Texas Ufo sighting gaining interest!

Posted by dandare on January 17, 2008

After i was alerted by Steve at ufospider.com  (thanks for that, as i missed this…. his link to this can be found here , with different videos), i’ve managed to find quite a few articles and videos to this event; it seems to be gathering momentum.

The basic facts, that i have so far found are:

Where: Stephenville, Texas

When : January 8th, 2008

Spotted by : Quite a few witnesses (i think initially by 30-40, but might be more now, as more have come forward?) prominent among them – pilot/business owners/county constable.

What: UFO (thats Unidentified Flying Object) – bright lights (some suggest like strobe lights) – low flying + fast (however, various other descriptions are given too); also some say it was chased by jets.

Officials respond by saying it was possibly a plane (due to light conditions, made it seem more extra ordinary); some witnesses suggest a military aircraft (unknown to the public,possibly). Also, it seems it has caught the attentions of the  Mutual UFO Network, which plans to go there and find out more..

Below are some (not all, by any means ) of the articles/posts/videos available… none (of the videos) that we know of, have the ufo in question, just their opinions on what they saw. 

Stephenville Empire Tribune “Possible UFO sighting” (posted january 10th,2008)    

cbc.ba mantions that “Multiple reports of ufo-like sightings in Texan town” (14th january,2008). 

nationalledger.com “Video, Texas UFO sighting: What was spotted over Stephenville?” (posted january 15th,2008)…. with video link near bottom of article (or see http://video.nbc5i.com/player/?id=205072  ).

SFgate.com reports that “Dozens in Texas Town report seeing UFO” (posted january 14th,2008).

ITN.co.uk for video at “UFO fever sweeps texan town” (updated january 15th,2008)

KLTV 7 “UFO sighting inErath County, Texas cause speculation, consternation” (posted 16th january,2008) with video link.

Postchronicle.com “Stephenville UFO sightings video: photo reward offered ” (posted january 16th, 2008).

nbcsandiego.com says “Texas town buzzes over Rumoured UFO sightings” (posted january 15th, 2008).

san angelo live mentions “UFO sightings in Stephenville, Texas, keep the city and nation abuzz” (posted 16th january, 2008) with a discussion with MUFON (with podcast included **** worth listening too). 

I will update on any further developments…. i believe MUFON will be there this saturday intervewing the witnesses? hopefully we can find out what is going on.

    Let’s hope this UFO sighting will become one that nobody can neglect. However, let me predict what will happen. The more media-attention this sighting will get, the more people will start looking upwards, and the more “yes, I saw it too” testimonials from a bunch of inexperienced Venus and airplane-watchers will emerge.

    Rather than focussing on the observed “huge flying object that is able to accelerate from hover-position to faster-than-jet speeds without making any sound”, the same debunking movement we’ve encountered so many times in the past will (again) focus on the perfectly explainable phenomena that will be observed in the coming days (I guarantee you) by a bunch of motivated ufo retards.

    So why do debunkers refuse to focus their attention on the original “inexplainable” sighting that is bound to trigger some “perfectly explainable” sightings? Exactly! They have no other options!

    I agree with you! however, we must try and keep an open mind when approaching this…. especially such a widely publicized sighting as this.
    I am sure MUFON will shed more light on this, and give us helpful information, when they start their interviews with witnesses on saturday.
    I am not a debunker, but believe all areas must be looked into! almost 90% of sightings have an explanation, but i think this one might be the exception… i say might, as we need to find out all the facts,ect.
    Yes for sure, we will get those silly reports, testimonies, but with it being so public this is to be expected…

    Well, there were an 2 objects in the western sky in Friendswwod Texas at 5pm or so and my nieghbor had seen it , too. One much larger than the other and moving faster than anything I have ever see.There wasn’t time to go get a camera.

    Hi Pete, and thanks for adding your experience here. My suggestion, is to report it to MUFON: they have a sighting report (see link) http://www.mufon.com/reportufo.htm
    Also if you are interested, there are local MUFON chapters for Texas at http://www.mufon.com/texas.html
    There is also http://www.nuforc.org/ which also has a form you can fill in online.
    Hope this helps….

    Great stuff! I’ve seen UFOs 3 times…

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    ALL life is an accident

    no other planets have life
    Earthlings are all alone

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe will
    apologize for all life

    it was all a BIG mistake
    something just went wrong on Earth

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    ignore UFO reports

    discredit all sightings
    claim all photos must be fakes

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe is
    sorry for life on Earth

    the rest of the Universe
    is properly without life

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    tell lies to the people

    of course about aliens
    they can’t handle the truth

    Ah, jets, jets. I always wondered why jets would chase these UFOs. Fascinating!
    I enjoy pondering UFOs and extraterrestrials – I’ve made a blog about it, too. If you want to check it out:
