An Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was reported hovering over Brownsville, Texas, this week, inspiring speculation that, since it was hovering over water (the city is just off the Gulf of Mexico), it could be from a nearby underwater base. The UFO in question was captured on video as well.
The Houston Chronicle reported August 9 that UFO enthusiasts were "going nuts" over a short video uploaded to YouTube by UFO Casebook that depicts a glowing white object hovering over Brownsville, the southernmost city in Texas. According to the witness (via the Mutual UFO Network report), the "bright, oval shape object moving slowly from left to right" was spotted on the way back from a fishing trip.
The witness also noted that, "The object had a small object that was trailing the big oval object and was absorbed, but was not captured on the video."
As the Chronicle noted, the video is of "poor quality and shaky," but that seems to be all that is needed to start the discussion about what the object might be and where it might have originated.
Scott C. Waring at UFO Sightings Daily believes that what is being seen is the reflection of an adversely affected cloaking device. He adds, "This UFO appears to be over the ocean which could lead us to assume that the UFO came from an underwater base not far away."
That underwater UFO base he refers to could be the one claimed to be off the coast of Cuba at Guantanamo Bay. A MUFON report posted in early March by a retired Marine who was stationed at the U.S. base in Cuba in 1968 and 1969 revealed that he witnessed numerous comings and goings of UFOs just off the Cuban coast, where craft would appear out of the water or disappear into the waves of the Caribbean.
The witness also recounted an incident when he was on guard duty and a UFO appeared at an abandoned Cuban guard post and slowly flew overhead. Although he and a Marine colleague were ordered out of the area, he claimed that he observed military personnel and a camera crew filming the object (for about three hours), which he described as a "huge white cloud with a blue/white, baby blue pulsating light in the middle of it."
There also have been recent sightings of anomalous entities found via Google Earth on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico that some have claimed could be UFO bases. Waring could very well have been talking about those underwater "bases."
In July, Inquisitr reported that a UFO hunter, a YouTube user named Mexico Geek, uploaded a video where he described the finding of a massive set of linear structures off the coast of Mexico in the Gulf of California. Dubbed an "alien city," the gigantic underwater structure measures 76 miles in length and 2.4 miles at its widest point.
That particular finding came on the heels of another Google Earth user's discovery earlier in the month of what seemed to be a giant pyramid. Also reported by Inquisitr, the giant pyramidal structure is located a couple hundred miles off Mexico's west coast and measures approximately 8.5 miles in diameter. It still remains uncertain as to exactly what the structure might be, but there has been speculation that the pyramid might be a UFO mega-base -- or that it might actually be a massive UFO, parked and resting on the ocean floor.
However, as MUFON is wont to disclaim in their UFO case reports, most of those UFO sightings can be explained as something either natural or man-made. And as fantastic as those "bases" found off the coast of Mexico (the giant pyramid and the alien city) are, they could very well be, as incredible as it might seem, natural structures as well. Or something man-made or caused by human actions. As for the Marine's UFO report about a possible UFO base off Guantanamo, that requires a bit more information and investigation.
