UFO News Update: Houston Sighting Could Support ‘Rattled’ Washington Witness’ Account

This UFO news update features a sighting of a red light UFO in Houston, Texas that shares many similarities with a UFO sighting in Davenport, Washington, only two days earlier. In his report to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the Houston witness states that he was cleaning up after a fireworks celebration when he looked up and saw a bright red light UFO moving across the sky. The witness provides the details needed to rule out a meteor in his observation.

“I was outside watching the fireworks about 20 mins earlier after a new years eve party, as i was helping to clean up outside i heard gunshots so i happend to look at the sky and thats when i saw it. it was a bright red circular light moving across the sky. at first i thought it was a plane or comet but i had never seen a plane with that bright red of a color and it wasnt flashing so i knew it couldnt be it. the object was flying in a continous path but would ascend and descend at certain points, as i watched it fly i attempted to take a video but it was dark so i took pictures instead. at the moment upon seeing this i felt confused as to what it could be. i lost sight of the object as it disappeared over some trees, but not before the bright red light was turned off and the object was grey.”

A meteor does not move up and down on the horizon as it travels across the sky. In both UFO sightings, the witnesses reported a red light in the sky. Fortunately, the witnesses took pictures, so that researchers can compare the Davenport photo with the Houston photo for reference. However, this UFO news includes some contrasts to the Davenport UFO sighting.

The most striking contrast is that the Davenport UFO did not move, according to the witness. She stated that it was hovering when she first saw it and stayed that way until it disappeared. With that, one can rule out Chinese lanterns and many other mundane explanations. The wind alone would cause some type of movement for a balloon type craft.
