When there's physical evidence, such as the brightness and
positions of celestial objects, I'm perfectly willing to allow
for some "witness myopia", if people report UFOs that look like
"stars", where planets should be. This is especially true when I
wonder, "How do they know what a UFO looks like?"

So am I.

Clear skies,
