I agree that _spooky_ special effects just for the sake of them
in some outdated attempt to appeal to the base crassness of an
uneducated and unenlightened audience is not necessary. In fact
it is only one more reason for the unitiated to look at the
presentation and automatically classify it into the kooky/looney

A good beginning would be a collaborative effort by all the main
researchers in developing a Flying Saucers 101 primer of all the
_best_ trace casses with physcial evidence, including radar
tapes, soil samples, DOD, FAA and other testimony. To put the
thing together and make it _free_ via the Web and then promote
it to school teachers from middle-grade to university level.

It is a project somewhat similar to what is being done with the
Cydonia Anomalies Archive Image Map for future discussion and
also to be used as a refernce in requesting imaging from the
Mars Reconnasaince Orbiter when the public targeting phase
begins. More on how such a collaborative _can_ be done and how
this effort is taking shape and will be _free_ to any and all
users can be seen here:


We are not in this for the money, prestige, or honors... but the
data. And in spreading the _idea_ of Cydonias Anomalies as a
respectable research field because of the science already done
in the field.

I would think that flying saucer and ETI proponents might be
able to take on a similar project and then promote it. At least
it is a different approach than what we've been doing for 60
some odd years.
