Oh no... here it goes. In the past, I generally regarded Greer as kind of a harmless person who was in the business to only discredit himself. Now it
appears that he would like to discredit anyone who's ever been even remotely interested in the Alien and UFO phenomenon. This is getting old.
HOWEVER, I will post a practical reply for people who genuinely want to see some crazy stuff.
1. Get out of the city. I mean at least by 100 miles. This will get you away from light pollution and perhaps authority who wish to intervene on your
night watch. Stay away from highways and any artificially created light source. (Rent a car, borrow a tent or get one second hand, a few cans o'
beans and a bunson burner, no special multi-thousand dollar membership required). Don't go to a commercial or family camp ground, again, the
objective is to get away from as much as you can.
2. Get a hold of some night vision goggles. Gen2 military spec goggles are getting cheaper, so if you can afford to go for them, buy them. If you can
afford more, go Gen3. In the absence of a load of cash, you could try something like this: www.youtube.com...
, however you
won't get anywhere near the fidelity of a multi-thousand dollar pair of NVG's (for obvious reasons).
Your consumer grade digital camera will NOT take decent photographs at night. If you want to take a decent STILL shot with low light, they are OK, but
not for moving objects in total darkness. Otherwise, don't even bother. You're going to end up with a bunch of shots that don't look like anything
and have no point of reference (which most UFO shots lack).
3. Don't bring booze, psychotropics, hallucinogens or any other fun stuff, if you want to share the story, this kind of stuff will kill your
So if you are a skeptic, a "believer", or you just want to see some rad stuff, do something like this. If anything you will see a meteor shower that
was not likely on the evening news (they happen all the time, everywhere, and simply can't be seen inside city limits). If you get lucky you'll see
some stuff that defies logic and will haunt your thoughts from now on. I for one was sort of on the fence until I did just this. If you can't get
NVG's chances are you're going to see some cool stuff anyway. It seems that our "atmospheric" traffic has picked up considerably in the last few
years (in my experience anyway).
In all seriousness though, true disclosure is going to come from the broader public that does not wish financial gain, only that the truth be told.
Stay clear of people who claim they can provide you with a genuine "alien" or "UFO" experience.
For those of you who care, I chose Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada for my first remote location, the Canadian Rockies near Lake Louise Alberta for my
second. There's no doubt in my mind that if everyone who was on the fence endeavored to do something like this, we'd have a lot more people asking
the hard questions. Take care all!
