EDINBURG, Texas - Oct. 4, 2023 - PRLog -- A new book describes an astonishing UFO incident from 1966 that took place in deep South Texas, near the Mexican border, and has only recently been disclosed. The 124-page book titled Fire From the Sky: 1966 UFO Incident in Edinburg, Texas is available on as a paperback and as an eBook, at

Author Noe Torres, whose work has been featured on History Channel, Travel Channel, Coast to Coast AM, and others, was first contacted about this case in 2012 by eyewitness Jose J. Ponce. Ponce's dad was the deputy sheriff that was dispatched to the scene of the UFO encounter in 1966, but due to pressure from the military, his dad promised to never reveal what happened in his lifetime. It was only after Deputy Ponce passed away that his son decided to come forward with one of the most remarkable UFO cases ever recorded in the South Texas region.

As a crew of eight construction workers relaxed in their mobile home after a tough day of excavating caliche, their work camp was suddenly "invaded" by a large, illuminated UFO that came out of a cloud bank and hovered directly above their mobile home. The object kicked up storm-like conditions at the work site, and the men raced outside in terror, experiencing gale-force winds and a loud throbbing / humming sound.

In the chaos and confusion, one of the workers discharged his weapon at the hovering UFO, and what happened next is beyond belief. Shortly after, Deputy J. R. Milo Ponce was dispatched to assess what had happened, and he was later joined at the scene by his son, Jose J. Ponce, whose story of the incident formed the basis for this book.

After the story of this amazing encounter came out in 2012, the town where it happened -- Edinburg, Texas -- began having an annual commemoration. The Edinburg UFO Festival has, over the years, grown into one of the top UFO festivals in the world, having recently been rated the 3rd best by

Ponce. The book is available from the author's web site,, and also directly from as a paperback and as an eBook, at
