Some time back, in an 11/6/2009 post, I mentioned these sorts of UFO cases. My friend calls them "micro-displays". I use the term "astro-alignments". The case that convinced me that such things occur and are not random creations of just a very large number of reports, was the Lake Ronkonoma NY incident mentioned in that post. In that case, the UFO appeared to a group of astronomers [of all people] and seemed to deliberately and precisely circle the planet Saturn, then breaking off to half-circle the Moon. The tremendous difference in distance between The Moon and Saturn means that the object was not around both of them, and thereby was making an artificial alignment about at least one. The object's brightness and the fact that it was not reported by any other astronomers means that it was not around either astronomical object, and was in fact very close to the astronomers. It was, therefore, putting on a particular display, and almost assuredly just for them. To do that, it had to know exactly "where they lived" [i.e., where they were precisely and at that time], in order to do the trick. And the agents behind the UFO behavior had to know this precision from a large distance away since there was no "close encounter". This level of detailed knowledge at great distances is a bit disturbing, and it indicates a tool in creating full control of whatever the situation is that might explain a lot of "perfection" in their ability to manipulate each encounter without making give-away mistakes.
The "excuse" for this post is that recently the same friend who created the nickname micro-display found another one ["Arizona 2011"] and coincidentally I stumbled into an old one ["Beverly Hills 1973"]. There might be as many as 30 of these things now in my files --- doubtless dozens more exist. The Beverly Hills case is an old-style "star-circler" type from the MUFON journal SKYLOOK. The witness felt a "presence" then looked up to see two "stars" but one began to move and made a circle about the real star before shooting off. The most interesting aspect of this is the feeling of presence or, in other words, "urge to look". Normally, this would be hard to chalk up to anything but coincidence, but now that we have cases which indicate that a distant UFO can be fully cognizant of your business at-a-distance, that possibility of making a mental [or other] contact with you at that distance doesn't seem as far-fetched.
The Arizona case is more spectacular, but more worrisome evidence-wise. Here four big circular lights frame the inside edge of the crescent Moon, and, following that display, several small lights occupy the interior inside edge. Well, that's great for alignment. The problem is that some investigation must be done with whatever optical equipment this witness was using to check whether or not false light images can be produced inside it. If such investigation was done in a serious manner, and it was found that no reflections or whatever could duplicate the phenomenon reported, then the case hangs on the reliability of the witness. [and could, therefore be a good case]. The case would be especially impressive as a tightly organized display for an amateur astronomer.
These alignment incidents are significant to our understanding of UFOs, I believe. They are signs of how advanced the alien [or whatever-it-is] technology is, and why essentially no mistakes are made. They are signs as to how effective their sensing technology is at distance, and more bogglingly an apparent "communication" ability at-a-distance, as well. Some of this sounds like Psi to me, but not necessarily. [we need to admit to ourselves that the UFO we see may not be the only UFO in the encounter. The legendary NSA photo analyst, Art Lundahl, told Jim McDonald: The UFOs that worry me aren't the ones we can see, but the little ones that we cannot.] Creepy all around.
