The more I think about it, we really need a timeline of events. This might clear up a few discrepancies of the craft's description. I believe the sheriff saw it as lights while others saw the craft as a large grey object. The sheriff seems to backing off a bit. I'm sure he is being laughed at back at the office

So maybe the ones holding the pics are thinking of cashing in to the highest bidder kind of a thing, we all know that recession is being whispered and everyones gun shy to spend the buck so maybe all are staying low out of the eyesight of our Oversears, so maybe it will only be a matter of time before something surfaces, wait and see.

Radio Broadcast just ended: report on National Public Radio 91.1 in Minneapolis MN about the Texas UFO sighting.
40+ witnessed fighter aircraft attempt to intercept the object. Witnessess include police and pilots. Government says it was light reflecting off commercial airliners!

Sorry to burst your bubble guys. I think we are all pretty sure what these sightings are,
Lighter than air to orbit Unmanned surveillance crafts. Man made black projects,
The bright lights on the bottom are added to hide the underside of the vehicle form ground observation. It a type of camouflage.
Even ran tests in Texas.
and from the Rand Corps own Documents:
And contract info on this project. Notice we are right in the middle of phase 4 testing:
Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems, Akron, Ohio, is being awarded agreement HQ0006-04-9-0001 for design and risk reduction phase 2 of the High Altitude Airship advanced concept technology demonstration. The objective of this Phase 2 effort is to continue design (through critical design review) and technical risk reduction efforts for a high-altitude airship system prototype that will demonstrate military utility by operating in the stratosphere as a long-endurance, quasi-geostationary platform with a contractor-supplied, government-approved payload or a government-supplied payload. The estimated total value for Phase 2 is $40,000,000 with a period of performance from October 2003 to June 2004. There is an option for a prototype, development, build and demonstration Phase 3 for an estimated total value of $50,000,000 with a period of performance from June 2004 to July 2006 and a follow-on option for an Extended User Evaluation Period Phase 4 for an estimated total value of $9,000,000 with a period of performance from August 2006 to July 2008. The Missile Defense Agency is the contracting activity (HQ0006-04-9-0001).
And lastly it's not odd that it would have chase planes. Standard testing procedure.
I think we have 90% certainty that this is a Black project. And considering the similar sightings in both the UK and US. It's probably that these are already in use in the operations theater.
Allen told Von Fremd that he saw "an arch shape converted in a vertical shape, and then it split and made two of them, and then these turned into just fire and it was gone."
