By no means. Somebody who is looking at a scene and reports
there WAS no light hovering out there, is most certainly a
witness. By Fleming's definition, if in a crowd of twenty people
one points to the sky and cries, 'Look at the UFO', and the
others look up but see nothing, they don't COUNT as witnesses.
Preposterous, I'd say.

One possibility is that I was viewing the original video from
the NASA film, and the Internet UFO sites have digitized,
scanned, re-centered, and possibly contrast-enhanced the image
to appeal to their viewing audience.
