What follows are videos that peaked my interest, especially when considering how they represent and help tell the story of Amarillo, as obscure as they may be.

    In the most low key and undecided UFO sighting of all time, we find out that the thing glowing in the sky is probably just a weather balloon...or fragment...or satellite...or something "else." Also, you should always be sure to bring an extension cord and a stand.
