I sincerely wish we could have had an experience up there that we couldn't explain, I would love for there to be some verifiable evidence that something out of the norm was happening up there but there wasn't for us. That wasn't for lack of trying either, Johnny had enough cameras set up (infra red, night vision, etc...) at enough angles and varying field of view distances to catch just about anything that moved in the sky or close to the ground.
I'd have figured we just weren't "enlightened enough", I could have believed that...
If what he claims is true, I volunteer to help set up a Project Hessdalen type UFO tracking station on his property so that useful science can be done. This can be done fairly inexpensively (under $500 for a basic automated tracking and recording station). I've set up meteor cameras, magnetometers and other such scientific equipment before and don't live far from the ranch. (I'm in Washington state).
Here we have somewhere which the phenomena is supposedly repeatable yet we have zero objective analysis and zero data gathering. That's a missed opportunity.
This is what UFOlogy has regressed to in 2013.
"Oh look at the pretty lights in the sky!"
Which is all well and good for the "UFOs as entertainment" crowd but it does nothing for the "UFOs as a serious subject worthy of scientific investigation" people.
Though, from what I've heard, I suspect that he is probably somewhat hostile to the idea of gathering anything which can be analyzed later in much the same way people who claim to be psychics are when asked to scientifically test their abilities.
What is his prediction for 2014? Can anyone summarize please?
