Our source describes the object as "Gray", Shiny, almost the same color as the clouds, aproximately 20 feet wide (diameter), "a fat disk, like an
M&M" (Take THAT Reese's pieces! Sorry, ET, I couldn't resist.)
So, we're dealing with what might be a relatively small craft with what might be a mirrored surface? Or perhaps some form of semi-effective "visual
stealth"? I find the observer's description of the object being"hard to focus on" to be an interesting choice of phrase.
How much do we fail to observe simply because what we would see has been made "too difficult to look at" directly? Douglas Adams once described the
phenomenon as a "Somebody Else's Problem (SEP) Field".
The relative size of the object is potentially telling as well, but I'll leave that point for others to consider.
The observer says that they all felt their hair stand on end, and that the object shot straight up. I wonder if their hair was standing on end due to
a perfectly normal adrenalin reaction (fight/flight response to a completely unfamiliar situation), or if some sort of electro-static discharge
(plasma-induced from the object perhaps?) was the cause.
Again, the object "shot straight up" punching "a big hole in the clouds" possibly from a "big shockwave". Moving that much air that fast, was
there a sonic boom?
Was there any sound from the object at all?
And now mes amis, Le "Piece De Resistance"!
Our courageous Observer has provided us with an invaluable bit of information; whether we'll ever be able to make anything of it remains to be seen,
Our observer was working on a United Airlines ramp number F12 or 14, on a particular day in November 2006 at O'Hare International during a certain
period of the the day corresponding to the appearance of this object. He reports that there was a (Boeing) 727 at that ramp, at that time, on that
day. And most importantly, he reports that;
The pilot of that 727 also observed the object and reported his observation by the plane's radio!
The information provided should make it easy for those experts in our little community of CT'ers to quickly determine the flight number of that 727.
Perhaps then an FOI-like request for the transcript of the pilot's radio transmission might be made?
At least we can, I presume, be fairly certain that a professional commercial Pilot would be authorized to report an airspace breech;
and, being aware of the potential consequences, would be most unlikely to make a False report of such a breech by his plane's radio!
