FOLLOWUP TO MY POST ABOUT THE UFO IN THE CLOUDS…..
As I was intent on finishing my last post about UFOs hiding in clouds (article below), I realised I didn’t know the date of our return from New York. If I really wanted to get an idea of how high those cloud tops were, I needed specific data. So yesterday afternoon I called Lyn – after a good year and a half of silence.
I didn’t tell her immediately why I was calling – which was to find out if she knew when we flew back from New York. First thing she said was, “It’s no surprise you’d call today – I was just talking about you last night. It seems that every time you come to mind and I start to reminisce, you call.”
Lyn’s a talker. Originally from New Jersey, she really likes to take charge of the conversation. So as I was waiting patiently to ask my question, the next thing she says is, “You’ll never believe what I found as I was going through some papers earlier today. Our ticket stubs from the New York trip!”
Hmmm. Synchronicity, anyone?
It’s pretty amazing that she’d just come across the itinerary information that morning, as I was thinking about how much I needed the information. In fact as I was talking to her on the phone I was holding my Guggenheim notebook, which didn’t have anything about the return date in it, as Lyn told me she was looking at the receipt from a couple of things she bought at the Guggenheim. And of course, looking at the plane ticket receipts, she also had our return date and time.
We came back on Continental flight C407Y, leaving Newark at 12.50 PM and arriving in Denver at 3.01 PM on the 23rd of July.
I was able to pull up a bit of information from the Weather Underground historical weather data, and found that several cities in the vicinity of where we were had scattered clouds and relatively high humidity levels. I still can’t pinpoint the exact location of the sighting, of course – but the data provided enough information to confirm that there were some low-level clouds over that part of the country during the afternoon hours. I’ve passed that information to Steve, who did the prior calculations. If he’s able to do any more fine-tuning, I’ll post any updates I get to accompany the comment to the original article, in which I’ve included an excerpt from Steve’s reply to my inquiry where he estimates of the disk’s diameter to be somewhere between about 700 to 800 feet – in case you missed that.
A saucer the diameter of about two football fields is enough for me. A smaller or larger craft would be just fine too. The disk was apparently much larger than I initially guessed it to be. Steve’s calculations are the best we’re going to get; we’ll never have exact numbers. The synchronicity of Lyn finding the information I needed just when I needed it – without any direct communication from me to prompt her to go looking – is confirmation enough for me that we’re on the right track.
(FYI, Lyn’s the friend who helped me to make the weekend run to North Dakota described in my article “More Crop Circle Synchronicities….” – a trip that took place just weeks after our return from New York. It was a very exciting summer indeed!)
