UFOs have also been seen near Victoria and Corpus Christi the night of the Stephenville sightings.

Tuesday, January 22, 2008-The flurry of Unidentified Flying Objects spotted near Stephenville earlier this month extended to San Antonio and UFO's were also spotted over Victoria and as far south as Corpus Christi, 1200 WOAI's Bud Little has learned.
Some 200 people reported seeing UFO's over Stephenville, in Erath County southeast of Dallas on the evening of January 8th. But Walter Andrus Junior, the co-founder of the Mutual UFO Network, says the same night, unidentified objects were spotted in the skies over San Antonio, visible in the western sky and reported by observers at Interstate 10 and Wurzbach Road, on the northwest side.
"They say a large, cigar shaped object in the western sky," Andrus said. "It had many lights on it, from front to back."
Andrus says MUFON will talk with people in San Antonio, as well as in Victoria and near Corpus Christi, who also saw the objects that night. He says it's a lot easier to get statements out of people about UFO's today than when he helped start MUFON in the 1970s, because what is referred to as the 'laughter curtain' which painted people who said they saw UFOs as cranks or worse, has been lifted.
"The lights were so bright that it was difficult to estimate the size of the object," Andrus says about the UFO sightings over Texas.
He says a complete report on the sightings may not be completed until the end of 2008.
