Hi Nick

Thanks for your comments.

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

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.
