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: http://tinyurl.com/333yyt 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.
