Turkish UFO Researchers
Dismiss Sightings As Meteor Shower

In an e-mail report to UFO UpDates filed by Turkey UFO and
Paranormal Events Research Organization [TUVPO], the multiple
sightings of bright flying objects seen in that country on
November 1 have been identified as belonging to the Leonid
Meteor Shower, which peaks this month sometime between November
17 and 20.

Members of TUVPO's Afyon branch followed up on both the sighting reports
filed by the pilots of four aircraft in the vicinity at that time of the
incident, and additional eyewitness sightings from cities that
included Antalya, Balikesir and Afyon.

Photographs were obtained of the event, including this one taken
by Halil Yalcin, and these have been examined by the scientific
advisers of TUVPO, plus Prof. Dr. M.E.Ozel and Dr.Hafez Keypour,
of the Turkish National Observational House.

As a result of these findings, TUVPO has closed its file on this
event.
