A quick response...for a tangible object to make a literal right angle turn requires either zero mass, zero inertia, or an infinite amount of acceleration. It's been a while since I worked out the math on that one but it's a first or second semester physics problem.
So maybe if UFOs are real, that is a hint! I don't buy infinite power, so maybe they're massless, or inertia-less, or not *quite* making a right angle turn.
Anyway, how can a thing made of matter seem to be inertia-less or mass-free?
Maybe there's where your glow comes in, something like that is bound to take a lot of power, and atoms of gas entering and leaving the field might be excited and fluoresce. Or they might become massless, accelerate to hellacious speeds and then whack into 'normal' air when leaving the field, giving up their energy in fluorescence. Either way, it would require energy from the field or whatever-it-is and would be a constant "leak". Too bad no-one's gotten a good spectrogram of one, I'd expect to get more energy distribution in the radio and IR bands if that were true, with a smattering up and down the spectrum.
I'll get around to looking at your film as soon as I can, I think I still owe you one on another film I didn't get a chance to look at either. And I owe Lear a letter or two to be sent that I'm way overdue on. (sigh) Thank God it's spring break, not that I get one, maybe I can push some of the backlog off the table here at work and do some of the fun stuff on ATS I haven't had a chance to get to. It's a pain in the butt to work full time and do school as well. And I keep expecting the kids to say "Who is that strange man, Mommy?" any day now.
