No one knows for sure if aliens exist, but there are plenty of sightings in San Antonio that bolster belief. According to the National UFO Reporting Center, there have been thousands of sightings in Texas — and 350+ sightings in SATX alone.
They say seeing is believing. Here are several eyewitness accounts of UFO sightings in San Antonio from the State Report Index:
Jan. 29, 2022 | “An amazingly large (or close to earth) object passed by, creating a white tail behind it. The entirety of it sparkled [...] like a huge shooting star, but was distinctive in that it moved in slow-motion, was incredibly large, and was white with a thick tail that slowly dissipated as it moved.”
June 24, 2015 | "[The UFO] was cigar shaped kind of like a sleek Zeppelin, silver, no lights, no visible insignia. [...] It flew into that dark cloud and that was it, its tomb, it never came out.”
Aug. 3, 1973 | “The sky was so unusually clear. Soon two very perfect cumulus clouds moved into our view right above us. really perfect clouds, like a Disney drawing. [...] As we were observing this beautiful sight, a huge, perfectly round very huge sphere started slowly inching its way out of the top side of the cloud on our left. it had a green glow to it like a radium numbered watch.”
Aug. 6, 1965 | “We spotted the glowing object about 15 feet above the densely planted mesquite, oak, and huisache trees. We heard branches break or a crackling sound as if some were being burned up on contact. [...] we heard an earthly sound that shook the ground and vibrated the concrete patio we were standing on.”

When one pop-up pops down, another pops... up.
Okay, we’ll work on that one. Suffice it to say, a new concept will move into Kineapple’s space at Pearl’s Food Hall after the smoothie + healthy eats spot closes on Sun., Sept. 25.
El Diente de Oro will serve dishes inspired by owners Orlando + Susana Aguirre’s visits to northern Mexico. The owners also operate Chilaquil, which currently neighbors the new spot. Expect asados de la abuela, carne asadas, and botana para picar.
The new concept will open for service in early October.
