UFO’s in central Texas (Hill County)? or something explainable!

Posted by dandare on January 22, 2008

An article caught my eye, whilst trawling the internet for more ufo information, and i’m not sure what to make of it.

It comes from the KXXV-TV news channel entitled “UFO sighting in hill country” (posted january 21st,2008). There is also a link (at the top) to a video (date on the video, january 19th,2008).

The guy who took the video mentioned that “he’s recorded nearly a hour and half of lights fluttering the sky. At first they appeared out of thin air, changing size, color and even positions” (extract from article).

“He also states, that he saw the same thing a week before…. The news channel therefore talked to the sheriff’s department, and they confirmed that they also saw the lights, and were not sure what they were either. They are to look into this.

Nellis UFO video filmed at Nellis test range, Nevada 1994

Posted by dandare on January 21, 2008

An unnamed source aquired a video, which is worth watching; it was aired on a programme called Hard Copy in 1995 (but the video dates too november 1994).

It was filmed by tracking cameras, attached to ground based targeting radars; it has tracking data on the video, as well as a timestamp, giving acceleration and other details The video lasts 5 minutes. 

Sources that discuss this video are:

MUFON visits Dublin, to talk to Stephenville UFO witnesses

Posted by dandare on January 20, 2008


MUFON arrived saturday 18th, 2008 to talk to witnesses of the Stephenville UFO sighting which occurred on january 8th. There are conflicting reports as to how many witnesses there were, from about 50 to 200 witnesses (i would suspect it was nearer to 50), to fill out questionaires and to talk about what they saw to MUFON. The hall at Dublin was full, with about 500 people, and the ever present tv cameras, and journalists. 


It seems the UFO sightings, took place from 6.15pm (january 8th,2008) until around 4.30am the next day (january 9th,2008).

There are several good news articles that i would like to draw your attention too;

Star-Telegram.com has a good article “UFO investigators land in Dublin to quiz locals” (20th january 2008).  

It mentions “Before talking to investigators, witnesses filled out forms that included questions about the object’s direction, distance and flying behavior. They were asked to sketch what they saw. Then they sat down to be interviewed by MUFON investigators for about 15 minutes each” (extract from article). It also says that MUFON will take, from a few months, up to a year, before a report will be made available.

From the same media “Maybe it came from the dog star” (posted 20th january,2008); this talks mainly about a photo (taken on a cell phone), on front of the news story (star-telegram), on friday…..and it was a sun dog; 2 scientists say it is not related to the incident. This is in relation to….. “Truck driver Sean Kiel is the center of attention in downtown Dublin on Saturday. He took a photo of a strange object in the sky Jan. 8 on Interstate 20 near Cisco” (extract from article).

 cbs11tv.com “Mutual UFO Network comes to Stephenville” (posted 19th january,2008) Short article.

There are a couple of videos from dallas news worth having a look at:

http://www.dallasnews.com/video/index.html?nvid=210042 about MUFON at Dublin

And witness accounts at ….http://www.dallasnews.com/video/dallasnews/dmnphoto/index.html?nvid=210036

The transcripts to the Larry King show on friday 18th january 2008 can be found here .

Any more updates i will relay on UFO Online……. Thanks for visiting.

Also if you were expecting to see UFO Updates (which is usually put online ever week, after the Stephenville ufo sighting research, i have run out of time to cover other areas such as this…. it will be available to read soon…. so please bare with me).

Texas UFO sighting Update

Posted by dandare on January 18, 2008

ufo online

Following on from yesterday’s blog post here it seems we have, from the news articles/videos (not extremely reliable, but all i have):

An initial sighting on the 8th january at 6.15pm; it seems this happened over a period of 2 days? Government/military say commercial planes reflecting light, the cause?

It was moving fast (a pilot gave an estimated speed of 3000 mph), so unlikely lanterns, ect.

There were 40+ witnesses

Military deny that it was chased by jets (as some report seeing?).

So therefore, it gives us alot of questions, without any real answers yet? I hope MUFON, who arrive on saturday (will be taking statements from witnesses from 1pm) will be able to fill in the gaps for us all.


There are different reports of this UFO (is it shape shifting?)…. the witnesses could be therefore seeing the same thing, but in a different form (obviously, just speculation here); or could it be something else?

Could they really be seeing something explained….. or an IFO (Identified Flying Object?)

Checks on NASA’s (recent debris) database site, reveals that no man made space debris was re-entering around the dates mentioned.

Most report seeing a large UFO(similarities to Guernsey UFO sighting,as in size?, In the channel islands, posssibly? See my link to this sighting here and here ).

Larry King live on friday will be interviewing MUFON investigators, and this will be worth watching (i hope).

Any more updates will be posted on this blog site…..


Just to add…. Stephenville Empire Tribune articles (archive)

http://www.empiretribune.com/articles/2008/01/11/news/news01.txt (11th january)

http://www.empiretribune.com/articles/2008/01/13/news/news01.txt (13th january)

http://www.empiretribune.com/articles/2008/01/14/news/news01.txt (14th january)

For more interesting information.

Also man claiming to have seen similar over Lake Travis (not sure about this.. By MY Fox Kansas city- posted 17th january)….  I would question this photograph, as he says he did not see anything unusual in the sky at the time he took the photo?? this could be absolutely anything, i’m afraid.

Also just seen…. Pilot says he can explain Stephenville UFO sighting (updated 17th january)… its flares??

The best thing too do here, is to keep an open mind, although we will be inundated by quite alot of mindless rubbish, i shouldn’t wonder.

UPDATE : 18th january,2008
For map of some of the sightings please see link below (tried to be as accurrate as possible).

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.

Ufo Update

Posted by dandare on January 13, 2008

Welcome to this weeks Update..


The first article to catch my eye (not sure what the other one was doing) was “UFO allegedly splashed down in Kazakhstan ” (posted 8th january 2008). The event was on the 5th january 2008, and the witness was from the local police, who saw “a shining flying object falling into the river” (extract from article). Divers searched the area, but found nothing.

This is old news, but i thought i’d just sneek it in here, “Father of sci-fi rekindles alien debate” (december 17th,2007; ABC news).

We are back to the headlines of the green men variety again; “At last, the truth about little green men ” (posted 7th january 2008; telegragh.co.uk ). It mentions that we might learn much about what really happened over the Rendlesham Forest incident…. but as i have said before, this is already out and available on the MOD site for all to see. See Here for the MOD files. There is also a suffolk police file available here .

BlueRidgeNow.com (posted 11th january 2008) states “Include me with UFO believers“. 

In shieldsgazette.com (posted 9th january 2008) another mature article can be read at “why is Sunderland a UFO hotspot“…. as far as i was concerned, i didn’t know it was? It covers the same old “stuff” on ufos..sorry unimpressed.


Wired.com covers “Lake Erie UFOs are Stars on You Tube” (posted 11th january 2008); it mentions “Waves of UFO sightings over the waters of Lake Erie are earning the great lake a reputation as a UFO hot spot. But the lake’s new popularity may have more to do with a string of popular videos on YouTube than sightings of little green men” (extract from article). A telling comment, at the end of this article, which is true of alot of sightings says:

“”The problem is anyone can post anything and call it a UFO, a ghost, but there’s no filter,” he says. “You don’t know if that person has a history of hoaxes or mental illness. What happens is a real case is drowned out by a sea of hoaxes, mistakes or misidentifications”” (extract from article). I’m afraid to some extent that is true, although alot of witnesses generally believe, what they see is a UFO, but with a little investigation, this ufo (quite alot of the time) changes into an IFO.

The heraldtribune.com has an interesting article entitled “The Limits of Liberalism?” (posted 11th january,2008); it also has a good article “Everything old is old again” (posted 10th january,2008), in which it talks about the MOD releasing ufo files… It basically is saying that journalists fail to realise that alot of the information, for the well known cases, like rendlesham forest, are already available to read (see earlier telegragh article, above, for a typical example of this).

tcpalm.com has “Dom Armentano: Intelligent extraterrestrial life: The other inconvenient truth?” (posted 8th january,2008).

stockportexpress.com reports on “Did you spot any out of this world visitors?” (posted 9th january,2008)… again it seems, that they were chinese lanterns, especially as this was reported on new years day (and the descriptions given for them). One witness was so adament that they were ufos that he said

“They were moving across and not up, and if they were lanterns I’d have thought they’d be moving upwards,” he said. “And they were definitely round.” (extract from article). I’m afraid he’s wrong on that one?

Website of the week:

 http://www.ufomystic.com/index.php A great website, full of interesting information..

Quote of the week:

The journalists seem to be using the phrase “Little green men” like there is no tommorrow; a term i particularly dislike; i have a feeling it will not go out of fashion any time soon.

This is the new look Update; do you prefer this format?  (although i will be doing a couple more articles, about the origins of some more photos soon, anyway).

Flying light formation revives UFO Mystery

Posted by dandare on January 11, 2008

uk and part of europe

Thisisgloucestershire mentions “Flying light formation revives UFO Mystery” (posted 10th january 2008)…. in which were seen

“……..10 or 11 bright red lights, which seemed to be flying in formation, were seen on new years eve around midnight” (extract from article).

I’m not quite sure if this article actually means, just gone new years eve, or just before new years day?  Again the witness mentions he had not been drinking, as he is teatotal (nothing wrong in that, but it follows the familiar pattern of these types of reports), and then mentions they turned from red to white in colour. Another witness mentions yellow to white lights; in both sightings they were in a row.

They could be unexplained? but i feel it is unlikely…. what do you think? i suspect those old friends sky/chinese lanterns? Also bearing in mind it was new years eve, all sorts of things are sent into the sky at that time of night. I’m afraid, not much can be analysed from this, and it does not revive a ufo mystery.

Southampton UFO group (UK) is no more

Posted by dandare on January 9, 2008

The Southampton UFO group, which has been in existance for almost 20 years (i believe 17 years to be precise) has decided to quit. see “UFO club calls it a day” (posted 8th january 2008).

This is a shame (and i feel saddened by this), as it seems like the UK ufo groups, are dissappearing quickly, but i feel that the internet is part of the reason why this is happening.
