Wow, those are some fascinating pictures.  Multiple witnesses, multiple pictures taken at different angles.  I really don't know what to think about these.

Interesting article and pictures.

I guess time will eventually tell if it's a hoax of sorts, some kind of strange natural phenomenon, or remains one of those unexplained mysteries.

RC quadcopter is the first thought, and yes they can make them look like discs

That would have to be the biggest RC I've ever seen.

How can you tell how big it is?

20 years ago it would've been epic and believable. It's hard to judge since there isn't a video of it. A table sized drone from a hobby store can be fixed with inexpensive LCD lights and flown silently over the populous. The pics over the freeway could have been photoshopped and clouds added for distortion and perspective. Hate to be dismissive. Well done though

I live in Houston and saw the lightning show but missed this "UFO". The street lights along I-10 look like this "UFO". I even posted one as a "UFO" on UM a couple years ago.
I don't know anything about photo shopping or if that is what this is...I'm heading out I'll get a pic of one and post it.

I've watched the video, Seeder, and always wondered how those things flew. We sell something similar at work.

Whether those pics are real or not, I just watched a Weather Channel special on paranormal phenomena during weather situations. Apparently, there have been sightings when there was tornadoes and strong thunderstorms. They say, that it is probably because the crafts are trying to charge their ship up with energy. And that is why they are sighted numerously during bad weather. Just a thought.
