- Ball lightning, atmospheric gases, meteors, space debris,
weather balloons, stealth aircraft, flares etc., have been the initial
explanations from conventional wisdom so far as reported by the media of
the UFOs sighted by the Mexican Air Force. I think however, that the "strange
phenomena" to be observed is that of the media, and how it responds
to such unusual events. Moreover, the mostly unnamed scientists that have
seemed to easily solve the UFO sighting in Mexico without providing any
data to support their theories is another anomaly.
- If this wasn't such an important issue it would be comical
in the sense that one has to wonder if some of the people interviewed,
even read the initial reports in their entirety. If they had, they would
know that the pilots were primarily alerted to "unknown traffic"
via an "echo" from their radar; it was assumed that this was
a plane involved with the drug trade; as a matter of protocol they altered
course accordingly in pursuit of the target in order to "record"
it with their instruments per their mission of detection and surveillance
of suspected aircraft involved in the illegal drug trade.
- When they had reached the point of visual confirmation,
they were surprised not to be able to see anything with the naked eye;
consequently, they activated the FLIR (forward-looking infrared device)
which "confirmed" what the radar was seeing. SO to reiterate,
a "hard target" was picked up on radar, and then pursued, upon
"not making a visual contact" FLIR was activated and supported
the radar data.
- In the onset their instruments tracked only one object,
but that number would rise to a total of 11. Later after breaking pursuit
of the objects, they inturn, "changed direction" and followed
the Mexican military plane. The instruments show at one point that they
were surrounded. Moreover speeds of up to 300 knots were recorded.
- In conclusion, the instruments (FLIR and RADAR) offer
data of objects of "mass and energy" and their movements indicate
"intelligent control." In addition, their reported "speed
and maneuvers" eliminates all known man-made craft, along with any
suggested atmospheric phenomenon etc. What we have here, is what has been
said all along--UFOs, that is U.nidentified F.Lying O.Bjects--this is where
the evidence/data leads, no more or no less at this point in time.
- This certainly of course necessitates further investigation
by individuals who will "look at the data/evidence" and draw
theorem from that, opposed to making proclamations based on their respective
mind-sets. Furthermore, one would hope that the media would realize the
importance of asking "intelligent questions" regarding this matter
opposed to peddling "swamp gas!"
- Ironically, I think the bigger event is that the Mexican
military decided to go public with this story--had this been "civilian
sighting" it most likely would have gone un-noticed by the likes of
mainstream media etc. Perhaps this will be an example for other governments
to step up to the plate and enlighten the masses.
