UFO Over Fort Hood – Fact or Fiction?
Anyone got a number for Mulder and Scully?
Someone is claiming to have seen a UFO hovering over Fort Hood. KTRK-TV shared a photo the person took and reportedly submitted to the Mutual UFO Network. The picture quality isn't great (surprise, surprise), but when I first saw it, I immediately thought it looked like a silver balloon.
Turns out that's probably the case. KTRK did some digging and got in touch with Anthony Ortiz, who said his family had released a bundle of silver balloons as part of a vigil for his grandfather. He believes those were mistaken for a UFO.
Full disclosure - I'm a skeptic by nature. That said, I try to be open-minded, and I feel certain there are things happening in the world that haven't yet been explained. I just feel like I know a bundle of balloons when I see one.
This isn't the first time someone's reported seeing a UFO in Killeen, by the way. Texasufosightings.com lists both this recent sighting and one that may have been seen in April of 2018. ("[S]till verifying date" appears next to the listing.) In 2017, someone claimed to have seen a transparent triangle hovering over the city.
