Was there any positive conclusion to this " event " ?

There was plenty of media coverage, eye-witness accounts, police reports, radar records etc, both at the time and after the event.

However i have never seen a definitive conclusion to if what was documented was actually the " real thing " or not. Is the case now closed?

If there are any recent updates i would be pleased to see or hear them.

There were a lot of scattered reports with very little consistency. A lot of people saw "something," but their descriptions varied significantly.

Like all UFO cases, the overall upshot was that we all went about our humdrum little lives and it had no effect on us at all.

Believe it or not there is a small airport there. Could have been a larger drone going at night there. Back then they weren't as prevalent.

Flagged for an incident I truely believe happened.

Only thing I have seen is the episode of UFO Hunters(?) and they interviewed a rancher/local man from there and he said something like - he never saw anything so big in his life and it definitely did not come from this planet due to it's size, it was so close he could see the markings on it and it was appox. 1/2 mile long. He said he never was a believer in UFO or anything of the sorts, but he wasn't sure now.

From the look on his face, him just telling the story, he looked like he saw a ghost and saw something weird.

I think it was UFO hunters on their Stephenville episode(?)

I haven’t heard anything more about it, but I was there! My brother owns some land right outside of Stephenville where he stays sometimes when he isn’t at his home in Dallas, and my parents and I were visiting him at the land the weekend after all the sightings.

We hadn’t heard anything about any sightings at the time. My brother has a very large telescope that we were all looking through that night, and we all saw some strange lights that were moving in a weird zig zag motion, way up in the sky. My dad even commented that this might be a ufo, because we couldn’t figure out what could make those kind of sharp right angle turns.

It wasn’t until the next Monday, that we started to hear about the sightings that had happened the week prior. We all freaked out a bit, wondering if what we saw had anything to do with it.

I am currently driving through Stephenville Texas right now! Wife just took over driving, so I pull up ATS and bam!
I personally witnessed something strange around that same time.
We were driving home from the coast. It was about 2 or 3am, wife and kids were asleep. It was really dark and then all the sudden it was daylight, I could see everything for miles, then darkness again.
The next day they said a meteor lit up the Arlington area on the news. Stephenville is a long way from that area but I assume that’s what it was, but it Had to be huge to light up an area that big for no damage or sonic boom.
My wife and kids also took a video of a large triangle shaped aircraft heading towards Stephenville and sent it to me at work. (They call me a conspiracy/ufo nerd all the time being funny). They were half joking, but they also were a little freaked out too.

This has always been one of my favorite modern sightings, due to the sheer size of the craft.

Yep, and the flight track went down by Bushesnranch, too with F 16s following

With no evidence to support it, I'll propose this....

Some dignitaries were at the Bush ranch in Crawford at that time and got treated to a "demonstration" of some of our advanced/black technology. Some other platforms were in use in the area (drones etc) which created a distraction from the actual craft (triangle) that overflew the area.
Like many sightings and events where military presence was involved (Cash/Landrum), we'll probably never know unfortunately.

Star!

Agreed .. the shocking look on the guys face was definitely unmistakable ..because that kind of weirdness even after the event leaves a memory that the mind can't explain...no matter how much time has passed ..

agreed yes.. we may never know ...

but the size of what people saw .. defies the manufacturing facilities we currently have even underground, that we know of.. there's a thread here on ATS that shows the shear size of the crafts reported and the comparison of our largest commercial/military jets....

the Question remains, where are they being built..

Kandinsky has a Radar thread on Stephenville.


Review of the case by Mirageman


Nick Redfern did a write up on the case this year, he noted nothing new that I could tell.

According to Tom DeLonge the technology is reverse engineered at one location.Then,if successful,the reverse engineered tech is taken to another location to be applied to making different components.After that the parts are then taken to yet another location to be assembled and then to another location to be tested.If it passes the tests the product will then be sent to another location for operational use.

In the book Sekret Machines:Chasing Shadows it is hinted that these facilities are located in wilderness protected areas,land that supposedly contains endangered species (like the Ash Meadows Speckled Dace
) where even the military is not allowed access without special permit.

I was watching a YouTube video about Lockheed Martin's Helendale facility and was surprised to see on the front gate,near the "WARNING:dangerous chemical,can cause birth defects,cancer etc." sign,two signs:"CAUTION: Protected species found on site.Drive with care." and "ATTENTION:Federal & State endangered species on site.Active desert tortoise area.AVOID CONTACT."Just like in the book.

I can't say I've seen anything that has gotten closer to solving the mystery since I pulled that thread together a couple of years ago. Like I said in that thread




The ‘Stephenville Lights’ case contains all the main elements of a classic UFO incident:

1) Puzzling initial UFO reports
2) Official denials from the military
3) Separate witnesses stepping forward as the case began to unfold
4) Witness intimidation (in the case of Angelia Joiner the local journalist she was pressured into resigning her job)
5) Hard, but inconclusive, evidence in the radar data made available



However although it's fairly recent case and there are multiple witnesses plus radar returns it seems to be one of those that has been forgotten about. At the time there seemed to be a lot of discordant voices and so trying to make sense of it all becomes difficult.

The official position from the authorities is that an Air Force training exercise was being carried out.

Time is definitely on their side, like most cases. Looking back at the Phoenix case, unless you have a video or something substantial, the military doesnt feel obliged to give an answer. At least with the Phoenix case, the flares were in spot one could expect and the explanation all makes sense.

Does military exercises over Stephenville make sense, there is some restricted air space close by, but technically it shouldnt have gotten outside of that. Definitely makes more sense than Hudson Valley though.

Just a gut feeling, but most likely military.

agreed, but only thing that really puzzles me is if the size of the crafts is of that size..

how could you launch such one ?? just thinking out loud i guess

If you can control gravity size becomes largely irrelevant,at least when it comes to flying.The crafts could also be modular in design,like Legos,to help with handling and storage.

But what leaves me stumped however,is how these massive ships avoid getting caught on camera despite flying low and slow,sometimes in broad daylight,over populated areas including large urban areas.We should have dozens and dozens of crystal clear close-up videos of these things but we don't.It's like they are immune to Murphy's Laws and slip-ups.How can these peope be so competent?Weird.
