Case File Status: Insufficient Evidence / No contact with witness
The following case was submitted to The Black Vault / TBV Investigations on January 26, 2018. It was assigned to team member Christopher Connelly for investigation.
UFO seen over Central Texas. This is a stop motion video I made by taking several long exposure photos of the sky and stitching them together in order. My camera isn’t good enough in low light to capture a video, so this is the best I could do.
We saw it for 6 nights in a row, same location in the sky but moved slightly up each night. The lights were actually flashing a few different ways. Sometimes they would blink, sometimes they strobes, sometimes very bright, sometimes dim, etc.
No real pattern that I could see.
Same time each night adding about 20 minutes each night.
Checked every resource I know of to cross reference with satellite sightings and space station orbits and it didn’t match any.
It may have appeared more, but we got several days of cloud cover after that. Once the sky was clear again, we saw nothing. This was about August 5th, 2017.

In this short video you are faced with the night sky, that takes the eyes a while to adjust to.
Once adjusted you are able to witness a small flashing light that pans across the line of sight in the video. No color changes noted. Direction is linear, with no changes. No sound can be heard in the video.
Unfortunately, I attempted to reach out to the original witness multiple times, through multiple outlets but with no return emails or messages.
With the evidence provided, I believe that the object in the video may be a satellite, based on the way that it moves and that directional pattern that it uses.
As stated in the analysis, there were no other pieces of evidence accompanying the video, such as sound or a witness statement.
Without additional contact with the witness, or an exact date (as it is noted the witness stated it was “about” August 5th, there is no way to cross reference satellite data or other information that may help identify the object.
