How Many Bad UFO Stories Do We Need?
Right off, let me say that I am a believer in UFOs and that something/someone is visiting this planet for reasons we don’t comprehend or at least are not being let in on. That being said, stories like “UFOs buzz the Bronx” irritate the hell out of me. What we need is more investigative reporting and less fluff and glamorizing of things that are obviously not UFOs.
The New York Post says that according to a New York City Fire Department (FDNY) source, one resident had called in terrified when she saw a “flying spaceship” fly over the Hunts Point area.
The New York Post also talked to Juan Marrero, another witness. He explained, “I look up and see this fireball, ‘Whoosh!’ and then another, ‘Whoosh!’”
Marrero, described as a “pigeon fancier” by the New York Post, was on his rooftop when he spotted the UFOs. He says it was about 11:30 pm when he saw the two bright streaks shoot across the sky. He said they moved “From one side of the sky to the other, too fast for an airplane.”
Hmmmm… A fireball moving in a straight line really fast. <sarcasm>There can’t be any rational explanation for that.”</sarcasm>
To make matters worse we have photos like this one that was supposedly shot late in the evening of a UFO blasting past a terrified motorist. Now in all fairness, the article I’m referencing points out that this is probably just a lens flare. But why are so many authors willing to entertain that this even might be a UFO?
Back to my rant, what we need is more serious reporting of sightings by genuine reporters. I know, no one will fund that, but if we don’t start weeding out the obviously explainable stories from the good sightings, I’m afraid we will start throwing the baby out with the bath water proverbially speaking.
