Better data is required. Hi Steve Whence and how do you suppose these better data are going to appear? When they do please let me know. I concede there is a theoretical possibility that 'better' data might increase the strangeness; but there is also a possibility, arguably a greater probability, that it might leave the strangeness unchanged or diminished. Does the prospect warrant the extraordinary - and difficult to design, no less to execute - retrospective investigative effort that would be needed to develop this better data? Who believes so should go ahead and do the designing and executing and their efforts will be judged by their results. Which we await with interest. Meanwhile, based on the primary data in the witness report such as they are, the weather information available such as it is, such secondary data as reasoned inference may extract, and massive collective ufological experience which should lead us to recognise several key indicators of one notorious IFO culprit, the most likely explanation, in this case, in my opinion, remains: fire balloons or 'Thai lanterns'/'Chinese Lanterns' whatever one wishes to calls them.
