 Re. Ms. Becker's allegation that MUFON "disregarded" the Hyzer
 analysis (an issue which I believe has already been illuminated
 somewhat by Dennis Stacy), Bruce Maccabee has this to say:

The response to this is BOVINE EXCREMENT!!!!

MUFON published Hyzer's report!   Sainio and I checked on Hyzer's
analysis and concluded it was wrong in certain important areas.   Hyzer
gave the strongest endorsement to the road shot being a hoax  because there
was no reflection in th hood.  This is a good point, explained by a
combination of th dented hood (accident that Hyzer acknowledged) plus
weight in the back of the truck which tilted it in such a way as to "block"
reflections of lights below a certain altitude above ground.   The answer
was permanently recorded in th photos itelf for anyone, including Hyzer, to
see(  the horizon line - treetops -- appeared twice in the hood, which
should not have happened and wouldn't have without the dent)
(b)  Hyzer referred to the blue beam but did not test for variation in
brightness where the blue beam crosses the horizon in photo 11:  had he done
so he would have pria facie evidence against a simple double exposure;
Hyzer's explanation of photo 1 was refuted.
