I definitely don't have any reason _not_ TO believe in the sincerity of someone who seems to be legimately seeking for an explanation to what he claims to have witnessed with his teenager kid. Specially if you consider that the person in question made sure that I understood, from the very beginning of our exchange of e-mails, that he DOES NOT believe in "UFO stories" and wants no publicity whatsoever about his sightings, completely refusing to have his name published. Plus, he has also refused my offers to send an engineer to talk to him about the experience, as he is an engineer himself and could feel more comfortable with a colleague taking seriously his accounts. He doesn't seek any benefit from his story at all and at this moment he is even refusing to keep the e-mail exchange we started. Plus, those questions of yours about the images, suspecting that he could have used a tripod to make the video etc, seem exaggerated. If the images were very good in quality and had a really outstanding "revelation", than I could speculate that he could have faked them and start wondering how he did so. But being the images so poor, so unsophisticated etc, why would he bother to fake something like that? Specially if he is gaining nothing by doing so? As for the question that the video is steady, not shaken, please remember that it is only a few seconds long, and anybody can do a steady film in so short time, no big deal. Finally, as to someone's question to why the alleged "sonda" is in the left area of the video, not in the center of it, as expected, the counter question is: why not? I am still talking to the guy, by e-mail, and will find out that very shortly. At this point, I can only regret that a witnesses can be discarded "a priori", or put under suspicion only for trying to show to a UFO research some material that he got, to describe an experience that he had, to both these facts that he seems legitimate seeking explanations. This discussion has been on in Brazil as well, I am afraid. As an educated man, the witness has access to internet and if he sees that her report has "a priori" been put under suspicion, as well as his character and intentions, I can only see that very probably he will refuse to continue talking to the researcher. Perhaps, this discussion over the www - again "a priori" - may refrain other potential witnesses, with probably great facts to tell, from coming forward to do so. I believe that the case has to be investigated and it is being investigated. But we can't jump into conclusions before that. Cheers. - A. J.
