RADAR REPORT REVEALS STEPHENVILLE UFOs APPROACHED WESTERN WHITE HOUSE - CRAWFORD TX
Toronto Ontario – July 12, 2008
On Larry King Live last night radar expert Glen Schulze and Robert Powell,
MUFON Director of Research released their findings concerning UFOs in the Stephenville
Texas area in January 2008. The 77 page report is replete with data received from
the FAA, National Weather Service, nearby military bases and other official sources.
Among the expert analysis of the data received by the investigators from official sources,
charts and radar data clearly show the track of an unidentified non-military craft with
no transponder beacon vectoring towards Crawford Texas, the location of the Bush Ranch –
also known as the Western White House.
What does the report include?
- Data from the FAA
- Witness summary reports
- Over two dozen graphs and charts depicting craft movements and locations
- FOIA requests by the authors
- Responses by FOIA officials
- Denials by military officials of any existing information
- Blacked out US Air Force pilot flightlogs from 457th NASJRB Ft. Worth Tx.
- FTW Antenna Chart showing Skin-Paint Returns from 2.8 million data returns
- The unusual admission by military officials that they were "unaware of any
activity in the area" while complex FAA radar configurations picked up massive
data of unidentified craft,
…and much more for the interested reader.
The significance of this report and its implication is nothing less than astounding –
as it verifies the existence of craft of unknown origin operating in controlled air
space without the knowledge of the America military. Furthermore, it is implicit and
thus evident by the response of military officials that they were helpless or at least
lacked any significant management of the entire series of events during the period
of the air activity.
Therefore this radar report clarifies four important issues:
It supports the eye-witness testimony of many Stephenville residents who saw
what has now been proven to have actually occurred.
The report addresses and dispels on-going critique by critics that no
available, substantive or scientific data indicating anything of interest
concerning the reality of UFOs exists.
The radar report clearly demonstrates that there are in fact unknown craft
with superior flight capabilities far beyond known technology operating and
moving at will within controlled air space, thus demonstrating that it appears
our most sophisticated craft and military monitoring devices are ineffective
in dealing with the phenomenon.
Only two possibilities now remain. These craft are either highly sophisticated
secret human technology or they are craft from off-world origins. In either case –
each possibility is an enigma and the skeptics and military are running short of explanations.
This entire series of events and the depth of the report raise another serious and
as yet unanswered question: "Considering the proximity of the craft to controlled
air space near the Bush property, is there any access to information that NORAD or
other missile launch control centres were placed on alert during this period?"
Exopolitics Toronto will be following this situation very closely.

Radar study supports witnesses in Stephenville
By ANGELIA JOINER
- Stephenville Lights Reporter
A radar study recently released supports eight witness reports of an unidentified
object in Stephenville, Texas, and the surrounding area on January 8, 2008.
Robert Powell, MUFON national
research director, and Glen Schulze, retired radar
analyst, have labored hundreds of hours analyzing 2.8 million bits of Freedom of
Information Act requested raw radar data from five FAA towers between the hours
of 4 - 8 p.m. surrounding the Dublin/Stephenville, Texas area.
Dozens of Erath County residents reported seeing an object or lights in the sky
at separate locations and the story quickly made national and international news.
The study may make even the most hardnosed skeptic scratch his head.

THE STEPHENVILLE LIGHTS RE-VISITED - ANOTHER LARRY KING LIVE SPECIAL ON UFOs
Toronto Ontario – July 11, 2008
A reminder to watch Larry King Live tonight as he presents more news
about the Stephenville Lights (February 2008). Tune in to Larry King Live
tonight Friday July 11 at 9:00 ET/6:00 PT on CNN.
FOR CANADIAN and INTERNATIONAL VIEWERS
Exopolitics Toronto encourages all Canadians and international viewers in
receipt of this media release to consider sending in a question to Larry King’s guests tonight.
Mr. King will interview Angelia Joiner about the Stephenville Lights investigation
results as well as History Channel UFO Hunters.
It is essential that the ground breaking efforts of CNN through Mr. King’s work be
recognized internationally as a clear signal as to how his Disclosure efforts are
an essential stage in the developmental progression that will soon compel other
mainstream media to engage the UFO matter.
An onslaught of international interest to CNN’s "ask a question" site will be demonstrative.
Exopolitics Toronto is certain LARRY KING LIVE will continue to address the
UFO matter – your active interest in his work will guarantee this.
THE PEOPLE’S QUESTION IDEAS
- What are the energy implications of the UFO issue for the planet?
- How can government whistleblowers be encouraged by CNN to appear on LKL to state their case?
- Can you explain why UFOs are an international matter of concern not simply an
- Has the military been given an opportunity to unequivocally state on national
television there is no government evidence about UFOs?
- Why is Mr. King and CNN covering UFOs so often? More than just news appeal?
- If there is no government or military interest in the UFO matter, I’d like to know
why there is so much secrecy surrounding documents and access to these documents
and why former military officers are threatened not to talk about their knowledge
and experience with UFOs.
- Are there current members of Congress or the Senate who are willing to step
forward on LARRY KING LIVE to demand Congressional Hearings on the UFO cover-up?
Who might they be?
- Would you please talk about why there might be a risk that intelligence agencies
may destroy important archived evidential documents about UFOs and government involvement?
- I have heard that there is evidence indicating that military factions under the
direction of senior government officials are planning a false flag operation to
create fear among the public about UFO craft or an extraterrestrial presence. Is this true?
Larry King is handing this issue over to the people – it is up to citizens to
support and extend his efforts.
Pose your own question or one of the suggested questions above now, so producers
can assess and traffic them before the program begins.
Ask Larry’ King’s guests at:
The world waited for Mutual UFO Network's (MUFON) official report on the
Stephenville unidentified flying objects.
And waited. And waited.
That was cool. That meant a lot of work was going on and State Director
Ken Cherry and Chief Investigator Steve Hudgeons were pouring through
hundreds of eyewitness accounts, plotting on maps, coordinating radar
data, and organizing field investigators.
Finally, the report was forthcoming in the May edition of the MUFON Journal.
Eagerly, those of the UFO community as well as those not so familiar began
scouring the document and Googling for news articles.
Angelia Joiner and The Stephenville Lights – and Alfred Webre - Wednesday June 4 - on the Richard Syrett Show
Toronto, ON, Canada June 2, 2008
– Angelia Joiner former staff writer for the Stephenville Empire Tribune
will join host Richard Syrett and co-host Victor Viggiani this Wednesday
June 4 on News Talk 1010 CFRB AM Toronto from 11:00 pm to midnight EST
to discuss the Stephenville Lights UFO phenomenon.
Angelia uncovered what is today considered by many one of the most puzzling
UFO events in North American history. Her eye witness interviews include
pilots, police officers and local citizens, each of whom attest to having
seen massive, solid rectangular unidentified craft hundreds of metres in
length – moving silently 270 metres above them.
Angelia Joiner tells her story about how a small town in Texas in January
of 2008 became a world focal point as their newspaper – The Stephenville
Empire Tribune – first covered the story, creating international repercussions,
and then shortly thereafter ceasing all coverage. Ms. Joiner’s less than
ceremonious departure from the Stephenville Empire Tribune portrays how,
and possibly why mainstream journalists are pressured to play-down UFO events
of high significance.
Rivaled only by the stunning Phoenix Lights of 1997 as brought to us by
Dr. Lynne Kitei in an earlier interview on the Richard Syrett Show, the
Stephenville Lights phenomenon enters the litany of UFO sightings receiving
a “no comment” from our government and military officials.
Journalists world-wide are invited to call-in to speak with Ms. Joiner.
Angelia - I'm here with Robert Emenegger and actually we're still
in the ballroom. We just finished a marathon speakers panel, didn't we Bob?
Bob - It was horrendous.
Angelia - It was at least two hours and we did get some interesting
questions but we're glad that's over, right?
Bob - Yes, it's all behind us for now.
Angelia - I first met Bob at the Ozark Conference last week and
we've already become great friends and we're having so much fun that we really
haven't talked that much about the whole UFO phenomena, right?
Bob - That's true.
Angelia - Okay, so tell me how you got involved in this.
Bob - Well, I don't know how much you want to know about it, but
I was the creative director of Gray Advertising in Southern California, the
Los Angeles office, and during the Nixon re-election period I was asked to be
consultant to Nixon's campaign, and I met with him. We had a couple of meetings
and decided that Nixon should stay low in television except emphasize his trip to China.
Angelia - Right.
Bob - So I had a friend who had a film studio at the same time, and
we did a couple of films that were to help the Department of Defense. One was on a
program to help young men determine whether they had an alcohol or drug problem,
believe it or not, and I had Rod Sterling as the host of that.
Angelia - Wow!
Bob - Then we worked on the show for the shuttle, reporting on the
shuttle and making people realize how little it cost to keep the shuttles going.
The next thing - we both decided - let's try and give the Department of Defense sort
of an image lift. So we went out to Norton Air Force Base because my partner had
had some dealings - I had been stationed in North Korea in much earlier years,
much earlier anyway. So we met with them and then we started discussing how the
public would feel. You know to get an idea of the positive side. I suggested, why
don't we pull up the Merrimac of the Navy (something indistinguishable) They were
doing raster research. ARPA was an Advanced Research Project Agency so they took
us to Maryland where we met with for instance a scientist who (indistinguishable)
thinking into a computer and the computer was picking up, I think they said, about
seven or eight of his words just by an attachment to his brain. He was trying to
figure out how that was possible.
Angelia - Well, this is amazing.
For the entire transcript of the interview, go
Angelia - I'm here with Dr. Lynne Kitei at The X-Conference, and this
woman has an amazing story. She has an amazing movie out, she's already had an
amazing book, and it's been great to meet her and visit with her. Now Lynne, what
brings you to this conference?
Lynne - Actually, we're so proud. This has been a labor of love and
also a work in progress for the last ...for me, it's been eleven years ...but for the
documentary, it's been for the last four years. We just signed with a wonderful
distributor, Vanguard Cinema, to get it out internationally. It's time. It wasn't
really ready before. We've added new sightings, new interviews, new data, and now
it is just such a joy to be able to share. Astronaut Edgar Mitchell is in it ..he's
wonderful..as well as a 911 police operator who has come forward recently, to say
that not only did they get hundreds of calls... but she really confirmed what thousands
of other witnesses have shared that they saw during the Mass Sighting. For anybody
who doesn't know what the Mass Sighting was, it was March 13th, 1997, while thousands
of people were outside looking purposely at the sky at the Hale-Bopp Comet, a mile
to two-mile wide triangular formation of lights appeared above them. Some people saw
lights that "seemed to be" attached to something; other people saw a craft; some people
saw a boomerang shape; others saw an arrowhead shape. The bottom line, maybe we will
never know if it was a parade of different objects throughout the state from as early
as 5 PM to 2 in the morning or if it was one object because most people saw it at a
very low altitude, going about 30 mph - some people did see it take off at a tremendous
speed. Incredible technology, to be sure. But across the board, it was totally, totally
silent. A spectacular sighting that not only has become historic in the annals of
ufology and certainly unexplained mass sightings but to this day, still unexplained.
That cannot be denied.

Arizona man claims UFO hoax By
BRIAN WEBB / KTVK-TV
An area man who does not wish to be identified claims that he was behind the mysterious phenomenon.
He told KTVK-TV that after the sun went down Monday night, he tied road flares to
four large helium-filled balloons using fishing line. Then he released the balloons
one-by-one, at one-minute intervals.
Mystery lights reported over Phoenix By
People are looking for an explanation for mysterious red lights that appeared in the
north Phoenix sky Monday night, reminiscent of a similar event 11 years ago.
Dozens of listeners called News/Talk 92-3 KTAR just after 8 p.m. reporting they were
watching the four mystery lights.
"From my position, it looked like they were just hanging, not moving at all,"
said one man, who called 92-3's "Gaydos After Dark". He said he "absolutely" saw something.
A woman caller said, "It looked like four red tower lights, but it was pretty high up
in the air. I called my husband and he said, 'Get home, what's wrong with you?'"
A man in north Phoenix told CBS-5: "They were about 3,000 feet high, approximately.
They looked as though they were kind of hovering or floating from west to east,
very slowly. They were up there for 15 or 20 minutes."
When dozens of people in Erath County, Texas spotted a half mile-long UFO in the skies
above them in January 2008, a couple of area residents turned to local history books for
clues about what happened. Located 80 miles southwest of Fort Worth, the neighboring
towns of Stephenville and Dublin lie in the very midst of what has been, historically,
a hotbed for UFO activity. In fact, it has recently come to light that 56 years before
the famous Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash of 1947, the tiny town of Dublin was the
site of a Roswell-like event, involving an aerial explosion of a UFO, followed by the
discovery of strange debris containing mysterious, undecipherable writing.
Saturday, June 13, 1891, was a quiet summer day in Dublin, which had a population of just
over 2,000 people. One of town's major industries, the Wasson & Miller flour mill
and cotton gin, had already wound down operations for the week. As evening came, a
number of local residents were outdoors near the gin, walking and otherwise enjoying
the leisurely summer weekend. Among the persons in the vicinity, the Dublin newspaper
later reported, was an unnamed "gentleman" who witnessed an event like few others in
the history of human affairs.
The unidentified man, described by the newspaper as a generally trustworthy witness,
observed a bright, oblong-shaped object hovering about 300 feet in the sky above the
gin. Although referred to as a "meteor", the UFO's strange behavior suggested that
it was something entirely different. Struggling to describe the strange object in the
terminology of an era before air travel, the witness stated that it looked
like "a bale of cotton suspended in the air after having been saturated in kerosene
oil and ignited, except that it created a much brighter light, almost dazzling those
who perceived it." While the general appearance was like a cotton bale, the observer
gave no indication of the dimensions or overall size of the object. Apparently, he
was so frightened by the UFO that he hastily withdrew from the scene before making
any sort of guess at the object's dimensions.
Especially striking about this account is the extreme intensity of light that emanated
from the UFO. A kerosene-sparked flame would certainly not be bright enough to be said
to "dazzle" viewers who stood several hundred feet away. This object, hovering in the
sky above Dublin, exhibited a "much brighter light" than a conventional fire. The
intense light may have been a sign that the air vehicle was in some kind of distress.
Perhaps a fire had broken out on board the craft or something had caused it to overheat
and build toward an explosion.
The observer noted that the dazzling object remained in the sky for an unspecified
length of time and then, with a tremendously loud sound like that of a bombshell,
the UFO suddenly exploded, violently hurtling metallic fragments of a most unusual
character to the ground below and burning to a crisp all the surrounding grass and
vegetation. The sound of the explosion was so loud that "nearly everyone in that
portion of the city" heard it, according to the newspaper.
Open Minds Expeditionary Field Team
came from near and far to converge on
Ricky Sorrells' property near Dublin, Texas, in hopes of encountering the object that he claims
frequently visits his place and the surrounding area in Erath County.
The team formed more than a month ago after receiving an invitation from Sorrells. And, finally,
the plan came to fruition and the members have been sky watching throughout the area since April 4, 2008.
Sorrells is hoping someone can get a glimpse of what he has seen several times and has
never been able to identify. He's hoping someone will go on the record with him because
the one friend with him when a sighting occurred is not willing to do so.
"I just want someone else to see what I've seen," Sorrells said. "That's why I invited the
people from the Open Minds Forum to come down. I hope we can get lucky and they can see it, too."
Sorrells first made news when Angela K. Brown of the Associated Press interviewed him
at his heavily wooded property on January 14, 2008. Within a few hours, Sorrells
unexpectedly found himself on news channels everywhere.
This is an historic day in the field of UFO investigation for an aspiring group of
online forum members. It may also prove important as well for the UFO resarch world.
They are known as OMEFT...
Open Minds Expeditionary Field Team.

Joiner previously reported that more than one officer captured images of an unidentified
object in the sky on the videocameras mounted on patrol car dashboards.
In this new account by an officer who requested to remain anonymous because of his
professional duties and responsibilities, Joiner reports that, "He said he was unable
to position his dash cam in a way that video footage could be taken, but he did manage
to lock it in on radar."
Three Erath County lawmen observe 'one big craft'
By ANGELIA JOINER
- Stephenville Lights Reporter
Note: Recently, a computer composite by a law enforcement officer in Erath County
was posted on this site. The sighting was on January 8, 2008, between 7:30 and 8 p.m.
The officer does not wish to be identified for reasons you will find further down
in the story. For writing purposes the officer will be identified as Officer X.
Officer X is one more witness in an intriguing story now known around the world as
'The Stephenville Lights.' Some are saying the Stephenville event is the most significant
UFO sighting since
'The Phoenix Lights'
more than a decade ago.
These officers didn't see just lights - they saw a craft. A craft they cannot explain
or identify - something that looked like it was under intelligent control - something
that maneuvered in a way that they had never seen.
"I want people to know that the citizens are telling the truth," Officer X said.
"They're not lying. They are telling the truth. There was something there. I think it's
stealthy. It has a stealth capability. I think it can change colors with the sky. It was
as dark as the sky until it lit up."
None of these officers were together at the time of the sighting and collectively
they believe the object was visible for about thirty minutes. Officer X was
on duty in a patrol car, while another officer had just finished his shift
and was on his way home, and still another was off duty at his residence.
Officer X was traveling on the Stephenville South Loop, at the intersection of Lillian
Street, when something in the sky caught his attention as he was looking north
in the direction of the Erath County Courthouse. He said the night was clear and
there was hardly any wind.
"My estimate is the object was about a half mile away at the most," Officer X said.
"At first, I thought it was a big aircraft, but then I realized it was hovering.
I then thought, 'An aircraft that size doesn't hover.' It was so big it would have
fallen from the sky just hovering like that. It stretched from the courthouse almost
to Jake and Dorothy's Café, or about two blocks. The diagram I did shows 400 feet, but
looking back, I think it was larger, maybe between 500 and 600 feet."
Erath County Law Enforcement Officers compile drawings

By ANGELIA JOINER - Stephenville Lights Reporter
Note: The following composite and narrative came to this reporter through
Erath County Constable Lee Roy Gaitan.
An area law enforcement officer, not wishing to be identified at this time,
writes the account in his own words. The sighting date was January 8, 2008,
and the time was between 7:30 and 7:45 p.m. according to Constable Gaitan.
No other information is available at this time.

"This is what I and several other officers saw. I did not see the back,
only the frontal view. The two large lights were bright like landing lights,
but solid light blue in color similar to LED. The wing tip lights remained steady.
The top and bottom tower lights strobed sporadically. It had three towers
on the bottom and two on top. It was bigger than a B1 Bomber. It lumbered
around town then headed off towards Mineral Wells. It did not leave fast like some
are saying. It left slowly. I saw it make a turn. It turned slightly at a 30
degree angle and stayed there for a moment with no movement. It then went to 90
degrees, added a large light in the middle, and moved off at 27 mph and accelerating.
I had to go to a call at this time. On the way, I could see it leaving in the
distance. It was about 500 ft off the ground. The colors above are the actual color.
This drawing is a compilation of all the law enforcement that saw the craft."
On the afternoon of January 9, Ken Cherry, the 61-year-old owner of a prosperous
Tarrant County securities firm, was sitting in his home office, studying various
stock market reports flitting across his computer screen, when line two rang. Line
one is devoted to customers and brokers. Line two is the UFO phone.
Cherry is the Texas state director of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the country's
oldest and largest UFO investigation group. He supervises a staff of 41 certified
MUFON investigators in the state. These men and women spend their free time interviewing
people who have written in to the MUFON Web site or called one of its numbers claiming
to have seen a UFO. In an average month, the Texas chapter of MUFON receives between
fifteen and twenty such reports. Most of them sound like what Cherry heard on
January 9: A woman outside Stephenville, seventy miles southwest of Fort Worth,
said she and her teenage son had seen some flashing lights in the sky the previous
evening. Cherry asked a few questions and hung up. Since the woman had described
seeing the lights for only a few seconds, he didn't figure this would be anything
other than a typical sighting.
Then line two rang again. A Stephenville man was calling to say that he had seen
something strange the night before: a single bright light hovering over the
treetops near his home. Curious, Cherry logged in to the
MUFON Web site, where
he saw several reports waiting for him, all from residents of the Stephenville
area who had seen strange lights on the night of January 8. The next day, Cherry
read a front-page story in the Stephenville Empire-Tribune about four more area
residents who had seen something in the sky on January 8. One of them was
Steve Allen, the president and owner of a trucking company in the nearby town
of Glen Rose. Allen also happens to be a licensed pilot, comfortable with
judging aircraft and flight patterns from the ground, and what he described
nearly took Cherry's breath away: flashing lights covering a distance of a
mile in length and half a mile in width at an altitude of about 3,500 feet.
The lights, Allen said, were "totally silent" and had been racing around the
sky at about 3,000 miles per hour until they suddenly turned into
"burning flames . . . white in color." Within seconds, the flames had
disappeared and there was nothing left to see. But approximately ten minutes
later, the lights reappeared, this time traveling to the east. Allen added,
"Two military jets, possibly F-16's, were in pursuit."
Cherry walked out of his office and down the hall to find his wife, who's
the operations manager for his securities business and answers line two
when he's not there. "Dear," he said, "we might be on to something big."
The Stephenville Event, as some have called it, has quickly become one of the
most publicized UFO sightings in a decade. The story showed up in newspapers
as far away as China. CNN's Larry King devoted two shows to what it all meant.
"Do you believe alien beings are out there?" King teased, staring intently
at the camera, forehead glistening. "Do you believe they've come to Earth?"
Stephenville resident David Coran's videotape of UFO symbols made it's way onto
the Internet on March 5, 2008. The video briefly appeared on YouTube and was
then removed but not before it made its way to other Web sites.
At the time of filming, Coran lived near Clark Field, the local airport.
It is not clear as to the date of filming due to Coran filming on two
consecutive nights, which were January 19 and 20, 2008.
Angelia Joiner interviewed Coran and his story appeared in the

Zimmerman was assigned to protect Governors Briscoe, Clements, White, Richards
and Bush for a period spanning 19 years.
"Clements was governor twice," he said.
To date, Zimmerman may be the most credible witness to come forward to report what
Erath County residents have been coming forward in droves to report since
January 8 -- another unidentified flying object.
He said it was 6:05 a.m. on January 31 when he awoke from a peaceful slumber for a
Mother Nature call. As he was returning to bed, something caught his eye through
the bedroom window of his home located just past the city limits on U.S. Highway 281
South in Stephenville, Texas.
"I saw three bright lights," Zimmerman said. "Two white lights were grouped closer
together and higher and the third one was closer to the horizon. That one was a was
a reddish orange color."
Zimmerman shared a sketch and notes he had jotted down.
