HOW IT INTERLOOPS WITHIN ITSELF AN THE LIGHT COMING OFF OF IT. I COULDNT SAY IF IT WAS A REAL UFO. BUT, IT IS AN ANOMOLY. THIS IS ME THOUGH. DEREK GARCIA. JUST SO U KNOW ITS ME. I JUST REPLIED TO YOU ON UFO SPIDER. BUT, I DONT KNOW IF ITS GONNA GO THROUGH. MY NAME ON YOUTUBE IS EARTHLYSINNERS. JUST SO YOU KNOW. AN I LIVE IN VICTORIA,TX. IM JUST POSTING THIS ON HERE AS WELL.JUST IN CASE IT DIDNT GO THROUGH ON YOUTUBE. BUT I DID POST AN SAVE IT. NEWAY. IF YOU HAVE ANYMORE QUESTIONS. JUST LET ME KNOW.

    Hi derek…. thanks for your quick reply…. i’m very short on time, but will reply to your comments within the next couple of days!Thanks for being frank about it all…
    Regards

  10. DEREK GARCIA said

    alright. well just let me know. im usually out looking int he sky to see if i could see it again. i have been seeing some activity in the night sky. very bright light, which changes many colors. im not trying to jump to conclusions. but, my camera only goes so far. i need a telescope to actually view what i am seeing. wheather it be a star or something else. my brother had seen it as well as my girl. in the camera you can once again see it moving but to the eye it looks stationary. so not really to sure what to think of it.

    Sorry for the wait Derek…. first off, i would advise that you report this sighting, and the fact you have a video to MUFON.com (they also have a report you can fill in online (if you have not done this already). There is a link to the site above, under UFO organisations (on the left margin). Theya re a big organisation, and can probably help you much more than i can.
    Also it might be an idea to go to http://www.heavens-above.com/ as this has alot of information on meteors,ect and what is in the sky…. you can set a time/date and where you are, and it will tell you any information (if any) about what was in the sky that night. This is good just to double check yourself, if anything else was in the sky (IFO=indentified flying object).
    If you ever have a chance of seeing this type of thing again, it would be a good idea to take the exact time as well, even do your own drawing, and any first impressions you had, and were it was moving in the sky (if at all possible, as this all adds to getting a clearer picture of what it might be).
    Also if possible, after or during the sighting, or both, to do a quick video on any outstanding features in the location (ie a building, and surrounding area); if it is possible to return during the day, if seen at night, this would be great too, so we could get a lie of the land, too compare.
    I have no idea of what you saw, i’m afraid…. if anyone else has any ideas/advice to give derek please leave a comment.
    Thanks for getting in touch with this blog, derek.
    Happy hunting.
    regards
