The rest of this nonesense was snipped.

Anyway thanks Brain for a great laugh. It's amazing how someone
can run off 600 or 700 words on pure nonsense without seeing
themselves how foolish it is. Meteors flying horizontally for
long periods of time, weaving in and out of mountains.

Where do some of these rocket scientists come from? Come on
Phil. Jesus did you ever read the reports? Do you know even a
tiny amount about the behaviour of meteors? And this was on the
SETI List?!!
