TEXAS CITY — While pretty certain they were part of a prank or hoax, officials still haven’t determined what created a series of red flickering globes in the sky over the city during the weekend. They might be getting some help.
A field investigator with a national UFO network said he’s opened up an investigation to try and determine what was hovering over the city’s Moses Lake on Saturday and Sunday.
The red hovering lights have been the talk of the town for days and prompted interest from UFO investigator Chuck Stansburge who handles field investigations in this area for the Mutual UFO Network or MUFON.
Stansburge said he is a retired cop who tracks down UFO sightings in a 14 county region along the Texas coast. The organization uses a website to track tips from across the globe, he said.
Stansburge said Texas records the second highest number of reported UFO sightings in the country. The number one state for reported UFO sightings to MUFON is California, he said.
According to the MUFON website database, there have been 50 UFO sightings in the state since Feb. 25, including the sightings during the weekend in Texas City.
