At first, the white object in the sky looked like a cloud. A weather balloon, perhaps ?
The motionless, cigar-shaped object spotted last week near Fort Worth left the witness stumped. And a video of the sighting has since gone viral, opening the door to UFO theories online.
“It was the oddest thing I’ve ever seen,” the unidentified witness said, according to their report to Texas UFOs, a website that tracks mysterious UFO sightings throughout the state. “I watched it for about 20 minutes. It didn’t move. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything in the sky stay that still before, not even for a few seconds, let alone 20 minutes.”
Several people commented on the YouTube video guessing it could be a blimp. However, a Texas UFOs administrator said they couldn’t find any information the Goodyear blimp was scheduled to be in Keller on Nov. 18, the day of the sighting.
A few people went along for the ride on YouTube, with one commenter comparing the footage to “the classic cigar-shaped UFO” he saw in the mid 90’s over Reading, Pennsylvania.
