  1. Where can UFO nuts like me, get DVD’s of past, big UFO events? I wish I could attend every one of them! I”m sure I”m not alone in this situation. There are hopefully, thousands, maybe millions of people, that would love to have DVD,s of all these events, that can”t or weren’t able to attend. Is there a list of purchase sights, or does one have to search for hours to acquire them? It sure would be handy!!! Thanks

  2. I agree with Wil, stationary for two hours, accomplished pilot. Even if he had no access to a camera he could have called the local news station and most of the time they will shoot some video especially if it concerns a Nuclear Power Station. I am open minded to the existence of life other than us and the fact we have been and are being visited but this just does not set right with me.

  3. Oh my! ANOTHER totally convincing TWO HOUR sighting with ZERO photo evidence. I guess you can’t expect a guy to get his hands on a camera–or his cell phone camera–in a measly two hour period of time…

  4. I would not have video-recorded it because I do not own such.
    Most UFO video recordings are crap anyway, so why bother?
    You get this nondescript light in the picture that tells nothing.
    Good visual descriptions probably are more productive.
    Folks need to learn to write and describe their sightings in detail.

    The theory is that UFOs emit wavelengths, which cameras will not record.
    Our physics community needs to work on better UFO technology.
    I would buy high-tech instruments that were reasonably priced.
