STEPHENVILLE, Texas - In this farming community where nightfall usually brings clear, starry skies, residents are abuzz over reported sightings of what many believe is a UFO.

Several dozen people — including a pilot, county constable and business owners — insist they have seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.

"People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times," said Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot who said the object he saw last week was a mile long and half a mile wide. "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts."

Why do these things always appear in podunkville where one might have the inclination to doubt the, er . . . credibility of the witnesses?

This doesn't help with credibility:

Machinist Ricky Sorrells said friends made fun of him when he told them he saw a flat, metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a pasture behind his Dublin home. But he decided to come forward after reading similar accounts in the Stephenville Empire-Tribune.
"You hear about big bass or big buck in the area, but this is a different deal," Sorrells said. "It feels good to hear that other people saw something, because that means I'm not crazy."
Sorrells said he has seen the object several times. He said he watched it through his rifle's telescopic lens and described it as very large and without seams, nuts or bolts.
So...... He saw it several times, but instead of getting his Polaroid Instamatic ready he points a rifle at a UFO being escorted by fight jets. :scratch:

I don't know....

Notice how the Air force pilot who wasn't even there completely debunked the whole thing by saying the sun and light was playing tricks on them. Tey will never admit to it until one lands on top of the superdome or on the whitel house lawn.
I will never believe it until one lands on top of the Superdome or on the White House lawn.

Seriously, why would they just fly around watching us? I don't get it.

You live in Texas and you don't think it's more likely that a guy in a small town would sooner be able to pull a rifle with a scope outta his pickup truck? :dunno:

:hihi: Yeah, after I posted I thought that's exactly what a lot of Texans would do - point a gun at it - even if they had a camera available. However, at some point, most of us would realize that a "UFO sighting" was our ship coming in - if we just had enough sense to take a photo. :)

I mean.. Do we really have to understand everything that is out there?

Some things can be possible, that we can't wrap our minds around - no?

I'm not saying that it's definitley true, but I'm not going to say it's not, either.

Most folks on the street have a cell phone with a camera on it. No pictures?
