UFOs? Unidentified Floating Objects? “Angel Hair” anyone?!?!? Video at the link:
Thousands of North Texans are asking, “What are those long, silky strings floating in the air?” Turns out they’re the webs of spiders in their annual migration to better hunting grounds, and surprising a lot of people.
“I thought it was weird; I’d never seen it before,” said Myrna Olivas, who first noticed it driving in her car; then later as she dropped her son off at school. “It just landed on my head and it left again,” she said adding, “It’s just a big stripe of spider web. I couldn’t recognize it until I got it closer to me.”
The natural phenomenon was first noticed early Wednesday morning.
They’re called “ballooning” or “floating” webs made by young, migrating spiders. “There’s some that produce a ball like a balloon, and there’s some they call tent spiders because they create almost like a triangle,” according to Texas A&M Agrilife horticulturist Patrick Dickinson.
They were strung across North Texas in trees or on lamp posts, even on a surveillance camera atop Dallas City Hall. Car dealers washed them off their prize offerings.
Not everyone thought them merely a weird nuisance, according to Dickinson. “Some people did not know what it was and were scared to go outside of their homes. Other people thought when they saw them in the trees like you’re seeing here that there was something wrong with their trees.”

Three of the top cases are from … TEXAS!
The Science Review Board from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) recently released their top 10 cases from 2012. Here’s a quick summary of these cases:
Case 36765: 3 a.m., March 25, 2012; at a correctional facility near Cleburne, Texas
Two officers on duty at a correctional facility saw a triangular object to their south. It was a clear night and the moon was not out. The object flew over them very slowly, appearing to be going only about 5 mph.
Case 41918: 5:20 a.m., July 14, 2012; Highway 36 near the town of Milano, Texas, and a repeat event six months later near the same location
The two witnesses saw a pentagon-shaped, black object hovering over the highway ahead of them. At each apex of the pentagon were lights and a more intense light in the middle of the object. The lights at the corners were white and pulsated about once per second. As the witnesses drove under the object they could hear no sound coming from the craft above them.
Cases 37562, 37585 and 36704, April 17-19, 2012; Three separate triangle reports in the same region of Oklahoma and Texas
All three witnesses described a silent, triangular object that displayed white lights on the apex of the triangle and a ruby-colored light in the center of the triangle. There was not sufficient information in the movement of the object to establish that it was not potentially a drone or experimental aircraft.

Huge triangel low over Houston
This very typical witness account of an enormous triangle reminds us that the UFO phenomenon is constant and ongoing. There is no reason to doubt the witness. Unfortunately, there were no images made, and as the sighting took place at around three in the morning, there is also no corroboration.

Miles, 41, of San Antonio, said he recently flew to Port Aransas to spend the day walking the beach.
“My passenger took it on Sunday as we made our final approach,” he said.
But they never actually saw the object from the cockpit of their Cessna. His passenger was simply snapping photos of their landing and they never noticed the strange streak until they were flipping through the photos at a nearby restaurant.
The object only appeared in one of the photos.

UFO or Lens Flare in Google Street View? You Decide – ABC News. (Video at link)
Andrea Dove contacted ABC News affiliate KLTV in East Texas with an interesting tip. Dove was using Google Maps to get directions to visit her aunt in Jacksonville, Texas, when she spotted a UFO while using the Street View option.
Don’t believe it? Try it yourself by simply searching Jacksonville, Texas, and panning upward toward the sky in Street View to spot the reddish UFO near the clouds — although no one in Jacksonville has ever reported seeing one.
If you’re still looking for more evidence, try the same trick by searching for the Sky City Casino Hotel on 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo, N.M. The same object appears in the sky hovering over the street.
What do these two sites have in common? A McDonald’s.
Is it really the same UFO or simply a lens flare?

In the William Laxton Incident: Distortion In Images, the Caravaca Files applies the Theory of Distortion to a 1966 sighting that had even the USAF puzzled. William Laxton was driving to his job at Sheppard Air Force base in Texas early one morning when he was stopped by a UFO parked on the road, along with a uniformed “man” in a hat and uniform doing repairs on the craft. With the Theory of Distortion, the Caravaca Files point out that with the witness’s airbase experience, the man framed the sighting within in the context of a military aircraft, in other words seeing what his mind chose to show him.
