Footage has emerged of a mysterious white object that hovered silently in the sky over Keller for 20 minutes.
According to reports, the object was seen by multiple witnesses on November 18th of this year.

"It was the oddest thing I've ever seen," said one witness. "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."

While some Internet users have suggested that the object could have been a blimp, UFO researcher Jane Kyle was unable to find any record of a scheduled blimp appearance over the area on that day.

As things stand, a definitive explanation for the sighting continues to remain elusive.

The UFO footage itself can be viewed in the video below ( starts at 00:35 ).

Well, I like the blimp idea although there is no writing on it or other marking that would identify it that way. the cloud...? I doubt it. Both ends of the object are rounded, which is not the irregular wispy shape we expect of a cloud. Also, the object stands alone, defying what seems to otherwise be "cloud level" that day, does not move (tho it does seem to rotate a bit) or change shape as if it is solid, and the color is quite different than the rest of the visible sky. "blimp" is the best deion that I can give for its shape, although I don't demand that it actually be a blimp. Could be an ... [More]

I voiced my opinion, but believe whatever you want to believe. People always do. Regardless of facts.

TexasUFOs gives similar examples that occur around sunset. Why not a reflection?

Give us a hint. What do you think the sun is reflecting on for 20 minutes?  You and other posters. Where/how do you conjure "reflection"? On what, the dew drops in the air?

UFO Jane herself says it's unlikely to be a blimp hovering for 20 minutes.  The other examples are occurring at sunset. We know that appears to refract at sunset. I perceive the glow to be fairly low to the horizon. For it to remain illuminated for 20 minutes at sunset my guess is it would have to be far away to remain in sunlight for that long. Some sort of back lot cloud or con trail seems plausible.

Unfortunately, the 20 minutes is anecdotal. We don't know if it kept that exact shape and position. The video is only a fraction of that.

The fact that there is a "shadow" underneath said object shows that it is solid and symmetric. And I'm not sure about a blimp because there seems to be no windows visible. Maybe windows would be too hard to discern at that distance but, I have my doubts.

Shadow underneath? So where's the light source?
Comment icon #77 Posted by Earl.Of.Trumps 5 years ago
It's about 93,000,000 miles away

LOL... And below the horizon. You say there is a shadow underneath the object; cast in the direction of the light source. Yeah...nah.
