Witnesses ranged from the typical housewife to a veteran from the Korean War. Another account described the sighting as a blue-green craft that was shaped like an egg. It was said to have quickly transformed into a fireball before lifting into the air and vanishing without a trace.
Amongst the 40 local residents of Stephensville, Texas to report seeing a UFO, a local amateur civilian pilot and a police officer were some of the witnesses who believed something unknown took to the sky on January 8, 2008. Some believe that a UFO hovered over the farming community for close to five minutes before streaking away into the night sky. When National Public Radio spoke to police officer Lee Roy Gaitan, he told them that he was walking to his car when he saw a “luminous object that reminded him of pictures of erupting volcanos.” The object was reported to have reached 3,000 feet in the air.

When Wilmington, Delaware residents looked into the evening sky on July 13, 1860, they spotted a pale blue light that just didn’t look right. In the sky, they saw something that measured 200 feet long that streaked along on a level course around 100 feet above the ground. Behind the unexplainable sight, three “red and glowing balls” trailed in 100-foot intervals. In time, a fourth object quickly joined the trio after closing in out from the rear of the main object. People described the sight as releasing sparkles that resembled the way a rocket moved. The object in the front of the pack turned towards the southeast direction and passed over the Delaware River. It then headed straight east until no one could see it again. The entire sight was thought to have lasted one minute. News of the incident appeared in the Wilmington Tribune on July 30, 1860.
