UFO spotted over Houston?

What appears in these Twitter pictures is a mystery

(CNN) – Pictures posted on Twitter earlier this week show something floating through the skies over the Houston area.

In one picture, a circular thing appears to hover. In another, it appears in front of impressive clouds. In yet another picture, the circle appears to stand on its side with an impressive light show.

You can find a lot of things flying through the halls of the Houston Museum of Natural Science. But a real answer to just what appears in these Twitter pictures is a mystery.

“I think the trick in UFO’s is figuring out what else they could be. It’s easy to say that could be the aliens.”

Dr. Carolyn Sumners is the vice president for astronomy at the museum. She investigates and is writing a show about UFOs.

“If it’s a real object and it looks like it is. The more people who see it in different directions, the more likely we are to figure out where it is, what it is and see if we can explain it.”

Remember all that bad weather we had Monday night? She says that could have something to do with everything people captured on their phones.

“All the way back to recorded history, there are going to be things we can’t explain. That’s what makes it exciting.”

For now, whatever you see here is a UFO, simply unidentified.
