New witness in Illinois UFO case

http://www.examiner.com/article/new-witness-surfaces-illinois-ufo-case-from-january-2000

snips:

The story behind a well known Illinois UFO case from early January 2000 involving witnesses from multiple police departments may be rewritten as one new witness came forward July 16, 2012, to offer additional testimony from a vantage point in southern Missouri, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was an assistant fire chief at the time who watched the case being played out on a network television reenactment and called the UFO Examiner to disclose case details that had never before been revealed publicly. After speaking with the witness, both Missouri and Illinois MUFON were immediately contacted to begin an investigation. The witness officially filed a MUFON report with Assistant Missouri State Director Margie Kay today.

...

FILED BY ASD for the witness, who wishes to remain anonymous:

The witness, who was an Assistant Fire Chief at the time, was prompted to contact MUFON after seeing a TV program on the Illinois sightings in theyhear 2000. He stated that he was returning from a house fire in St. Clair, Missouri at approximately 3:00 AM and was on I-44 Highway approaching Union, Missouri when he heard law enforcement on the county police band radio discussing an unidentified object. The dispatcher said “Oh its this Roswell stuff again.” and that police were chasing the object.

As the witness approached 50 hwy and 47 hwy he saw a large triangular craft with lights pointing down over the Wal-Mart that was traveling at approximately 25-30 MPH. The witness said that the very bright lights on the object pointed downward, but did not light up the ground, seeming to stop approximately 100 feet up. The craft was approximately 500 above the ground.

(More at the link.)


Hmmm... “...lights pointing down over the Walmart...” Veddy interesting.

I just Googled “ASD,” and at MUFON, it stands for “Assistant State Director.” Here it refers to Assistant Missouri State Director Margie Kay (2nd paragraph above).

1. "over the Wal-Mart that was traveling at approximately 25-30 MPH"

I can't tell if that is fast or slow for a WalMart.

2. Hard to say.

Them mobile WalMarts can clip along pretty good, but 25-30 mph might be pushing it.

4. Yes, they will, and

others scoff at everything. I realize how frustrating it must be for scoffers to know that certain high-ranking U.S military officials, along with Air Force as well as commercial airline pilots and a growing number of reputable scientists, agree that the UFO phenomenon should be given a closer look.

Many reported sightings are hoaxes and others are misidentifications of natural objects and occurrences, but are all sightings attributable to these? What was it that appeared to follow Japan Airlines flight 1628 in 1987? Charged plasma? A cloud reflection? I’d like to know, and so would lots of other curious people. This is not the only case in which an experienced pilot reported an unidentified flying object. Do scoffers not think such sightings should be investigated?

Not everyone interested in UFOs believes without a doubt that ETs are visiting Earth, and some of us, including me, seriously doubt they are, but get this: every one of us knows what a goddamn frisbee looks like. Some scoffers become so frustrated and disgusted at the thought that not all skeptics are close-minded, that not all skeptics are scoffers and diehard debunkers, they feel they must show their scorn by banging their heads against brick walls and whatnot. This behavior is unnecessary and counterproductive, and it makes the scoffers who do it look more than a tad peculiar.
