Close Encounters Of The First Kind: Do We Really Care? - Pt. 2
by Michael Swords

Let's see how far I can get on this topic today. When you're
dealing with an old man sometimes the energy just quits - but
high hopes. Yesterday we looked at some of the 1940s and 1950s
cases which happened to be in my files [I say that to remind us
that there are MANY other cases and many other drawings], where
the witness blessed us with an actual first hand illustration of
the object involved. Today we can gaze at another set of these
things; this time from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s. And so
we go....

Our first and unsurprising "conclusion" is that they continue to
defy any detailed pattern, just as their earlier sister set of
cases also did so deny [how's that for 19th century British
sentence structure? - sorry, my PhD is in 19th century History
of Science and Technology]. If anything these characters may
even be a little bit more diverse. Even the two "diamond
hexagonal" objects differed mightily in size, although they were
both on the small side when it comes to UFOs. It was nice that
the one lady felt that she saw the same shaped craft ten years
and several hundred miles apart, but even that might give one
some cause for out-of-control speculation [feel free; it doesn't
hurt that much if you're honest about it].

As to the specific sightings: There are some of UFOlogy's
strongest CE1s in this set. I've found over the years, even in
very informal polls at UFO get-togethers, that folks differ
greatly in their "favorite case lists", but a couple of these
above make them more than not [ Red Bluff and Exeter]. [I've
read recently an attempt to debunk Exeter, but if you read the
extensive interviews by John Fuller and others on this case, you
see rather quickly that the persons pushing the debunk aren't
interested in addressing the whole case's details]. And Red
Bluff is a UFO Titan no matter how you want to cut it. In that
case the Air Force and Donald Menzel actually used atmospheric
diffraction of stars WHICH WERE NOT EVEN IN THE SKY YET to come
up with what was a totally ridiculous concept anyway. THAT was
one of the biggest, most over-the-top, explanatory stupidities
or dishonesties [take your pick] in the history of the field.
