Ok thanks for attempting to bring me up to speed. My head is about explode trying to go back and catch up
I watched more of the night time footage than I did the day time stuff. I am not sold on balloons being the source of the day time sighting, although
I will admit it is within the realm of possibility. I do have a tough time thinking that hundreds of people in NYC would stop dead in their tracks to
stare at balloons. I grew up in Philadelphia, used to take trips to NY all the time as I was growing up. I can honestly tell you that city does not
stop for nothing. A car can be burning up on the sidewalk, people would walk around maybe make a comment about it, but they would keep on going about
their business. It is very tough for me to imagine everyone stopped to stare at balloons.
As far as the night time footage we watched on cam. AT first I was dead set against planes. It didnt make sense to me, but part of keeping an open
mind is not only being open to the possibility of UFO's and the unknown, but also being open to the possibility that it is nothing at all. So in
watching the footage I started imagining if it WAS a plane. If it was, what would it do?
I can honestly say some of what we saw WAS planes. If a plane were to take off at night, they do have "headlights" of sorts. So if a plane takes off
and turns toward you, the light would get brighter, if it turned away from you it would "disappear". Knowing from my numerous travels and flights, I
know for a fact that planes take off and turn. I can not think of any flight I have ever taken where a plane takes off and continues on the exact same
path, eventually they all turn and continue to climb. So I can admit some of what I saw I do believe to be planes.... some of the others however I do
not think can be explained away so easily. I recall one of those lights literally going straight up. Planes can not do that.
I have also been on planes that were "stacked" and waiting to land. Some of what I saw can be explained by stacking, some of it can not be explained
by stacking. Multiple planes at the same alt? It doesnt happen that way.
I can understand saying that since Col. Whatshisname said it would happen that people were expecting it and therefor saw something and wanted to
believe it was UFO's and so it is, but I do not think the majority of people even knew of this prediction. I am sure if you were to walk down the
street and take a poll, the majority would have no idea what your talking about. How can you explain those? Mass hysteria?
