Mystery Lights In The Sky Pt 2

Continuation Of Mystery Lights In the Sky

Secondly, lets add, multiple witnesses especially of the type who are known to demonstrate rational reasonable thinking. True that sounds condescending  but it's how the real world functions. Do  the individuals claiming to have seen or experienced a certain phenomenon have a reputation and a track record for not being given over to excesses?  To be even more clear if you're claiming you've seen a UFO and you happen to attend one of the Star Trek conventions dressed  as Worf  dont' be surprised if your testimony would be discredited as invalid due to your being extreme.  Keep in mind that sure does look like a large walnut on Worf's head so how could you blame folk for thinking you a nut.

So multiple witnesses, but of the type not given over to excesses, professionals such as police officers would add to the believability factor as well. Ask yourself how many police officers while on duty would want  to participate in a hoax with the public record of doing so a part of  911 tapes?  Would many of them want to risk their jobs by not looking professional at all times? So considering the two aspects of having multiple witnesses which are also  deemed credible,  I've picked two particular examples which seem to show credible evidence backing the thought that at least a strange event had occurred. The first is what's known as the Turnbull Country UFO event and the second  the Phoenix Lights story.

The Turnbull County event in Youngstown Ohio, took place on Dec 14, 1974 and involved over a dozen police officers giving chase to strange lights in the night sky. Numerous calls had come in to the police dispatch centre of people seeing a bright red glow in the sky. One  resident of Samson Drive claimed the craft came down and was hovering right over his house. When one officer, Mr Toby Melero reached the scene he radioed back  that whatever the thing was it's size was huge. He reported as the vessel or craft went over top his position all the power of his vehicle suddenly went dead. Dozens of other officers latter described it as a brightly luminous object that rotated as if on an axis. They observed it as well hovering over housetops at disturbingly low level of elevation.

Again the key issue is multiple witnesses and of the type who'd say have a lot to lose by participating in a hoax. Individual anecdotal stories like the kind of Billy-Joe and Sally-Jane could be made up and hoaxed and as long as they didn't involve wasting the time of peace officers in conducting investigations, thus they'd be charged with mischief---they could spin their tales and fibs to their hearts desire. Officers of the law could not or would not do so considering how much they'd  lose. I find it interesting that the record states on the 911 tapes of the Turnbull event that the phenomenon was hugh hovering over residential areas and yet NBC in their 'Confirmation Special' wanting it would seem to discredit the account brought in some cynical astronomer suggesting all the officers saw was a comet or planet. Yeah sounds good! When the officers state,

it was huge and hovering we can all set aside their descriptions and say whatever we want. Isn't that what's called the spin masters going to work? As for me on this case I'd have to stay with what the officers claimed they actually saw even though it was never totally defined exactly what it was. A second interesting account worthy of note is the Phoenix Lights event. On March 13, 1997  it's  reported that thousands of people [notice the multiple witnesses] including the then Governor Fife Symington saw a strange phenomenon, or UFO. Some time later it was defined by the Governor as being 'otherworldly'. You can watch them yourself.   Here was seen a V shaped craft but here's the kicker--it was over one mile wide, would hover and made no noise! All the ingredients which would define this as a credible account are all present--multiple witnesses of good reputation.
