To Mark and the List:

There's no doubt that the series of sightings in the vicinity of
Levelland, Texas on the night of November 2/3, 1957 were one of
the most dramatic in American UFO history.

There's also no doubt that since the official investigation was
poorly conducted, the resultant explanation(s) cannot be taken
seriously. But, your statement that "the concentration was not
followed by a drawn out series of similar accounts over the
following days..." needs clarification.

The fact is that several similar cases DID occur in the
Texas/New Mexico area in the following days. Also, that various
vehicle E-M cases were a feature of this wave.

It should also be noted that misidentifications of Venus as a
"UFO" were rampant during this period. Also, that the late Dr.
J. Allen Hynek did NOT view this as a real UFO wave.

Still, this period of UFO history is one of the more fascinating
on record.
