Anatomy Of A UFO Sighting

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Depending on how you look at it, there is either an easy answer or more complications to the UFO sighting by a Bristol Township man last weekend.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, reported that he, his wife and his daughter sighted an unidentified flying object from their home just before 8 p.m. Saturday. The family lives near the Fox River north of Yorkville.


They said they saw two lights moving east northeast, with colors ranging from red, orange, yellow and pink."

The Beacon News

The average person who sees strange lights in the sky will figure there`s a natural explanation (conventional aircraft, meteorites, Chinese lanterns), and he will quickly forget about what he saw and return to his daily routine.

But this man reported what he saw to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and of course the press couldn`t resist the story.

After the story ran in the local newspaper a man, who also wishes to remain anonymous, said that around 8 p.m. Saturday he set off a couple of Chinese lanterns as a tribute to his deceased dad.

A couple of days later another man, a commercial pilot, said that the description of the event sounds like falling space junk.

MUFON claims that there`s a video of the sighting, but no one has been able to open the video of the file to see it.

MUFON experts can`t open a simple video file, but they consider themselves experts at ascertaining whether unidentified flying objects are of extraterrestrial origin?

This incident is much ado about nothing, the next time the man who set off the Chinese lanterns wants to pay tribute to his decease dad, I hope he writes a poem in his memory.

To go along with the theme of this incident maybe I should have published this article anonymously.
