A witness saw the red/orange lights over League City, Texas, on May 18, 2012. He managed to capture a minute of video on his phone.
Another witness wrote in to say:
Hey waited a couple days to see how many posts were made up at 9pm in Katy tx just south of I10 my mother in law took her dog out to the back and she looked up and saw a set of 3 lights going across the sky. They moved slow, no noise, reddish flicker, they moved east to west north west. She called me over and over again to come upside and finally I answered, went outside and saw them too. Here's the difference. As three crossed the sky, three more would appear, always from the same origination point.
As they crossed the sky they went out. This continued and my mother in law counted 41 total objects going across the sky. They all appeared in the same area and all went out in the same area on the other side. I only saw the last 12 or so but I saw how they moved and appeared/dissapepeared. I did not have time to get a camera but I got one and we both drive out in the direction to see if it would happen again. It didn't.
41 in total! And that's only what she saw.

UFO lights were seen from my backyard in League City, TX near Austin St. and 518 at about 8:30 or 9:00 PM on May 18, 2012. The oval-shaped lights were very pronounced and almost reddish in color. There were about 6-8 of them in a very odd pattern; none of them were at the same altitude or in a distinct formation. These objects were definitely close enough for us to hear noise if there had been any noise present (which there wasn't). They were about the same height as our neighborhood trees. When spotted, they were heading from the Southwest and moving North at a very slow, steady pace. None of the lights faded, flickered or changed color during this episode. Disappeared from our backyard view at approximately 9-9:05PM. Hope to find out what they are!!
And yet another saw the objects on both the 18th and 18th of May, 2012:
I live in League City near Meadow Bend I also saw them on 5/18/12 and 5/19/12 both around 9pm and got them both on video both times and really would like to know what it was.
What are the lights that witnesses in League City, other parts of the U.S. and even the world, are seeing? Are they balloons? Are they Chinese lanterns, released in celebration of a birthday, a wedding, or some other occasion? Or are they something 'other worldly'?
If anyone knows for certain, or has an idea as to what these lights are, please contact me. Let's solve this case, just as other witnesses helped solve the case of the Blue Lights Over Lubbock. -Sunny
