Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 20, 2014

The Daily Mail reprints several photos of a strange circle of lights in the air over Houston. "Could a UFO have visited Texas this week?" the tabloid asks. "Several people have taken it to Twitter to post pictures showing a strange object floating through the Houston clouds during a storm last Monday. Some of the pictures show a bright oval object hovering. An unrelated picture shows a similar object through clouds. There are others, some showing what appears to be lights underneath the 'thing.'"

The photos are why I posted this. I've seen clearer images of a "crown of lights" UFO.

If it did I'm sure it avoided a certain band teachers house. You know with all of that GOP tinfoil around can't be good for UFO navigational equipment.

I have always wondered why UFOs need lights. Are there so many buzzing earth that they are crashing into each other?

They are signal lights much like Morris code for the mother ship.

The only UFO I ever say (and yes, I did see one) had no lights whatsoever. It was a very very large perfectly circular cloud-colored object that traveled in a straight path, stopped and remained in place for about 15 minutes and then proceeded elsewhere still moving in a straight direction.

Actually I was in rural Paraguay serving in the Peace Corps at the time. Not an iota of pollution was in the air.

Was there an uptick in used car sales after the appearance of the UFO?

I'd say it's a multi-copter.

Wow. Now that is some amazing technology. They travel light years to get here and they still need lights to communicate with each other?

Guess we don't have to worry too much about be being enslaved by them just yet then.

Here's some photos and a video, from an Australian outlet.

www.news.com.au

Huffington Post actually ran a poll on "The Texas UFO", and 30% of people said it was aliens. Another 20% said "It's probably nothing and everyone should calm down".

Well, that segment of the population wont be laughing when they get ANALLY PROBED!!!!

#24 He was banned for life for posting anti-Semitic blood libel from beforeitsnews.com

Something about Rabbis drinking the blood from infants newly circumcised -------.

I wondered if he thought it was supposed to be funny, or if he actually believed it. It's hard to tell, considering the amount of drugs the guy did.

"considering the amount of drugs the guy did."

How would you know that?

He smoked an ounce of pot a month and occasionally did LSD. I read that on a thread he wrote.

Dunno what is the problem.

If the visitors want to arrive without being noticed, land in Austin. They would not be out of place at all. Austin is what San Francisco claimed to be 50 years ago.

Actually it's a news ship from the Magellan Nebula come to cover the Michael Brown shooting. It had to shuffle over to Austin because Ferguson is not allowing helicopters or other low flying aircraft.
