Readers of the skepticism and debunking forum will be familiar with Leslie Kean, and with our massive PF thread (now closed) devoted to her book: http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=426996

I pass along a couple of her recent articles regarding the highly amusing El Bosque UFO incident:

Here we have a UAP on video (actually 7 videos) running high speed rings around several flights of Chilean air force jets at an airshow.

Here is more reporting on the investigation by the astronomers, air force specialists and such.

Within the reporting is found this provocative statement:
Astronomer Luis Barrera from the Metropolitan University of Sciences in Chile, who has an asteroid named after him, was one of eight highly skeptical scientists who analyzed the footage. He was able to rule out a meteoroid, pieces of meteors or comets, space junk, a bird or an airplane.

"The object performed a risky flight maneuver in front of the Halcones from W-E-W, at low altitude and high speed," Barrera concluded. "It had intentional movements. It moved east with 25 degrees inclination, which is the same angle of spacecraft when entering the atmosphere."

Forum members are invited to review the material, but to please refrain from any reply which is not in conformity to recently revised forum rules. http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=593815
I would greatly prefer not to have my thread on unusual atmospheric phenomena and electrical eccentricities locked. Even so, any tactful and rational remarks would be appreciated.

Respectfully submitted,
