That's the "old" firefly. Actually, the term has more recently been applied to several projects and even non-aircraft aerial phenomenon well
beyond the 60's, which, admittedly adds to the confusion.
For example, one such reference is from former-astronaut John Glenn (and others since -he started it) about small, luminous, rapidly moving lights
buzzing his space capsule. Other pilots and such have also reported them. Some think these are just manifestations of your own eyes/brain when the
human body undergo certain physical stresses (kind of like seeing ‘stars’ when you get dizzy or hit your head).
More recently the term has been applied to several 'black' project aircraft, including some of the triangular-shaped craft often reported here at
ATS and elsewhere. Lately, the "Firefly" moniker has been more directly referring to experimental and 'black' aircraft that have certain lighting
configurations on their outer hulls that are manipulated to appear in varying combinations to those on the ground.
Firefly - A Triangular NATO 'Black Ops' craft
, although already 15-20
years in development is likely already operational. Like the old SR-71, and the U-2 before it, it is common for these black projects go 'live' and
operational years - even decades - before the general public even hears of them.
Unrelated, but possibly significant, there have been some references to some of the 'sprites' and other insect-like anomalies that have been buzzing
campers and hikers. Seceda has reported extensively on them. Anyway - I hear/read some witnesses referring to these phenomena as 'fireflies' as
well - which, when added to black aircraft, and astronaut 'firefly' sightings and references, merely makes a 'firefly' bucket just that much
Thanks - and keep looking up!
