Subject: Great News Segment About North Carolina UFOs

There's a nice TV news segment about the recent North Carolina
UFOs, available online at:


It's a good clip because I think it is indicative of what's been
going on so far this year, with the large number of sightings
making it to news coverage. We have the witness who's convinced
it's aliens. The expert astronomer who dismisses it quickly, the
reasonable explanations, the tapes of 911 calls, the comparison
with other cases, etc.

I find it fascinating that after many years of media ignoring
and failing to report UFO stories, suddenly it's spreading like
wildfire across the country (and around the world, judging by
the news from places like Singapore, Mexico and South America).
When the O'Hare case made CNN, it was obvious that UFOs are news
again. But I'm not sure why.

In the case in North Carolina, the 911 calls were about what is
certainly a bolide, exactly like the astronomy prof says. The
cell phone image is a bit harder to figure out, but still seems
explainable. The Hawaii contrail is not at all mysterious, yet
is added to the story as an included visual.

This makes me wonder why we're getting news stories about
bolides, jet contrails and Saturn. It doesn't help when we get
enthusiastic UFO buffs talking about alien spaceships when the
observed UFO is obviously a bolide, like the earlier North
Carolina report:


This only gives debunkers material to use for their arguments
that there's nothing to UFOs and that ufologists don't know
anything about astronomy or how to investigate UFO reports.
