While federal officials insist there's a logical explanation, locals swear that it was larger, quieter, faster and lower to the ground than an airplane. They also said the object's lights changed configuration, unlike those of a plane. People in several towns who reported seeing it over several weeks have offered similar descriptions of the object.

Pretty fascinating, and very credible story worthy of more investigation. One guy said he thought it might be reflections generated by two aircraft, but that does not seem to fit what the witnesses described at all.

No where in the Bible does it say that UFO's is going to bring in the "end of times."
Makes no since to me.

While the F-117 Stealth was in its infancy, and still a top secret, I bet sightings of IT were thought to be UFO sightings by regular, uninformed people. And they secretly had that craft for some ridiculous amount of time .. like .. over 10 years they were flying these things around but they "didn't exist" you see.

Flashing strobes, silent, flames out the back side and jets chasing it!
On 1-8-2008 at 6:15 pm CST. my friends and I was watching the sunset when several strobes or flashing lights coming from the east at about 3500 foot agl heading west toward Stephenville, TX. Estimated speed was about 2000 to 3000 mph.
The strobes made several changes of flash patterns and configurations. The flight duration lasted about 3 minutes. The front two strobes was about 1/2 mile a part and the back ones was about 1 mile back from the front strobes. The back side of the flashing lights came to a vertical flashing.
Then there was 2 separate vertical flames about 1/4 mile apart for several seconds and the craft was gone.
We never head ANY noise from the craft! They headed west towards Abilene, TX.
Then about 10 minutes later here came the craft again with 2 jets chasing. They were headed east towards South Ft. Worth, TX, at about 4000 ft. agl. The jets were unable to catch and went off into the distance at FULL throttle.
I am a pilot and have been fling for 30 years and have never seen anything like this. I also fly several times a week in the area. The craft is NOT from around these parts!
The witnesses are 1. ((male name deleted) 254-((number deleted)), rancher/trucker 2. ((male name #2 deleted)) 254-((name deleted)), delivers mail for the U.S. Postal Service 3.
