Sightings stir UFO buzz
Stephenville, Texas was the center
of UFO attention last January. The following article, which
appeared in the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, was written by
Associated Press reporter Angela K. Brown, and was sent in by
subscriber Charlene Finkner (see her letter on page 2).
STEPHENVILLE — In this farming
community where nightfall usually brings clear, starry skies,
residents are abuzz over reported sightings of what many believe
is a UFO.
Several dozen people — including a
pilot, county constable and business owners — insist they have
seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast.
Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.
“People wonder what in the world it
is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it’s the
end of times,” said Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot
who said the object he saw last week was a mile long and half a
mile wide. “It was positively, absolutely nothing from these
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.
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.
“You hear about big bass or big buck
in the area, but this is a different deal,” Sorrells said. “It
feels good to hear that other people saw something, because that
means I’m not crazy.”
Sorrells said he’s 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 many sightings were reported.
Lewis said the object may have been
an illusion caused by two commercial airplanes. Lights from the
aircraft would seem unusually bright and may appear orange due to
the setting sun.
“I’m 90 percent sure this was an
airliner,” Lewis said. “With the sun’s angle, it can play tricks
Officials at the region’s two Air
Force bases — Dyess in Abilene and Sheppard in Wichita Falls —
also said none of their aircraft were in the area last week. The
Air force no longer investigates UFOs.
Sanni featured in Grand Jct. Sentinel
On March 30, Commander Sanni Ceto’s
story was told in a feature article that appeared in Grand
Junction (Colo.’s) Daily Sentinel. Gary Harmon wrote the article,
with the headline: UFOs, Aliens No Strangers to Grand Valley. You
can read the article on the UFO Casebook’s Web site at http://www.ufocasebook.com/040708.html.
Also, if you haven’t done so yet, it’s worth checking out Sanni’s
new Web site at http://sanniceto.tripod.com/index.html. She has
certainly come a long way in eight years! Now she is preparing to
leave Colorado and continue her mission in southern Arizona. We
wish you the best of luck, Sanni.
