|Large Orbs of Light over Keller/Southlake on 10/19/2007
On 10/19/2007 my husband, and I were sitting on the back patio at our home when to the east of us I first noticed what appeared to be a very large meteorite entering the atmosphere, (from west to east) it had a very long, wide tail behind it. This lasted 5 seconds or so before it disappeared.
Our daughter had joined us on the patio and about 20 minutes later I noticed in the approximate same spot in the sky as I had seen the meteorite 3 very bright large lights just stationary in the sky, in a shape of an arch. One on top, one below it but slight out to the right and then a 3rd beneath it, and slightly into the left. Suddenly a 4th light appeared parallel to the second but much farther to the left of the others. Then a 5th appeared, and then the 1st one disappeared and then reappeared.
The lights were not fading in or fading out they just appeared. There were stationary the entire time.
My husband went in to get his camera and took a picture of three of the lights, but the shutter speed was not correct and the picture did not come out very good. Our daughter grabbed her digital camera and came back out with the video feature turned on. She captured a few seconds of it, but unfortunately handed me the camera and I not realizing she had it on video tape, held it down to my side, when she told me she was videotaping and I got it back up facing the direction the lights were in they had all disappeared.
The lights were over the Keller/Southlake direction looking toward the airport. There were several plans visible in the sky, and these lights were 100's of times larger than planes. We snaped a picture of a plane that was in the sky, slightly further away and to the south east of us, the difference in size is incredible.
We watched the news last night and this morning thinking that several people would have reported seeing this, but have heard nothing.
I would expect that pilots flying in and out of DFW would have reported this sight to the Tower.
I looked at the picture my husband took today and was surprised at what I saw. I was expecting to see three blurry blots of light, but instead all three look like a child had scribbled in the night sky using lights. The video my daughter took clearly shows two of the lights or orbs.
((NUFORC Note: No time for the sighting indicated by witness. PD))
