I can tell you that I've personally witnessed "unknown objects" that were not visible except in the spectrum of Infrared with the use of
night-vision devices. I can also relate that after numerous recordings and viewing it gets easier to discern between what is a bug, bird, bat, plane
and 'shooting star' with or without the use of an IR device.
I can tell you I have several associates that are having great success with the use of Gen-3 and 4 goggles and scopes. When we view the night skies we
tape objects that move (excluding birds, bugs, bats, etc.), and yes this even includes satellites. Now you may ask why satellites? We in the past few
years have after analysis learned that many of what we thought were satellites were in fact some other type of objects. As to what we don't know but
we theorize that they are most likely crafts. We make this conjectured claim because we can not for the life of us figure out how one, two or groups
of distant moving objects can suddenly stop, turn, change trajectory and appear to actually engage with one another.
Now don't get me wrong, we have recorded our share of satellites too, and they all maintain a certain speed and trajectory with no deviation. These
are easy for us to dismiss. But the others, well... even if we dragged some of you "Armchair analyst" with us, I think you'd have a hard time
dismissing what we've seen as simply birds, bugs, bats, etc....
I'm sure it's easy for many of you to feel more comfortable in not believing the possibility of objects and yes, even possibly squadrons of
patrolling objects just outside of earth. And if it helps you sleep any better than please... continue sitting behind your PC monitors and posting
statements along a skeptical nature. Because that reality seems to suit you just fine. But for me and the adventurous few that go out in the field to
do "real" research, we march to a different drum of reality. We remind ourselves of words spoken such as those by General MacArthur who on 12 May
1962, and delivered his speech (commonly known as the "Duty, honor, country" speech) to the cadets of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on the
occasion of his receiving the Sylvanus Thayer Award, during which he once again alluded to the possibility that mankind might someday face an
extraterrestrial foe (he had made a similar statement several years prior)..... And lets not forget President Reagan in the mid-80's on three
separate occasions mentioned threats by aliens (and more importantly that he believed "that an alien force is already amongst us"):
Ronald Reagan speaks about Aliens
We few keep in mind that the Air Force has been mandating for many many years the notion of patrolling and weaponizing Space and even created a
176-page document that offers a sweeping look at how best to expand America’s military space tool kit entitled: the "Transformation Flight Plan".

AHEM... (Johnny gets off the SoapBox)
So let me summarize by saying that I've gotten in contact with Mr. Grimsley and he has agreed to allow myself and a few others to come up to
Calistoga and witness for ourself hopefully some of this action that seems to be visible over that part of the region. I will of course be documenting
with both audio and video the event for not only myself but also as a ATSMIX special. This has been tentatively planned for the 2nd week of May.
