A Texas man routinely draws a crowd of onlookers to his home’s holiday light show spectacular — though half of the viewers expected to find aliens at their source.
Chris Hartgraves decked out his house with a massive Santa Claus, holiday music and, most importantly, 13,000 lights that stretch across the night sky and look eerily like UFOs hovering over Georgetown, a city 30 miles north of Austin.
Hundreds have flocked to see the spectacle, which Hartgraves puts on for free, but countless have shown up after tracking down what they thought was an alien species.
Hartgraves never expected his elaborate shows to confuse his neighbors, but admitted he’s heard the rumors.
The police were called to his house on at least one occasion this year. Hartgraves had to verify that he wasn’t intentionally pointing his flashing concert lights at aircraft that were flying ahead.
