It doesn't take any wizz-bang high falutin computer video graphics wizardry to go to the sight of a few videos, identify landmarks and draw lines on a detailed map. The program was playing a little coy with the story. The map graphics showed the views of the witnesses converging just southwest of Phoenix east of the military range. Yet they use only a single video to conclude that the lights were far west of the location indicated on the map. Bill and Tom really let me down. If the program is correct, the two see something in the sky and neither one of them think to immediately jump in a car and drive a mile or so to another high spot so that they could triangulate the sighting. Triangulation, the most powerful and accessible tool to measure most any phenomenon and yet so seldom planned for and used. Three or four widely placed people in high locations can cover a whole city. Each only needs a handy camcorder on a tripod and a telephone. Decades of unexplained aerial phenomena watching and triangulation remains only a footnote or afterthought. Am I just being dense here? Where could the depths of paranoia take me? March 14, 1997, triangulation quickly tells the many ufo experts that the lights appeared over the military range. Huddling in a dark Italian bar, in whispered conversations, they swear an oath of allegiance to never mention triangulation... After all aren't we constantly reminded here on this mail list how easily ufologist come together for their own self interest. (Ow, I am killing myself. Somebody stop me...) So, anyway, where are those triangulation maps from all those March 13 videos??? Triangulation... Bye... Ted..
