Footage uploaded on January 3rd shows three anomalous lights hovering in a triangular formation.
The clip, which was filmed over Houston a few seconds after midnight on New Year's Day, was uploaded by YouTube user Stephanie Westerfield who wrote - "not sure what these lights are."
In the video, fireworks can be heard going off in the background - no doubt in celebration of the turn of the decade - and a young boy can also be heard asking "what are those ?"
The three lights that make up the triangle appear to remain stationary throughout the clip.
Since appearing online, the footage has been picked up by numerous news sites and UFO channels.
Some users have speculated that the video shows a single aircraft hovering over the area, while others have suggested that the three lights could be drones or Chinese lanterns.
As things stand however, no definitive explanation for the sighting has been found.
