The 30yr-old mystery of Belgium's UFO wave

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"At first, the witnesses claimed, all you noticed were the lights.

"They were so bright you could read by them, so brilliant that a policeman described them as "like lights on a huge football field."

"Only gradually did you notice the object they emitted from — a hulking triangular shape, with three enormous spotlights pointed toward the ground, and a red, flashing light at its center.

""The whole thing," recalled the policeman, as if barely able to believe it himself, "was floating in the air."

"It was a clear November night in 1989, near the town of Eupen, Belgium, which sits some seven miles from the German border.

"Heinrich Nicoll, the policeman, and his partner, Hubert Von Montigny, called their dispatcher to report the object they'd stumbled on while on a routine patrol."

I remember a widely circulated picture of these Belgium triangular lights was eventually proven to be a hoax:

Given those quotes, the article blatantly misrepresents the facts.  The case was thoroughly debunked, and even the first sentence is bull**** - the witness statements were only interesting in their inconsistency.

BTW, back in 1989, many, many people had decent (non-digital) cameras/ video cameras.  Pity they never used them.
