The plot thickens

This is getting to be too much.

Now the French are getting into the act! France is the first nation in the world to open government files on UFOs. Happened just yesterday. Seriously. They even have a well-organized website http://www.cnes-geipan.fr/ documenting more than 1600 sightings over five decades, according to New Scientist.com news service press release that I found last night.

The French have been keeping records since 1954 and nearly 25% are classified as "type D", or "something we can't explain."

Back up.

Two days ago, I wrote about the paucity of UFO sightings now that everyone has a cell phone capable of taking videos on the spot.

Bam! The very next day, the former governor of Arizona comes out of the closet admitting he did, indeed, see the famed Phoenix Lights some ten years ago. Are you getting the connection? Phoenix Lights. George Phenix.

Just when you think there's nothing more, the French government opens UFO files and makes news world wide.

I'm beginning to get a funny feeling. Remember that great movie, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" when the French scientist said to let the Earthlings through. "Leave them alone. They were invited."

I wonder. Is my invitation in the mail?

Not to be a party pooper, but the Phoenix Lights were actually parachute flares dropped by planes on night patrol. More information on it is at The Bad Astronomer's site.
