April 17, 1897 – Aurora, Texas. An “airship” crashed on a farm outside of town; the being inside was reported to be deceased and buried in the town cemetery. The wreckage from the crash was disposed of in a nearby well. Today, the headstone has been removed.

November 2–3, 1957 – Levelland, Texas. Reported by dozens of people in the area, strange blue lights and rocket-like colors were seen in the sky. Another strange twist: multiple persons noted vehicle issues and disruptions while viewing the lights.

December 29, 1980 – near Dayton, Texas. Two women and a child reported a giant diamond-shaped object hovering at treetop level. Severe illness was experienced later that evening. Known as the Cash-Landrum Incident, it resulted in civil court proceedings.

September 18, 2019 – Richardson, Texas. People saw something metallic-like traveling east to west. The unique kind of craft was claimed to be “moving too fast to be a balloon.” It apparently made no sound and flew lower in the sky than airplanes in the area.

In 2020, the United States Department of Defense acknowledged a 2017 video from a US Navy pilot’s radar of an object flying erratically, with a “glowing aura.” Looking for more information or have your own sighting to report? MUFON® is the world’s oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation and research organization. Established in 1969, it’s an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 charitable corporation. Texas certainly is full of mysteries, both above and below its dirt!
