One Hour, Thirty-Four Minutes, Two Seconds of Truth

Kiddo, if the public knew the truth, there’d be thousands of idiots blowing their own damn heads off.

--Circa 1971, my late father, Robert S. Howe, who served in the U.S. Navy 1959-1962, and subsequently, the Pentagon, in response to my asking him if extraterrestrial life existed. He never did give me a definitive answer despite repeatedly asking him for one.

Oh, my God! Oh, my God, Mom! What is that?”

--Me, summer of 1979, finally getting my answer.

Truly wonderful video ... but is it ever going to open wide? My husband and I were driving through Wyoming with a lovely electric storm to the north of us, stars above us (we had a sun roof) and watched a "shooting star" go from the starry sky to the horizon ... in front of the lowering clouds ahead ... and suddenly go shooting off horizontally. We just looked at each other and said, "Did you see that? What can do that?" ... and nothing more.

Cooool. ;-) Someday I'll go into detail about what my mother and I witnessed back in '79. Freaky weirdness that scared the living shit out of me as a kid, but now look back on fondly.

I've told very few people about it, but my mother, still to this day, tells EVERYONE, which is a bit embarrassing at times...
