Texas Has Had Dozens of UFO Sightings So Far in 2019
Today (July 2) is World UFO Day, so it's a good time to look out the window to see if you notice any flying saucers hovering about. Texas has already had a bunch of UFO sightings this year.
The National UFO Reporting Center has been around since 1974 and lovers of outer space have been relying on the group to track every report of an unidentified flying object since then. The UFO Reporting Center says there have been more than 120,000 UFO sightings around the globe over the years. And a few of those have been in Texas in 2019.
In the first three months of 2019, there were at least 24 UFO sightings, according to the National UFO Reporting Center. The San Antonio Express News said the reports ranged from "strange lights" to "crafts hovering above people's cars and houses."
There have been dozens more UFO sightings in Texas since April, including one in Bryan. That anonymous reporter said he or she saw "Three lights in a vertical row." In Kingwood, TX, someone saw "3 fireballs flying in a triangle." Other UFO sightings have happened in Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Sugarland, Pearsall, New Braunfels, and Lindale.
That Lindale sighting happened January 9th, and someone said this about what they found in the sky: "Seen a formation type of lights. Was there then disappeared after a few minutes." Oh Texans, we love you. It could have been a hovering spacecraft or perhaps it could have been a reflection off of a Whataburger sign, but no matter what it was "unidentified," and therefore a UFO. Keep watch, East Texas, keep watch. There may be more.
World UFO Day is celebrated every year on July 2, and marks the anniversary of the Roswell Incident in 1947. On that day, witnesses said they saw a "disc-shaped object" in the sky and heard an explosion. After that came the controversy about whether or not aliens visited us and crashed their spaceship that day, and whether there might have been a cover-up. There is your break room conversation for the rest of your workday.
No matter what you think about aliens and UFOs, tonight will be a good night to grab your significant other and/or the kids and sit on a blanket and stare at the sky for a while. Apparently, we've got plenty happening in the skies over Texas.
If you see a UFO, report it HERE, and let us know! And remember, E.T. will not make a good pet.
