Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Sigmund Freud said that, but he left out a key corollary statement: sometimes that cigar is a UFO. The “cigar shaped” UFO is one of the most iconic and widely reported varieties of unidentified aerial phenomena. It’s been a staple of UFO lore since the beginning.

They’re oblong and uniformly colored, but that’s about it. A cigar shaped UFO should, at the very least, have a fiery engine or exhaust port on the back. But no, they’re just long ovals.

The video shows a solid white, oblong object against what looks like the evening sky. It doesn’t move at all, and although the video is only a minute long, the witness wrote in a report to the website Texas UFOs that the incident lasted for much longer:To read more, click here.
