A UFO watcher in Texas used a technique known as "skyfishing" over the weekend in the hopes of catching something "out of the ordinary." What he captured on camera has at least UFO enthusiasts and the local media talking.
According to the description of the video posted to YouTube, skyfishing involves filming an area with reference points in view for a length of time and reviewing the footage later.
On Saturday, Mario Vallejo recorded the sky for about an hour in San Antonio, according to KENS-TV.
After reviewing the footage, Vallejo believes a UFO comes into view.
What Vallejo describes as a UFO is seen at a distance below the first "o" in "Antonio" (left). Then it's zoomed in closer, seen below the "e" in "Texas" (right). (Image: YouTube video screenshot)
"To me it's an orb, and I've been seeing these things a lot around here. I really don't know what they are? Maybe a drone?" Vallejo told KENS.

Here's more about the event as described on YouTube:
At one point an Orb comes into view traveling South West..This orb was captured only for a couple of seconds..You will clearly see this U.F.O traveling low in altitude with some reference points such as tree top's.This time i manage to get some nice/steady Footage.You can clearly see this U.F.O traveling on its own power.....After reviewing the footage several times,Using filters such as 100XZOOM a U.F.O ORB can be observed...In my opinion this Orb is clearly not an aircraft or weather balloons/satellite.Orb was traveling low altitude and on its own power not blown by the wind...
Watch the footage (Note: the "UFO" enters from the right side of the screen around 0:50):
Although the UFO enthusiast seems to think he found something of interest, others question its legitimacy. Some commenters say the image was photoshopped. Others say it could be a drone or helicopter at a distance.
Other UFO sightings captured on camera have been attributed to insects flying in front of the lens as well.
But by definition, it at least fits the description of an unidentified flying object -- at least for now.
