Levelland is perhaps most famous for being the site of several major UFO sightings in November of 1957. Several people saw a large egg-shaped object emit a strange blue light, which caused all the automobiles in the area to shut off at the same time, and among the eyewitnesses to the event were the town sheriff and the fire chief. The city today is a major cotton and industrial town, as it has historically been since its founding.
