Homer, Alaska Unhinged

What's That Up In The Sky? Extraterrestrials, Perhaps

I had been composing a formidable grumble regarding an issue
that continues to irritate the hell out of me. A certain
telephone company promised us DSL over a year and a half ago and
now they're claiming it was impossible to do in the first place.
Their stance has seriously steamed my chops but recent events
have put the rant temporarily on hold. Trust me. I will revisit
the subject very soon and share some customer service
conversations that made less sense than trying to discuss
quantum physics with a gerbil.

The target of this week's tome is UFOs. Yep. Ever since that
green cloud slid through the harbor's breakwater a few weeks ago
strange events have been reported to Unhinged Alaska's
headquarters. Two telephone messages were left on my "loon line"
stating that witnesses had spotted weird lights floating over
Mud Bay after midnight on the Sept. 21 and 22. Both parties
sounded flat sober which was unusual because most callers give
the impression that they've just emerged from a vat of Yukon

I figured someone was trying to give me a mind wedgie until
three e-mails hit the gmail box describing essentially the same
phenomenon on the same nights. They described two to three
triple light formations hovering over the bay followed by
descending glowing objects that seem to twirl and change
direction then terminate in the bay.

That did it. I pondered notifying the mayor that there could be
cooties in the town's water supply. It was either that or the
latest crop of East End Thunderfunk had gone impressively bad.
The more I contemplated the sightings the more I was convinced
that there had to be a rational explanation such as black
helicopters and bionic ninja special forces conducting night
training maneuvers after the Salty Dawg closed for the evening.

I decided to pass the information on to a professional at the
Homer News who knows more about outer space and extraterrestrial
beings than the staffs of the Discovery and Sci Fi Channels put
together. I'm not sure if I can use his name so I'll just refer
to him as M.A. His response was immediate and surprising. He
said the News had received some pictures from a person who said
she spotted strange lights on Sept. 4. I took a look at the
photos and was startled to note how closely they resembled the
observations I had just received. Things suddenly moved to the
Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone. M.A. also mentioned that the
Air National Guard did some training on the night of Sept. 17,
with para dudes leaping out of choppers. But, none of the dates

I was still vacillating whether to write about the bay possibly
becoming an Alaska Roswell/Area 51.5 or taking a whack at the
DSL fiasco when another memo came in from M.A. This time he had
received info from a reporter on Kodiak stating that "something
fell out of the sky over Kodiak just before 7 this morning"
(Sept 25). A couple of people said the light was so bright that
they thought it was a helicopter shining a light on them.
Another observer said it flashed like it was losing debris.
Troopers on the Kenai said they had received calls about seeing
lights in the sky too.

I decided that my angst with the phone company could wait. I
pulled up Google, typed "Alaska UFOs" and started to research
close encounters of the Kenai kind. It didn't take long to find
this little jewel from a blog site.

"Date of Event: 9/16/07, in the evening, around 7 or 8 pm.

Location of Event: West Anchorage, I saw it from Raspberry Rd
going west. It looked like it was above the Kincaid area.

Message: When I first noticed it, there was a smaller sized ball
of white light next to a larger one. The larger ball of light
then appeared to actually split into two after stretching out
long ways then becoming three separate balls of white light.
They moved slowly it seemed and also looked like they went off
in a formation of the 3. Never seen anything like it and I know
what I saw was not a plane or anything."

I wish that I could have gleaned more information before my
deadline but dial-up download systems takes more time than
milking a herd of slugs so, for now, I'll remain neutral on the

Maybe it's wireless time.

Nick C. Varney can be reached at ncvarney.nul if he isn't
inadvertently beamed up by extraterrestrials taking a crack at
dragging his dog Howard back to its home planet of Mutantcurs.
