Terry,

Thanks for the information. I looked at Joe's web site; what I
saw seems to fall somewhere in between his "insect," "white" and
"spear" categories. What I saw had a shape somewhat like:

             ____
   _________/    \___
  |                  \         ---->
  |_________      ___/
            \____/


But I saw it so briefly I'm not sure of any of the angles on it,
but it had anguler corners, not rounded ones. Its perfect
bilateral symmetry stood out.

Thanks for your note too, Greg (St. Pierre). I don't know what to
think if you get quite a few potential rods on just a 45-min.
video tape the first or second times you try it, while most of us
go all our lives without seeing one. It could only mean, if
they're the real things, that they behave like other UFOI and
show themselves only when and to whom they wish.
