From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Tue, 18 Oct 2011 01:45:48 -0400 Archived: Tue, 18 Oct 2011 01:45:48 -0400 Subject: New Tool In The Hunt For UFOs Source: Herald Tribune.Com http://tinyurl.com/3tccjoc October 13th, 2011 01:54pm Can a new mobile app, Skywatch Alert, motivate Americans to document and share UFO activity in real time? New Tool In The Hunt For UFOs by Billy Cox Morgan Beall has one thankless job as MUFON section director for southwest Florida. The chances of working a case as spectacular as Stephenville '08 or Phoenix '97 are - as always - remote. He chases sighting reports from his home in Fort Myers without a salary or even reimbursement for mileage. Most of those incidents have unambiguous origins. All too often, when he ventures a prosaic explanation, the witnesses don't want to hear it, and argue with him. "When that happens, a lot of times we're looked at as government agents assigned to misinform," says Beall of his fellow field investigators. "And to the mainstream media, we're just crackpots looking for little green men all the time." Dude can't win. But lately, the environmental consultant is actually getting excited about the future of his research. That's because, as MUFON's director of technology, he and his colleagues are looking to unveil a mobile app they hope could be a game- changer. It's called UFO Connect, and its official unveiling is Nov. 12. [More at site... thanks to 'The Norm' for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
