I Still Want To Believe

Alright, everyone, no need to worry. The lights seen following the Mexican Air Force pilots last week are nothing but ball lightning. According to Julio Herrera, a scientist at Mexico's National Autonomous University, the light effects captured by the plane's FLIR system were probably nothing but the world's rarest atmospheric event, next to actual extraterrestrials. Although there is only one actual ball lightning event ever videotaped, which doesn't really resemble this footage, most media are reporting this theory as truth. If you now try to Google this article, you will see that there are almost twice as many article explaining this sighting away as ball lightning as there are articles reporting it in the first place.

Whatever, draw your own conclusions. Believe if you must.
