New Witness to Stephenville Lights: Airplane passenger thought to themselves "that everyone will see this object as it enters the town"
You may know about the Phoenix Lights incident in Arizona, but did you know about the Stephenville Lights incident in Texas? The sightings are pretty similar, with the event in Texas happening years later.
In January 2008, many Texans watched a group of glowing reddish orange lights, which seemed to be part of a craft as large as a football field, slowly and silently fly overhead. The case was well documented, and it was later revealed that there was even radar evidence of it, and that the UFO was headed toward then President George Bush's Crawford Ranch, a no fly zone.
Although it's increasingly difficult to find information about the Stephenville Lights incident, and increasingly easy to accuse the government of covering it up!, we still learn new things about it every now and then. Case in point... a new witness to the mass UFO sighting has come forward! They submitted testimony to MUFON (case 115564):
I was on an American airlines flight from orange county to DFW in Jan 2008, sitting in first class 1D(window). AS we started our descent into Dallas, and probably 10 -15 min before we landed we were going over a town, which I later found was Stephenville. The elevation of the airplane was probably 10k-20k ft. Looking out the window and at an angle from the vertical of about 20 degrees below me was the layout of the town. At the edge of the southwest corner of the town there was an immense flying structure which was moving very slowly towards the NE at very low altitude (<500ft).. I estimated from my vantage point that the craft was about 2/3 the size of the town's footprint. AS I watched in amazement and thought to myself that everyone will see this object as it enters the town, it started to fade and became invisible over about 5 seconds, ie before it went across the town. All these years, I have not mentioned this to anyone because of the high strangeness, and given my seniority in a global eng/const company. I happened to see something about the stephenville sightings on TV and thought I'll add my statement, for what its worth. Note that I now live in Australia, so email best
Imagine if the weirdest thing you ever saw in the sky was a shooting star. And then one evening, you see not one, not two, but multiple UFOs! That's what happened to one witness, according to two recent reports submitted to MUFON. Read the testimonies below, which detail two incredible UFO sightings. Then compare these reports to the famous Stephenville lights from 2008. Could these events be related? As always, you be the judge:
[report 1: case 98486]: A cloud of glittering or sparkling lights appeared in the sky at night as I was driving in a rural area. Two of these then burst into flare-like brilliance before disappearing.
Famous "Stephenville Lights" of 2008:
In 2008, mystery lights seen and photographed over Stephenville, Texas made news headlines. Orange/red glowing orbs, flying in formation (or perhaps connected to one single craft!), were seen flying over Texas, specifically in the direction of (then) President George Bush's ranch in Crawford. Although there was radar captured of the event, the story quickly fizzled in the media and multiple "debunkings" have been given since.

A UFO has been spotted in Stephenville, Texas city known for strange areal phenomenons. In the YouTube video below, you can see one bright star-like object wandering around the night sky, moving in circles:
The thumbnail is THIS UFO blown up - it's shaped like a jack-n-the-box head. These have been passing every single night that we look up. Some dim, some bright, traveling north south east or west. The other night I saw 3. I thought they could be satellites since they are illuminated by the sun, shortly after sunset, but you never know.
The UFO appears to be too high up and fast to be a typical plane, drone or satellite, but until we learn more, it will be hard to crack this case. If you also live in Texas and have seen a UFO recently, report your sighting!
Story updated September 9th (updates in red): Texas UFO Sightings continues to receive statewide reports of a 'wandering" or "wobbling" star that does disappearing acts, changes colors, and even zig zags about! Many people (including a local ufologist who I follow) speculate that this is just a bright planet - perhaps Venus - however most eyewitnesses describe the light behaving in a way that a planet (or satellite, for that matter) should not. Could this be a unique optical illusion that is happening due to unique space conditions?, a super nova?, the ISS, or something even stranger, like an ET space craft or satellite? Although Venus is a bright planet this month, there is nothing on the astronomical/star gazing calendar that would lead you to expect to see anything new in the sky on September 5th, the day these sightings started. If you have theories, join the conversation. If you saw this "star" as well and don't think this is a "star" at all, report your sighting!
Texas UFO Sightings received several reports last night and this morning - from different parts of the state. Everyone saw a very large glowing object very high up in the sky, as if it was a star or satellite. However, it did things that a star or satellite should not do - like wobble, disappear and reappear, and even change colors. The photos the witnesses snapped show a bright star-like object, but each witness saw different things:
I saw the same object over Granbury TX near Stephenville. The object has appeared for the last 3 nights over the lake. Here is a picture off my camera phone.
Lake Lewisville (September 2nd):
I check this site weekly and I wasn't quite sure if this was a planet or some type of Ufo. Now that I have seen others post similar pictures in the dallas area I thought I would share. I came home from work just before dawn and I noticed an abnormally bright light in the sky. I checked an app called the night sky to see if it was planet and it showed that Mars and Venus were in the same area. I was looking south towards Dallas from the lake. The object was the brightest light in the sky which had no color to it like most planets when you view them at night. I decided to get the binoculars out and noticed the light had an odd shape to it. I got my Samsung S6 which has a 8x zoom and great clarity. I began taking pictures and zoomed in further than what I could see with the binoculars. I'm not sure if this was actually a planet or not so I thought I would share. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks you
Unknown city in Texas:
Bright light in the sky it stood out. And watched it for over a hour. Only once did it move enough for to notice. I saw it move forward then backwards in one motion. It would also dim down on the brightness to where it was faint then real bright again. I'm watching it again as I write this. I guess it got smarter about making a visible ruckus. Almost forgot also saw tonight a star looking object moving around the bright object in the sky. I even called my family to see it, satellites I don't know . I'm still unsure about what exactly I'm seeing when i look through my binoculars. I put it on a tripod so it won't move. Anyways i think i see faintly parts of the craft. There's definitely three orb like lights in the center that dim and go bright. And seems to look like i guess wings like a plane on the side and a tail. Again idk if my eyes are playing tricks on me but if they are they been doing it for the past two days. And I'm 27 so still in the prime of my eyes
A friend and I noticed a very bright sphere shaped object hovering stationary in the sky early this morning in the Houston, TX heights area (9-5-15, 6am). No sounds coming from the object, it was silent and very still but noticed many different moving/hovering lights around it. Faint red lights surrounding it, and almost a faint green misty looking trail behind it. We saw the brightly illuminated objects around it moving at an about average speed towards and away from the bright white sphere shaped object. I will not specify on any belief/non-belief on such things, it seems as though most invest too much emotion in that sort of thing... Just want to clearly state facts and provide original camera phone photos we snapped. Very interesting though...
East of Amarillo, along i-40:
So I don't know what this was. I saw it for about 2 hours when it was dark and I was heading from Amarillo to Oklahoma. I figured it was a satellite, and it may have been. The strangest thing was that at one point I watched it literally fade out completely until it was a light blue dot, then gone for about 30 seconds. It then faded back in the exact same way. Weather balloon? It was too high for any kind of tower, and it wasn't an airplane.
I saw a bright object in the East rising the same rate as the stars. It might be a Large Balloon but I'm wondering if it is a Supernova. Perhaps it is and perhaps not.
Pearland (at Woody RD & FM 518):
Like I sat and watched what appears to be a orb whitish in color ,swaying back and forth from time to time then it would just sit still for while and act like a rising star. I'm watching it like right now as I type, when I first came out side for smoke it was yellowish and appeared to be a plane before whatever it is started acting like a star but I'm like dude I see you moving . I'm guessing it could be a drone of some sort because this isn't the first time I've seen this wondering star doing whatever it is doing .I watched for at least 45 minutes
Check out some of the most recent comments and reports about this strange "star":
We noticed a large white glowing light floating straight up into the sky. It seemed to sit still for about 15 seconds, then it slowly drifted to the right , then changed to a bright red color. The color was very intense. This object did not make any noise. It glowed red about 10 seconds then turned white again. It started to slowly lower down but we lost sight of it. It startled us because it seemed to just appear, and we have not seen it before. I read that three other people in Texas could've possibly witnessed the same type of lights!
Did you see this "star" as well? Please report your sighting so we can solve this mystery!
It's very odd to see such a frenzy of reports like this -- but could we simply be looking at the ISS or a satellite? Or is this something much more unusual, like a supernova (as one witness suggested) or even an ET spacecraft? Share your thoughts in the comments or on the Facebook page.
A resident near Stephenville (famous for its UFO sightings, which persist to this day) has been seeing UFOs for quite some time now, and has snapped several photos since the 1990s. Most recently, he saw a large glowing round object with a fiery tail, which vanished without a sound. Check out the photos and testimony, submitted to MUFON:
Came out of my house to look for a strange display in the sky which comes in early every morning. This display consists of what seems to be five stars. Three in the center with top one slightly off center to the left. Two outer ones parallel one to other, positioned between top and second center ones. Comes in from the east and stops. Strange thing, display does not travel across the sky as earth rotates. Instead, it remains stationary, then as dawn occurs, the display appears to travel upwards into outer space. There is an underground Lockheed base about two miles from my house. I'm certain all activity here has a lot to do with that base. I was looking around for other activity when I saw the sphere with a long fiery tail. It only lasted about two seconds then vanished. No sound. I've seen several spheres in past years, one I caught on film. Since 1993, I have photographed several ufo's around Morgan. All at night except for one I caught at sunset, you can actually see the cockpit window. It made no sound, as none do and was not visible to the naked eye. I've seen so many here, that I've become bored with them. This mornings sphere, seemed to be coming out of another dimension into ours. It did not come from outer space! Wrong angel for that to occur. Didn't get a photo of this sphere, but I do have others I'd like to submit, especially the sunset one. I have the negatives.
