I've felt for a while that this is the single strongest case on
record of what Mark Cashman calls the "Objectively Existing
Hypothesis". Based on these reports, something mainstream
science knows nothing of was definitely there.

The repeated sequence: headlights off, engine dies, headlight
on, car can start, I had not seen before. I had wondered how
precisely we knew that the electrical interference was tightly
correlated with the presence of the object or objects. My only
concern is: do we have the reports/signed statements to back
this up? Or could blanks have been 'filled-in' by Hynek's
enthusiasm? I know he was a careful scientist, but this is so
crucial I'd prefer not to depend on his infallibility.

My other concern is the disparity in appearance between the
"flaming torpedo" and the "huge egg".
