Multi-colored ‘bubble’ UFO photographed in Texas

A man photographed what he asserts to be a UFO floating over Crystal Beach in southeast Texas on the evening of December 11, 2014.

The witness, Larry Nash, was reportedly working at a construction site in Crystal Beach when he noticed a bright object in the sky. His co-workers also reportedly observed the strange-looking UFO.

“It was round in shape to the naked eye. Like a giant bubble,” he explains to local media outlet the Beaumont Enterprise.

He also describes this “bubble” UFO as having a metallic appearance.

Nash photographed the object with his phone’s camera. He asserts that the color of the UFO changed back and forth between green and purple. But, as the Beaumont Enterprise reports, “Nash said his phone’s camera didn’t do the sighting justice, saying the images don’t accurately show the changing colors.”

The witnesses continued watching the UFO for approximately 45 minutes before they were instructed to resume their work.

Some have suggested that the object in Nash’s photos is an atmospheric phenomenon known as a sundog or parhelion, which appears in the sky when sunlight shines through ice crystals in the air. But Nash is unsure about what he an his co-workers observed. He has reportedly reached out to “alien enthusiasts” for help with identifying the unusual aerial object, but that approach hasn’t been successful.

  1. I seen this same exact “bubble” over Battle Creek, MI in early 2011 over an airbase. I first saw a jet swoop in low and fast when I was driving a couple co-workers home. When I dropped off the last guy I seen a massive “bubble” exactly like the one pictured being circled by 2 jets. My view was blocked after driving some more, but when I came to the overpass this thing was right there and it was massive. I was laughed at work until my boss overheard popped her head up to say she seen the same thing from a gas station right near me, and her took a photo from across town. It appeared multi color in the photo, but I never seen the multi color with the naked eye. At the time I had now phone that had a camera, but Id give anything I had cause people laugh you off when it comes to something like this. Hell I even offered a lie detector test to Michigan MUFON and only received a vague response TELLING me what I seen and nothing else. So kudos for the photo evidence. It goes a long way to the ones who have seen this “bubble” and been ridiculed to the point they have to defend there own sanity.
