The Stephenville sightings refer to a series of UFO sightings that occurred in and around Stephenville, Texas, in January 2008. The incident gained attention due to the number of witnesses, including law enforcement officials and pilots, and the significant media coverage it received.
On the evening of January 8, 2008, numerous residents reported seeing strange lights and objects in the sky. Witnesses described the objects as large, brightly lit, and moving at high speeds. Some witnesses claimed to have observed military jets pursuing or escorting the objects.
The sightings continued over the following days, with additional witnesses coming forward to share their experiences. Multiple law enforcement officers, including a county constable, reported seeing a massive, silent object with white lights, estimated to be about a mile long.
The incident drew media attention, and news outlets interviewed witnesses, further fueling public interest. In response to the reports, the U.S. Air Force initially stated that there were no military exercises or aircraft in the area during the sightings.
However, months later, after further investigation, the Air Force reversed its statement and acknowledged that military jets were conducting training exercises in the vicinity at the time.
