In the series premiere of Chasing UFOs, Ryder, Ben and James saddle up for an investigation into a close encounter of the Texas kind. Following reports of an enormous object that was spotted by dozens of people across two Texas towns, the team sets out to find an explanation. But while searching for the truth, the team has a sighting that makes them all wonder what’s really going in the Texas skies.
On Tuesday, January 2008 around 9 p.m., residents in the town of Dublin noticed a string of intensely bright lights moving in from the northeast. Witnesses said the lights began blinking and creating patterns that resembled Egyptian hieroglyphics. As the object moved over the town, those looking up said it made no noise. The object then traveled on to Stephenville, four miles west. Residents reported seeing the same lights and patterns before the craft disappeared into the night. The object was spotted by so many people it became national news, but even with the media attention there’s been no explanation for what the people of these towns saw.
After following up with some local leads, the team organizes an impromptu Town Hall. More than 30 people attend to share what they witnessed that Tuesday night. What strikes the team is how similar their accounts are. Each report seeing a string of intensely bright lights that stayed level with one another and appeared to be attached to a single object. The testimonies only ramp up the team’s curiosity and resolve to find an explanation.
Tune in tonight at 9P to the series premiere of Chasing UFOs: Texas is for Sightings to see what they find out.
