UFO visits Hunt County — mysterious object seen by resident, deputies
By BRAD KELLAR
GREENVILLE — No one is sure exactly what it was which reportedly hovered through the Hunt County skies this past weekend, but several people said they saw something.
At least one civilian and three uniformed law enforcement officers reported seeing an unidentified flying object north of Greenville Saturday night.
Similar sightings were also reported near The Colony in Denton County, according to Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks.
Meeks said his office received the first call about the object at around 9:20 p.m. Saturday, from a woman who lives along Farm-To-Market Road 2358 near Webb Hill Country Club.
“She said it was hovering above her house,” Meeks said. “It was real bright, then it went dim, then it went bright again. Then it moved away. It was moving from that area toward Dallas.”
The witness said the object did not sound like an aircraft or a helicopter and noted one of her relatives in The Colony also reported seeing a similar phenomenon later that night. And, they were not alone.
“Three of my officers also saw a bright light,” Meeks said, including the deputy who first responded to the sighting. “The officer who got the call was pretty close to Campbell.”
Meeks said he personally checked with L-3 Communications Integrated Systems, the local defense contractor who operates out of Majors Field Municipal Airport in Greenville.
“They said they did not have anything in the air that night,” Meeks said.
