A woman in Texas spotted something far more fantastic than mere fireworks this past New Year's Eve when she noticed an eerie triangular formation of lights hovering in the sky. Stephanie Westerfield reportedly filmed the weird scene shortly after midnight on January 1st in the city of Jersey Village. A few days later, she posted the footage to her YouTube account and it has since been picked up by a number of channels devoted to puzzling aerial anomalies.
In Westerfield's video, three lights can be seen in the sky forming a fairly sizeable triangular shape as the sound of fireworks exploding fills the air. A young boy can be heard asking "what are those," while the witnesses watch the weird glowing orbs and presumably wonder the same thing themselves. It would certainly seem that the lights were not fireworks, since they just hover in the sky and barely move, much less burst into a colorful display.
As one can imagine, observers online have suggested that the lights could have constituted some kind of alien craft, while others have argued that they may have been the long-rumored military spy plane the TR-38. More prosaic possibilities include Chinese lanterns that were released at midnight to celebrate the New Year, which would explain how they wound up where they were in the sky at that specific time, or perhaps even a drone being used to get a unique perspective on the fiery festivities.
