PRESS RELEASE:

New Zealander First To Explain UFOs

For centuries unexplained lights have appeared in the night sky
with no suitable theory though many have been advanced. A New
Zealander is claiming he was the first to successfully explain
the mystery lights commonly called "UFOs" with a unified theory.
These are the hard-to-explain UFO cases. Author and researcher
Peter Coleman has revealed the real science behind these
unexplained UFO fireballs.

His unified theory not only explains these UFO chariots of fire
but in one sweeping theory ball lightning, the Tunguska
"meteor", the Kaikoura UFOs, the Australian Min mins, the will
o'the wisp and several other events are accounted for. Not
content with theory he has actually created the fireballs in the
laboratory and published the results in a 1999 Spring issue of
EOS Transactions a publication of the American Geological Union.

His theory first appeared in 1993 in Weather (publication of
Royal Meteorological Society of the UK) and in New Scientist 22
May, 1999. He has since written two books Ball Lightning-a
scientific mystery explained (limited edition) that challenges
the idea that ball lightning is an unsolved problem especially
the book by Mark Stenhoff called Ball Lightning- an unsolved
problem. Peter's latest book is Great Balls of Fire-A unified
theory of UFOs, ball lightning, Tunguska and other anomalous
lights is expected to be available sometime this year.

EXPERIMENTAL FIREBALL IMAGE

CAPTION: This was produced in a specialised combustion chamber
with air flowing in through vanes at the bottom to create a
vortex. The fuel gas is LPG. The gas is burning within the
vortex environment. The confined vortex coupled with the burning
gas is experimental. One would expect to see an unconfined
vortex burning and moving at the same time. These vortex
fireballs can get larger up to several meters in diameter. It is
this phenomenon that the author is proposing to explain UFO
fireballs, ball lightning and some anomalous meteors.

-----

The key idea is that many UFO reports are actually luminous
vortices. Only vortices have the power and unpredictibility to
account for extreme events. Couple this to the idea that a
vortex is actually on fire in a spheroidal zone of vortex
breakdown and you have a potent formula that will explain many
puzzling lights.

Vortex breakdown is the essential element. The low air speeds in
this region enable a combustion flame to survive amidst the
surrounding high speed air streams. Imagine seeing such a vortex
at night all that you would see would be the fireball region
moving around in seemingly unpredictable fashion and against the
wind!

That such atmospheric vortex burners should exist is
indisputable and first postulated by Coleman. The whole concept
is firmly based on known ideas and results in science. Coleman
believes that a correct solution could not have eventuated prior
to 1957 simply because vortex breakdown was discovered in 1957
on the leading edge of model wings of planes.

The speculation and confirmnation that naturally occurring
vortices should exhibit vortex breakdown would have have come
later. Vortex breakdown has been seen in tornadoes only
relatively recently by Pauley and Snow in 1988. Reports in early
meteorological literature testify that such vortex burners
exist. Collectively there is now sufficient evidence in favour
of this unified theory.

Dr Stanley Singer a ball litghtning researcher, retired
Professor Karl Nickel, Russian Scientists such as Marina Pankova
and now a prominent scientist and physicist Bernard Haisch
thinks that the theory may explain some UFOs.
