Fiery Red/orange Orbs Over San Marcos, TX - 05/11/2012

This is only a drawing of what the orbs might have looked like.
Depiction by SW.
Witnesses observe reddish orange orbs in the skies over San Marcos, Texas.

The first report was submitted to MUFON and the second report was emailed to me.  These reports are presented here, "as is", with no corrections. -SW

MUFON Case #38085
Location: San Marcos, Texas   
Date of Sighting: 05/11/2012
Shape: Orb/Sphere

3 red-orange glowing orbs moving in sky, hovered then moved again, from Wimberly Texas area toward Seguin Texas Area, Disappeared in sky directly above where I and others stood watching!    

I was preforming the duties of my job which require me to be outside patrolling at night. I happened to look up (as I like looking at the stars) and I saw 3 red-orange orbs that were then joined by a 4th of the same color and approximately the same size. At first I thought maybe they were stars or meteorites but they where first off moving and then also moving to slowly. I saw them in the sky down the street from where I was and the lights moved toward where I was but not "at" me. You could hear a slight whirring noise as they got closer but they were not planes. The lights almost resemble fire but not really. They were moving over the highway from the direction of Wimberly, Texas very slowly when they were almost over the complex I work at they stopped, hovered a moment and then continued moving slowly toward Seguin, Texas ( I think that is East to West...not really good at the cardinal directions haha). When they were above the complex I work at/ field next the the complex they just disappeared like they were never there. One of the lights did sort of fade come back and then disappear but the others were just gone and the noise with them! Although I am curious about what they were I dont really care...It was exciting. I ran to try to get my family but the lights were gone before they came out. Several people stopped at our complex squealing and yelling excitedly "Did you see that? Did you see that? What were they?" Another person said that people were stopped in the street in town trying to take videos and photos...he said they wouldnt come out on his own camera and my phone wasnt strong enough to pick them up as I have an older phone.


Report submitted to LITS
Location: Sam Marcos, Texas
Date of Sighting: 05/11/2012
Time of Sighting: 21:25
Duration of Sighting: 7 to 8 minutes
Shape: Orb/Sphere

My 15 year old daughter and I spotted 7 bright orange ball looking objects flying over San Marcos, Tx on 05/11/2012 at 9:25 PM.  We followed them around in our vehicle for appox. 7 to 8 minutes until they just disappeared into what seemed to be thin air.  There bright lights were also dimming and then brightening constantly. 

[Note: I emailed the witness back and asked a few questions about the sighting.  I have not received a response. -Sunny]



  1. Heads up! This sighting of orange lights seems to have popped up over the same period of days in other parts of Texas, too!

  2. I've been reading through all the MUFON reports going backwards and I've gotten to about mid June. Ive read through reports in the past but I've never noticed so many accounts of very similar encounters, namely these Orange orbs. I'm just fascinated...and now I'm watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind and I'm wondering if this is the source fueling these descriptions or if all of these people, from every corner of the country are truly seeing the same things. Has there been any progress in discovering what these fire like lights could be? Out of all the UFO accounts I've reviewed these for some reason have really got my attention. I live in a very small town in Southwest Washington and there was actually a similar report from the next town down the road, which is about five miles. So yes, I've been out looking for them every night... ;)

  3. Just saw one over northern San Antonio, diappeared into clouds
