Hello all,

These types of observations by Graham are the reason why the
actual visual witnesses in such a case are so important.
According to Fernando Camacho, Jaime has located and identified
about 15 witnesses; these probably include the two in on the

The witnesses will obviously have to be (or have been) intensely
questioned and investigated to see if one or more have been
bribed to report what wasn't there, or are otherwise in on a
hoax.  We must keep in mind that one or two fake witnesses who
come forward after a UFO event is known, in order to try to
debunk it, do not negate the testimony of honest witnesses.
