A UFO sighting near Stephenville, Texas caused a bit of a brief stir last week and a traditional problem with UFO sightings has been sizing. Airborne objects are damn-hard to size as it could be a small object close or a big object far and getting roughly the same apparent size. One pilot swept this away by using an object metric: “It was bigger than a Wal-Mart”, said a pilot in the area. First heard during an NPR spot, text available here.
