I blogged about the Stephenville, Texas UFO sightings here on Skepchick back in January. Since then, the citizens of the area have enjoyed a little notoriety and had some fun with the attention, marketing restaurants and merchandising various things with alien themes, a la Roswell, New Mexico.
Unfortunately, some folks just can’t have the fun without the belief.
Seems the lights in the Texas sky have returned ( see the news footage video here), and many people are as convinced as ever that something extraterrestrial is going on. It doesn’t matter that the military has confirmed that half a dozen or so F-16s out of Fort WorthÂ were training in the area at the time of the sightings. Most of the people interviewed claim that the lights they saw were visible well before the F-16’s showed up, leading the really hardcore UFO “experts” to insist that the military jets were in pursuit of the “alien space craft”.
Oh well, I suppose if I lived in that part of the state, I might just need a little extra something to make my life exciting, too.
Happy Halloween, Stephenville!
