Over a dozen drone-like UFOs witness over Austin, Texas

On October 15, 2010, at 4:30 pm, four construction workers in north-central Austin, Texas witnessed a thin drone-like craft heading West in a straight line at an estimated 3,000 feet in the air. The craft had a solid white sphere on both the left and right sides and was held together by a thin black rod in the middle. The craft swayed as it flew at a moderate speed. A few minutes later, another identical craft followed the same route. As the hour progressed, up to 14 followed in the same area of the sky. No more than two flew over at a time.

Toward the end of these sightings, a short rod-like object was sighted headed in the same direction, at the same height. It looked similar to a thread from a spider web.

Two military jets were seen at an estimated 30,000 feet above the objects heading in the same direction, but it was unclear if the jets were aware of the object's presence.

The last objects to be seen were small white dots that were spotted flying irregularly at a quick speed. They were much higher than the average commercial aircraft.

The sightings ended just after 17:30 PM, three separate types of UFOs witnessed.
