Mysterious lights were filmed in the sky above Houston on Wednesday night, flashing repeatedly in a strange formation before disappearing.
The video was posted by Kristan Mire who said she was ‘startled’ when she first spotted the lights and uploaded it to Facebook looking for an explanation.
In Mire’s video, the lights are seen flickering in the sky, spaced out in a triangle formation. As Mire watched, she said the lights disappeared.
‘Can anyone explain to me what this is?’ she wrote. ‘I walked outside my backyard and seen these lights. They literally just disappeared in front of my eyes!’

The Houston police department was contacted about reports of the lights but a representative was not available.
Some explanations offered for the mysterious lights included drones, fire lanterns, airplanes or military missiles.
Mire said that she lives near a local airport but dismissed all the theories saying that the lights did not move like drones or fire lanterns.

The video posted Wednesday showed the lights disappearing one by one
‘The huge red ones stayed stationary as the little lights which did not get picked up on camera zig zagged around and then would attach themselves to the bigger light and then that light would disappear,’ she claimed.
‘One by one, each huge red light collected the little lights and then the huge red light would disappear.’
‘I’ve seen Chinese lanterns in the sky and they keep on moving with the wind until you can’t see them anymore,’ she added.
‘Besides, these lights were way too bright and way too big and high in the sky.’
It came after a similar formation of lights was seen in a video in Miami Tuesday night which is now believed to be fake.
The video was posted by lawyer Rogan O’Handley but social media users were quick to point out that the video appeared edited.
