Texas has a long history of UFO sightings that goes way back to the late 1800's. It's probably because of the wide open skies or maybe it's the moonshine. Now, can some of these things be explained? Sure they can. However, some are just too weird to be written off as anything but unidentified flying objects.

Personally, I've never seen a UFO, but if you head to YouTube you'll find an endless list of people who have...or think that they have.

My favorite instance is that of Aurora, Texas in 1897. Several years before the Wright Brothers ever took flight, the story of a UFO that was reported from all over the state of Texas that day. In fact, 16 different stories about this supposed UFO made it into the Dallas Star Newspaper the next day. What could have been flying overhead in 1897?

To this day, we still have people posting videos of unexplained happenings over Texas. Let's take a look at some more recent accounts.
