it’s like they have a federal committee standing by to make the least convincing explanation possible.
The Federal Aviation Administration acknowledged that a United supervisor had called the control tower at O’Hare, asking if anyone had spotted a spinning disc-shaped object. But the controllers didn’t see anything, and a preliminary check of radar found nothing out of the ordinary, FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said.
“Our theory on this is that it was a weather phenomenon,” Cory said. “That night was a perfect atmospheric condition in terms of low (cloud) ceiling and a lot of airport lights. When the lights shine up into the clouds, sometimes you can see funny things.”
It was a “weird weather phenomenon“??
I am not one of those flying saucer conspiracy people, but ferfuckssake, an explanation that bad makes even me say “Um, what?”
