Fort Worth, Texas - Fighter jets were training nearby the night dozens of Stephenville-area residents reported seeing a UFO this month, Air Force Reserve officials said Wednesday, backtracking on earlier statements.
North Texans shared their stories of supposed UFO sightings at a meeting called by UFO investigators in Dublin.
Dozens of people crowded into Dublin's Rotary Club to talk with the Mutual UFO Network, a group of UFO buffs. Texas MUFON director Ken Cherry said the group "definitely" knows something is going on in Stephenville.

Would you laugh if I said I had seen a UFO?
A pilot, county constable and business owners were listed as the witnesses for the recent UFO sighting in Stephenville. These credible, upstanding people reported seeing a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. The size has been estimated as a mile long and half-a-mile wide.
When you report something like that, people are going to talk.

An organization called the Mutual UFO Network has been talking with residents who say they spotted something mysterious in the night skies over Stephenville.
Investigators from the group met over the weekend at the Stephenville Rotary Club Building with about 200 people who said they saw what may have been UFOs in the sky over the community in late December and early January.
Fireball over Stephenville, Texas, 19 January 2008.
(Stephenville) UFO fever continues in North Texas. After last weekends sightings in Stephenville, even more people have come forward with pictures and reports of the unexplained air-craft. One truck driver, Sean Kiel said, "I was just going across 20, and out of the clear blue I saw something out in the sky." Take a look for yourself. You can see an extremely bright fireball of light, with a long tail. Witnesses says the light seemed to disappear as the sun went down... And says it looked like a meteor entering the atmosphere.
Comment: Funny how, now that fireballs are becoming more and more common, they are calling them UFOs. Could it be that UFOs are less of a menace than fireballs? If you've been reading our SOTT pieces on comets, then you know the answer to that one.
Former Arizona Governor Fife Symington will be moderating a November 12 event at the National Press Club where he will discuss the Phoenix Lights incident. He says he will be joined by 14 former high-ranking military and government officials from seven countries who will share evidence from what they call their own UFO experiences and investigations.
Fife Symington says he nearly had a close encounter while governor of Arizona.
Comment: CNN cover of the story.
It may seem encouraging that a public figure chooses to give his testimony and share his view with the public. But notice that at first Symington ridiculed the event, and even made a show in the city hall with his aid wearing an alien costume just to demonstrate his attitude toward the issue. A question arises how come he suddenly comes out and tells that he knew it was something otherworldly? We are given the usual and convenient excuse that Symington wanted to avoid public panic. But is it possible that he was given permission, or told to open the issue? And if it is so, for what purpose?
In this ground breaking multi-part video series, Laura Knight-Jadczyk discusses the history of the modern spiritual movement and the pitfalls and traps awaiting any would-be "channeler". She also provides a glimpse into the events that led to the beginnings of the "Cassiopaean Experiment".
