Statement: Major General De Brower
My name is Wilfried De Brouwer. I am a retired Major General of the Belgian Air Force and I was Chief Operations in the Air Staff when an exceptional UFO wave took place over Belgium. Indeed, during the evening of 29 November 1989, in a small area in Eastern Belgium, approximately 140 UFO sightings were reported. Hundreds of people saw a majestic triangular craft with a span of approximately 120 feet, powerful beaming spot lights, moving very slowly without making any significant noise but, in several cases, accelerating to very high speeds.
Statement: Oscar Huertas, Peruvian Air Force 1980
They all observed a stationary object in the sky which looked like a balloon, at about three miles distance, and approximately 1,800 feet altitude. It was luminous because it reflected the sun. My unit commander ordered me to takeoff in my Sukoi -22 jet to shoot down the spherical object. It was in restricted airspace, without clearance, and we were concerned about espionage. I approached the object and strafed sixty-four 30mm shells at it. Some projectiles went towards the ground, and others hit the object fully, but they had no effect at all. The projectiles didn’t bounce off; probably they were absorbed. The cone-shaped “wall of fire” that I sent out would normally obliterate anything in its path .
Hiya, there are some decent ideas in there. Seismic activity causes \'Earth Lights\' which dance across the sky along the tectonic plates. They can look pretty magical and open to interpretation. Then we have sunlight on clouds, ball lightning, lenticular clouds, Venus and the Moon reflected in clouds. Throw in autokinetic effects that make points of light (stars and planets) appear to move against a dark background...try it with a pinhole camera in a dark room. Oh yeah...mirages, superior mirages and temperature inversions get thrown out there too!
In just about every study into the UFO phenomena by scientists, military and serious UFO researchers they allow for these things.
In fact, they make every effort to explain reports by one of the above. In the studies there remains between 5% and 20% that can\'t be explained by anything we know of.
The trick is to try and forget about extraterrestrials and space travel. Just focus on the phenomena.
Did they count the possibility of experimental aircraft, and such?
