Stephenville, Texas - A UFO Flap in the Making

January 10, 2008 - The Stephenville Empire-Tribune reports that two days earlier, four local residents saw strange lights in the sky, a UFO they refer to as a ship. One is a pilot. They also report the "ship" was pursued by fighter jets.

January 11, 2008 - The same paper, from the same staff writer, reports that more people are reporting seeing the strange object or lights, including a constable and an ex-Air Force navigational specialist. A local naval reserve officer believes he can solve what is now a full-blown mystery.

January 13, 2008 - A new report states that MUFON investigators will be arriving to interview witnesses and talk about the sightings. The naval reserve officer believes the sighting was a misidentification of an aircraft under certain lighting conditions.

January 14, 2008 - A local UFO eyewitness, enthusiast, and lecturer does an interview on a paranormal radio show about his claim to have sighted the January 8 UFO. Meanwhile, CNN has picked up the story and is bringing it to millions of readers. The story has no discussion of aliens, outer space, or anything fringe or kooky.

I'm going to try and continue to see what develops here, and if or when other aspects of UFOdom become involved, or what the media does with this.

My husband's brother is a police officer in Stephenville and called him up just to ask him: How do you set speed traps for UFOs?

Any suggestions?

Its a load of bull, there may be other life forms, but no way would anything be that obvious if they are supposedly "more advanced than us. I don't doubt other life, the fact is thats not it. It was probably a company blimp or some remote control thing, maybe a pice of debris, all I'm sure of is that it was not a 'UFO' and certainly not the end of the world as some people are saying.

It was probably an airplane. Just because someone lives in the same town doesn't mean they won't exagerate or make some things up. I know I've been in situations like that where your heart gets pumping, ya it's cool, but you just got to give it up after a while, and thats what will happen just like all the other sightings!!
