By 33tv.comAre the possible UFO sightings starting again near Stephenville? A family in the tiny town of Walnut Springs thinks so. Twenty-year-old Matt Collins showed us where he and his family saw a strange object hovering above a hill about four miles from their home.
" I think it was some type of craft," Collins said.
Collins grabbed his camera and shot this video of the object. In video it just looks like a bright light in the dark sky drifting slowly from side to side and up and down. All the while it was changing colors. Does Matt think he saw a UFO?
Collins said, " Yes and no. I don't believe in aliens or anything but I do believe there's stuff out there that we can't explain." Matt says with the naked eye the object looked like it had mass, not just a ball of light. Matt called his sister and mother so they could also witness the phenomenon. Actually, his sister had seen it first on Thursday night.
Ashley Collins said, " What I saw was three lights. There was two on top and one on the bottom. Then the two on top disappeared."
Last night the family watched the bright object for 15 minutes and they weren't afraid. " I think we were too curious and interested and we were hoping it would stay around a little longer and get close so we could get to see it better," said Matt's mother Sharla Collins.
According to a Sheriff's dispatcher, four other people around Walnut Springs reported seeing the object this weekend. The accounts were very similar to those last year that thrust nearby Stephenville into the national spotlight. Several people produced images of those sightings. A teenager from Dublin, Texas showed us video of a possible UFO last October.
At the Collins home, watching Matt's video has become quite a pasttime, as well as wondering what on Earth it is. Matt Collins said, " I believe it's something that needs to be looked at."
