Again, given the number of guests and the segment's lack of focus, it was clear from the get-go that not a photon of light could've escaped from this sucking black hole. But it could have, because the producers actually had a hook to work with. And that's what makes this strikeout especially regrettable. Pennsylvanians were reporting a spike in UFO sightings in 2008, many emanating from the skies over Bucks County outside Philadelphia. It drew a little local media attention, the usual stuff, you know, with talking heads using the usual lame-o 'out of this world' segues. And as these things usually go, nobody ever got to the bottom of it. So the flap stayed confined to local quarters. Suddenly, from out of the blue, on April 24, Cooper resuscitated the mystery by inviting an eyewitness named Denise to tell national audiences about how she was awakened by her growling dog in the middle of the night to discover glowing lights above her house. The UFO(s) proceeded to sprinkle metallic-looking glitter on her tree, making her think "it was snowing in July". Cooper then introduced Pennsylvania state Mutual UFO Network director John Ventre to talk about what happened to the tree. Ventre said MUFON sent leaves from the affected tree to two different labs, both of which reported "high levels of magnesium and boron", two to three times higher than controlled samples detected on neighboring trees. Furthermore, the leaves had produced anthocyanin, which Ventre accurately described as a plantís natural defense from heat and radiation. But were those levels of anthocyanin excessive or unnatural? And what gives with the elevated magnesium and boron? This is the part where you bring in one of the lab analysts, right? Or a botanist, maybe? Nope. Not on Anderson Cooper.
