UFO seekers flock to mystery lights in Texas

Amateur UFO investigators are to descend on a farming community in Texas where dozens of people reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky.

A pilot, policeman and local business owners are among those who insist they have seen a large, silent object with bright lights flying low and fast over the town of Stephenville, 60 miles south west of Fort Worth.

Some said they saw fighter jets chasing the craft, which was mostly spotted on one evening - January 8.

The local airforce base said none of its planes were in the area last week.

A spokesman has suggested that the UFO might have been an illusion created by sunset falling on commercial airliners.

Unconvinced, local people insist the object was larger, quieter, faster and closer to the ground than an airplane.

Steve Allen, a pilot and freight company owner, said: "People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times."

Mr Allen described the object he saw as a mile long and half a mile wide.

"It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts," he said.

Looking through the telescopic sights of his rifle, Ricky Sorrells, a machinist, said he saw a flat and seamless metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a field.

Lee Roy Gaitan, an Erath County constable, said: "I didn't see a flying saucer and I don't know what it was, but it wasn't an airplane, and I've never seen anything like it."

He added: "I think it must be some kind of military craft - at least I hope it was."

The US airforce no longer investigates UFOs. Around 200 UFO sightings are reported each month, mostly in California, Colorado and Texas, according to the Mutual UFO Network, which plans to visit Stephenville next weekend.

Fourteen per cent of Americans polled last year said they have seen a UFO.

CNN, "Texans report seeing UFO", 14 January 2008.
    STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) -- In this farming community where nightfall usually brings clear, starry skies, residents are abuzz over reported sightings of what many believe is a UFO.
    Ricky Sorrells says he saw a flat, metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a pasture behind his Texas home.
    Several dozen people -- including a pilot, county constable and business owners -- say they have seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.


Metro, "'Mile-wide UFO' spotted by British airline pilot", 22 June 2007.
    One of the largest UFOs ever seen has been observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands.
    An official air-miss report on the incident several weeks ago appears in Pilot magazine.
    Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, 50, flying close to Alderney first spotted the object, described as "a cigar-shaped brilliant white light".
    As the plane got closer the captain viewed it through binoculars and said: "It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area.
    "It was 2,000ft up and stationary. I thought it was about 10 miles away, although I later realised it was approximately 40 miles from us. At first, I thought it was the size of a [Boeing] 737.
    "But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide."
    Continuing his approach to Guernsey, Bowyer then spied a "second identical object further to the west".
    He said: "It was exactly the same but looked smaller because it was further away. It was closer to Guernsey. I can't explain it. This was clearly visual for about nine minutes.
    The sightings were confirmed by passengers Kate and John Russell. John, 74, said: "I saw an orange light. It was like an elongated oval."
    The sightings were also confirmed by an unnamed pilot with the Blue Islands airline.
    The Civil Aviation Authority safety notice states that a Tri-Lander aircraft flying close to Alderney spotted the object.
    "Certain parts of the report have not been published. I cannot say why," said a senior CAA source.
    Earlier this year, however, the MOD declared its intentions to open its UFO files to the public.
