Similar UFO Sightings Cause a Stir in NYC and Texas

UFO Sightings Daytime: New York and Nighttime: El Paso

Two interesting UFO sightings caused quite a stir in Manhattan, New York and El Paso, Texas in the fall of 2011. The significance of these two sightings is that they appear quite similar even though one occurred in daytime and the other at night.

Mystery UFO Sightings in New York

On Wednesday, October 13, 2011, crowds stood in awe as they watched mysterious UFOs hovering for several hours in the New York sky. Many witnesses said at first they thought they were seeing balloons, however, once they realized the "balloons" weren't drifting away in the wind, they knew there must be some other explanation. WCBS television was able to capture the UFO video. Unfortunately, the NY Police Department said they received calls although they were not planning on investigating....even though the UFOs hovered there for two hours. A Fox 5 NY newscaster reported she checked with FAA officials and was told nothing showed up on radar at all.

Are Mystery Lights in El Paso, Texas Actually UFOs?

Two days later on Friday, October 15, 2011, witnesses also saw mysterious lights in El Paso, Texas. At first these objects appeared to be meteors until they too stopped suddenly and hovered in the night sky. Airport officials claimed there was an air show in the vicinity, however, according to the Amigo Airsho hosting the event, it was actually scheduled for the following day, October 16 and 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. No night shows were planned so it doesn't make sense that airplanes would practice for a daytime show in the pitch black of night.

Is UFO Video Actually Result of Air Show?

Very interesting videos indeed! I've seen lots of balloons released into the sky and never witnessed anything similar to the UFO occurrence in New York. As far as the Amigo Airsho, the Golden Knights paratroopers claim that their pyro-night show is responsible for the stir in El Paso. So I began researching the Golden Knight demonstrations. After reviewing the Golden Knight air show video, it doesn’t appear that the lights over El Paso are one and the same. Do you see any similarities to the El Paso mystery lights?

So in the end, the news reporters seem to either be as dazed as witnesses or sort of laugh off the whole sighting. Authorities don't seem too concerned about looking into what these objects are or when they do address the issue, they give very questionable explanations. All the rest of us, well, we're just left sort of wondering what is going on in our skies. Guess its business as usual for UFO sightings in the U.S. What do you think?

What do you think was in the skies of El Paso, Texas?

      I saw a signing red ball like machine while watching Haleys Comet. The ball zoomed up quite quickly towards the comet this surprised me.

      I love when a big fuss can be made out of something that might be so easily explained away if only all the properties of what it was - or is - were present. Don't worry, I am no knocking your hub. You are a good writer. There are remote flying devices used nowadays and often referred in the media as being drones and remote viewing devices flown over areas to monitor anything from traffic to weather to bad guys with weapons or whatever. People will always speculate on what they don't understand until they have it explained to them.

      I saw a TV program on a flower from South America that comes into bloom for only one night in its entire life, then it dies the following morning. Despite my incredulity, I was very impressed by it. Imagine how hard it is to study and identify that beautiful sight, given how rare it's appearance is. It is in our nature to wonder about things until we finally see them up close and personal.

      This is just my take on the subject of what constitutes mysterious. Cheers!

      It's true the government doesn't seem concerned. A few years ago I remember reading there were pilots flying in Mexico, and they reported that they could see unidentified objects flying when looking through their window, but when they checked their radar screens, there was nothing there. I guess its possible these objects have radar cloaking capability? Whether they're alien technology or military experiments, who knows? UFO doesn't necessarily mean space aliens :) Thanks OpinionDuck.

      The problem is why do we have to speculate.

      NYC has three airports within 10 miles of each other.

      If it didn't show up on their radar than why is the government concerned.

      I didn't followup on the story, I just heard the headline.
