UFO Sighted in Texas

January 15, 2008

Stephenville, TX (AHN) - Residents of a Texas community found themselves stunned by a celestial scene involving what many believe was a UFO.
Eyewitness accounts told of a large, silent, object with flashing lights, with residents insisting that it was lower to the ground than an airplane.

"People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times," explained Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot. He insisted that the thing he saw, a mile long and half a mile wide, was "positively, absolutely nothing from these parts."

Local officials insisted that there had to be a logical explanation to the sighting -an argument that was trashed by residents who insisted that the object's behavior of changing light configurations was nothing like that of a plane. Residents from other towns also insisted on spotting the object over several weeks, and have given accounts that were similar to those being given by Stephenville citizens.

"You heard about bug bass or big buck in the area, but this is a different deal" said Ricky Sorrells, whose friends teased him when he came forward after others revealed they saw the object. "It feels good to hear that other people saw something, because that means I'm not crazy."

A supporting AP article reported that while a Joint Reserve Base Naval Air Station official confirmed that there were no plans deployed to that area during the night of Jan. 8, Major Karl Lewis insisted that the object must have been an illusion caused by airplane lights, which he described to glow much brighter during sunset.

"I'm 90 percent sure this was an airliner," said Maj. Lewis.

Texas is one of the states with the most reported UFO sightings, at about 200 per month. Other states are California and Colorado.
