A lot of States in the US can probably claim the mantle of most UFO sightings; New York, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida come to mind immediately.
But the one state that holds the title lately is one you wouldn’t think of; Texas.
A Texas witness reports a slow moving disc-shaped object without lights moved over northwest San Antonio on November 21, 2010, “turned on its lights,” stopped and hovered for a minute, then “flew rapidly to the north into cloud coverage,” according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“It flew very, very slowly and wobbled from side to side,” the witness stated.
The witness stated that the unlit object was noticeable in the night sky because “it was slightly darker than the sky line.” The object then flew into an area “well lit with flood lights.”
No video or images were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on November 22, 2010. San Antonio is the second largest city in Texas, population 1.4 million.
Texas is a current UFO ALERT 3 rating, with a higher than average number of UFO sightings recently. Texas had 50 UFO sighting reports in October 2010, the most of any state.
You can read more details about other recently reported cases at the UFO Examiner home page.

The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Texas MUFON State Director Steve Hudgeons investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
TX, November 21, 2010 - came in East on North West side San Antonio, Tx, disk shape, wobbled left to right traveling slowly, sudddenly bright white, hovered over area, flew rapidly to NORTH. MUFON Case # 26707.
I was alone out side and looked out toward horizon, saw an object with out lights flying from East to West on North West side of San Antonio, Tx.
It flew very, very slowly and wobbled from side to side.
I noticed it in the night sky because it was slightly darker than sky line. It flew to an area that is well lit with flood lights, as it is fly line for commercial planes to and from SA airport.
As it arrived to this area very slowly, it suddenly ” turned on its lights” bright white and glowing. It hovered there for a minute and then rapidly flew to the North into cloud cover and I could no longer see it.
I have seen several odd objects here on the NW side the last 2 weeks. Not planes and certainly not helicopters as I have seen them flying around the other ” strange objects” recently.
I was in Texas four and a half years ago on a vacation and I couldn’t really enjoy it because I had bad thrombosis in my legs, probably from flying. My daughters did and took many photos. A lot were taken around the San Antonio area and none had any UFOs in them.
Lots of C5-A Galaxies though.
