Geoff, no offense, but I doubt anyone on this List needs to be
reminded of the hundreds of sightings that have been made by
experienced military & civil aviation personnel.

I realise, though, that my comment wasn't very clear. What I
meant was that _in general_ it is reasonable to suggest that an
unknown, unidentifiable object in the sky _might_ be an
experimental craft. After all, there was time when every plane
in existence was at an experimental stage. As much as I want to
find hard evidence of extra-terestrial visitors I'm unwilling to
entertain more mundane origins for any sightings.

That being said, I doubt that whatever was seen over the Channel
islands was military, given that it was reported to be glowing
yellow and green (yes, Don, I know that it's possible, but the
point i'm trying to make is that it seems rather an unlikely
profile for a secret, experimental craft).

In any case, I don't think it's right to label this guy's
suggestion as "horse manure". He was simply stating his opinion,
after all:

"I am not trying to discredit anything that Ray said because I
saw him 45 minutes after the incident and he was clearly shaken.
He obviously saw something."

That's hardly the statement of a disinformation specialist. So
what? He thinks there might be a mundane explanation. Big deal.
I think we can both agree to disagree with him and leave it at
