The footage was shared on the YouTube Channel TexasUFOs Monday.
"April 28, 2018, sighting of a large, tall black structure flying across the sky over central Houston has been submitted to Mutual UFO Network [MUFON]. What could this UFO be? Plane or helicopter carrying something, hot air balloon… or a top-secret military craft or even aliens????" the YouTube description states. MUFON is a US nonprofit organization that investigates alleged UFO sightings.
A witness told the Daily Star that the figure "did not float away like a balloon."
"Object was moving north-northwest and was keeping the same elevation and didn't move like balloons," the witness noted.
"Much larger, vertical structure like a floating tower with a pointed tip at the top. Don't know what the hell that was. Freaking out a bit," the witness added.
"We see a very large and dark black craft moving across the sky at a steady rate of speed and going in a straight line," the YouTube video's presenter states.
"It looks to be taller than it is wide. For now the question remains, what could this be? Could it be a helicopter, or a plane, or a top secret military craft or spaceship?" the presenter adds.
Several YouTube users commented on the video with their theories on the nature of the object.
"Looks like a weather balloon… they are long, skinny… clearly moving with air currents. Might be coming down," one user wrote.
"Possibly an alien craft," another user commented.
