Witnesses claim F-16s chased flying saucer across Texas skies
Dozens of eyewitnesses have reported seeing a mile-long UFO being pursued by fighter jets last week in the small town of Stephenville, Texas. "It was very intense bright lights ... and they spanned a wide area," said one woman.
Fox News interviewed Peter Hartinger of the Roundtown UFO Society in Ohio, who was reluctant to offer any conclusions but called the reports "interesting" and said that members of the Mutual UFO Network will be going down to check them out.
NBC News spoke with County Constable Lee Roy Gaitan, who offered a somewhat different description. "I saw two red glows," he said. "They glowed and then they kind of faded and glowed again. ... I thought, boy, that's just not right." Gaitan described the lights changing color, dancing around, and finally shooting away at an incredible speed. "I never seen anything like that, never," he concluded.
However, the Associated Press quoted Gaitan as saying, more cautiously, "I didnít see a flying saucer and I donít know what it was, but it wasnít an airplane, and Iíve never seen anything like it, I think it must be some kind of military craft ó at least I hope it was."
