1973 Army-Helicopter Encounter

  1. Aug 19, 2005 #1

    "Philip Klass said the crew misidentified a meteor or fireball, and suggested the ground witnesses were lying."

    I have a hard time believing that an army crew with a captain that has 19 years flight experience could misidentify a meteor to the extent of what they explained they saw. I mean they weren't professional astronomers, but geeze they couldn't have been that way off. There have been hundreds of identical sightings of this sort, cigar shaped, with dome on top. Are people really just seeing meteors?
