Damn shame this. I guess this frees up people to investigate ley lines, nessie, and ghosts more. I think its rotton bad luck that the aliens are not
playing ball and showing up more. Are the British scaring them off?
It may only be a small, translucent green gleam on the horizon, but there are signs of a crisis in UFO-spotting. Chris Parr, coordinator of the
Cumbrian branch of the British UFO Hunters, sent a shiver through the hearts of ufologists with his announcement this week that his group may be
forced to wind up. There don't seem to be any UFOs in Cumbria any more.
Or maybe there just aren't any spotters. Parr's statement seemed to leave both possibilities open. "In Cumbria we have gone from 60 UFO sightings
in 2003 to 40 in 2004 and none at all this year. It means that the number of people keeping their eyes on the skies is greatly diminished. We are a
dying breed in this part of the country. I put it down to the end of The X Files, a lack of military exercises in the area that would produce UFO
sightings, and a lack of strange phenomena." A lack of strange phenomena or a shortage of strange people? Take your pick.
