If the pic is actually from the 24th and weather history states it was clear in Dallas at night, then is that smoke in the air? Visibility 10mi, light wind and no mention of fog.

I can almost guarantee you it's from the state fair.

I'd put my money on that also.

Didn't the fair end prior to the 24th?

Yes, i mentioned that. I wonder if it had to do with wrapping up stuff. But it could be some other entertainment in the area.

I don't get the haze if the 24th because the history shows clear skies. There may have been an hour of PC but that sky in the picture looks overcast if clouds.

I am a bit suspicious went nothing about an image is given. A more precise location, direction and time would be nice.

These are spot lights. There was 7-8 of em last Friday night for the Aurora project in downtown Dallas. Looked exactly like this. I was actually joking with one of my coworkers that if I didn't know any better, that'd be freaky as #. Then again, I probably don't know better.

Friday night, the 18th was overcast in Dallas. Maybe it was from the previous friday.

Dug around on the source link to reddit and the OP says it's Plano, around 10PM on the night of the 24th.

This is a quote from my friend in Plano that took the photos tonight:
"Symmetrical lights in the sky over my condo. Have another picture of them in a totally different shape. Watched them for about 30 seconds and then they disappeared. I'm not makin' claims, it was pretty interesting."
When I was trying to figure out what they were I ran across a similar photo that was on a UFO sighting report that was also in Dallas from October 18, 2013: This is what made me think it was actually weirder than just some random lights.


Here's a link to the above quote. quote

Landing lights for foggy nights, like the bat signal.

I am most likely to say that it is spotlights on the ground reflected in the clouds. If you look at picture number 1 you see that the lights form a 'W' from 10 spotlights.




Now when you look at picture number 2, the lights have moved in a different, but more 'tight', formation.



But if you compare it to picture number 1 you will find that the lights has moved almost mechanical if you imagine (I can't make an animation of the two pictures) that the spotlights move in pairs, like so:




This, to me at least, indicate that each pair of lights are set to rotate/move in a locked pattern.

The only problem with this theory is that I can't seem to find any picture with no beam of light from the ground. The answer could be that the beam is fading out like this:



or



and we are not able to see the beam in these pictures because of the poor quality.

Just a guess

OK, I can believe it now. Plano is farther north than Dallas and there was haze at the time.

whoa! THanks for the effort and the reply! Breaking them into pairs like that makes the spotlight machines seem more reasonable.
WIthout the beam visible or any real description of their 'behavior' though it's still up in the air for me...pun intended.

I would say low level light is blocking the appearance of beams.

Just like when low beam in a car is better than high beam in foggy conditions.

And yet there's extreme light in the examples above. I get what you're saying though. But hi-beams are bad in fog because the water molecules reflect the light so I imagine you'd actually see them better.

I've had a few dreams of sitting in my back yard talking to an alien about life.

Dude... probably wasn't a dream.

Look like spotlights. But there's no video to tell. Spotlights on clouds can look very trippy. And depending on how low the cloud base is and if it's misty/foggy, you won't exactly see the actual beams.

100% this. I took one look and saw spotlights. I've seen these before. Usually they are coming from a fair, a car lot or a rave. If there is no fine particulate matter in the air and your viewing angle is such that you are looking more up than out then they can look weird but its something on the ground, not in the sky.

BTW: Those pictures used for comparison have their contrast and gamma turned way up to make the beams from the ground more visible.

Thanks everyone for your feedback! I bet they're spotlights.

Best,
