MSNBC interviews Nick Pope
I find it odd that it has such a conventional explantion. I thought people have been seeing these "strange lights" for days! According the youtube
(in the above link) MSNBC reports that the FFA already issued a statement saying the lights don't match up with commercial flight paths...?
No, they didn't say flight paths. They said the light patterns "seem different". The news wire reported on the FAA addressing the reported light
patterns being witnessed, not that flight paths didn't match up with the objects. In fact, that wasn't addressed in the initial reports.
Additionally, (and possibly I should have just made one long post above), I live near a small, commercial airport, almost directly north of one.
Mostly small planes, helicopters, and private jets. I'd like to share an experience that I have had that is similar to this.
I had recently moved here, so my location in relation to the airport was a new one. On a clear summer night, my fiance and I were outside discussing
some UFO reports I had been reading (the good, oldies via FOI). Somehow we'd gotten onto the subject of abductions and what not...my mind began to
Out of the corner of my eye, to the south, I saw a twinkling light. Focusing now, what appeared to be a brilliant, yellow-orange-red light was
hovering barely on the horizon. I thought wow! that's weird, and monitored it silently as my fiance and I continued to chat.
A minute or so later, I began to notice that it was indeed moving, only slightly, a few degrees upwards every 30 seconds or so. I began to get a
little frightened. I then watched this object begin to rise much, much more rapidly. Not light speed, not mach...but more like 1 degree every few
seconds, from my perspective.
At this point I had stopped talking and listening, and my fiance took notice of the object too. Anyway, I'm rambling. To wrap up, it was in sheer
terror that I watched this UFO identify itself as an airplane approaching from the south with it's landing lights on. Only when it went overheard and
circled to land did I realize what it truly was.
I think I'll start a thread; do some creative writing on my experience. Aliens & UFOs, or My Story?
