The #1 Paranormal News Site
The Houston area has been a hotspot for UFOs so far this year, if a website dedicated to tracking UFO sightings in Texas is to be believed.
Texas UFO Sightings welcomes photos and videos from Texans reporting on alleged UFO sightings as people come across them. The reports range from believable to absurd.
SIGNING OFF: Popular UFO Sightings Daily website to go dormant
In one reported sighting, a submission includes a photo from an April 5 Astros game at Minute Maid Park against the Seattle Mariners. The tipster told the website that “an orb seems to roll out onto the field from between the catcher’s legs and roll toward the pitcher. … The players did not seem to notice.”
Other reports range from bright, unidentifiable lights at night to strange disc-shaped objects traveling through the sky. There are some suggestions the objects could be mistaken for airplanes flying in and out of Bush Intercontinental and Hobby airports, but people deny these notions vehemently.
“We had to video this strange object in the sky,” wrote one UFO witness in Montgomery County who claimed to see a flying orb on Feb. 26. “It was definitely not an airplane. The object moved from side to side and up and down. It would go from bright to dim and back to bright again.”
MOSCOW REPORT: Russian newspaper claims UFO spotted near sun; NASA nope
UFO sightings in America have a long history, dating back to at least 1865 reports the American Chronicle.
The Missouri Democrat ran an article that year after interviewing a trapper who claimed to see a “bright, luminous body” in the skies. The headline for the story was “A Strange story-remarkable discovery.”
Texas UFO Sightings doesn’t claim that any of the submitted photos and videos are in fact flying saucers. Instead, the site asks people if they believe the objects could be satellites or military crafts.
