Jerry: As usual, we seem to be on opposite sides of the issue. You don't think that some witnesses to UFO events tailor their report to fit what they think will be acceptable to the UFO Reporting Center or UFO researcher? I have no way to prove it, but the Arizona event just reported on this List was one I also experienced. Albeit, just south of Tucson. But, the only reporting I did was to make a note on my calendar. It is where I write down out of the ordinary events I see in the sky while out on my patio smoking a really good cigar. It is my own record, very private, so I don't have to impress anybody. I did tell a couple of friends about the event. However, it's like this: the facts, just the facts, ma'am. DATE: October 18, 2011, Green Valley, AZ TIME: 10:15 PM DETAILS: Drone with white light craft array, possible four lights. Not the usual red & white military craft lightning array. Headed directly on a north flight path towards Tucson. Made an abrupt flight path correction & flew directly west. After a few moments, the craft lights were turned off. The craft was totally silent. Because there was no moon yet in the sky, I could not follow the craft. ASSUMPTION: I know that Raytheon is testing a new guidance system for its drones. Pilots have wanted a closer to in-craft pilot control, i.e., just like sitting in the cockpit and controlling the craft while sitting in a control booth, possibly at Fort Huachuca. Raytheon announced that it has complied with the Air Force's request for a larger drone with in-craft pilot control. I am impressed with their latest development. Have I ever seen something flying in the skies over my patio that I can't explain in prosaic terms? Once, I think it was back in May. The event was reported to astronomers I know. No one has been able to tell me what I saw. Naturally, until proven otherwise, I assumed it was some type of celestial event. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
