I thought that this was not a spontaneous speech. Following his eye movements, and lack of body language, it looked to me as if he was reading from a "Prompter" screen-board-notes. IOW, this was a ed interview imo. That said, his information sounded factual to me, a non-informed lay person.

Absolutely, back in the 1950's it was standard operating proceedure to everything. When I said that the "film was impressive", I meant the video of the UFOs. I tend to think it went down basically the way Mr. Mariana said it did. He managed to film some interesting UFOs.

I am a real skeptic but I must say that considering the time this was filmed I am impressed. Pretty cool stuff.

Considering the footage on its own I have no problem with the official explanation for this supposed event. A blurb from : This explanation, of course, was later disputed by those seeking validation for the budding ETH. And there is the accusation that some of the footage was stolen, and that footage supposedly showed clearly that the objects were rotating disks. Personally, I don't buy that at all. The footage looks exactly like two aircraft, at a distance, flying in formation. I see this kind of thing all the time in the sky.

The official explanation was that these were unknowns. Mariana saw the two jets going by as well, but these were not the UFOs.

In his book, Edward Ruppelt wrote that he asked Mariana to send him the film for analysis in 1952, and they determined that the UFOs were not F-94 jets. This case remains an unknown.

Of course it remains unknown, but I don't see any reason to think that this is anything but reflections from distant aircraft, whether they were the F-94 jets or not. Why would anyone abandon this entirely prosaic and consistent explanation in favor of ET piloted vehicles unless their expressed purpose was to promote the supposed validity of the ETH? The footage captured looks just like distant aircraft. Like most other UFO cases, this one is replete with hype. Cut out the hype and all you have is motion picture that looks like planes.

I didn't abandon it. Edward Ruppelt and the Air Force spent months analyzing this film back in 1952 and determined that whatever was flying around there, it wasn't aircraft--no aircraft that we know--and they don't look like planes. As Mariana said himself, they did not even have wings or tails. Ruppelt also ruled out reflections.

Interesting but hardly amazing at the same time. Did they check to see if any aircraft were in the area at the time? Did they have records of that? Could they have been airforce planes?

These objects are not man-made and they are solid objects flying thru the air...these are the real things...and i see a previous statement that it's reflections from a distant aircraft....it's like are you out of your mind? Don't you know anything about physics? If it's anything it's not a reflection. See, when the real thing is there you dissmiss it...when someone blows up balloons with candles in them you believe that though.
