I just watched an interesting video on the 2008 Stephenville, Texas UFO sighting. If you never heard of this case, here's a great thread on it, that was posted that same year.
Here's a little summary:
On January 8, 2008, Stephenville gained national media attention when dozens of residents reported observations of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Several residents described a craft as the size of a football field, while others said they were nearly a mile long, similar to the Phoenix lights mass sightings of March 13, 1997. Some observers reported military aircraft pursuing the objects. CNN's Larry King covered the news story in the days following the incident, and according to Steve Allen, a private pilot who witnessed the UFO, the object was travelling at high speed which supposedly reached 3,000 feet in the air. Allen said it was "About a half a mile wide and about a mile long. It was humongous, whatever it was." The History Channel show UFO Hunters featured a story about the UFO sightings. On January 23, after initially denying that any aircraft were operating in the area, the US Air Force said that it was conducting training flights in the Stephenville area that involved 10 fighter jets. The Air Force said they were merely F-16 Fighting Falcon jets conducting night flights from NAS JRB Fort Worth.
The following video was posted on YouTube yesterday by the History channel. It's a 5 minute clip from the full episode, that aired this past Friday, on the History show called "In Search Of."

It seems hi-def camera-phones have killed MAJOR sightings dead, when one have thought the opposite would be the case. Funny that. Perhaps because everyone is gazing downwards rather than UPwards (or even straight ahead) these days, like a moby-entranced Dawn of the Dead.
