Observers think UFOs hovered above the Eagle Ford Shale

Strange things are afoot in the South Texas oil patch and in the sky above...cellphone video, taken by worker Xavier Garza, shows a reddish-orange orb in the northern sky.

Witnesses say the camera didn't pick up a dozen more lights that appeared and reappeared several times, typically hovering in formation. It happened two nights in a row.

And last week, a photo surfaced on the website of the Mutual UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) Network, a volunteer group that investigates UFO claims, purportedly taken at a well site in the same stretch of the Eagle Ford.

Allegedly taken from a security camera, it appears to show a large saucer-like object, with an array of four lights, hovering over the caliche pad of a La Salle County well site. Other odd orbs can be seen in the background.

“This was 12, 13, 14 lights, that were all spread out, flying all over the sky. And when they moved, it was at unbelievable speed, from horizon to horizon and back.”

Cantu was on a work break when he saw the lights. He yelled out to co-workers, who joined him watching the lights, which put on a 3-minute show, bouncing around the heavens like a celestial pinball machine.

The lights vanished for 25 minutes, then returned for another 3-minute show.

Then delivery trucks, which had been waiting down the road for their turn to approach the site, pulled up.

“The truck drivers were all, 'Did you guys see those lights up there?'” Cantu said. “So it wasn't just us.”

The next night, Garza had his phone camera ready to go. But because of the blinding glare from the floodlights, he only caught a few seconds of a single orange sphere. This time, however, there were nearly 20 witnesses.

I would be curious to hear from Texas FReepers on this. Is it all a big joke there?

I think we should consult with Bo Bo not with Texans.

“The witness wrote to MUFON that the company that owns the site began noticing crude oil was being siphoned from onsite tanks nightly. A security camera system was installed to catch the thieves in the act and gather information that could be forwarded to the Sheriff’s Department.
The company didn’t catch thieves, but it may have caught a UFO instead, at least on film — maybe.
Most UFO landings, Stansburge said, happen for a reason. Ninety percent are near bodies of water, which leads UFO observers to believe aliens need water. The sudden appearance over one of the hottest oil plays in the nation, he suspects, may mean the aliens stopped in to gas up.”

Rumor has it that he has once again been kidnapped by a gay Bigfoot and taken by way of a UFO to a secret location.

I witnessed something similar while working at Ft. Hood. A friend and I were leaving Lake Belton and saw about a dozen orange orbs. They hovered, split and rejoined, accelerated at an impossible rate to the horizon, then reappeared. We watched them for about 30 minutes. We went to a restricted area on the base the next morning and told the occupant about it. He said we were crazy and the military had nothing like that. We hadn’t even started drinking yet. Never saw it again in six months I was there.

“again been kidnapped by a gay Bigfoot “

Now why would Michelle-My-Belle Obama do that?

It would be hilarious if the power source that eventually enabled interstellar flight ended up to be petroleum based.

Although a contractor who does work for us & hunts near Cotulla a lot has told us ufo stories, this looks like a flatbed trailer to me. Unless the aliens are less than a foot or so tall.

Why would an advanced civilization that could travel light years to reach us fear us and hide from us? Stupid, stupid, stupid. When Cortez hit Central America, they all hid in the woods so the Inca’s and Aztecs would not see them. Columbus did the same, they hid their boats and dressed up like trees so the native americans would not see them.

The advanced civilization is visiting a fallen world where Satan is kept and will be released for a little while. IMHO

They don’t need oil. They’re just trying to warn us about the dangers of fracking.

Fracking contaminates the water supply. If humans drink the contaminated water, it causes severe digestion problems (aliens are unable to properly digest human beings that have been contaminated by fracking water).

To avoid violent encounters that might result in contamination.

That’s it, I’m buying some of those. Stay tuned for an outbreak of UFO’s over Dallas.

Because if they revealed themselves, they would likely become involved in our politics and issues. Imagine the social unrest among those whose ideology and ethos cannot include the existence of extra-terrestrials. The middle east cannot even handle cartoons. Imagine a spaceship landing.

Do you make yourself known to the insects and creatures of the forest when you go hunting or gathering firewood? They likely see us the same as we see lower-life forms and our existence and our affairs are likely beneath them.
