The group watched the object until it was out of sight.

“It traveled straight the whole time.”

Texas STAR Team Investigator Charles Stansburge investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown.

“According to the witnesses, the object was a round, clear orb moving across the sky heading north,” Stansburge stated in his report.“The object had no color – just clear with an outline. The size was about two-to-three feet in diameter and about 500-to-750 feet in altitude at 30 degrees and about 250 yards away from them.The weather was 82 degrees F with a south wind at 8.1 mph and clear.”

The object was seen for about two minutes and was traveling in a north-northeast direction.

Galveston is a coastal city located on Galveston Island and Pelican Island in Texas, population 47,762. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

    My first thought is birds. I’ve seen a formation of birds fly incredibly precise patterns you would never believe had you not seen it with your own eyes. I’m not saying that’s what it is, but I would consider that before moving to the ET hypothesis.

    My first thought was “is there a volcano nearby” but then I read about the diameter and changed my thought on the matter. I still believe this is a smoke ring, a very common occurring phenomenon. Look up smoke ring on Wikipedia or Google “volcano smoke ring” and see if this doesn’t provide a very plausible answer to the question. I would think an IR imager would indeed pick up a nice ring due to the heat encapsulated in such a ring.
