Back on topic, I don't think we will see a difinitave picture from the Texas sighting, If we haven't seen a good picture or video by now, I doubt we will. I hope I'm wrong though.


One of the things I have noticed personally is that, even though I have a capable camera in my phone, when a startling event takes place, it is sometimes several moments before I think about my phone and taking a photo. While I grant that there are people who would be more inclined to take a photo quicker than I would, perhaps many of the people in Texas who were witnesses are more like me, and were just too excited/nervous/confused to think about trying to get a photo.


probably, now this makes me wonder if ufo's typically appear to people that don't want to take a picture to show proof or for people who get so excited that they dont think about taking a picture...

then it makes me wonder if the ufo has something that gets people more excited and send a subliminal message to them not to take a picture.

You know after reading this thread I think that a documentry I watched recently (UFOs 50 Years Of Denial) hits the nail on the head. The government no longer has to cover up UFOs with threats of violence, jail or patriotism. It now leaves it up to the public to ridicule and humiliate anyone who reports seeing a UFO.

I just had a thought... Seems like nobody had a camera with them at the time.... But maybe there is a store or gas station or home security system out there that caught something?

Who knows?



Don't most of those types of security cameras re-use the tape after "X" number of hours? I know mine do.

If so, then unless someone thought to check them last week, or the installation would be more current and be digital direct-to-disk, they may very well already have been recorded over.

This is a radar from the morning of the sighting. It maybe something, it may be nothing.

DR, thats way cool man.

Lemme jump way off the deep end and ask, if a UFO could shift dimensions, would the point at which it did, be picked up by doppler radar?

That sequence is WAY cool.

According to CNN,there is a video of this......


(CNN)-The Shot: UFO caught on tape?
CNN's Anderson Cooper shows cell phone video captured by an I-Reporter that shows a mysterious object in the sky.


Here it is...(Copy and paste the address in your window)

oh definitely! being under 18 years old i know this!!! but then again im also going to college earlier than most people so maybe thats why i think this way... or maybe because i have a brain and make choices to benefit myself.

I wonder if Greek scientist's back in the day had the same problem we are having today. people disproving something happened ( Texas ufo) and too lazy to some research to prove their reason on why or why not they believe.

I've always thought that "they" show themselves to unbelievers.

Why would they go to the trouble of appearing to those that "know" they exist?

Tarleton (the college) has a really nice planetarium. I wonder if they might have something. Surely they would have already came out with it if they did.

I really don't think that at all. You know, these were just ordinary people in a small town. The fact that there are no pics or videos is frustrating, but to me, not all that surprising. Until lately, I thought I was the only one in this world without a camera phone. I bet everyone in Stephenville is sticking close to their cameras now.

I think that we just need to accept the testimony of some seemingly credible, good people. But we do need some reps. down there putting together all of this testimony, including time lines, sketches, computer graphics, whatever it takes to compile and document this amazing event before too much time passes and memories and details fade.

My apologies, I've somewhat repeated myself from one of my earlier posts.

I think it is more than simple belief or disbelief.

A lot of people saw something. It was there. They don't know what it was, and from their descriptions, it was not normal. If it is simply disbelief, then the unbeliever is choosing to call into question the moral character of those who say they saw something that was not normal.

I rather think is it a matter of denial. There might be a number of reasons a person would choose to deny that would not have anything to do with belief or disbelief.

Perhaps they have a significant investment to keep people in the dark. Governmental denial would be an example. They have a set of presuppositions that people would freak if they "knew the truth", so they deny.

Another reason for denial would be that what was being reported does not fit into their world view. I'm not just speaking about religious people here - I am a religious person. But some people, regardless of their point of view, do not have a world view flexible enough to permit the unknown to exist. And then, when it is revealed that something unnatural has been seen, their world view does not permit that unnatural thing to exist, so they deny.

Another reason I can think of is peer pressure. A person might not deny inwardly that an unnatural occurrence has taken place, but because of perceptions by those with whom they have to interact, might publicly deny that that something unnatural was seen.

So I think the real tension is not between belief/unbelief, it is between acceptance/denial.

I mentioned this previously but I would think someone would have dialed 911?? Would love to hear those tapes and it would go a long way with verification.

some odd inconsistencies

1. the burn ban and flare dropping
2. fighter jets sighted and no military activity in the area
3. no military activity in the area and flare dropping.


It's funny, the gov't officially doesn't investigate ufos. That's their stance. Been this way since 1969. Then, you get this mass sighting and the military says it isn't interested in seeing the video or looking into the claim. let's assume for a second that there were no fighter jets, that this is a mistake on the part of 40 or so eyewitnesses. That means there was at the very least, one very large craft flying thru the area. In this post 9/11 world, the military has to investigate, has to look into this, has to determine that there was no threat in the skies. How they can outwardly say what they've been saying without even looking into the situation is pathetic.

I saw this on Anderson Cooper 360. I searched the archives for it, nothing there.

Anywho. I have a bit of a problem here. And I'm going to freakin' rant.

When I was a child in Costa Rica, I saw one night a huge hole in the sky just above the main radio tower in San Jose. Damn near everyone in the city saw what came next. It was a HUGE ship..But I didn't know it at the time. I lived in a third world country and didn't even know what a television was. My family was still getting our news on the radio. The news report said that we had been surveyed and visited by an extraterrestrial. The president said it was an Alien. And a study was put together. My mother never let me forget it. She's always been a devout Christian. Bless her heart, she's the one that introduced me to UFOs in the bible. Now this is a Cuban woman, living in a crappy little back water country. With little to no access to technology of any kind, A scientist in Cuba, telling me that the Bible is nothing more than coded history.

We moved to America in 1989. Our first UFO here was in L.A. as we flew into LAX. Saw the damn thing about what I determine now to be about 100 miles away and silver, with a rounded shape..Certainly not the same thing I was riding in at the time. Even as a 4 or 5 year old, I was able to make that distinction.

Now for the meat of the matter. Why is it so hard for the U.S. government to just quit BSing? They're pathological liars. Everything in the sky cannot possibly be an illusion, swamp gas, weather balloons. This story made it to CNN, and was witnessed by several reputable people, and the government uses the swamp gas routine? I'm am so tired of this crap.
Does anyone else just simply get angry when they hear the government say something this stupid? I don't want to be the only one that feels this way. Constantly betrayed and lied to and for what? It's like that feeling you get when your girlfriend is lying to you about screwing your best friend. Personally I've moved beyond "phenomenon" stage of my belief in other worldly visitation. I think that word adds a certain sense of ambiguity to the issue and takes from it's credibility. People in my country by and large know they're not alone in the universe...Because if you ask them, they've seen proof. Right above their heads.

They don't know why they're here anymore than you or I. But they accept it. and believe it, because there are no swamp gas stories out there. The government of CR knows they can't tell almost 1,000,000 people that they hallucinated. And yet here in the U.S. we have a problem accepting the word of our own best and brightest. And call it swamp gas and label them as UFO nuts. MUFON is on it's way down to Texas right now. But if you ask me, if they want official reports unclassified. They should start with Latin American Countries such as Costa Rica.

I believe every word you said.
I was only 2 or 3 yrs old when I saw a group of UFO's and I've never forgotten it and I'm 60 yrs old now.

I am so sick and tired of our government not telling us the truth.

People like you and I "know" they exist yet we didn't see what we seen.

Maybe the aliens have decided to tell us because they know this government is not going to .

I'll be so happy when that day comes and it may just be around the corner.

I'm going to start taking my digital camera everywhere I go , even if I'm jusy walking in my back yard.

That's called the old "bait and switch".
One benefit is that more people in Stephenville, TX are
walking out of their homes and looking up into the sky now.
Right now we need "Air Show #2" in Stephenville.
They probably ran out and bought some cameras.

I certainly hope so. But Somehow I think it's going to be quite some time before that happens. My mother once told me that along time ago, in Biblical times that it was easier to contact humans because of their ignorance to the universe. It was easier to come down in a ship and tell humans about their solar system, and about their galaxy. And the humans would just say it was god or a collection of gods and write a book about it and start 1,800 years of religious struggles and persecution, based on a sighting that made little sense to anyone out there. But we're sufficiently advanced now. People believe. Because we're in space. And this is NOT as good as it gets. My Mother is a former research scientist in the field of biology when she lived in Cuba. My father was Cuban M.I. and neither of them ever concealed the issue from me or my brother. Why do these idiots feel like they have to act as everyone's parent. I think back to that clip of Reagan saying "Maybe we need an threat from out of this world to bring us all together". Maybe we don't need a threat. But an ego check.

This was just now covered on Fox News again, this time showing the photos taken.

Edit: I actually posted it earlier, but it did not post, oh well.

Here are the pics for those missed them: www.myfoxkc.com...

Im from dallas and I did not see any television interuptions to test any kind of emergency system. Although that dosent mean that there wasnt one. Like I stated before what Ive seen is a test of the emergency broadcasting system. nothing out of the ordinary about it. Apparently youve seen something different. What station was it on? What did it look like. What did it say? Details please.
