Later in the article, James McGaha, astronomer extraordinaire and ardent debunker, makes the statement: "Most professional astronomers don't look at the sky. Most of them sit in a room with computers and image the sky, so they don't ever go outside and look, and many of them don't know how to actually identify the constellations in the sky - it's unfortunate, but that's the way it is." But when _I_ stated that fact in a number of publications and venues, including UFO UpDates, debunkers attacked me for not understanding astronomy. Go figure. As for the main premise of the article, of course, Rees' statement that only "kooks" see UFOs is completely incorrect. At a recent conference in Saskatchewan, I deliberately presented a series of government documents detailing UFO sightings reported by military personnel. Oh, wait... Listen to 'Strange Days...
