Unless you are implying that the many unexplained lights or UFOs
seen and photographed in the skies above the Earth, and now
Mars, are just our own space hardware, I do not see how this
picture of an unexpected streak or UFO in the Martian sky taken
by one of the two rovers from the surface of Mars would be
useful in convincing the public that UFOs are real and something
to be taken seriously.

In addition to the seven or more out-of-commission American and
Soviet space probes still in orbit around Mars, there are at
least four more space probes still in operation above Mars,
including the European Mars Express and one more currently on
the way - the Phoenix spacecraft which fellow researchers from
York University have experiments onboard. This being the case,
I am very surprised that more UFOs/orbiting spacecraft were not
photographed, either intentionally or accidently, immediately
after sunsets and before sunrises by the Spirit and Opportunity
rovers that have now been operating on Mars for nearly 4 years!

If there is one photograph of a UFO in the vicinity of Mars that
should have been presented at Monday's press conference, it is
the last picture taken by the Soviet Phobos 2 space probe just
before it started spinning uncontrollably after apparently
impacting with this same UFO!

This last photo taken by Phobos 2 together with an earlier one
taken of Mars with its IR camera that revealed a grid-like
pattern which can readily be interpreted as an underground
Martian city have already been presented by still puzzled
Russian researchers at a few past press conferences in the past
which received little or no coverage in the U.S.

If you contact me directly, I will share further details about
these photos taken by Phobos 2 and why the Russian scientists
involved in this "failed" Mars mission believe they discovered
something so disturbing that they were forced not to openly
discuss it with their colleagues or make known their findings to
he public.

Unfortunately for these Phobos 2 scientists and a few other
researchers having inside information or direct knowledge of
UFOs who contacted me by e-mail or visited in person excited by
the prospect of the end to the ongoing UFO secrecy were
disappointed when Friday's CNN's Larry King Live show and
Monday's National Press Club Press Conference turned out to be
just the latest rehash of past attempts at disclosure.

With the same witnesses and UFO incidents known to both skeptics
and ufologists alike and with no big surprises or new
revelations at these two media events, there is no new hope that
the UFO cover-up will be ending soon or reason for these
researchers to come forward with their secrets about UFOs, much
of which the public or even ufologists may not be ready for or
want to know about.
