Hello all,

I have been looking into the Stephensville UFO flap that occured in 2008. I have not seen a decent explanation yet and was hoping this case may be discussed with a view to trying to understand what exactly may have happened.

This case apparently has

- scrambled military jets giving chase
- radar returns
-multiple witnesses
-photos
-footage?
- cover up/denials

oh and plenty of misinformation and BS to wade through.

Does anyone have a good understanding of this case to provide an overview of the events?

i haven't heard about this one AT ALL, though it is so recent...! I want to read into it when i'm back from work, looks like it's worth it!

hello Seeder, I refarained from posting links or a summary as it seems the falp wasnt just limited to one date, usually January 8th 2008.

I thought it would be good to see what people know (think they know) and see what information gets posted.

do you know much about this case (the one your link refers to)? if so how would you summarise it?

A couple of UM members here also suggested it was worth investigating (one of them being Psyche, which in itself speaks volumes)

I also never realised how recent it was, it seems there is a hell of a lot of info out there about it and it doesnt seem to focus on just one day. Although information/sightings after the main event always need to be taken with a large pinch of salt, however the actions of the 'powers that be' after the event are definitely worth note....i.e. denial cover up etc...

Well its always refreshing to talk about something new, no Ive not looked into at all. Ive gone past the stage of seeking out such stories, now I just look into them as and when they come to my attention! Also, Im just about to pop out for some time. So long as the Forum Custodian doesn't try taking over 'your' thread and drag it down to his usual heights, it may well be interesting to have a shufty when I return.  Cheers for now

Some interesting radar animation that could help to unlock the case:

thanks Zoser, I think this may form part of the report/analysis from my link on post #8.

I will watch videos tonight hopefully and go through the report in finer detail.

Hopefully some of the old times (old in terms of experience rather than age) will give us some good information/ opinions so we can really get stuck into the detail of the case....

At least this one's an actual case and not just a video of a light over Istanbul, or whatever.

do you know a bit about this case SP?

I'd heard it referenced in the past but never realised just how big or recent it was....

Yes, and I'm actually surprised at the responses about not knowing much of it.

This was a very high profile case, witnessed by many, many people in that particular area of Texas. In addition, as I recall the object(s) violated the air space around the so called western White House, as this all occurred in and around  that area. It was a local media sensation at the time. There have been quite a few ufo programs that reference this particular sighting.
