It should be noted that none of the witnesses to the formation of
lights rep[orted any planes in that area AS THE LIGHTS CAME ON.
No planes seen by eyes, or radar means either they were totally
unlighted (very unlikely possibly illegal and very dangerous) or
they weren't there, period.

Lets look at ALL the facts, not just a few or one at a time.
