Anyone care to do a blog search?

blogsearch.google.com...

Try to do an advanced search for the days in suspect.

Hi everyone,

I couldn't agree more with ngchunter statement on size estimation and how it is tricky on us. Regardless of this, there are enough eyewitnesses to start wondering if NARCAP* did not receive any reports at all during this time period.

Anybody wanna ask them ?
* : www.narcap.org...

Peace,
Europa

I haven't looked yet but a good source might be the JTAC which is the college paper. The college sight is tarleton.edu

I will look and see if i see anything.

Doesn't make sense again..if it was a military blimp(Laughable) U would most likely send Helicopters not jets as they are too fast. This thing was apparently going slower than an aircraft.
Again..if its a secret military craft theres no way they A: test it over a population & B: send jets to escort it and draw EVEN MORE attention to it.
They have THOUSANDS of dessert Acres to do this stuff with no hassles..MAKES NO SENSE to be anything we control. Use your common sense people!!!

Now that's a great find! Because the person had never seen this type of craft they assume it's being chased, when it very well could have been - being escorted.Lol

thanks, stellaway10 - maybe snoop around or keep your ears open for possible pictures. CNN is showing a picture with the story and it shows a metallic object but I'm not sure what I'm seeing.

And yet we know little, from second hand sources, about the vantage point of the people who saw it, where they saw it from, how much they saw, what they saw it moving relative to, where different people where relative to the object, etc.

So once again, why are tainting the credibility of the witnesses without having talked to them?

Someone posted that MUFON is supposedly headed down there. They will be in a better position to determine what we should dismiss.

There are two rules to apply here
1) People who see things at a distance have trouble judging their size
2) People over the internet have trouble judging the value of second hand overheard testimony.

Ok, fine, I'm off my soap box now. Lets just give a real investigation a chance before we theorize-away any value of something we didn't participate in.

You need cgi and fake ufo videos these days to convince the people.
A dozen witnesses isn't enough, after all they are all retarded and don't know what airplanes look like!


Anyways I believe it is a credible account and it is indeed an ET ship. Maybe 2008 has some importance.

Whoa. I have common sense and I'm applying it here. You can't dismiss it so easily that it wasn't being escorted. Just like a submarine could get into distress, in the sea, so could a military craft, in the sky.

I'm not saying for a fact it was being escorted. Just putting it out there as a possibility.

who cares if its a mile or 10 feet big..it was something unusual that did not resemble a conventional aircraft. Add on top of that the jets chasing we have an unusual situation here. I dont think you need to focus on just the 'size' issue here..

Yea I know what your saying..but if its moving as slow as they say it would make sense to send armed helicopters rather than fast jets ya know?
The jets would be dispatched for higher overall CAP but the helicopters would do a damn better job of keeping pace!

I looked and I don't think the JTAC has put out a paper for the spring semester yet. Keep an eye on it because I bet that they say something about the sightings. They will try to find students that saw something.

and of course no pics, but then again its not everyday you see UFO ebing chased by jets



ok, a little off topic here: how many believe in orbs? just insects? or paranormal energies?

i took a pic of 2 last night here in seattle



What constitutes an orb?

Do you mean a spherical light, a bit transparant?
I have seen those. Just lightspheres, not like an object. Often in the corner of my eyr. Once at night. I woke up, and saw a clear orb size lightbulb, comng "through" my closet swooshing in a straight line through my bedroom, passing me on the right side from bottom to toe, going through the wall behind me. Speed of a 40 mile passing car.
I just lay there, heart pumping. My partner was asleep. I will never forget it. It traveled as if there was no room, just passing by.

On 1/12/2008 at about 2:30pm in Frisco Texas I saw what appeared to be an orb the size of a volkswagon bug at about 2000ft as I drove North/east on highway 121. It was traveling North directly above Highway 121 and Preston rd.

With the events in Stephenville taking place, I couldnt help but think that there may be a connection. 5 million plus live in the greater DFW area. Some of us need to make an effort to skywatch for the next few days with our cameras handy...I know I will.

To taint their credibility implies that we're claiming they're lying. That's not what we're saying. What I'm saying is that there's no value in a statement of "size" of an unknown object seen in the sky unless it's accompanied by a statement of its true angular size and estimated or measured distance. Without that I'm afraid there's no reason to assume their estimation is accurate. If people come forward saying that they measured it based on its angular size or based on known landmarks a known distance apart, then we can start to make concrete statements about the minimum size. If ufology wants to be taken seriously then we can't assume that these kinds of blind estimations are, in fact, based on concrete measurements, sight unseen. I want concrete proof to emerge for personal reasons, but I refuse to let my reasons lead to me into blindly believing the accuracy of second or even first-hand reports of an object's size that wasn't properly measured. I'm not trying to "theorize away" the value of anything, I'm setting a realistic bar that must be overcome in order to confirm the conclusion that you and the witnesses would like me to believe.

I do know what you are saying, but hear me out, please.

A craft that we don't ever see, that would be used by the military would be coming down from a very high altitude. If it was the Shuttle in distress would they send helicopters or fighter jets?

And something else.

The military doesn't investigate U.F.O.s, so they don't have to talk about it. If it's from another world and they are chasing it - it will just get tossed in the proverbial basket of yet another sighting. But if it is a craft being escorted, because of distress - you just opened up a new can of worms.

If these craft are in distress and souping up at your nearest nuclear power plant - then U.S. citizens are possibly in harms way and that is the can of worms that has just been opened.

By souping up, I assume you are saying recharging or, something along those lines, then I agree, US citizens could be at risk. If a nuclear site were being invaded by a craft "souping up" wouldn't the nuclear site go on alert? and if so, wouldn't that become news worthy if only even at the local level? I would think so. Like the one here that recently went on high alert because some fool, blew up his dumptruck a mile or so away from the prairie island plant.

Glen Rose nuclear power plant is comanche peak. I'm trying to find the website to cross reference the dates. Also, glen rose has a weekly newspaper or biweekly, not sure which. I don't know if they have a website or not.

What I'm saying is that there's no value in a statement of "size" of an unknown object seen in the sky unless it's accompanied by a statement of its true angular size and estimated or measured distance.


To taint credibility is to propose that someone's account is not reliable. It does in any way require anyone to claim anyone is lying.

The old technique of putting an old lady witness on the stand and saying "so old lady, are you SURE you vision was good and you were awake when you saw my client?" line is a typical way to discredit a witness without claiming they are lying.

From what I understood of your post, you were claiming that the eye witnesses could not give a ballpark estimate of size because they are laypeople who get the size of the moon wrong.

I think that without knowing exactly what they saw, when and where, we cannot reach your conclusion.

Do we know that what they saw was a small object on the horizon? Or was it something large that passed near by? Because I would have trouble judging the size of something that passed along a flat horizon. But I would not have trouble measuring the minimum possible size of some new truck that flew overhead.

Just noticed a pic of an object in sky on CNN taken with the town buildings in foreground, in a clear blue sky. Ovoid, grey and somewhat indistinct; hard to say what size it is. Only shown briefly, like for a second. Perhaps someone can record CNN broadcasts and post a pic on the thread?
