A young witness and his uncle were stargazing in Haslet, Texas, when they spotted a very bright object that "appeared out of nowhere" on the evening of December 13, 2012.

The object had no tail, as would a shooting star. It flew in a northeast direction, stopped and then hovered, according to a report submitted to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

The eleven year old boy began to take photos of the object with his iPhone as the object hovered.

The UFO again began to move, changing direction and heading "backwards."  It stopped and hovered for about a minute before it "shot off" leaving a "U"shaped cloud, according to the boy's father, who said the experience left his son feeling "terrified."

The father reviewed the photos that his son took of the mysterious object and concluded that a meteorite would have travelled to fast to have allowed time for several photographs to be taken of it.

Original (unedited) witness report:

December 13, 2012, 10:15 p.m., Haslet, TX - Strange object in sky. Case 44548.

My son and his uncle was outside watching shooting stars. All if the sudden this object appeared out of no where with no tail (like a shooting star should have) and was quite brighter than anything they had seen. It went in a sharp NE direction stopped and hovered at this point my son began to take pictures with his iPhone. The object changed direction backwards. Then it hovered again for aprox 1 minute and the shot off this time leaving a u shaped cloud. My son terrified called me at work. He is 11. I told him to send me the pictured thinking it was a shooting star and I could let him know it was okay. After seeing the pictures and realizing there was no way he could have got so many pictures of a moving star I realized it may be something else. The cloud of smoke left clearly looks like it was ingaging back into space. I am (was) a non believer but these photos are sure strange.
