Another addition to January Reports:
#32.) Jan. 31: near Stephenville/Dublin, TX- on Hwy 377 1/2 mile North of Stephenville city limits, a couple witnessed 2 bright amber tinted lights headed SSW just to the West of the city of Dublin, TX. The lights soon became 4, then back to 2 and disappeared behind a treeline.
 On the evening of Jan. 30, 2009, someone in Stephenville saw odd red lights to their NW. At about that same time (or little after), I was driving on Hwy 206, headed South and saw red lights to the East (West of Stephenville), at about 3,000 ft. altitude. What a coincidence! No, they were not airplanes or helicopters. There were no usual navigation, or anti-collision lights (red, green & white). Did I mention I've been around aircraft all my life and have actually flown a plane? Well, I do know a little about aircraft and this was not anything that I am used to seeing.
Both reports can be found on the MUFON website. The original Stephenville report can be viewed at the KWTX TV website.
