Hello again Mike!
I just talked with them a moment ago and they said they would be willing to come over here and check it out. It might be a few hours, maybe even
tomorrow. I believe they are gonna visit the site and the thread, to make sure it isn't some sort of ruse or other exploitation.
Once they realize there are like minded members here, who truly do want a friendly discussion with them, they will probably come on in and join the

Admittedly I don't know much more than the average ATS'er, but I do like the intrigue and the fact that it is one of the largest, if not the largest
ongoing mass sighting I am aware of.
I had the same thought about the cameras earlier. I don't think I would have immediately thought to pick up a camera. It was 1997 and back then people
would actually help someone injured in a car wreck, instead of filming them while they bleed out... all for youtube views, sheesh...
You are right, I do not believe cameras were as widely available, if they were even on cell phones back then. There were disposable cameras, but
digitals were not common. We still used film and the cameras were always in a 'camera bag' in the closet, ready for the next vacation.
I think some people forget the technological disparity between then and now, maybe because it doesn't really seem that long ago... we were still in
the era of beepers and 166mhz desktop computers!
I'll let you know if I hear anything else from them, if they do not enter the thread first. Hopefully they'll be around soon enough.
