Therefore, the calculation is correct. I guess bottom line is that I believe my triangulation is correct (based on video analysis, having been at the locations and measured directions, etc.) You believe your visual impressions are correct. I can't refute your recollection of visual impression. My triangulation, however, could be refuted if it is wrong. I first published my triangulation results in 1998. As yet, no one has produced data to refute the triangulation, based on the Krzysten, Rairdon and Lynne videos for March 13, 1997. Nor has anyone refuted the comparison triangulation I did for lights in 1998 based on Lynne, Krzysten, Rairdon and "P" videos. Th lights recorded in the 1998 videos produced the same sorts of video images as the lghts recorded on March 13, 1997.
