Jim:

In all due respect to your wife, just because a witness insists
that they saw a UFO after a prosaic explanation is suggested
doesn't make it so.

It's interesting that despite Kathy's description of a mechanism
whereby any eyewitness could be fooled, you believe that it
increases the infallibility of eyewitness testimony.

If a UFO is reported to look like a star and a planet is known
to have been in that location, you seem to want, desperately, to
be able to ignore the hard, scientific data about something
which _can be known_ about the sighting circumstances, so that
you can wallow in unsupported eyewitness testimony.

Of course I realize that without unsupported eyewitness
testimony there would be few UFO reports, and there would still
be _no_ proven ET spaceships or little grey "nazis."


Clear skies,
