More UFO Sightings Reported Over Texas

More UFO Sightings Reported Over Texas

More UFO sightings in TX reported and as far away as San Diego

By Armando Duke

(AXcess News) Houston - While the first UFO sightings over Stephenville, Texas drew mass media attention, it turns out that eyewitnesses were reporting UFO sightings over San Antonio and Corpus Christi on the same night. Now, more eyewitness accounts have come in of UFO sightings that took place in San Diego on January 8th and near Stephenville, UFO sightings were reported on the 9th and 10th.

It appears that lights in the sky over Texas ran rampant for three nights in a row following the mass near-hysteria attention the Stephenville, TX UFO sightings brought when the local newspaper reported the first unidentified flying object eye witness accounts.

According to the Stephenville Empire-Tribune story, Steve Allen, Mike Odom and Lance Jones all witnessed the phenomena that Tuesday night.

The newspaper account reported that Allen was at the home of Mike Odom in Selden about 6:15 p.m. when they suddenly noticed flashing lights about "3,500 feet above ground level," he said.

"The ship wasn't really visible and was totally silent, but the lights spanned about a mile long and a half mile wide," Allen said. "The lights went from corner to corner. It was directly above Highway 67 traveling towards Stephenville at a high rate of speed - about 3,000 miles per hour is what I would estimate."

Meanwhile, WOAI Radio in San Antonio reported that UFO sightings took place that same night over the city and were seen by dozens of witnesses. The Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, reported that accounts were coming in as far away as Corpus Christi, all identifying similar UFO characteristics as the lights seen over Stephenville earlier that night.

MUFON's Texas chapter website carries eyewitness accounts of UFO sightings taking place the following evening and again on January 10th, reporting similar characteristics of bight lights, no sound and rapid high-speed travel.

On January 9th, one witness reported that he watched the UFO for about five minutes, using 50-power binoculars that gave him a clear image of the lights on the UFO. "I saw three distinct sets of lights, one small light on top a larger light, two fairly close together, one some distance away. I watched for approx. five minutes, they did not move," the UFO witness reported.

In a separate UFO sighting that same night, another witness said "I have seen these strobbing lights three different times now. The first time was about a month ago outside of Cisco on hwy 183. All three times it happened on the same route, only this time out of nowhere these huge bright lights appeared in the same manner as before. The lights were big and round and as they would each light up they started out dim and instantly got brighter, almost like huge spotlights," the UFO witness exclaimed.

Then on Thursday January 10th, a man traveling with his daughter driving from Eastland towards Lake Leon in a south easterly direction said, "We spotted two large bright lights like stars. The two lights moved towards each other very, very fast...faster than anything I had ever seen. They looked like they meet and then five or six smaller lights dispersed out in a circular pattern away from them and then everything just was gone." "We thought we were seeing things," the man said.

An alert reader hooked me up with a youtube video of a Fox News channel 6 report of a UFO sighting near San Diego - that took place on the same night as the Stephenville, Texas UFO sightings. In that two-minute clip, two eyewitnesses describe the unidentified flying object as being huge, with lights and making no sound at all before zipping away at lightening speed.

Many of the reports shown here were gathered by the Mutual UFO Network or, MUFON, which attempts to use a scientific approach in its investigations into the mystery surrounding UFO sightings.

MUFON co-founder Walter Andrus Jr. says more people are willing to come forward today and report UFO sightings than in the past. The Texas chapter of MUFON it seems has its hands full these days and Andrus was quoted as saying that MUFON would be working on its Stephenville and other Texas UFO sightings probably throughout the year because there was so much information to follow up on.

I hope to catch up with a MUFON representative here in Texas later this week and provide readers a first-hand interview into why all of a sudden there is so much UFO activity across Texas and if the saucer-chasers think the object seen over San Diego's evening skies on January 8th might be the same UFO -- or a different one altogether.

While I thank our many, many readers who've been sending us their own experiences with UFO sightings - and even some implant discoveries, abduction stories - and video links - please keep the emails coming. I promise, no contact will go unread and some are getting mentioned in this new series of stories on UFOs - with tonight's piece being the first. I hope to carry this investigation throughout the week and continue reporting on the sightings, conspiracies and skeptics in this fascinating look into the mysterious world of unidentified flying objects.

I want to apologize for not getting this series launched yesterday, but I wanted to be more prepared in reporting on the UFO phenomena, I hope the wait was worth it for all of you scifi buffs following along.
