Stephenville Incident Revisited - Updated


Video Link

Video of recorded radar data, animated by the RADARplot application.
Shows 2 hours (at approx x50 speed) of the data from the Stephenville 2008 incident (3 of 5 radars).
Original data files can be found at:

Aircraft with transponders are shown as green (above 5000') and blue (below 5000'). Primary radar returns that don't correlate with a transponder are shown in white.

The Schulze-Powell track begins at 18:51 at the top right corner of the Brownwood MOAs and moves towards PCR Crawford. Although intermittent, a cumulative plot shows a definite track. Other interesting anomalies are present.

RADARplot is a freeware application. Recorded radar data can be stored in various formats which need to be converted before animation is possible.

A new view of Stephenville

Devoid- Mutual UFO Network’s radar analysis of the watershed Stephenville incident has been languishing in obscurity for nearly four years. But recently, a British computer programmer’s animated reconstruction of that data has brought the mystery into sharper visual focus.

Applying a program that duplicates conversions used by air accident investigators, Rob Jeffs has bundled the 2.8 million radar returns MUFON acquired from five FAA and National Weather Service sites, and recreated moving images of the air traffic over central Texas from 4-8 p.m. on Jan. 8, 2008.

Assessment and conclusion? 

People saw something in the skies over Stephenville, on January 8, 2008.  The objects appeared on radar.  At least one object made a beeline for President Bush's home in Crawford, Texas, which was and is restricted airspace.  And during this whole thing, jets were flying all over the place.

We all know that secrets are kept but...

The gist of it all: If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. -SW

  1. Thank you for helping to spread the word. It's difficult raising awareness regarding the practical use of recorded radar data.
    The original Schulze-Powell analysis was completed manually, and was very time consuming, however, hopefully I've demonstrated that automated extraction/conversion of data and automated plotting are feasible - adding a new tool to the ufologist's kit.
