Date of sighting: December 8, 2013
Location of sighting: Pearland, Texas, USA
December 08, 2013 Pearland, Texas at 9:27 pm My son was taking out the recycling when he came running inside yelling to me and telling me that there was a weird object moving in the sky in circles from left to right. I went outside and noticed the strange movements and the change of colors. I called my husband and we could not believe this was happening to us. It sure was something that we had not seen before. It kept moving for about a minute. The object was moving too fast and irregularly to be an airplane or a helicopter, and also the color pattern was not something we had ever seen.
My husband went inside to grab his camera, and as he was coming out, it moved quickly, flashed, then disappeared. After 2 seconds, there was a loud thunder-like noise, yet there was no rain or thunder before of after this happened. No good pictures were able to be taken, just one cellphone picture, which just looks like a small bright dot in the dark. Ill still attach the picture anyways. There were no visible stars on this night. This was really strange. What could this have been? I have heard of weather balloons, but I dont think this was one.
Has anybody seen something like this before?
