Following the January reports of unidentified flying objects hovering in the sky above Erath County, the world has been wondering what it was that so many locals saw in those early weeks of 2008.

Now, there might finally be some answers.

The History Channel will present “UFO Hunters: Invasion of Texas 2008,” at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The show follows a group of experts as they study some of history’s most intriguing UFO accounts and the evidence surrounding the cases. This week’s episode will investigate local reports through scientific means in an attempt to uncover the facts surrounding the sightings.

Through experiment and reconstruction, UFO hunters Bill Birnes, Pat Uskert, Dr. Ted Acworth and Jeff Tomlinson will attempt to answer the questions: Could all of these people have seen something that was not there? Is the military hiding something? What about the reports that sightings have happened before, over a hundred years ago? The producers of the show claim to have acquired footage that will only be seen on the History Channel program.

For UFO investigators, the number of eyewitness accounts made the local case the most significant UFO sighting since the March 1997 sightings near Phoenix, AZ in which thousands reported a strange object in the sky above the Arizona desert.

To unravel the most recent mystery, The History Channel’s UFO Hunters brought cast and crew to Stephenville and worked for more than a week to get to the bottom of local reports.
