The eyewitnesses who claim to have spotted a highly unusual object or craft
in the sky near Stephenville, Texas, recently seem to be credible, as are
many such witnesses.
According to the Associated Press, "several dozen" local residents observed
"a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast."
These witnesses included "a pilot, county constable and business owners,"
the AP reported.
People from other small towns in the region reportedly also claimed to have
spotted the object in the past few weeks.
Over the decades of first-hand reports about unusual flying objects,
witnesses have included current or former military personnel, peace
officers, pilots and other reliable citizens.

For example, in 2007, former Arizona governor Fife Symington, a former Air
Force officer and pilot, stated he had seen the 1997 "Phoenix Lights" object
– a huge triangle or boomerang-shaped object that cruised low and slow over
Arizona and the metropolitan Phoenix area one evening.
The object sighted near Stephenville was a mile long and half a mile wide,
according to pilot and businessman Steve Allen. "It was positively,
absolutely nothing from these parts," Allen is quoted as saying.
