Texas is hotbed for UFO sightings

The Mutual UFO Network has revealed that Texas saw a large number of intriguing UFO cases last year.
A review board of scientists, chemists and engineers set up by MUFON to help investigate the most significant UFO reports has identified multiple Texas sightings within its 2012 top list. The find reflects the prevalence of reports from the state in general and cements Texas as one of the most significant UFO hotspots in the United States.

In one case, two jailers at the Johnson County Correctional Facility in Cleburne observed a dark triangular object hovering above them as they talked in a parking lot. "You could plainly and clearly see this thing - a huge triangle with no lights, no sound," said one of the witnesses, Kerry Snell. "There was no interaction. I didn't feel frightened. I didn't feel scared. I was just soaking in all the information. I'm just sitting there looking up at it."

Other reports from last year include the sighting of a black pentagon-shaped object that hovered over a car on a highway near Milano and a case in which three witnesses saw a large triangular object near the Texas-Oklahoma border with white lights and a red glowing center.

"Texas is one of the top five states every month for UFOs," said MUFON spokesman Roger Marsh.

Have you got anything a bit more recent and a bit more (lot more actually) convincing? Do a search for Queenland UFO's. There's tonnes out there. Perhaps you could explain the images? Venus perhaps?

Do a search for Queenland UFO's. There's tonnes out there. Perhaps you could explain the images? Venus perhaps? A great many of them yes, heck, you did not even know Venus moved LOL. The images are a multitude of things form mundane street lights through to failed launches. But no aliens in that lot anyway. Lets face it, I live here, if you were an alien would you come here? I am too big and scary.

Texas, like Australia's Outback is famous for Ghost lights isn't it? There are always reports of UFO's where earthlights are prevalent, that seems pretty straightforward?

A quick check tells me Texas hosts seven AFBs: Brooks City-Base Dyess AFB Goodfellow AFB Lackland AFB Laughlin AFB Randolph AFB Sheppard AFB More than any other US state? Could be a correlation there imo.

There is a lot of military aircraft going through where I am in Texas so I can see it being Stealth aircraft or drone testing. Not gonna lie it'd be nice if the government said something about tests of this sort, but meh doubt they would do that for many bias and un bias reasons.

A great many of them yes, heck, you did not even know Venus moved LOL. Even you must know the difference between a planet moving barely discernible by the hour compared to a flying object by the minute or second. For God's sake stop being so obtuse.

I always thought it was odd that so much of the UFO stuff seems to take place around Texas and New Mexico and those other mid/south states... Do aliens hate snow or something? lol
