'Unidentified freaky lights' fill the sky


www.empiretribune.com

Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said the county dispatcher reported six calls between 7:33 and 7:44 p.m. coming in from various areas in the county. From Highway 108 to Highway 67 and out to CR 454, callers reported clusters of large orange or amber lights.

Joel Stroup called the sheriff’s office when he spotted the lights on FM 205. “The whole horizon coming into Stephenville was lit up with lights,” Stroup said. “There’s no doubt when you see them.”

Stroup said the lights were about the size of oranges and flashed on and off. After about 30 seconds, the string of lights disappeared.

Well, it looks like there were more sightings in Stephenville, Texas. Will these sightings get as much press attention as the other one? I'm wondering what is so special about my hometown.

I haven't seen any of these 'lights' myself nor do I personally know anyone that has seen them. BUT, when my mom was younger she saw UFOs on my families land. I also saw 'something' when I was a young girl on the same land. Could it have someting to do with the nuclear plant that is about 30 miles away?

well lets hope they get beter video footage of the lights this time.

All footage last time - though interesting - still wasn't that special despite the huge significance of the situation

It's most likely a series of flares dropped by a military jet. They sometimes do this as part of their test scrambles. So you end up with a string of lights that are falling through the air. To an observer on the ground, they would just look like they're lights, hanging in the sky. If the air currents are strong enough, the flares will be carried around to create, what appears to be patterns in the sky.

The air force is often unwilling to share information about their test flights, and/or nobody contacted them in the area to ask.

Do you realize that this happened in Stephenville, Texas... the same place that it happened a few months ago and was ALL over the TV? On CNN and everything...???

I'm not saying that it wasn't military but I just want everyone to realize the significants of all the sightings.

Even though I do not buy such an explanation for incidents such as the "Phoenix Lights", and despite the fact that I do believe something extremely wild went on in Stephenville, TX last Winter (2008), I feel, at least from the given description, that these "Orange Lights" were in fact Flares dropped during a MIL Exercise. Lackland AFB is SE of there with F-16 Falcons , and Dyess AFB is NW of the location, with B-1B Lancers. Fort Hood is not all that far to the SE either, but they mostly have Apaches, Blackhawks, etc. (Helos can drop Flares, but they typically drop them in an Umbrella Pattern, not a Line).

So in all honesty, without observing them myself I can only provide my best estimate as to what they were.
