Wasn't this UFO supposedly a mile long and a half mile wide. In the original news story Steve Allen described the UFO. Someone please explain how
that could have been a military aircraft.
The following are excerpts from the original AP story on MSNBC.com about the stephenville UFO:
"Sorrells said he has seen the object several times. He said he watched it through his rifle's telescopic lens and described it as very large and
without seams, nuts or bolts."
"Maj. Karl Lewis, a spokesman for the 301st Fighter Wing at the Joint Reserve Base Naval Air Station in Fort Worth, said no F-16s or other aircraft
from his base were in the area the night of Jan. 8, when most people reported the sighting."
"Machinist Ricky Sorrells said friends made fun of him when he told them he saw a flat, metallic object hovering about 300 feet over a pasture behind
his Dublin home. But he decided to come forward after reading similar accounts in the Stephenville Empire-Tribune."
MUFON is said to have gone out to investigate the sighting but I haven't heard anything. It will be interesting to hear what they have to say.
The following is an interview Steve Allen particpated in with Bill O'Reilly and another witness to the UFO event, James Hughes.
It's pretty interesting.
The following is from that same interview:
HUGHES: Well, you say hometown Stephenville. I was actually two blocks from the center of town, actually, from the courthouse. And I had just walked
out of the house, walking a couple of friends to their car, when I looked up. And there was two very large, glowing — I'd call them glowing,
burning kind of looking objects, globe-like-looking objects that were just barely moving in the sky and hovering in the sky over my house. And it was
pretty startling. It absolutely was.
O'REILLY: Now, when they went away, and then Mr. Allen says they came back, did you see the military aircraft around?
HUGHES: No, I didn't see the military aircraft. And I actually didn't hear any noise at all. These were real low in the sky and very close. And they
weren't making any noise at all at that time.
O'REILLY: Were you scared?
HUGHES: I didn't hear any — no, I was actually very curious. I was fascinated, really. I'm used to trying to figure out most things that I see.
And when I saw these, and it was something I couldn't explain. And I'm not used to seeing something that I can't explain. So I was fascinated.
That's what I was. I was just...
O'REILLY: I believe you guys. I believe you guys saw stuff. I'm not sure about the military. If it's 3,000 feet, sometimes it's hard to identify
that, Mr. Allen, you know, what they are.
But I believe you guys saw something. I don't know, obviously, what it is. I can't possibly know that. But do you guys get angry when people go,
"Oh, this is a bunch of bologna?" Does that bother you, Mr. Allen?
ALLEN: No, we expected that. And of course, it was up close and personal. The visibility was unlimited and still plenty of sunlight the first time we
saw it. So, no, I know what we saw, and lots of other folks saw it.
The following are drawings from some of the witnesses:
The following is an excerpt from a news report from abc news at the following URL:
"Steve Allen, a 50-year-old pilot, was at a campfire with friends and says the object was a mile long and half a mile wide. "I don't know if it was
a biblical experience or somebody from a different universe or whatever but it was definitely not from around these parts," Allen said. "
There's certianly alot of evidence in this case...
