On September 3, 2007, a strange UFO that appeared as a slowly drifting vertical light in the sky appeared and was videotaped over Finland, and now an oddly similar phenomenon has been videotaped over Iraq by US soldiers on patrol.
Around 25 people recently saw a UFO in the rural town of Stephenville, Texas, which is about 70 miles southwest of Fort Worth. The witnesses included a pilot, a lawman and several businessmen.
Reporter Angela K. Brown quotes one witness as describing the UFO "as a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast." Another witness describes seeing "red glowing lights and then white flashing lights moving fast." A reward has been offered for a photo or video of the object.
Brown quotes Stephenville resident Ricky Sorrells, who described the object as "very large and without seams, nuts or bolts."
These sightings come at an extraordinary time for UFO sightings around the world, with extensive video being recorded in Canada, the US, and especially the UK. While it is now difficult to gauge the intensity of a UFO flap due to the lack of centralized reporting facilities outside of the US, news reports from around the world suggest that we are experiencing an unusually intense UFO flap at this time.
About 200 UFO sightings are reported each month, mostly in California, Colorado and Texas, according to the Mutual UFO Network, which plans to go to the 17,000-resident town of Stephenville to investigate.
Fourteen percent of Americans polled last year by The Associated Press and Ipsos say they have seen a UFO.
