Steve Hudgeons with MUFON will present the results of his investigation of the Stevenville, Texas, UFO sighting in January some time in March.
Steve Hudgeons, Mutual UFO Network assistant state director for Texas, released a media brief yesterday that promised a formal news conference in March at the Dublin Rotary Club Building. The Dallas Fort Worth MUFON chapter and Hudgeons will present information Hudgeons gathered during a late January trip to Stephenville, Texas, after UFO sightings had been reported there earlier in the month.
“The media will be invited to hear the results of our investigations,” Hudgeons wrote.
Hudgeons also reported that the DFW chapter has reserved the Dublin Rotary Building on Feb. 23 for additional witnesses to the Jan. 8 UFO sighting. “We . . . hope to see those that didn’t attend [the Stephenville follow-up investigation] or were unable to attend the Jan. 19th meeting,” Hudgeons wrote.
“We further ask that the Media NOT attend this meeting. We appreciate the new -found sincerity of the Media of late, however, 50 or so years of media ridicule hasn't been forgotten and has caused many witnesses to shy away from our investigations.”
The Air Force Reserve released a statement on Jan. 23 claiming the bright lights and UFOs spotted in Stephenville had really been ten of their F-16 fighter jets on a nighttime training mission. This information contradicts their earlier denying of activity in the area.
