I took the train downtown on Friday morning to stay over with some friends for a while and watch the Cubs game. I left just after the ET debate ended
and so still had a lot of that BLUE BOOK stuff (especially the Washington sightings of 1952) on my mind... So, I brought along my physical copy of the
BB 'unknowns'. Well, after the Cubs fried the fishies last night, I brought up the UFO issue and passed those reports around the room. Well.. In
short, even the skeptics were pretty darn baffled by some of those close-up sightings that included evidence like radar returns...
So, at any rate, the next day we were down on the museum campus (Adler, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Grant Park+ Soldier Field) and had a few hours
to spare so we dropped by the planetarium. Seeing that the film they were about to show was called "The Search for Alien Planets", one friend
suggeste dthat I might like to watch it...
...So, the show (a sorta IMAX deal) was what you'd expect, for the most part... It was all about interferometers and wobbling stars (though the
narration was annoyingly set-up as a conversation with a little kid) and featured interviews with one of the scientists (I believe his name is
Darcey/Darci?) who has discovered many extra-solar planets... However, at the end, the movie asked if 'anyone out there' in the audience was willing
to try to discover aliens AT THE MOMENT THE HEAD OF A GREY/GRAY APPEARED ON THE SCREEN. Now, throughout the show they had funny bits where aliens
with dinosaur heads (in toy form) appeared in the film, but the way the grey was presented at the end was very interesting... in that only the face
was used and the film took on a 'this is what you might find' tone. What also makes this interesting was that the film was presented by a respected
public institution and involved interviews with serious scientists.
I'm not saying that this was anything like disclosure, nor do i wish to imply that it was the academic world tipping the public as to what is going
on... as it was nothing like that... I just find it very interesting that the planetarium would show a film that used the standard grey form as an
example of what we could expect to encounter, as most academic institutions stay very far away from any research that involves greys/UFOs or the idea
that the beings people report in CE3 experiences are real.
