(KPRC) — Pictures posted on Twitter earlier this week show something floating through the skies over the Houston area.
In one, a circular thing appears to hover. In another, it appears in front of impressive clouds. In yet another picture, the circle appears to stand on its side with an impressive light show.
You can find a lot of things flying through the halls of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, but a real answer to just what appears in these Twitter pictures is a mystery.
"I think the trick in UFOs is figuring out what else they could be. It's easy to say that could be the aliens," said Dr. Carolyn Sumners, the vice president for astronomy at the museum.
Sumners investigates and is writing a show about UFOs.
"If it's a real object and it looks like it is. The more people who see it in different directions, the more likely we are to figure out where it is, what it is and see if we can explain it."
There was also bad weather Monday night? She stated that could have something to do with everything people captured on their phones.
Take a look at the video above and you decide.
