UFOs Over the Lone Star State
In the past week, dozens of people in Stephenville, Texas have reported seeing an enormous UFO hovering over their small town. They describe a brightly-lit, silent aircraft capable of flying at extremely high speeds. Some witnesses even claim to have seen jet fighters chasing it. But what makes this story more believable than most is the large number of highly respectable people who say they've seen the strange object. (Not necessarily counting a guy interviewed on CNN who said his first reaction was to shoot at it.) Watch a video about the sightings here.
If you live in Texas, and you've heard of the sightings, be sure to let us know what you think!
It all reminds me of an even more remarkable UFO sighting that took place eleven years ago. In March, 1997, thousands of people in Phoenix, Arizona witnessed a V-shaped formation of lights silently gliding over the city. The lights, which have since become known as the Phoenix Lights, appeared to be attached to an "craft of unknown origin" more than a mile wide.
Among those who observed the strange phenomenon was the governor of Arizona, Fife Symington. He talks about what he saw that night in the jaw-dropping CNN video below.
