UFOs Over the Lone Star State

In the past week, dozens of people in Stephenville, Texas have reported seeing an enormous UFO hovering over their small town. They describe a brightly-lit, silent aircraft capable of flying at extremely high speeds. Some witnesses even claim to have seen jet fighters chasing it. But what makes this story more believable than most is the large number of highly respectable people who say they've seen the strange object. (Not necessarily counting a guy interviewed on CNN who said his first reaction was to shoot at it.) Watch a video about the sightings here.

If you live in Texas, and you've heard of the sightings, be sure to let us know what you think!

It all reminds me of an even more remarkable UFO sighting that took place eleven years ago. In March, 1997, thousands of people in Phoenix, Arizona witnessed a V-shaped formation of lights silently gliding over the city. The lights, which have since become known as the Phoenix Lights, appeared to be attached to an "craft of unknown origin" more than a mile wide.

Among those who observed the strange phenomenon was the governor of Arizona, Fife Symington. He talks about what he saw that night in the jaw-dropping CNN video below.

IF I like HP... I'm a HP MANIAC!

My mom listened to a podcast on NPR about that. It was interesting (she made us listen to it to.) The the weird thing is, some people say they saw fighter jets, but the air force says that they didn't have any planes flying at that time! "A mystery we may never know the answer to" my dad said.

Oh by the way, remember I didn't comment for a while, and then I came back and commented on everything? Sorry about that, I was abducted by aliens who have super-sonic spaceships and no internet. Those Phoenix lights belong to a spaceship with an interior decorator with no taste and a passion for Hello Kitty, hot pink feather boas, parquet floors, and ninjas.
I case you wanted to know. ;)

I think people make too big a deal.
But what if it's just light? Then it's not an object... so it might just be UFE, unidentifiede flying energy. But nobody every uses that term. *dramatic sigh*

There was a UFO hoax on YouTube about a month ago that was quite good. I'll try and dig it up.

my national anthem
I pledge allegence to the earth
of all people, all animals and all life
and to the common belief for which it stands
that all are created equal
one world, under goddess
indivisable, with peace and prosperity for all

* sorry, i just had to put down in pen, the anthem i said today in class (i'm the only person in class who says the pledge anymore ;( )i got detention and a fierce reprimanding, but they had to let it go once I reminded them of free speech, my grades, and the fact that i was the only kid who said it anyway
Victory !

That's funny, I was just reading a story about some people who tried to get "Huckleberry Finn" banned from schools because they thought it was racist. The other people thought censoring books was a violation of the First Amendment.

i know what the UFOs were. they were simply govornment planes, they don't spread about all the stuff they make, they want to keep some things secret and they test them at night, resulting in the 'UFO' sightings. i'm not saying i don't believe in aliens, but come on, if YOU traveled 250000 lightyears and found a new planet, why not stop and say hello?
