AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you glanced up at the sky on Saturday morning and swear you saw a UFO staring right back at you, you’re not alone.
Several eagle-eyed KXAN viewers contacted us after they spotted three mysterious white objects high in the sky above central Texas early on Saturday morning.
But don’t start planning for an alien invasion just yet – because these are not mysterious creatures from another world after all.
The Pentagon set up a new investigative unit to probe puzzling UFO sightings and incidents reportedly encountered by U.S. military personnel, officials confirmed Friday.
Officially assembled in early August, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, or UAPTF, will be steered by the Department of the Navy. Its formation follows increasing focus from Defense officials and Congress on unexplained flying objects spotted near military bases and restricted airspace.
Video footage has emerged recently of what one man calls a shape shifting unidentified flying object (UFO) in Abbotsford on July 29.
