UFO Over Texas

Larry King was talking about it. The Washington Post, CBS, Fox, the AP and MSNBC reported on it. A UFO over Stephanville Texas seen by dozens of people has stirred things up. Is veil finally coming off this whole UFO scene. One observer was quoted as saying:

“It's unexplainable,” Odom said. “It was something not natural; it was moving way too fast.”

In Mexico over the last few years there have been sightings of UFO's by 100's of people in large crowds, including police and government officials. More than once the crowds saw multiple UFO's in the daytime skies. The skeptics come out of the wood work and claim that ordinary people are not trained observers and don't know how to interpret what they saw. This was case in Phoenix ten years ago when hundreds of people all over the city saw a gigantic UFO that was visible for a very extended period of time. According to the skeptics there are always logical explanations - usually referred to as "atmospheric conditions" or normal aircraft so distant that they look strange to the naked eye. Here an untrained observer cleverly observed the Texas craft:

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.

Sorrells said. "It feels good to hear that other people saw something, because that means I'm not crazy."

I reported right here in 2006 about the United Airlines pilots and other ground crew personnel at O'Hare International in Chicago who reported seeing a saucer-shaped craft hovering over the airport before shooting up through the clouds. Again federal officials and skeptics said nothing showed up on the radar and explained it as some type of weather phenomenon.

Citing the lack of any physical evidence the skeptics say we have nothing to prove that UFO's are anything but ordinary events that "look" extraordinary. Hard to argue the point about having physical evidence. However, more and more people are convinced the U.S. government in particular knows much more than they are letting on. Other governments are starting to come forward. The feeling I get is that something is going on and the government does absolutely know some things they are not willing to share, but the bottom line is that I don't think they have any better answers than the rest of us.

This is the very premise of my version of the "Great American Novel" that I wrote a few years ago. It is available here for all to read -- Eye In the Sky -- you tell me: is it actually coming true?
