I have had a very interesting e-mail from Fred Ewers ( who gave permission for his name to be added to this blog post).
” Dan, I am a semi-retired man 63 years of age and my wife and I recently (Nov 18,08) had a life changing experience. We saw an awesome display of large lights in the southern sky over Stephenville. I determined the lights to be approximately 8miles south at an altitude of approximately 5,000 ft.
The measurement from left to right was 1 to 2 miles in width. The lights had to be 50+ feet in diameter. First there were three very symmetrical horizontal lights, then a space was skipped and another three identical lights appeared to the west.
The first three went off and then came back on and then they all went off. Entire time lasp was maybe 15 seconds. The lights took on the appearance of port hole windows of a ship if you can imagine with bright light amber fluorescent lights inside. The lights were soft, no glare or prisms as car lights produce. Instantly on and off. Were not military flares as the military wants residents to believe.
We THINK we are anxious to find the origin of these lights.
Thank you. Fred Ewers Stephenville, Texas USA ”
In a later correspondence, Fred mentioned that:
” No one at this point in time has the ability to come up with an answer. Who or whatever is responsible will eventually show up and I believe it could change the world. I failed to mention that the exact same lights appeared last Thursday night at about the same time and place. Numerous educated drug free citizens saw them for 20+ seconds“.
My thanks to Fred for coming forward to report this.
Did you see these lights as well?
Would you like to describe what you saw? and where you were at the time, the size and shape of the UFOs, approximate height, and how long the sighting lasted for; or to even just add a comment here.
At this time, apart from MUFON and some other websites, it is quite hard to find other recent sightings around Stephenville, apart from Matt Collin’s recent sighting.
Whatever is going on, it would be nice to try and get a sensible answer, as too what everyone is seeing…. if the UFOs are military or otherwise.
It is evident however, that whatever it is, is not going away.
For those of you who think Fred might be making it all up, well all i can say is, that you have to take all you receive in all honesty, until proven otherwise, and i do.
I would also welcome any theories, as too what it is that Fred saw….
In the Empire Tribune it mentions activity from last Thursday also (which has only just come to my attention, after writing the above).
(posted 8th Febuary 2009) ” Unidentified freaky lights fill the sky ”
” County residents are once again seeing more than just stars in the night sky. Reports of large, orange lights started pouring into law enforcement Thursday night.
Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said the county dispatcher reported six calls between 7:33 and 7:44 p.m. coming in from various areas in the county. From Highway 108 to Highway 67 and out to CR 454, callers reported clusters of large orange or amber lights ” (extract from article).
The last paragraph mentions that “ United States Air Force Reserve Major Karl D. Lewis with the 301st Fighter Wing said people most likely saw a training exercise.
“F-16s from the 301st Fighter Wing/457th Fighter Squadron continue to train in the Brownwood Military Operating Area (MOA) during the day and night for training operations. We were conducting our normal training in the Brownwood MOA on February 5th,” Lewis said ” (extract from article).
Is this plausible….. do you believe this as an explanation?
