  1. Re the newspaper articles about the
    "Battle of Los Angeles" that have recently been posted on "The UFO Chronicles," I was an eyewitness to this fabled event (please see my account of it on this site under the rubric "Alien Scribes") and can attest that the single anomalous object we saw in the sky in the wee hours of February 25,
    1942, did NOT look like a
    butterfly, at least from my perspective.

    Yes, there were other aircraft in the sky that night, but they were all ours: interceptors that had been scrambled as a result of the anomalous object's presence. I only saw one flight of four or five aircraft pass over our house in Hermosa Beach (please see my aforementioned account) about 4:00 a.m., after the anti-aircraft fire had abated. They roared off to the southest, following the track the object had taken. Indeed, it's now almost certain that at least one of them was forced down in the course of the action, either by "friendly fire" or by the craft they were pursuing. However, I distinctly heard another flight of interceptors about an hour earlier. The sound of piston-driven, 1940s vintage aircraft was unmistakable. I might add that the silvery, lozenge-shaped object istelf, which slowly passed almost directly overhead, seemingly oblivious to the ack-ack that was exploding all around it, made no sould whatsoever.

    Why, in the face of so much evidence to the contrary, the military has continued to deny that any aircraft were in the sky that evening can perhaps best be understood in light of the broader policy of ultra secercy re the UFO phenomenon that has been in place for at least the last six decades. Perhaps our new president, who has promised more transparency than has heretofore existed, may eventually see fit to disclose the truth, not only about the "Battle of Los Angeles" but also about UFOs per se. But I'm not holding my breath.
